    Ok short story, I want to buy my girlfriends family a house for Christmas. Will this be seen as rude?

    They live in rented housing at the moment, and they are saving up for a house, but they have been so good to me and so welcoming.

    I've been with her for 2 years, and her family and I get on great. However, I don't want them to think I'm looking down on them here.

    Anon please.

    ehh, thats really quite wierd :/

    I think as a poster above said, they might feel a bit like a chairty case and you might set their backs up a little bit. I don't think you should personally, since they appear to be doing fine saving up and they might feel better about having a house of their own which they earnt so to speak.
