  • Gifts n Batteries

    When you buy someone a gift that requires battery operation do you buy the batteries that are needed and include them in the gift

    I always have - my mom always said to not buy a gift like that if you cant give the batteries to operate it

    And I remember getting gifts like that as a kid (I purchase my own baterry operated toys these days ) and being so PO'd that the batteries werent there cause we never had extra batteries at my house

    I think it's the nice thing to do.
    What if they can't afford the batteries....
    they are dang expensive these days.

    I think it's good of you to do that.
    However, I will tell you...if someone doesn't
    include the batteries, I think that's okay too.
    It's still a gift someone gave another.
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

      True. Its the thought that counts, but its nice when the thought comes with four AA Duracell's.

        Give the batteries, nothing like getting a gift on Christmas and not being able to enjoy it. I don't like going out on Christmas to buy batteries.

            I go to a dollar store and buy the one that comes in like 8 batteries in one package. it only last about 5 minutes....but hey the person who receive the gift thinks its an expensive battery.

                If you can buy a battery operated toy, the least you can do is make sure it is able to be played with on the day!
