I have only had items bought for me if the person buying is with me at the time and I have tried it on and really liked it!! Items which involve personal taste are best left up to the recipient to choose.
Ummmm obviously as a child, yes, I was bought clothes as a present and that was usually very exciting.
As an adult, the only person I can recall giving me clothes was my mother-in-law and no I did not like her picking clothes for me. They were not to my taste and very rarely in my size and just got shipped straight off to a charity shop as soon as I had opened the present.....
Just last week my yoga teacher bought me some tops. I feel really guilty though because not only are they too small, but I think they look awful, and would never be caught dead wearing them. I don't like it when people buy me clothes because more often than not, they get it wrong, and I don't feel like I can get rid of them. My wardrobe is full to bursting as it is.
Yes, my husband has bought me clothes a few times before and it is hit or miss - sometimes great and other times not. I really prefer to pick out my own clothes, but I appreciate the thought behind his buying me clothes.
