If I want a present for a friend's child this is the first place I head to. I can always guarantee that there will be something that catches my eye. Gap are great at giving refunds and so if the recipient doesn't like/want it there is no problem in them exchanging it or getting the money back.
The shop is set on two floors. Downstairs is clothing/accessories for newborns to age 5. Upstairs is for older children. Given that most of the children I know are under 5 I haven't yet had need to go upstairs !
The clothing is slightly on the expensive side - but is good quality and always modern designs.
Best thing is that they seem to have a constant reduced rail ! Their clothes are even better when they are half price !
Gap have definitely stamped their mark on the childrens market with their Gap Kids range.
Conveniently located a few minutes walk from Brighton Pier and sea-front, this branch of the American monopoly regularly lures children and their parents in with eye-catching window displays, stripey scarves and cool tee-shirts. The clothes are more expensive than you'd pay in Next or other chains but they seem well made and are usually more fun and appealing. As well as jeans, hoodies, sweaters, skirts and dresses in stripes, spots and bright colours, they sell graphic tees with surf, ski, basketball, superhero and rock logos and illustrations.
I love the long sleeve Rolling Stones tee but really, how many five or six year olds are going to wear The Police one and have heard Synchronicity?!
My sister shops at Gap Kids quite often and I sometimes go in with here and curse my genes for making me tall rather than petite and child sized! Now if you happen to be petite I would highly recommend taking a look because the kids jeans seem to fit better than the adult ones and the t-shirts and tops always come in really cool colours and designs. It's also a great place for scarves and gloves (again for the gloves you need to be petite) usually in bright stripes. I suppose that as my sister always leaves happy and I am jealous then it must be a pretty good place to shop for kids as well! The prices are good- particularly for petite adults!- but also for kids.
A co-worker of mine is throwing a party for her 6-year-old son, and, for some reason, I was invited. I don't know her son, but I know that if you go to a birthday party, a birthday gift is absolutely necessary, regardless of whether you know the celebrant or not. Now, I'm going to this birthday party because I hear there is going to be ice cream cake, and I quite like ice cream cake. I like it so much that I decided that a nice blue and white pin-striped t-shirt from Gap Kids would be an adequate enough gift for me to go to the birthday party, show my face, and then stuff it with cake.
I'm fond of brightness and stripes, and Gap Kids has plenty of clothing that appeals to the brightness and stripe loving part of me. Clothing this stylish wasn't available to me when I was a kid (I usually wore "No Fear" t-shirts). There are Graphic Ts, polos, denim jackets, cargo pants, socks, and loads of other things, all for a good price.
Gap Kids on East Street is where I am ashamed to admit I spend most of my life. Don't get me wrong I'm not one of those awfull mums who spends a fortune on clothes her child's only going to be in for about a month..... actually I am a bit, but when you see the clothes it's just so hard not to be. Apart from all the slogan tracksuits I think the clothes in this shop are just so tastefull and I can justify it because they are really well made. Their sales are great and if you know the stock as well as I do (I need help) you can pretty much predict whats going to be getting reduced soon, also they seem to have sales about every two months. The staff are always really jolly which I always can't understand as the place is always full of screaming kids.
