- Get some cash.
- Get a gift card.
- Get a birthday card.
Boy: Daddy! How about this one? It's a nice card.I thought that was an interesting. The boy wanted the card because he thought it was a nice one. The father's comment was one that told me that he put value on how much things cost.
Dad: This one? It's a 99 cent card. That's cheap. You don't want to give him a cheap card.
Me? I tend to get the less expensive cards when it comes to kids. I've found that kids seriously don't care that much about a card. From my own observations, they put more emphasis on what the present is. So if it was me and the kidlings in the store? I'd let them get the "cheap" card if they felt it was the 'best" card for their friend. Because this way we could spend those few extra dollars on the actual gift. You know?
So what do you think about the comment this particular father made?
