"Receiving clothes for Christmas. Love it or Hate it?"


  

          

I don't ask for much during the holidays. If anybody asks what I want I tell them hook me up with some dvd's or some blu ray's, a tv series something simple. But every year someone from my family buys me clothes that I never end up wearing. I always get asked why they don't see me in the shirt they bought. Like Martin said "the thought was beautiful but the gift was all wrong!!!" Buying people clothes for people is a gamble, it's such a personal thing. If I was buying someone clothes I would leave them with a gift receipt just in case they didn't like it.

i have definitely evolved into that "what do you get for the guy who has everything?" type of asshole. my girlfriend doesn't even try, she will just cook for me (which unfortunately she is pretty bad at) and get extra wild in the sack (where she more than makes up for her culinary deficiencies).

my best friends are the two cheapest motherfuckers ever, i swear! one of them is a lawyer who pulls in low-sixes. we were in sint maarten, not a cheap vacay, and dude is like "i dunno if i should get my girlfriend anything. she loves chocolate, maybe some kinda dutch or french chocolate." i went to a dutch shop and dropped about $125 on dutch goodies for my dutch buddy who lives in colombia. my boy bought all of $9 worth of chocolate, $6 of which he ate that night. a $3 fucking tube of chocolate! i remember maybe twice he got me something for my birthday, ever, to the point where i stopped getting him shit, too. my other buddy is more broke than anything, i guess, usually he will come through with some doja or something though.

my parents have also given up. my mom just looks for something i am already buying and will pay for it, usually a pair of sneakers or something. she is cool, she really WANTS to do it. my pops usually pays for my league pass or tickets to a game, though i am racking up the IOUs there because i get to so many games for work/free that we almost never go as paying customers now.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

My grandparents tried to pull fast ones for a few years, getting me and my cousins all the same shit from outlets they'd been to or "clothes" from FootLocker, that just end up being 4X polo shirts. I can't do shit in a yellow 4X polo but get clowned on.

my parents hated that I wore baggy clothes as a kid but now that I'm older and no longer wear them they tend to buy me shit that's way too big. It's like they caught on too late lol

kid would be a 8.5 and walk out with some size 12s. "ohhhhh, i don't want em to be too tight!" and "you'll grow into 'em, baby!"

on the flip side i heard some major payne sounding mf'er in the foot locker telling his kid "you don't go with your mother no more, she'll be buyin you more fuckin size 14s." kid walked out with a size 11 pair of triaxes.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

No one has to spend their bread on me so when they do, in any capacity, I appreciate it.

My styles have not changed over the years, so those who know me know what I like to rock. I am simple.

they buy me things I'm bound to wear like dress shirts for work or a nice sweater or scarf. They usually add a receipt so I can swap out sizes/colors.

(a) I'm EXTREMELY specific with sizes and styles and things I would want, so the margin for error is minimized, and (b) everyone in my family and my girl's family knows to leave gift receipts in case something needs to go back, for whatever reason. No hard feelings, everyone realizes it's a risk (it goes both ways as I buy people clothes, too) but the thought counts and I don't mind making some returns to go find something that better suits me.

I use discretion in my gift giving. If I have no idea about someone's style, size, or whatever, I don't buy that person clothes...I go another route.

and neck scarves. My sisters always buy me fashionable sneakers and hoodies that I would never buy for myself. They do a good job. My brother just gets me books or gift cards.

My wife, mom and grandma know my style fairly well and don't usually mess it up. Sometimes they try to push me into something outside what I usually do and there's a pretty low chance of it working. But sometimes I'll wear it.

My stepmom though, she is more addicted to shopping and getting deals than actually thinking of what I wear and getting stuff I like. I tell her I'd rather have two good shirts than 10 Kohl's sale deals, but every year it's the same thing. She scaled back quite a bit this year on the clothes and that was good. Actually probably her best year for clothes gifts for me.
