What to Look for When Choosing a Baby Christmas Outfit

There are quite a few things to consider when choosing your Christmas outfit for your little one:

Easy diaper change - Can you easily change your baby's diaper without taking on and off an entire costume?

Comfort - This perhaps is the most important factor, otherwise you will end up with a grizzly baby! Make sure your baby won't be too hot or cold in the outfit you have chosen. Look for materials that are soft and comfortable on your baby's skin. Make sure the outfit isn't too tight or will rub against the skin.

Will the baby wear the Christmas costume, outfit and accessories? - Before buying your costume consider the accessories and outfit itself. Will your baby pull off any hats, headbands or other accessories that are essential to the outfit? If so, it may be worth considering a different one.

Mobility - If your baby is mobile (crawling or walking) you'll want to make sure the costume allows him or her to crawl or walk or they will end up frustrated and unhappy.

Baby Reindeer Coat

Some Christmas outfits aren't warm enough to wear outside on their own so why not get a reindeer coat for the festive season?The coat could be worn for parties, for a festive walk on Christmas Day or even throughout the whole of December.

Fancy Dress Christmas Costumes for your baby

There are many different costumes you can dress your little one in. Boys can be dressed in little Santa outfits. Girls can be little angels. Or they can be a snowman or even a Christmas tree. Look below for some inspiration.

Make Your Own Baby Christmas Costume

You can quite easily make a Christmas costume for your baby. The good thing about making your own costume is you could potentially dress baby in clothes that your they already have. Or if you have to buy them, you could wear them again for everyday wear after you've finished with your christmas costume. Here are some ideas:

Baby Fairy / Angel - use a white outfit (such as white dress, white tights or socks and a white cardigan). Make some baby fairy wings. You can make your own fairy/angel wings or buy them quite cheaply. A white headband will finish off the outfit nicely.

Elf - Use green and red clothes for an elf. Then top it off with a green, red or brown hat. Again these can be bought quite cheaply or you can make your own elf hat.

Christmas suits

Let your little boy be the smartest in the room with a suit. A suit could be worn on more than one occasion, perhaps for Christmas Day and those Christmas parties.You could also sell a suit on ebay after your baby has grown out of it to recoup some of the cost.

Baby Santa Christmas Hat

Keep the Cost of Baby Christmas Outfits Low

Buying a special outfit for just one day or one party can be quite expensive. But there are ways you can save on the cost. Here are some ideas:

Sell your outfit on ebay after use - If you are just going to wear your baby Christmas outfit once, why not sell it on ebay after you've finished. You may have to keep it until the following year to sell it and get the best price but then you could use that money to buy a toddler Christmas outfit.

Buy secondhand - As people only use their baby Christmas outfits once as their child grows out of them quite quickly, they quite often sell them secondhand - (see above). Why not check out ebay and see what outfits they have on there for your baby.

Make your own - It's quite often easier and simpler to make your own Christmas outfit. For example, you could use red and green clothing and top it off with a baby Santa hat. These clothing items could then be worn as normal everyday wear.
