If someone buys you an outfit for your child do you think it's polite to dress them in it the next time you see them/take a photo of them in it and send it to them to thank them?I ask because I'm so over SIL.
I've bought our nephew so many gorgeous outfits that I think suit him, but also match SILs taste and she never ever dresses him in them. I've never seen him in them in person or in photos and I find it so rude! I always buy the size he fits (ask her before I buy it) and buy something that suits the season that he'll be wearing it in so it's got nothing to do with conditions.
DP and I went to Port Douglas 2 weeks ago and bought nephew a onesie that will fit him in summer, it's a life saver one - we didn't give it to SIL in person as she was sleeping, but MIL passed it on to her and we didn't get a thank you (I know he won't be wearing it until summer- or ever, but a little thanks would be polite).
I was always brought up following the etiquette that if someone buys you clothes as a gift, you wear them next time you see them or send a picture of you wearing them or similar and I've always done this up until now, even if I think it's horrible.
Do you do the same?
