One of the great things about the month of January is the major clearance sales going on at so many stores. It’s a great time to stock up on items that can be embroidered for gifts throughout the year.
An easy, inexpensive gift that kids tend to like is an embroidered fleece sweatshirt. Check out the back of any Old Navy at this time of year and there are oodles to be had for less than $5.
Last year I personalized a fleece sweatshirt for my daughter’s friend, Juliette, wrapped it and gave it to her, only to realize a year later when I saw her wearing it around the playground that I had embroidered the name, Juliette with three Ts. What a moron I am! So to make things right I am stitching up a new fleece for ms. Juju with only 2 Ts.
One of the added benefits of giving a gift of a personalized fleece is the joy it brings me to see kids running around on the playground wearing a garment I personalized for them.
