Gift-giving: Selecting a Sweater Color

Do you love getting clothes for Christmas or does it make you cringe? Recently, as I was looking at the back of everyone's heads in my Sunday School class, I was thinking about some easy ways to choose a color which stands a chance with a gift recipient.

Three to think on:

What color sweater are you hoping for this Christmas?

Cringe is probably my first instinct, unless it is something I have specifically asked for like the boots that my husband purchased me for this Christmas (he didn't have to lift a finger; I did it all for him, aren't I kind?). I have to add though that in my family clothes are not usually considered a "gift" as they are a necessity and therefore not frivolous enough for Christmas. I relaxed that "rule" a bit with Katie and might buy her something that is more expensive and in no way a necessity! (like the snowboarding clothes I have on layaway for her right now)

How nice of you to help your husband with his Christmas shopping!

I received notice today that the belt my husband bought me for my birthday has shipped. Yay! Now I will have a black "jean belt".

Great birthday belt!

As Little Miss Hard to Fit, my preference is actually for gift certificates. But were I to pick a colour and style for a gift sweater this year it would be a dark gray sweater dress ...

Y'know, I have been thinking about sweater dresses, but that's probably as close as I will get, given my own figure challenges.

Love dark gray, though. My favorite gray is kind of a deep pewter. I think that's the gray of the ring around edge of my irises.

My sister was kind enough to give me a gift certificate for my birthday. Lately, though, I've been having trouble getting around to shopping.

I don't like to receive clothing for gifts. I wouldn't mind a gift cert to Eddie Bauer though! I don't usually buy clothing for Xmas either, but sometimes will pick a shirt for the boys. Never for my daughter. NEVER!

Books are much safer!

Like you, Rebecca, I favour the darker, richer grays. The lighter ones wash me out.

But I'll agree with Jody, too -- books are good!
