Something is strange here. Communication possibly.

THAT family? They are your family, and your are theirs.
I'm with you on the disdain for scheduled gift giving, and donating to the SA...but the lying, nah.
Just communicate and tell the truth. Appreciate the person and the thought.

I am going to go kiss my wife right now. B!tchezbecrazy.

Oh and for Christmas this year, we mostly gave/got eachother:
some great family time,
some thoughtful and also useful gifts and gift cards,
a case of coconut water, a case of Pro Penn Marathons,
one or two things I would never have bought myself, but I will probably end up using (expensive bike headlight, gloves, funny books, a few high-end beverages, a picnic chair and blanket for tournaments),
a cool metal water bottle for the bikes,
a hooded sweatshirt,
and some more family time.

Good times. Thankful. Oh and there was an iPad in there, too, and some sweaters and gloves...and some prepaid indoor court time. Great Christmas. Incredibly sweet family.
