Probably kids that don’t have enough money to buy a new one.

Ok, I'm going to have to assume the mother asked for a vacuum for Christmas. If not, the money used to by even a used vacuum could have easily bought a more thoughtful gift.

Come on peoples, times are tough. You haven't ever received a "useful" Christmas gift? Man, I just started getting impractical gifts. :-)

If I needed a vacuum cleaner, that would be a thoughtful gift.

“Ok, I’m going to have to assume the mother asked for a vacuum for Christmas.”

Or the kids knew that their mom’s vacuum was broken and needed a new one. One they could afford.

Sometimes the ‘thoughtfulness’ is in the giving.. Not the gift.

I always got her a power tool or a set of socket wrenches. :-)
