Default Something Nice

My ex and I have the children with us 50/50. There has been some bad feelings lately between our family and my ex's. Particularly his new wife feels like she, and her children are not being respected by us. (We don't believe we've acted poorly at all, but she still seems to feel that way)

Does anyone have some ideas for nice gestures towards her and the other family? I'd like to make interactions between the families easier, but am not sure what kind of olive branch to extend. Often things are misinterpreted. The last time we tried to do something nice, (buy gifts for their family for vacation) they took it as a slight against their child rearing skills instead.

Anyone insight from those in similar situations would be appreciated.
