Yep I sure do!!
Yes their presents are mostly or all clothes
a mixture of clothes and other items
Yes, but items such as swimmers or a dance outfit that aren't everyday clothes
No, we don't give clothes
Yep I sure do!!
My girls always get a couple of nice outifts included in their Christmas stocking - usually something a bit more expensive (that I have managed to get on sale during the year!). They love getting a new dress. Also they nearly always get new bathers/rash vest. These items are not the bulk of their presents and I don't give them every day items like socks and undies and basic shorts & t-shirts. But what they do get helps to pad out their stocking.
Of course ! How else can I justify to DH all the clothes I buy for 2 yr old DS in the thanksgiving day sales in the USA!
When he's older I probably will only buy clothes if he wants a specific brand like I do for my older nieces, or when I was younger if I wanted an expensive outfit/shoes Mum would give me the money to buy them and she would put them under the tree
I never said it was taking away the joy of Christmas, I reworded my post so it no longer says lame - I admit that was a bad choice of words, I still think it is kind of a boring present to get every day clothing or stuff they don't particularly "want" like the OPs example, but as many other posters have pointed at lots of kids love getting special clothes or any clothes as gifts so do what works for you. No need to take offence, I also think lots of other things given as gifts are not that great either (body shop gift sets anyone??) doesn't mean people who give them are "taking away the joy of Christmas" just personal opinion.
and I'm actually surprised at the amount of people that do give clothes, but by the poll they give a mixture of clothes and toys. It shows I'm the odd one out and it's pretty much the norm
