Do I Have To Buy a Present?

May 27, 2016

So, my brother...who I love very much just turned 50. Do I still have to buy him a present? In my mind, the answer is no because he's 50. It's not an age thing and maybe it's more of a guy thing, but I can't remember the last time I bought him a birthday present. Is there a certain etiquette to follow? As the kids are small, I totally get buying them a present but at what age does it stop? My wife, I always take care of (but she might say different). Here's my dilemma, my sister is having a little get together this weekend for Memorial Day and his birthday. What if I'm the only one to show up without a present for him? My real life problems...Help!
