    Well, after voting "zero" in this poll, I got three gifts. But still gave zip. That's the way to go! Just little things, a towel set, some baked goods/chocolates and a scratch and win lottery ticket/money combo from Mom ("you always win!!").
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Thought I'd bump up this thread to see if any new members are part of our Anti-Capitalist group.

    My capitalism has grown to the twenty or more option. Many of my friends and family members spawned this year.

    I have three siblings, a sister-in-law, serious girlfriend who is spending Christmas with us, two nephews, one niece-in-law (?), two grandnieces (there's only an eight year difference between the oldest nephew and myself), an aunt, an uncle, five friends with whom I exchange gifts, and nine honorary nieces/nephews (the children of the five friends).

    I enjoy buying gifts. Or, in reality, I like shopping and Christmas gives me an excuse to indulge.

    NONE! There are no little children in our family so I'm DONE with X-mas presents! My dad died in 2010, so no gift there. My mom lives with me now so I'll take us out for a nice dinner. I'm done done DONE with my freaking toxic sister and if I could afford to I would move to the other side of the country and never see her again, and be the happier for it. Not getting my brother/SIL presents because its not good enough to her anyway. So I am DONE with presents and gift giving!

    Bah Humbug!!

    I put "nine," but "exchange" is a generous term for that -- I buy presents for all my grandnieces and grandnephews. My mom and I tend to donate to each others' favorite charities as Christmas gifts, but I still buy for my in-laws.

    I was about to post that I don't celebrate Xmas when I scrolled down and read your protest.

    Small gifts for some of my colleagues, none for family , maybe a handful for some close friends out of guilt since I always forget their birthdays.

    Let's see... 3 nieces and a nephew, 2 brothers and their spouses, parents, boyfriend, best friend, and my boss. My cousins and I do a gift exchange too. I also have a godson I try to send something to. It sounds like a long list but I don't spend that much money, I knit gifts and make things. I also get a very generous discount from the toy store I manage which helps with the kid gifts I love gift giving, it's the furthest thing from a burden for me

    This year, still 0.
    I don't celebrate any of the December gift-giving holidays.

    Is that better, Peter?

    I do, however, intend to exchange holiday greeting cards
