Now who doesn't love gifts? Whatever your age may be, please don't say that you don't like gifts! In the heart of the hearts you just love them. It is always a surprise when you own something you least expected but what if that some thing is actually something you least expected and never wanted 😜.
When a new baby is born, we all want to gift something. A new parent definitely deserves some surprises...what all with that puke and poop cleaning, breast feeding and eternal tiredness, the parent would love to receive something nice, but when you have no great ideas to gift or if you are quite broke (which mostly is not the case) to gift anything...it is just ok if you give nothing rather than giving a used/torn/unwanted thingy wrapped as a gift! I used to have a neighbor who gifted torn teddy bears to Zaara on her first bday :) It was quite evident that they were used and past expiry date! I cannot fathom the reason behind this act. She neither loves nor hates me but ghastly looking teddy bears to a baby! Gosh! I can never do such a thing coz poor babies won't know a thing. They will play with and eat up whatever you give to them. OK . STRIKE OFF THE SECOND PART in case of my baby. ;)
So the next day to Zaara's birthday, I placed the teddy bears along with my daily trash bag. I mean that's the least I could do to show my displeasure! I really hoped they saw it!
They say its not the gift but the thought that counts - but do all people really think when they gift? Yes it is the thought that counts, but what exactly may be the gift giver thinking when he sends a family a stale sweet box or oversized t shirts, a broken decorative item, quite an old box of chocolates, and many other old worn out gifts? Are they avenging for some unknown reason? or do they wanna test and see if family is safe after consuming their sent food, so that they can consume the other box!?😋
To me the only thought that goes in the gift giving is cleaning and clearing their own homes.
The unwanted gifts keep revolving around houses just like in the below ad😏
