Why would you feel guilty? Are they somehow making you feel bad?

I haven't given my mother a GIFT on mothers day in 20 years. We call, we talk to each other, and if the weather is good, we meet for lunch. Same with my MIL...no gift required, just a visit, an acknowledgement that they rocked for raising us, and that we appreciate them.

I don't "require" my kids to get me a gift either...LOL...I'd rather have them clean their rooms and get a long.

As long as you at least contacted them both, and talked with them, the only person that can make you feel bad for that is you...

No i don't think you are. I am a mother and a nana. My children have tight budgets and im aware of this, I would rather they spent the money on things they need. A card tells me that their thinking of me.
