For the last few years this has been a routine around here. Something that was bought during the year ends up under the Christmas tree.
Shopping with me goes like this. My wife will come home with a sweater. She will ask me to try it on and see if it fits. She will then ask me if I like it. I can't say no or I would hurt her feelings. So then the sweater is kept. It works like this for most of my clothes. She puts the item away and I soon forget about it and that's why it's so easy for her to put it under the tree. So if I have not been part of the decision it leaves my mind.

So I dug around in the closet and found a sweat shirt of some kind to wear in the house. Sweater problem solved.
