And it’s not only because of the fact that they have to buy presents. That’s the easy part. But some feel like it’s not OK to give other people’s kids toys for Christmas, Stuff.co.nz notes.
Why is that? Well, for example, you may get the wrong toys that the parents in question have wanted to keep away from the kids. Or you may get something that’s too expensive and create false expectations for the kids going forward.
Or simply you might not know what toys the kids exactly like, want or even have. This way you might buy something that the kids don’t pay much attention and ends up simply as clutter.
So, does that really mean it’s not OK to give other people’s kids toys for Christmas? Not really. There’s a simple way you can avoid these issues.
Simply consult privately with the kids’ parents. Ask them if it’s OK to get them a toy. Share your ideas for the gifts or simply ask them what the kids need or want. This way you can get a nice gift which won’t overshadow the parents’ gifts but it will also be something which the kids like. Easy!
