These Americans won’t give any gifts over the holidays — and they love it

Forty-eight-year old Michelle Morton’s Christmas celebration probably doesn’t look like yours — but you might wish it did.

That’s because, for the past few years, the Raleigh, N.C., resident and her sisters and husband have instituted a no-gift policy for the holidays. “It was stressful and expensive getting all those gifts, when none of us really needed any of it,” she explains. “In order to stop the madness, our Christmas became about being able to spend time with family.”

Now, rather than trading gifts or gift cards (Morton says they tried the gift-card exchange one year and realized “all we were doing was exchanging money”), they all travel to Morton’s parents’ house in upstate New York to spend time together.
