Clothing as a Gift: He Said, She Said…


The Chief and I are usually pretty in sync with our views on things.  I’m not really sure how we got on the discussion but it went something like this.


Me: “I don’t think it’s fair to give kids clothing as a Christmas Present?”

Him: “Why, I got clothing as presents?”

Me: “So did I, but the way I see it a Christmas Gift should be something that the receiver enjoys and a small child isn’t going to enjoy clothing, besides clothing is a necessity not a gift unless the child is old enough to appreciate and want new clothing as a gift.”

Him: “Well the child should learn to appreciate anything you give them.”

Me: “True, but I still think clothing is something parents should provide as needed not something they should be passing off as a gift.”


So Readers…We are in limbo…

What Say You?

  1. I would say compromise :) 1 toy per 1 outfit :) Kids always get bored with toys, at least mine do, but they always need clothes cause of how fast the stinkers grow :)
