My mother's side of the family doesn't celebrate Christmas at all for religious reasons We got a new coworker a year or two ago and I gave her something (I think it was hersheys kisses, nothing big) and she didn't give anything back. Apparently she also doesn't believe in gifts for religious reasons. Nobody minded her not giving a gift. I believe a gift should be given because you want to, not out of obligation, but there are some social conventions that are difficult to break. Everybody in my office gives a real gift (not necessarily something expensive), so that's what I do.
