The Step-daughter is 34 and she called to remind my husband that we have to get her new boyfriend a Christmas present. Then went on to tell my husband how she might not have my present for our Christmas exchange because it hasn't been delivered yet. She has known about this exchange for over a month. The date of the exchanged was actually pushed two days closer to Christmas because of course the 35 yr old step-son couldn't make the other date. So, if we actually kept the actual date she would have showed up with no present for me but, we better have one for her new boyfriend.
This might be minor, but, my birthday this year is the first birthday my step children have celebrated with me. And, low and behold they showed up without a gift. Arguing at the party as to who was suppose to purchase the gift. Both blaming the other. Thanks for listening.

I think maybe this guy means something to her and she wants to make sure he feels welcomed. I really don't take it as a dig on you.

I would have told her if you want him to have a gift so bad I guess you better go buy one. I would not get any one of my kids or their boyfriends a gift if I was told to do it. Gifts are something we willing want to give to someone not something that is required. Just my thought.
