New Way For Kids To Share Christmas Lists
Christmas list POWERPOINT presentations are a thing now. And some of the ones we’ve seen online are pretty sleek.
The idea is to present a list to your parents in the most organized way possible, and you’ll up your chances of getting more stuff. You also want to make the buying process easy by including links to everything.
It’s not a brand-new idea. A kid’s PowerPoint wish list went viral last year too. But it’s gaining steam, because more people have smart TVs that pair with phones and computers. So kids can easily cast onto a big-screen now.
Some woman posted a six-minute video of her daughter Kayla’s presentation the other day. She ended up asking for $2,500 worth of stuff. (!!!) (Here’s a screenshot.)
Another strategy behind it is your parents will be impressed and proud of you . . . especially if they DON’T know how to do a PowerPoint. So they’ll reward you with more gifts. And it’s official: Christmas list POWERPOINT presentations are a thing now.
It’s really not a bad move by the kids. I remember getting the Sears catalog as a kid at Grandma’s house and all of my cousins would go through it over Thanksgiving weekend – marking what we wanted with our initials…hoping our parents would see them (one good thing about having mostly female cousins, the NFL page was all mine baby!). The parents would take the catalog and discuss in the dining room after dinner that night (and yes, we pressed our ears against the door to hear what they were getting us…don’t judge me).
