Mom Sparks Debate About Re-Wrapping Daughter’s Birthday Presents For Christmas
November 22, 2017
Christmas is a magical time of year for children, but for mothers, it can be fairly stressful.
Sure, watching your kids’ faces light up as they unwrap all their presents is one of the best parts about the vacation, but for many, the cost puts a serious strain on their finances. That’s why for some, it’s tempting to re-gift certain items their children may not even remember previously receiving. That’s what one mom’s considering for her own daughter this season to avoid clutter, but not sure whether it would be acceptable, she posted on the U.K. parenting forum Mumsnet asking for others’ input on the matter. Here’s what she had to say 😛 TAGEND
“We threw my daughter a 3rd birthday party for 15 children and she got a lot of playthings, some of which I put upstairs in the attic( because I wanted to bringing her out a new doll each week ). Now Christmas is coming up and I am wondering, am I being unreasonable to re-wrap some of the toys she opened for her birthday to give them to her for Christmas? Will she remember unwrapping them the first time? ” — Dec1 3girl
Some mothers had no problem with re-gifting. “I do this. I was caught out a couple of times. I told her I couldn’t find the other one so asked Santa to send a new one, or I sent it to Santa to re-wrap it in Xmas paper so you could open it again.” — AtSea1 979
Others, however, thought it was a bad notion. “I just think it’s defining a poor instance as an adult. It’s lying actually. Dedicate a few bits and pieces for Christmas and give experiences if there are too many playthings. Get a toy box. Invite less children to the party. 15 for a 3 year old? Too many.” — BubblesBuddy
