Our church put up a Miracle Tree, on it are tags with age groups for children. My understanding is we can pick a tag and purchase a gift for that age group and give it.
We do not know anything about the individual getting the gift, only the age and sex. And they do not know who it is from.
I picked a tag for a 13-17 yr old boy.
What do I get for this child? Looking for ideas. (would a gift card to a book store be ok, or would that be the easy way out). Because of the age, I am not sure what to get. And I am assuming these kids are from families that can not afford much for extras.
I thought a gift card would give the individual an opportunity to go buy something they would like to have. I felt a bookstore offered good choices for entertainment or knowledge, whatever he chooses. And I thought I would throw in a package of socks(because everyone can use socks) , and some sort of treat.
