Transcript for Who should buy the in-laws holiday presents?
I read this article in "Pop sugar." An anonymous woman -- always anonymous. She passionately expressed after years of buying presents for her family and her husband's family that she is done buying for her husband's family. Now the reason being -- All the ladies. She said we're buying all these presents for everybody. We had a baby. We're buying gifts. They didn't buy the baby one gift. They have never said thank you for anything they've gotten. Her family is very thankful. His family isn't. I wanted to ask you two who should be responsible for buying the in-law gifts. I think it's -- it's so that same exact thing happened with my dad. It depends on what's important to families. Gift giving and all that kind of thing, sometimes people are into that. The other side might be just about getting together and hanging out and they don't care about that. My dad said he would always do the gift giving for our family and my mom's side. He went through the same thing and said I ain't giving y'all no more gifts. They didn't appreciate it. It's how your family is. We make a spectacle out of birthdays, Christmas, arrive Arbor day. What's Arbor day? I just threw that in. Whatever the holiday is we turn it into something big to celebrate. And max's family isn't like that. They don't do big birthday. When we first got together, I was like I've got plans. Let's do this. He was like okay. Over time it wore me down. I'm like I put all this energy into giving people things that maybe they don't celebrate the same way or -- my in-laws would be totally appreciative. If max isn't driving it, is it the thought that counts? It's my thoughts. I still want to know what Arbor day is. It's a tree day. I was still stuck on Arbor day. I should have thrown in Valentine's day. She said a lot of stuff after that. After Arbor day she said a bunch about the family. I heard that as well. Thank you. You said you got lost at Arbor day. If you're not going to appreciate it, why do it? Even if you are -- I hate it though because I feel like we kind of lose the essence of what the holiday is now. Of gift giving. It's all about what can I get? What is coming my way? You want to be real, I look at the holidays as a time where, first of all, if you're fortunate you don't have to work for a few days and you can have your family together. For me the gift for me is the time. I don't need anything. I don't want anymore stuff to clutter the house. I just want time. Some people show gifts -- doesn't mean they want something extravagant. Everybody has a different love language. It could be a card, ornament for your tree. At the end of the day as long as somebody appreciates it -- With that being asked, do you two expect something from me for Christmas? Absolutely. I don't expect nothing. I do. I sent you my list yesterday. If you decide to do anything -- this goes out to the network as well. I would love a new couch. That's it. You have been asking for a couch for about three weeks. I know. I mean, if y'all don't know at this point, I don't know what's going to let you know. I need a couch. I saw a picture of your old couch. That was the massive one. This couch is so big. If it were a small couch, I could get you -- the couch is so big. It's going to be so much to buy you -- Every time I sit on that couch I feel like I'm going to say beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. The couch is so weird. It looks like a beetlejuice
