Do you pick an angel off the angel tree?
If you do...how much do you usually spend of their gifts? How much stuff do you get them? Do you stick to their lists?



I've never done it, but thinking about doing it this year...

No. Not anymore. The last time we went to pick an angel, they had all of these requirements of what you could and couldn't give. I mean honestly....Why does someone HAVE to go out and spend a fortune on a toy, when they were just trying to be giving and give a child a toy or something fun that he/she otherwise wouldn't even get?



It's like they were too picky.

I've picked up a lot of them that were wanting game systems, ipods, etc. I am hoping to find a kid that isnt that picky. lol.

Yes. The limit is $25 so I normally get 2-3 gifts that total $25.

Do you still go off their list?

Quoting JessieLeeAnne:" "

There isn't a list here..just says the age and sex of the child and to spend no more than $25 on each angel. The first year I bought gifts for Angels off the tree I spent like $125..I could have donated it to the organization that was doing the Angel Tree Christmas drive but I wanted the kids to get brand new gifts, not ones from thrift stores.
