Ooooooh no way would I buy something for someone from a link that they had sent me. I am completely against this buying people what they want, especially adults.
We have cut our list of people we give presents to right back an have asked family if they wish only to send gifts for the children.
My hubby and I don't exchange expensive gifts at Christmas but we do try and find original and unusual things for each other. My Dad is great he loves Christmas shopping but won't spend tons of money. Last year I got a wooden puzzle and a second hand children's book that he used to love reading to me when I was little, he also painted me a picture for my bathroom.
My sister and I always make something for each other. We have done that since we were little. I have started on a cross stitch for her that I think I will make into a cushion. I have bought her a pair of pjs too lol.
