650 : Gifts

Haiku Heights has the prompt "Gifts"

The gifts worth having
Are not those bought with money
But freely given.

  3. give gifts from the heart
    to show you really care - not
    gifts from the wallet

  10. What a great haiku. I have a son who once had the audacity to complain that his presents were rubbish. He was quite young and dazzled by the advertising that goes with Christmas and had the misfortune to be born to parents who think in the way your Haiku articulates. He is a rather older first born now but every birthday and Christmas he gets a plain red HB pencil to remind him of his ingratitude. He got a special one for his 18th and 21st birthdays.
