Every year at Christmas, many feel obligated to spend a lot of money for gifts because "it's the thing to do", or they feel like they have to "one up" the gift at someone bought them.  I was shocked recently when my 10 year old Granddaughter asked for a pair of those $300 headphones for Christmas!  I struggled to catch my breath at the thought of spending that kind of money on something that will either be broken or insignificant in a couple of months.  Not to be mean, but I use headphones for my work, and they don't come anywhere near a price tag of $300.  This child has never even babysat, let alone hold a job!  However, she didn't even hesitate to ask for such a lavish gift.  While I am not even considering her request, I would be interested to know if you spend $300 for headphones for a child?
