Angel gifts = dollar store

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My friends dd got gifts from the Angel Tree and it was pathetic dollar store crap. These kids are probably not going to have more presents for the rest of the year. Buying them some crap toy from the dollar store to make yourself feel good sucks. If you can't buy a decent toy, don't do Angel Tree.

I say if you can't afford to buy your own Kid's Christmas gifts, then STFU complaining about dollar toys.

So you're all saying she should be grateful to have a crap toy that falls apart that day. Great.

I've learned from recieving when I was younger, give a gift that grows like books. Doesn't have to be the most expensive book or on the top of the best sellers list but a book that maybe inspired you at that age or stands out for you.

Here's a thought, now it may be kind of hard to grasp, so get ready,     you ready,     ok here it goes,    how about have the kid take care of the toy,, Marissa has gotten toys for there and know what, she still has them & this was a couple of years ago.

If you aren't grateful for whatever someone gives you FOR FREE OUT OF THE GOODNESS OF THEIR HEART then don't beg for handouts.

No one owes you anything.
