Cooked I would call a meeting & tell them since they forgot all the occasions I assume you donít want to exchange anymore so we will not be doing anything for them either. In my family a big thing is made of all birthdays. BDay person picks out a favorite for the meal & a cake is made. Gifts can be jobs done for another or even something from the $ store. When they were young they helped me make the meal now that they are adults they buy dinner either in a restaurant or take out or if $is tight they buy the fixings and we do it together. As adults there is a limit on what we spend for them as we are retired now but I still make a family meal of their favorites.
