Everyone in my family wants money for Christmas this year, children and adults, is this appropriate as a gift?

My sister started telling us to give my neices money for Christmas, this started when they were 10 and 6 years old. This bugs me because she gives them the "stuff" while we give nothing but money. For her and her husband we usual get them a gift certificate, however this year she is asking for money too. Now everyone is jumping on the band wagon and they all just want a cash gift. Is this okay for Christmas or anytime really?
