As if divorce isn’t complicated enough, it tends to get even more tricky during the holiday season. When you're divorced and it’s Christmas season, you are faced with the question, “Do I buy a gift for my ex-husband?”

For some, it’s a no-brainer, but it can be quite confusing. It can be difficult to figure out an appropriate gift for an ex-husband. You basically know everything about this man. You know his likes and dislikes, but due to the current nature of your relationship, you must be very careful when selecting a gift.

Choosing the wrong gift can send the wrong message to your ex. When it comes to divorce, it is essential that you purchase appropriate gifts. As a gift to you, I have created a list of appropriate and fun Christmas gifts for your ex.
