In a new IKEA commercial, kids were asked to write two Christmas letters—one to Santa and one to their parents. While requests for Santa included a unicorn (yes, please!), games and a guitar, the cuter—aka tear-inducing—requests were for their parents:
“I want you to play cowboys with me.”
“I want you to tickle me.”
“I’d like if you have dinner with us more often.”
When asked which letter they would send if they could only send one, the kids all said they would only send the letter to their parents.
Are you crying? I’m crying! Lesson learned—the best gift you can give a kid is you. No gift wrap required!
