You can imagine with a large blended family how complex the scheduling of Christmas must be. We never had that problem. We did Nana's on Christmas Eve and our house on Christmas. So, Eliza's family Christmas was on the 16th. We would be back in California by the 25th. Toys, toys, toys. Clothing too, and everybody got into the act, even little Dash and the puppy. My cat was able to avoid everything and stayed in the room. It was great and I didn't have to coordinate anything.
