It’s that time of the year again. That time when our children are a constant barrage of requests for toys, games, and devices. Instead of giving in to their whims – and we all know that’s what they are – maybe you should take a moment to consider something they need instead of something they want and help make this Christmas memorable.
For instance, we break our kids’ gifts up into four categories: Wants, Needs, Wears, and Reads. That doesn’t mean they only get four presents to open on Christmas morning, it simply means they receive at least one gift that they want, one that they need, one that they’ll wear, and one that they’ll read.
When thinking of the Wear category, think of what types of kids clothes you’ll want this year. There is a wide range of kids clothes from which you can choose. We tend to focus on the necessities, like socks, shoes, pants, and underwear, but there are plenty of other options. For instance, this year we’re getting our seven year-old a new winter coat because that’s what he needs.
The holidays are a great time to get a jump start on swimwear or offseason clothes that your child may need. Sales abound for clothes that won’t be worn for another six months, so be on the lookout for good deals. Or maybe your little one really enjoys a certain cartoon or character. What better time to splurge on a new t-shirt than the holidays? They’ll be excited to sport their favorite character and you’ll add another piece of clothing to their closet.
When it comes to kids clothes, your choices are nearly limitless. Whether it’s a new pair of kicks your child wants or something they need for the upcoming year, take time to shop around and find just the right item to add to your child’s wardrobe.
