What’s the question most parents dread in the lead up to Christmas?
“WHAT DO WE BUY FOR THE GRANDCHILDREN THIS YEAR?” Yes, the question most parents dread doesn’t come from their children at all, it comes from grandparents. About this time of year, the phone calls start…
“What can we get little Harry and Scarlett for Christmas …?
…We’ve no idea what they’re into these days”. Trends change so quickly don’t they? Kids have such sophisticated tastes, and they seem to have soooo much stuff already. So, you put it on your to-do list and then forget all about it.
The problem is…
Grandparents don’t want to buy them Xbox games, digital or electronic nonsense, or indulge them in designer outfits. And we all want to cut down on plastic rubbish. Money is a popular option now-a-days, but it doesn’t feel like a proper gift just handing over the hard cash and never hearing what becomes of it.
Grandparents need your guidance
Direct them to something that will appease their instincts for buying something that’s really good, useful, worthwhile and educational while also being fun and exciting for the kids (also avoiding last year’s disastrous hand knitted jumper and useless wooden puzzle that isn’t even out of its wrapper).
Grandparents do like to have a warm feeling that they are contributing to the child’s future development and wellbeing. Money values are something they hold dear to their hearts, from the days when money was real and not just digital.
So what’s the solution to your dilemma?
Send them a link to coinit-in.com, and let them choose from a fabulous range of Money Box Trees – that allow children to see real money grow as they count and save. It’s really fun to use and holds 100 pound or euro coins.
Let Grandparents feel involved
Grandparents will love the option to start them on their saving journey by putting some coins inside as part of the gift.
