You want your kids to look nice for all of those people you never see. 

Pyjamas

Give the kids something festive and cosy to wear while they open their presents in the morning!  Look for holiday pyjamas and slippers in hues of red  and green  or with fun holiday characters on them.  To stay warm, go with materials like fleece  or flannel . For a touch of Christmas spirit and flair, look for matching pyjama sets  for Mum ,Dad ,kids , and even baby .  Get out your camera  and enjoy capturing the happy faces of these little cuties.     

Sleeper 

The kids will be nestled and snug in their beds with these super soft PJs, made to keep toes cosy. The one-piece style traps in the heat to keep your kid warm and comfy.

Nightgown 

Little girls will feel both comfy yet feminine in a Christmas nightgown!  Designs like candy canes and snow flakes are popular.

Separates 

Pyjama sets can easily be matched with other sleepwear, making it even more fun! Pyjama shirts with snowmen, penguins, Santa or elves are all cute choices. Plaid bottoms go with anything.

Slippers 

Keep those feet toasty with fun holiday slippers!  Look for characters to brighten the holiday cheer. Fleece-lined slippers are extra snuggly. 

For the Girls

Most girls won't mind getting dressed up for the holidays; any excuse to wear a dress!  Explore these options for fun, festive, cute, and comfortable ensembles for girls. A lot of these holiday outfits and accessories can be reused throughout winter.

Outfit Options

Dress 

Look for winter materials (such as velvet ,wool ) with a girly touch to make her feel extra special.  Think about a bow, head band, a sash, or some sparkle.

Skirt 

Stick to the warmer materials, but dress up the outfit through skirts with pleats ,tiers , or a soft embroidery .

Tops 

Long sleeves are perfect for winter, and with many roll necks  offering holiday designs, it makes for the perfect pairing with a skirt or jumper.  Check out jumpers  for more warmth.

Bottoms 

Great for school parties and the more casual holiday affair, tights ,leggings , or trousers  will keep her warm while giving her some holiday sass.

Accessories

Dress Shoes 

Mary Janes  are a girl's wardrobe staple.  Go for patent leather  for extra shine.

Hair Accessories 

Hair clips ,bows , and head bands  will add just the right touch to any holiday outfit. Complementing colours or patterns is a must. 

Hats 

A clean and dressy cap will work well for casual holiday ensembles. Beanies are comfortable and warm and some come with pom poms.

Handbags 

Little girls LOVE their accessories!  Complete the ensemble with a purse that matches the outfit.

For the Boys

Dressing up your little man can be hard at times, so for the holidays keep him comfy and warm, yet presentable; as presentable as possible until he starts horsing around and ruins the nice holiday clothes.

Outfit Options

Suits 

Use the suit only for the most formal of occasions.  Don't forget to pair it with a tie  or clip-on . If you can, try and get the least chafing materials.

Shirts 

Pair an Oxford shirt  with trousers and a jumper for an instant dress-up option, or wear it alone for a smart casual feel. They can be paired with khakis, too.

Jumpers 

Always a nice touch for any holiday occasion, boys will wear jumpers if the moment is right.  Think roll necks, wool , or cashmere for additional comfort.

Trousers 

Nix the jeans  and try corduroys  or trousers .  Chinos  also work well for holiday parties.

Accessories

Dress Shoes 

A staple for any boy's holiday outfit.  Sometimes nicer boots  can be pulled off too. 

Belts 

Keep those trousers on their waist with a sleek leather belt .

Socks 

Boys can never have too many socks.  For dressier occasions, go with trouser socks . If you're aiming for casual, socks with winter characters work just as well.

Hats 

For the finishing touch on some outfits, a newsboy cap  will do the trick.

Bundled Up

We can offer a few suggestions to keep the kids warm and stylish, but you will surely want to see our guide on Winter Clothes for Kids to get more elaborate recommendations. 

Peacoats 

When it comes to outerwear , the Peacoat is a great addition to any child's wardrobe.  A trendy addition for both boys and girls, you can dress it up or dress it down.

Gloves 

Bundle up with a pair of gloves created specifically to fight the elements!  If you invest in a quality brand, they are sure to last for years to come. Mittens are equally protective and potentially less difficult for kids to put on. Many will come with a clip to hook onto a snow jacket.

Scarf 

A scarf can battle that gruesome winter chill and prevent your child from catching a cold.  Look for durable materials for outdoor play (fleece) and look for nicer fabrics for holiday outings (cashmere).

Cold Weather Boots 

When the skies get grey, it's time to put on the winter boots.  Many come with rubber soles to avoid any slips, and you can surely find a style and pattern that suits even the pickiest of tastes.
