my dad says I'm cheap and he's mad over a stupid gift card
My parents have custody of my brother's 7 kids. They range from ages 2-14.
We bought the 2 yr old a small tool set for Christmas. (Technically it was free because I got one for my 2 yr old and they were buy one get one free)for the other 6 I have each of them 4 candy canes (different crazy flavored gum filled ones), a small Christmas notepad with stickers, a Christmas pen, (the note pads and pens came in packs of 8 at Walmart in the stocking stuffer aisle)and a 6 dollar gift card to dollar tree. I put it all in cute little gift bags. I even gave my 9 yr old a gift bag with the same thing.
There is something for everybody at dollar tree. I brought the bags over to my dad's today and told him what was inside and he had a fit. Told me that I should have got them something worth more. Like a 10 or 15 dollar gift card...to Walmart. Apparently Dollar Tree is below him.
I can't believe he's throwing such a fit. I know my dd will love it. She loves the arts and crafts stuff at Dollar Tree. What do you think? Is it a completely horrible gift? I think the kids will appreciate it even though my dad doesn't.
