My little brother is not getting anything for Christmas because my mom can't afford it.
December 10, 2012 at 8:35 PM
My mom has a ton of bills that she has got behind on and can not afford Christmas. I am thinking about instead of getting my Dh a large present getting him something smaller and getting my little brother a larger gift and saying it is from my mom, his dad, and our family. Btw he is 13.

Edit:

I decided to buy him a pair of skates that are $199, which is crazy to me, but he really wants them. But they are on sale believe it or not. They are normally $300 and they are giving away a summer pass to the skate center he normally goes to which is a $60 value. I figure the pass will be from my family and mom, and the skates from santa :)

    One year that happened to my aunt and my dad went ahead and did the same thing for her, my aunt was so thankful for my dad. To watch her cry w happy tears made my Christmas that year! Do it!

     That's really sweet of you. I'm sure whatever gift you buy for him he'll love it.

    I am just afraid she will get pissed because she don't like accepting help.

    I can ask my hubby about the ps3. He works at Gamestop, so he might know of some good deals online or in store
