Our son (aged 10) has asked for 20 euro to go to the shops and buy gifts for us and his sisters this Christmas. Its the first time he would be doing so unaccompanied (well, when I say unaccompanied, we would be in the shops with him but would let him go off my himself for a few minutes)
So I am wondering, are there any suggestions we should give him to make it easy for him?
have your children ever gone off and got you gifts on their own and if so, what did they come back with?
I know it is the wrong time of the year, but my lads (5 and 7) love shopping on their own (with mammy hovering in background) at car boot sales.
The deal is they have to decide in advance what they are looking for & check every stall before spending their money. They’ve learned not to say how much money they have & not to buy at the first stall. And they are only allowed buy things that are not damaged
They are really in tune with what each other & daddy like. They usually get me something for the kitchen or garden or slippers etc. Someplace like Heatons is good, because in has a range of stuff….
Snuggly slipper boots for me and snuggly slipper socks for his sisters would be perfect!!! Penneys have great ones. Hint has been dropped…
