Clothing is a necessity, not a present

I hate when people buy kids clothing as presents (unless it is something special that the kid wants...IE, special jacket even though she has 2).  Clothes are a necessity, not presents.  Presents are things that are a WANT, not a NEED!!!  Am I the only one who feels this way?

I am grateful when people buy my kids anything.  They don't have to do that.  I think clothes are a perfectly acceptable gift.

Besides... I'd rather my girls get cute clothes than a bunch of toys.

When I was a kid I never liked getting clothes for that reason. I am more appreciative now. If I get a kid clothes for say a birthday I also throw in a toy or something fun.

I only have to clothe them in something that fits. Things beyond that area extras and a gift.

My daughter is 4 and got mostly clothes for her birthday. She was grateful and loved everything.
