In theory it's a great idea, but in reality I've never done it. I do buy things from etsy.com for particular people when I see something I like, and hold onto the item until a birthday. But even then I end up not knowing where to put the item so that I don't forget about it.
I'm not really sure where to post this.
I've heard people mention a "gift closet" before. In other words, they keep a stash of things on hand to give as gifts for birthday parties, new babies, etc. Maybe the gifts were purchased on sale, maybe they are just a standard item you like to give.
I think it is a good idea in theory, especially for parties when you don't know the child well (like school classmates). I think I'd prefer to pick out a special gift for close friends and family members, but I do like the idea of saving money on gifts.
So my question is this: If you have a "gift closet", what do you stock it with? What kind of gifts do you look for on sale?
