Our Top 5 Winter Picks! + One for Mama
Posted on May 27 2016
Brrrr the temperature is starting to drop, and with that in mind we’re taking a closer look at some of the things that’ll make you do the double take…….
Lulu Funk PJ’s
They’re so super soft and snuggly, your little ones will want to live all day and all night in them. And that’s totally cool because they’re ultra breathable and moisture wicking, meaning moisture is drawn away from their little bodies. Great if you have a sweaty night time sleeper, or kids that like to spend the evening hours running round like only tiny monsters can! Currently in 2 funky designs that kids will love and made with bamboo and organic cotton, so they’re gentle on skin. What more could you (or more importantly, your little ones) want?
Lamington Merino Socks
Ok if you’ve never heard of Lamington….where have you been???!!! Lamington have the most stylish, warm and functional knee-high socks on the market, and they’re made right here in New Zealand!! Whhhhhat!! From , stripy, to spotty, to cabled, you’ll never be left wanting again when it comes to socks. Made with snuggly warm fine merino wool, these suckers stay up! We love our Lamingtons. Our very first Lamingtons, I bought 6 years ago for my eldest. Fast forward 6 years and I’m still using them on my youngest (3 kids later); no loss of stretch, no loss of lustre! These socks add colour to every outfit, but most importantly, they are super duper warm. On a cold winters day, these are the only socks my kiddies will be wearing! Oh and did you know that they have adult sizes………www.lamington.co.nz
In Bed With Fred Linen
Ok you’re gonna want to go check these guys out! At 100% cotton and boasting a 300 thread count, their Quilts feature 4 super fun and funky prints. And you know we love colour – it’s what being a kid is all about!! They also have 3 different sheet sets to choose from; go matchy matchy or mix it up with a contrast, so much fun to be had with these. Just what the doctor ordered to banish those winter blues! So where do I get this linen goodness you ask?! www.inbedwithfred.com.au
