    Default Do you give your kids clothes for Christmas?

    One of my sil's kids get a mixture of cloths and toys, other sil's kids get just cloths as anything toy wise they are given they destroy within a week. When we have kids they will get a combo of both.

    My son has and always will get clothes as part of his presents at Christmas, we were always given nice going out, outfits on Christmas and birthdays and he will be the same. We don't have an endless supply of money for buying clothes and he outgrows them so quickly if he didn't get them for Christmas and birthdays he would have hardly anything to wear, I have asked my sisters and parents to all buy clothes this year as he is now wearing a size 3 at 19months and has hardly any really nice clothes that fit him. We have bought a couple of toys for him and the rest is practical things he needs eg. King single bed and bedding as he has almost outgrown his cot.

    No clothes here. It's a necessity for them, I'm not going to gift them something they need. Presents are generally a bigger gift

    Yes. Generally clothes he really likes or character clothes. He loves the little short undies with transformers or other characters that you can get a matching singlet with, those sorts of things i am more than happy to get him for christmas as they are things i wouldnt buy otherwise.

    Interesting.

    My 2 girls love getting a new dress and a bikini for Christmas (yes a bikini - VicPark will hang me up now). But that's it. A few toys toys, some books, a new Micro scooter, and a wigwam each this year (they are obsessed with making cubby houses out of sheets and doonas and chairs).

    I wouldn't buy my son clothes for Christmas though. Never thought about it and yes it's a double standard but boys clothes don't really excite me nor my son (he's probably too young) whereas my girls squeal at the sight of a new dress or a new pair of shoes (probably take after me on that one).

    Although in our house I tend to think books aren't really gifts - DH's father is a well known children's book author and illustrator so we get kids books a lot through him, and I also run the book fairs at DD1's school, so I get a heap then too. the kids would get several new books every week or so (inc special ones) so I don't tend to give them too much as presents.

    I do sometimes. Not basic things I'd buy anyway but a nice dress or outfit that I put some pretty hair accessories and bangles with. DD1 in particular adores clothes, shoes, bangles, hair accessories etc.

    I'm so jealous at you getting free books. Books are a huge deal in our house and my kids would do backflips at year round freebies

    Yes,
    Every year we get the kids (4 girls) are nice outfit or dress usually from Pumpkin Patch, they love it and usually wear it for Xmas day.
    This year I have also bought them a nightie for their stocking.
    I love that they get clothes for Xmas, I would rather new clothes than another new toy that just gets chucked with the rest of them
