There are so many cute Christmas outfits and North Pole infused pieces for children these days. Really, we're spoilt for choice. I don't think it's worth spending too much unless it's something like a hat or leg warmers that they might be able to wear for a few years on a row. So.. I have tried to be restrained! Still, there are some real bargains out there and because they are so cute, it's hard to resist!
Primark is a good place for budget seasonal items. It's a little harder if you have a baby boy I find but it's always worth a look, even if Primark is rather reminiscent of a jumble sale! I found some leggings for Felix in the girls section. No reason why they can't be worn by a boy, especially if they are only setting you back a couple of quid! F&F clothing at Tesco also has an extensive range of seasonal wear this year. I got an adorable fleece sleepsuit from them, red with a Nordic style print.
Polarn O Pyret have a beautiful new print this year called Nordic Nights. I think it is absolutely beautiful. I grabbed a sleepsuit in this print during their 20% off sleepwear & free postage deal the other week (I was also able to use my 10% off voucher - bargain!). PO.P are fantastic for festive threads; their classic red and white stripes look Christmassy but can also be worn all year around. They have some fun items like braces, bow ties, and my favourite, neck ruffle/collar. OK, it's a bit silly, but it's also adorable!

eBay is another place I always check for a festive bargain. I love leg warmers for the boys. Ethan doesn't wear them much these days but they are still very handy to have around. You never know when you might need an extra layer of warmth on your legs or arms and they tend to be one size fits all (though of course, the bigger you are, the smaller they will be on you!). I recently bought Felix a pair with Christmas Trees on for a couple of quid on eBay.
