  • I always e-mail family and close friends a wish list. Simply list his sizes for clothes and shoes. If you do get toys, return them.

  • If they ask you what you're child would like, tell them he has so many toys and could really use some clothing instead. Only if they ASK. Otherwise, graciously accept whatever gift they give.

  • Specify it nicely on the invitation. Include the size of clothes they are in and his/her shoe size

  • Many people will ask so just let them know that your little one is in need of clothing.
