It’s hard to believe, but holiday festivities are right around the corner! The end of the year is a busy time in anyone’s life; with family gatherings, shopping, and cooking, the season can feel very hectic. And for parents of young children, they can feel even more hectic. From finding the perfect outfit to wrangling them into it, you probably have your hands full. Make it easier on you and your little one by following these key tips for dressing your kids for the holidays.
As adults, we often choose clothing for our kids based on what we like, but putting yourself in their shoes instead will limit discomfort and discord later. It’s important that your kid is: comfortable, clean, and creative.
When shopping for holiday attire, stay away from uncomfortable fabrics. You may think that wool turtle neck with a rhinestone collar is adorable, but your child will be fussing and tugging at it all day. Kids like to play, so choose a fabric that is soft and movable. A comfortable kid is a happy kid!
Where there are children, there are messes. It’s a fact of life. So, when you choose an outfit for your little one, keep this in mind. Try dressing your kids in darker shades so that those inevitable stains don’t show as much. Better yet, add accessories that are made to keep kids clean—like bibanas! They are fashionable and flexible and act as a scarf, bandana, and bib all in one. They’re the best way to prevent stains in style.
Most importantly, choose clothing that showcases your child’s personality. Red and green only for Christmas clothes is a rule of the past. Pick colors and prints you don’t see all the time to let your little one stand out like the showstopper they are! Think outside the box this holiday season.
Dressing your kids for the holidays doesn’t have to be stressful. Keep them looking and feeling festive by following these three C’s. Your kids will be happy, and therefore, so will you.
