    Only if you want to give him/her a gift.

    Some people make better friends than they did partners and continue to give gifts out of friendship. Others don't for their own reasons.

    It is totally up to you.

    Like Cat said, if you are friendly with your ex and want to get him a gift, then it's totally okay. If you were buying gifts for the kids to give him, well, they're grown up now and can buy their own gifts to dad.

    It really depends on what you want to do. You are most definitely not obligated to get him anything.

    I am friendly with my ex, sending her a Christmas card right now.

    There is no right or wrong, it is just what you want

    Totally depends on how YOU feel about the ex. What do YOU want to do?

    Depends on whether you want to or not. Depends on your relationship with her as well. Are you friends? If so it might be nice to give her a gift set or christmas basket.

    It honestly hinges on whether you want to or not. If you want to and your idea is to wrap up road-kill... I would suggest skipping that. :-) (I didn't have a good divorce)
