If you decide to buy someone clothes for Christmas, then you are taking a big risk. When you buy clothes for someone else, it is very easy to purchase the wrong size, style or color. Nobody likes to receive the gift of clothing that doesn’t fit. If the clothing is too small, the recipient will feel fat. If the clothing is too large, the recipient will assume you think they are overweight. If the clothing doesn’t suit the recipient because of the style or color, they will either exchange it for something that flatters them or let it gather dust at the back of the closet.
