How specific are you with wish lists for the kids??
I'm talking about when the gift giver ASKS what your child(ren) want(s) and you are compiling a list for them to choose from.
Clothes will be on DS1s list this year and I'm getting pickier since he's in school now and I need the clothes to be durable and somewhat "in style". (ok, that one's not a need, but you get what I mean). So should I be specific and say "Clothing in size 6 or larger from Gymboree, Crazy 8 or Kohls only" or just ask for gift cards for this purpose or leave clothing off the list completely? Or just say "size 6 and up" and deal with exchanging (if possible) anything that doesn't work for us? That part seems counterproductive.
He NEEDS nothing, and currently only wears a 4/5, so this would be to have for future. I am perfectly able to buy clothing for my children, but I figure if people (specifically grandparents) are going to buy stuff anyway, it may as well be stuff he can use. So, all that to ask, how would you do it? Super specific or let them buy what they want anyway?
