    Thumbs up Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal rocks!

    Hi everyone,

    (Im not sure if Im allowed to post this here, so mods feel free to remove if inappropriate.(

    If you haven't done so yet, please consider donating to the Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal. It is guaranteed to make a lot of kids and adults happy over the Christmas period. All gifts will go to the Salvation Army and will be distributed evenly along all national branches. It's a fantastic cause to back up!

    Though I have spoken to some staff at our local Kmart and also with staff from other Kmart shops and it seems boys and adults miss out the most.
    I tend to agree. I walked into our local Kmart this afternoon and there was a large pile of purple and pink gifts for girls, about 20% for the boys and 10% for adults. So I felt a bit sad and disappointed
    Im on a very very small income, but seeing the boys being that under appreciated, I decided to add an extra 3 boys toys to my donation from last week. They're only small toys as I cant afford much, but still....
    Next week when I get my pension, I'll add a gift for a grandfather and a gift for a grandmother.

    So again, if you have a few dollars left after your Christmas shopping is done, perhaps consider spending those few dollars on a gift for the KMart Wishing Tree Appeal

    yeah guess you never think of the adults etc as it's easier to buy a toy. I will have to put something under the tree for the adults

    Any suggestions for parent or older boy gifts? I tend to buy younger child gifts because that's what I'm familiar with!

    Im just getting the adults a pampering pack like bodywash, bodylotion or even something like a hamper with tea, choccies, bickies, etc.

    Teenage boys would be more sports items like a scooter, a dartboard, etc.
    Maybe also a science kit for older kids, remote controlled cars, planes, helicopters, etc.
    I like the little "Hex bugs" and those "Nerf" toys look great too. Even a good boardgame...

    I have always bought from where I want, wrapped them up (or put them in a gift bag, then put them under the tree at Kmart with a tag on saying if its for a boy or girl, age etc.
