This is a difficult one for me. My OH has two sisters and a brother. I never see them. I am not even sure they like me. My OH is estranged from them and has been "banned" from the house of one following a heated argument.The other lives in London but comes down to her sisters for Christmas. So, we dont see them.
I have in the past racked my brains for suitable gifts. I dont know them so I have little to go on. Then I got gift tokens/ cards but they are not a favourite of mine. I saw the TV. They actually suggested money. So I have got three nice money wallets and have put money in them - the amount I would have spent on a probably naff) gift .... or actually slightly more than I might have spent.
I dont want to offend so I thought I would pout a note in explaining that I have decided to give money this year as I think it is more versatile and they can put it to what they want where they want. However, I dont know how to word this nicely.
Can someone good with words suggest?
( PS I have always given my own family money to spend how they want unless they specify a gift. But these are not my family).
