I asked a group of nine and ten year olds-
Which is better and why? Making presents or buying presents?
Here are some of my favorites:
I think buying presents is better. One reason is I’ve never made a present. Another reason is that it takes a long time depending on what you’re making. After making it you have to wrap it and if it is delicate it might break.
I would make a gift. Like when I made my mom’s birthday present. I took a plain white cup and painted it. When you make a gift I think the person you give it to will think it’s more special.
I think buying. Why? Because you wouldn’t have to assemble it. Plus you couldn’t make a DS game. Or could you? Besides, it would take a long time.
I think that I would like to give a gift that I had made because I think that it is more caring. I love to give.
