Your Siblings Won’t Be Able To Thank You Enough If You Buy Them Any Of These Gifts This Year
‘Tis the season to go broke, if you are even getting people presents. It might seem like it’s expected, but, honestly, they won’t get mad if you just show up. If you and your siblings are still playing like you can afford to buy each other gifts and haven’t given up, more power to you. The beauty of gift giving as Latinos is that it must always be at the expense of someone, or be meant to get a laugh out of todo la familia.
