I am pg and lots of lovely friends have given me lots of baby stuff, for which I am very grateful. This is my third so I do still have lots though, but still, it's very kind of them. They never want any money for them so I usually buy their child a little present and them some wine/chocs, or a voucher.
Anyway, this morning someone I don't know too well gave me 3 bin bags of clothes!!! I don't know what I'm having yet and these were mixed clothes. I came home and sorted them into boys and girls clothes (they are mainly girls - I'm pretty sure I'll have a boy). What do I offer her for them? I don't want to be paying her for all the clothes when if it's a boy I'll have bags I don't need. Baby not due for 24 weeks!
did she say she wanted paying? if not then I wouldn't give her anything - she's been friendly and probably wanted rid of them. You could give her the girls stuff back if you find out you are having a boy I suppose...
a little thankyou card would be enough if you really want to do something. I just recently gave away about the same amount of clothes to someone I haven't known for that long, I was just glad to have someone to give them to. Don't worry about it.
Don't worry about paying her, she probably wanted to get them out of her house and thought giving them to you would be a good way. I know I feel sentimental about baby clothes but there will be a point when I have to say I'm not having more kids and I have to make myself part with their old stuff.
I know that lots of my friends here pass bags of clothes on. I think the general view is that what goes around comes around.
I think it's lovely. Admired something on a friend's 6 month old DD recently and realised it was something I had bought for another friend's DD and most recent baby to wear it is the 3rd one to do so! All of the wearees have been friends so it's really nice imho.
