What are your thoughts on buying your ex a Christmas present from the kids after you are remarried? I think it is a bad gesture and shows a lack of boundaries. I encouraged the kids to make a gift, but I will not buy the gift. I think it teaches the kids that Christmas is not about the gift as much as the thoughtfulness. I struggle with the whole concept of needing to buy a gift for someone who I am no longer in a relationship with. I think it is now the responsibility of the new partner of my ex to make sure a gift is purchased for the kids to give. Thoughts?
