It is that time of the year again, the busy silly season time of the year. You’ve got plenty to think about without having to worry about what outfit your kids are wearing to the Christmas table… and how to make sure it’s matching nicely!
But it’s not just what outfits will be best for the Christmas Day – it’s also what they’re going to wear to their Christmas kinder parties, end-of-school-year parties, dinner dates with friends, catch ups with family…the list is endless.
So what Christmas outfits are going to work best? Santa dresses for girls? Reindeer t-shirts for boys? Should you dress them up in red for that magical Christmas photo? Or will that only make them blend in with Santa's chair?
What will they wear to look at the Myer Christmas windows? This year the theme is May Gibbs and her cute Gumnut babies. Are there any Christmas dresses for girls that will match the theme?
You will be visiting Santaland and the Gingerbread village this year. They will need something casual to wear to the Gingerbread village but something more special to Santaland. They might bump into Santa! They need to be camera ready.
And let’s not even mention how painful it is to find that perfect matching outfit for baby girls and their big sisters! Where will you find a matching Christmas dress and baby romper!?
So, you have your diary full of fun Christmas events (and by full, I mean it is a Christmas miracle that nothing is clashing!) but what to wear…?
We can’t help you with your own outfit. Sorry, Mumma you are on your own. We can however help you out with Christmas outfits for your kids. So, without further ado…
Taking inspiration from Santa’s suit, the Rock Your Baby Santa Baby Dress will put a huge smile on Santa’s face. Christmas red with cream circle’s printed on the front (imitating Santa’s big buttons) and a cute red tulle skirt. Festive with a flair!

The Rock Your Baby Love Heart Audrey Dress is for little girls who love to get in the spirit of Christmas but don’t like wearing busy prints. A more subtle Christmas design which can be worn after Christmas and not give away the fact that it is meant to be worn as a Christmas outfit.
Wear it on its own or over your favourite Christmas themed tee. Pair it with the Arch N Ollie Sherbet Reindeer Blossom Headband to break up the red.

Okay, we couldn’t pick a favourite between these two t-shirts, so we decided to list them both. Our top tees for boys this Christmas are the Rock Your Baby Merry Christmas T-shirt and the Rock Your Baby Never Stop Believing T-Shirt. Both are very festive without being overly Christmassy (is that even a word). We love the rock ‘n roll feel of the Rock Your Baby Merry Christmas T-Shirt but then you can’t go pass the message on the Rock Your Baby Never Stop Believing T-Shirt. If only we could freeze time where they don’t grow up and stop believing in the magic of Christmas.
Wear it with any pair of Rock Your Baby Shorts. These tees may be boys’ tees but who said girls can’t wear them too!? Pair them with either the Rock Your Baby Red Tulle Skirt or the Rock Your Baby Red Farrah Joggers for a big bro, big sis matching combo.

It is the silly season after all, you don’t want to get the sizing wrong and waste precious time trying to organise an exchange! Therefore, we have very easy to read, easy to follow size guides for all your Christmas outfits.
A quick rule of thumb, Rock Your Baby, Bella and Lace and Paper Wings all have very similar sizing. We find Bella and Lace to be slightly bigger (a very small “slightly” bigger) than Rock Your Baby and Paper Wings.
It is always best to consult the individual garments descriptions for any variations in sizing. For example, the Bella and Lace Clause Nutcracker Dress is meant to be worn short and will be a lot shorter than their Mistletoe Dress.
Now that you have your outfits sorted – it is time to think of what to get the little humans-of-joy for a gift. We have a small selection of Christmas gifts for boys and girls this year.
