When I started writing this post I actually came across several articles about hand-me-down etiquette. Really? I didn’t know it was so complicated. All I know is that when we brought Savannah home several people came by with bags and bags of clothes from their little ones and we happily accepted each one! And in turn I’ve passed along a few outfits to other new moms as well! It’s the circle of life. Or the circle of cotton anyway.
But just because you may be passing along used clothes doesn’t mean you can’t make it a cute, fun gift! Instead of a plastic grocery sack put the clothes into a cute gift bag (it takes the same amount of time!) and add a cute tag! I happen to have one for you.
This is a gift that is practical for the giver and the receiver. For the giver: it is economical, clears out space, and is quick to put together. For the receiver: new (to you) clothes! Items you don’t have to spend money on. It’s a win-win!
