Rather than buying individual Christmas gifts for your cousin, her husband and each of their children, give one Christmas gift to all of them that they can enjoy as a family.
Some family gift ideas are as follows: A gift card to a local video store (include some microwave popcorn and candy); a book of passes to the movie theater; a board game appropriate for each family member's ability level; a gift certificate to a nice family-friendly restaurant; a donation in the family's honor to a charity that's important to them; a gift basket with gourmet coffee and tea, muffin mix, pancake mix and syrup, jellies and jams, etc.
You'll be amazed how much money you can save this Christmas season by giving one family gift rather than several individual gifts.

It's difficult shopping for members of your extended family, and the number of people makes it expensive. Worse is when the family asks you for gift ideas.
Make it easier on everyone and think of group gifts that can be purchased for the entire family.
