Gift Idea: If you ever have bought gifts of clothes for a teenager, you know how difficult it is to get the fit, the color and the style all right.
My favorite teen gift story comes from the mother of one of my daughter’s friends. She bought clothes for her daughter, brought them home, blindfolded her daughter and tried them on her. The mother would decide what looked the best and fit the best and return the rest. When it was time to give the gifts, no disappointments about fit and no returns necessary.
I have to admit I never tried this myself – just too much like a sitcom for me, but I hope it brought a smile to your face as it did mine each holiday.
Come back each day for another good gift idea for this holiday season. (Each day’s idea will also be posted on Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.) Read the whole story at THAT SPECIAL GIFT, PART 1.
