New Orleans Valentine’s Day Clothing Gifts

The clothes we wear are an expression of ourselves. They can reveal our personalities, our tastes, and even our values and political beliefs. So what could be a more personal, touching gift than a carefully chosen piece of clothing or accessory?

Buying clothing for someone else isn’t as difficult as it may sound. Consider these tips when shopping for your Valentine’s Day clothing gifts:

  1. Browse their closet for ideas. Take a peek in their closet to get an idea of what they like and what they already have. Does she prefer skirts or dresses? Pants or shorts? Does he have enough button-down shirts and ties that he actually likes to wear? Are there any colors, patterns, or styles they seem to like? Don’t be afraid to jot down a few notes or take another look if you have questions while shopping.
  2. Pay attention to what they wear. Most of us own clothing we don’t actually wear. In fact, Fashion United reports that over 80% of the average American’s clothing was not worn in the past year. After you check their closet, take into account what they actually wear on a regular basis. Avoid styles they no longer want to wear, and if you see clothes they like that no longer fit, try looking for something similar in the right size.
  3. Listen to their wants, needs, and complaints. Have you heard her complain she needs a new dress or pair of heels for date nights? Has he mentioned that he needs a new watch? See if you can remember anything they might have said, and make a note to yourself if they ever point out an item they like while out shopping together.
  4. Use their clothing to find out their size. Look at the clothes they wear and check what size they are. Keep in mind that different brands may size their clothes differently, so it’s always best to take actual measurements with a tape measure.
  5. Check the returns and exchanges policy. If you follow these tips, there’s a very good chance you won’t need to worry about returns or exchanges. But it’s always worth making sure you can easily return or exchange any clothes you buy as gifts just in case.

With these tips in mind, you’re ready to start shopping!
