Winter Accessories for Families
Below you can find a list of 5 Winter Essentials. As we love supporting local, many of these recommendations are Australian owned companies.
1. Water Proof Jackets
Everyone needs a good rain jacket in Winter, and in Melbourne, even during the rest of the year sometimes! Rainbird Clothing have a great range of kids and adults winter jackets.
They are waterproof, windproof, and come in a range of fun colours and designs to suit your family’s personality.
The Stowaway Jackets are a favourite for walks in the rain, they are light and waterproof and pack up really small. For little ones who love to jump in puddles, check out the jump suits.

2. Ugg Boots
Are you even Aussie if you don’t own a pair of Uggs?
This iconic brand is famous for their cosy classic sheep skin boots. Wear them inside or outside to keep your feet warm this winter. There is a huge range of different colours and styles for men, women, children, and even babies. We get ours from Ugg Express online, they have fantastic discounts all through the year too!
For those heading out for walks where there are muddy puddles, gumboots are a must have Winter shoe! No more soggy socks, and you can feel comfortable walking in the rain without getting cold wet feet. Check out Merry People who have a fantastic selection of colourful winter gumboots for both kids and adults.
We also love UGG Express who have some lovely high waterproof boots too with warm insoles. They come in 3 different colours too.
4. Warm Beanie
Warm those little ears up with a stylish beanie this Winter. Now the kids can look good and keep cosy. We love these unisex beanies from Little Renegade Company. They are comfortable, keep the kids warm and with 4 beautiful unisex colours they are a beautiful addition to your child’s Winter wardrobe.
5. Thermo Bottles and Food Jars
Thermo bottles are fantastic for getting out and about in Winter time. You can bring warm food and drinks for the kids, and know they will stay warm, even after a few hours.
Thermos have drink bottles and food jars in a range of different colours and designs especially for kids.
And for us parents, on the way to work, out for a walk, or for those outdoor sports days when you need to go watch the kids play soccer or footy, you can find travel thermos and coffee cups to keep warm with a nice hot coffee or tea.
