When I gave my daughter socks for the third night of Hanukkah, she burst into tears.
Momlogic's Julie: Hanukkah gives us EIGHT nights of presents, so they can't all be extravagant. Last year, I had picked up a cute pair of Juicy Couture socks for my 6-year-old daughter and wrapped them for her third-night present.
When she saw them, she burst into tears! I guess socks are not her idea of a good gift.
I felt kind of bad that I had given her socks as a gift, but then figured it might teach her a good lesson. We talked about the kids who have no socks or warm clothes, and how she should be grateful for ANY gift she receives, no matter how small.
But still ... I definitely wasn't giving any socks this year.
Moms, have you ever had a Hanukkah or Christmas FAIL in the gift-giving department? Tell us about it.
