Snow may be idyllic, and lovely - but it also presents quite the sartorial challenge. After all, how many times have you sent a wee one out to scamper in a snowdrift only to have them return home sodden, frozen to the bone, or both?
Many parents will avoid buying snow gear on the grounds that it’s only useable for a portion of the year - but the same thing is true of shorts and sandals, and that doesn’t stop us from snapping them up. In terms of an outlay, the cost-per-enjoyment is wildly worth it - any one who has watched their child have a snow fight or make their first snowman will attest to that.
