Top 10 Annoying Gifts To Give A Kid
Knick Knacks (seriously, what kid wants a Willow Tree people figurine? I like them, but I’m not a kid)
Toys that play music - kids may like them but most parents want to throw them through the window after hours on end hearing it.
Giant stuffed animals - smaller ones are fine because they’re easier to put away but unless you want to build an extra room in the house, don’t get the kid a five foot high panda.
Clothes the kid’s already outgrown – It’s called a phone, pick it up and ask mom/dad what size the kid wears.
Nursery decor that clashes with the actual nursery – If you don’t know the theme of the nursery, call and ask, don’t assume. How good will it be if you buy something jungle themed and the nursery theme is the circus?
Crochet blankets - Okay, this one is tricky. I crochet all the time and make blankets, but think about how many parents must get already!
Seasonally inappropriate clothes – Why the hell would you give a kid a summer outfit at Christmas?
Elf On The Shelf doll – Seriously creepy and anyone that’s seen Poltergeist will stay the hell away from this one (yeah yeah, no elf doll went after Robbie, but it was a stuffed clown…..close enough).
Tacky baby shoes – Nikes? Sure. Baby Sketchers? Rock on. Bejeweled flashing shoes when you stomp them with boingy laces? Seriously annoying.
Onesies with tacky wording on them – Unless you’re already in on an inside joke with the parents, stay away from the seriously cheesy wording on onesies.
