The jury is out on the benefits of giving nest eggs, so don’t worry if you don’t have one to pass onto your adult children. Instead, consider the thing that most personal finance experts do agree on, the importance of good personal spending habits, and begin to teach your kids how to build their own solid financial futures.
If you want to do everything you can to make sure that your adult children won’t ever find themselves in the position of the fictional Plumb Family, consider asking their young selves to use Gift Surveys the next time they are looking to make a meaningful purchase or generate a wish-list. It really is possible to get your kids the things they want, will use and appreciate, while teaching them about the value of a dollar.
Families are discovering that Gift Surveys allow them to make (gift) purchases with relaxed confidence. At their completion, everyone knows how much an item will be used or appreciated, what it actually costs, what the warranty is, what possible future use there might be for the item in question… Forwarded Gift Surveys especially help out-of-town family members get to know their grandchildren, nieces and nephews better. They help underscore the fact that some things are just too expensive to hope to receive from one person. They reduce the number of under-used items in our homes. In fact, when you add it all up, Gift Surveys actually do a lot of good for the tiny tiny trade-off of not receiving a complete surprise, which may or may not, be pleasant!
The definition of a nest egg is a sum of money, typically saved over a long period of time, destined for a future meaningful purchase, for example a home.
