7. I''ll answer as well

1) About the same, unless you count that (lime many longtime married couples) big home improvements and repairs, like our kitchen makeover (new appliances, cabinet repairs, cabinet painting, replacing the countertops) will be considered presents to one another.

2) About half done, with the last of the shipping taking place tomorrow and everything else will be ordered or purchased for local giving.

3) I'd say about 1/3 gift cards and 2/3 things. I usually try to do gift cards at a particular interest. So if one of the kids/nephews/nieces has a Nintendo Switch, I may get a Nintendo gift card for their online marketplace.

4) About 50/50. I had books ordered gift wrapped from B & N and sent to nieces and nephews. It is a timesaver. However, I've done my share of store shopping as well.

5) Somewhat. Younkers (part of Bon-Ton) was good for certain things, and their closure didn't help. The older daughter was a fan of Forever 21, but their recent store closures have made it more difficult to shop and more hesitant to buy gift cards there.
