Do I get something small for now ?

My auntie’s birthday is coming up soon and I don’t know what to get her. I would love to get her something nice like some honora freshwater pearls but I don’t think that’s a possibility with the financial difficulty we are having right now. The holidays are rough for us because we have a birthday so close to Christmas and another birthday a few days after new years. Let me not forget that I have 6 children to worry about getting presents for and then worry about presents for the family gathering or birthdays we have.

I am really hoping to find something that is nice and doesn’t cost too much. I really would love getting her some pearls but it might have to wait until after income tax before I can buy her some. I am hoping to be able to get her a card and something little and then tell her that her real gift will come after April. Do you think it would be a little ghetto to basically give an IOU on a good gift ? I am sure my aunt wouldn’t care either way and its the thought that counts but I really want to let her know just how special she is to me.

6 kids with 2 birthdays around Christmas? That has to be rough especially when they get to be older. At that point I might start celebrating the Independence Day with gifts.

I’m sure your aunt understands that the with 6 kids money’s tight especially around the holidays. I don’t think she’d think it was ghetto, I think she would think it was sweet you got her something that nice at all.
