This question gets brought up every year between my wife and I around the holidays. Do you also buy the batteries for gifts you give that are battery operated? Is it expected?

Personally I feel if it's for a child and they're likely to want to play with it right away then put batteries with them. If it's for an adult then they can buy their own batteries. They are expensive, and with all the gifts we have to buy, the expense of batteries can put it over the top.

I'd love your help on this so we can put it to bed. Please take the poll below:
