There are three types of people in the world: those that don’t have kids (yet) so they have yet to experience the joy of dressing babies; those who have children who are over the age of 5 and therefore have amnesia about how hard it is to get babies dressed; and those who are right in the thick of it – those who have babies and toddlers.
Getting babies into holiday outfits is like an intense negotiation sessions. It can take hours, you’ll find yourself bribing people, you’ll dig your heels in and then it will reduce you to tears, . Your best bet when dressing babies up for the holiday is to keep it (relatively) simple with accessories that celebrate the spirit, but won’t end up in a fight for the history books. Here’s our favourite (i.e. easiest) baby holiday accessories!
1. Baby Bowties and Hairclips
Relatively easy to put on (we say that cautiously), bowties and hair clips are statement accessories that don’t need to compete to stand out. Because of their teeny-tiny size, they look adorable even (actually especially) when paired with pyjamas.
2. Jolly Socks
Totally functional and totally adorable, holiday socks are a great accessory because they keep tootsies warm! Adding holiday socks can turn any run of the mill jumper or ensemble into a festive one! Beware as socks usually end up in mouths, down shirt sleeves or shoved between the car seat and the backseat of your car.
3. Ho Ho Hats!
If you can’t get on board with how cute holiday hats are, then we can’t get on board with you. Providing the same functionality as socks by keeping baby’s heads warm, holiday hats tend to be an accessory kids can get behind. Because of how easy they are to put on, they make for the least stress-inducing accessory – when your baby pulls their holiday hat off (instantly) you can pop it in your pocket or vainly attempt to slide it back on.
