    An update about my son R., who has moved out of state to KY. He got a job and he will come to get the car and start making payments. Now another question has come to my mind about handling Christmas. He and I have agreed to not exchange gifts. This us hard for me. He has cost me a lot of money, BUT, I do want to get at least a $50.00 gift card. Any feedback?

    That sounds appropriate.

    Nothing wrong with giving him a gift card.

    I agree, a gift card seems appropriate.

    Hi Gail, I think that is very appropriate. Christmas is Christmas and if it makes you feel good to do this, then to me, its the right thing.

    Agree it is about giving and $50 gift card is appropriate.

    Rather than give him a gift card, why don't you subtract $50 from what he owes you?
