    Default Do you give your kids clothes for Christmas?

    That's so beautiful. They're really lucky! He must love being able to give them something so precious as well.

    I give clothes for Christmas- usually a few pretty dresses or outfits.

    This year DD will also get a school bag, pencil case and a suitcase because she needs them....they're all bobble art ones that are über cute though.

    She will get other fun toys and things things, but I just think it's more fun to have things to unwrap even if their essentials....

    As a non-custodial uncle I decided a long time ago that I will not give my niece and nephew clothes as Christmas or birthday presents, because I remember as a child being disappointed at soft presents. I figure giving essentials like socks and underpants to a child as a present is akin to giving washing powder or frozen vegetables to an adult as a present. If I did see an item of clothing in store that would be good for my niece or nephew to have, and I was to give it as a Christmas or birthday present, it would form part of the same present as something else, like a new toy. They would not be two separate presents.

    I only give special clothes as presents. Like handmade dresses etc not just clothes from target/kmart etc. Just so that it is more a present not just an everyday thing.

    Yes I give clothes, myself and now my little one has grown up accepting that clothes are a luxury, not a necessity... Were over the moon to get ANYTHING for Christmas, whether it's clothes, a lunchbox, drink bottle, sheets for his bed, food... And this will not change in the near future. He also gets some toys or handmade items for Christmas, birthdays etc .

    We never do also dont do clothes for birthdays or anything, IMO its a drag to get something you need for christmas something you should be getting all year round. I hated getting clothes for christmas so I wont do it to my kids.

    I know his books were carried by Yarra libraries (by BF is a children's librarian at one of them). He's not as well known as the more popular ones but gets a lot of critical acclaim.

    Helpful?
    Did he recently put out an autobiography? And works a lot with Margaret Wild?

    No and no. He works independently.

    I'm going to be embarrassed now as maybe he's not as known as we think
