I LOVE late Christmas gifts. A friend of mine and I always schedule our gift exchange for after C Christmas. It stretched the holiday a little longer.

It should be the thought that counts so I'd be happy that someone thought enough of me to get me a gift regardless of when I received it.

Besides if someone is out of town or away for some reason, that isn't up to you to "plan ahead" for their plans!

No, not at all but Jesus is the reason for Christmas and truthfully I'm good without gifts truly. When I know that family and friends are all safe,healthy and happy I couldn't ask for more.

Don't worry one minute about it, they are churchgoers and will understand.

If you have already purchased the gifts, then give them to them on their return.

If they're going on holiday so soon before Christmas of course they shouldn't mind. I haven't even bought all my presents yet, let alone wrapped and distributed them.

I LOVE late Christmas gifts - it is so unexpected that the gift provides a lift especially in the cold barren month of February.

Of course not . . . it's lovely that you're giving so many gifts but people shouldn't be expecting them. So it's a nice surprise to receive them late!

We usually exchange gifts with extended family before or after Christmas because we can't all be together in the same place on the same day. I would view it as normal and would not mind.
If someone actually minds that they are given a gift after Christmas they are ungrateful, IMO.

Life happens, so I think it's ok. Right now the Lego sets my mom got for my kids are missing, so I am pretty sure they will get them after Christmas.

add me to the 'no gift' list

BUT, years ago when we did still exchange gifts, there were several folks who received their gifts after Christmas because every other year we are out of state for Christmas.

Nobody minds getting an early gift, so why should they mind getting a late gift?

I prefer no gifts also....getting together for lunch or dinner, and having a good time, is gift enough...early or late.

Anyone who goes on holiday particularly early should fully understand if their gift comes after Christmas. I'm sure it'll be fine.

Guess what? I forgot to distribute Christmas gifts when I went to church last Sunday. Do you think anyone would mind if they got their gifts after Christmas?

The reason I'm asking is that some of my church friends are already on holiday by next weekend. Meaning that I will have to give my gift to them late! (after Christmas).
