Do you like getting clothes as a gift?

I think everytime I’ve ever gotten clothes I’ve had to exchange them for different sizes or return them. I don’t mind doing this but gift cards are easier. You?

Gift cards are always appreciated, but it’s the thought!

It’s really the thought that counts but I agree with you. Most of the time it’s the wrong size or not really my style.

I love getting clothes as gifts. I hardly ever receive the wrong size so I don’t have to exchange it.

Depends -

If it’s a thoughtful gift where the person actually considered my preferences, etc. then yeah I would like it no matter what. But sometimes I can just tell someone just chose something out of convenience. During those times, I’d prefer a gift card. Haha.

I think it depends if the person knows me or not.

Most of my friend usually buy me shoes because they know I have an obsession. Haha! I think all of them know my shoe size already. The clothes are a little tricky because I’m always really picky about the fit, and some sizes are just totally off compared to others. :)

Gift cards are awesome!

It’s nice having someone put effort into choosing an item of clothing for you, but I have to agree with Opfiend. Gift cards are better gifts than clothes, unless of course the person who picked it out knows your style (and size) very well. Otherwise, just save each other the trouble and go purchase a gift card. It will still be very much appreciated.

i’d take gift cards anytime, unless it’s my husband who’s giving me the clothes (he’s got great taste!). others just never seem to know what my size is or what type of clothes I go for. :)

I prefer gift cards aswell. They are less of a hassle and you can buy something that you really like.

I’ve gotten some things that are perfect, but that is a rare occurrence. Usually it’s from my sisters or a close friend, but they know me very well and no my size so they have a better chance of getting it right. In general though, I prefer gift cards. I love that feeling of having endless possibilities!

A gift is a gift and I shouldn’t be ungrateful or rude, but I prefer when people give me money or gift cards because my style is specific. Therefore I can buy clothes that I like :)

I love both! It depends on the person giving it to you though. Because if your grandma gives you clothes that are not particular to your taste then you would rather a giftcard, whereas if your boyfriend or even bestfriend knows your taste then clothes are great as a gift!

It depends on from who I am receiving it. My BFF and my hubby know exactly what i like and exactly what size to buy so it fits me well so if it’s from them, i don’t mind receiving clothing.

From other people though, it’s usually a hit or miss so i’d prefer other stuff or nothing at all :)

I prefer to just get a gift card, unless I say I want this is a size whatever. They tend to buy what they think is cute, and you may not think is cute, or You.

Gift cards, all the way! I tend to be very picky (although I prefer the term ‘eclectic’!), and it’s hard for people to find things that are my style and that fit just the way I like them. Although, my mom has gotten a lot better at it since my little sister grew up and started going shopping with her!

Unless I can pick, then no. I have two brothers and no sisters and really boys are just bad at picking your size

i never thought about it before but I don’t like getting clothes as gifts. Nobody can pinpoint my style correctly and I usually don’t end up wearing it. But accessories and other things I’m okay with.

It’s a gift! The worst or not-my-style the clothes are, the more I feel challenged to mix it.. or even to re-design it <3

I never get clothes as gifts anymore, I guess everyone figured out how difficult it is to get clothes for me LOL. I like to get gift cards where you can spend the money anywhere, but then again I do like something heartfelt.
