A while ago, I was chatting with another mum who has a baby boy the same age as my youngest baby daughter. She asked me, ‘do you think there would be nice baby accessories for boys like you have for girls’? I was not quite sure at the time, but after starting this website, and researching different topics, I found a very cool hair accessory for boys.
Sometimes the boys might be a bit forgotten compared to the girls who are very well with their accessories. Therefore we honour and focus on the boys in this article, and give you some inspiration for boys’ options.
Why is all the focus always on girls?
Really, why is it that the focus always is on the girls? Why is it still the girls with the pretty bows, clips and hairbands to make themselves appealing? Boys want to be cute and fashionable too, right? And indeed, boys like to dress up also. Maybe a bit cooler, probably not with a bow, but indeed they like some accessories and nice outfits too.
I was not fully aware just yet, but I recently found out that there are most definitely accessory for boys too, and there are pretty cool ones. I almost wish I had a boy to try them out, but I only have girls, so I have never been searching for boys accessories
I have to say, I have never seen to many baby boys with hair accessories though. Either they are not famous, or people are not aware of their existence. Let’s have a look at what is out there.
Baby boy hats and beanies
Baby hats and beanies must be the most common boys accessory. HCapscan be either used for fashion or comfort purpose. Cute baby hats and beanies are more commonly used in colder climates to keep our little ones warm, while in the more generous and more tropical climates we can’t do without the sun safe hats instead.
Previously I have written an article about sun hats, If you are interested in reading more about what to look out for with sun-safe hats, and options available you are welcome to check it out here
Hairbands and clips
In teenagers and adult men, I have seen the use of hairbands often, either used as a functional or fashionable accessory. Hair accessories are used functionally in individual sports by example, to keep hair out of the face and potentially also to use as a sweatband. But even they are used as fashionable accessories. We have seen hair trends in both teenagers and adult men.
Why do I never see a baby boy with cool hair accessories? Have you seen a baby or toddler boy with hair or other accessories?
There are charming ones available, and if I had a boy, I would get some of these hairbands to give him a cool look. So cute! They have clips for boys too. However, I personally don’t love them so much as the hairbands; some others might do. I have seen a couple of really cute hairbands for boys on the following site, or if you are interested in checking out the boy clips, they are available here too.
Sunglasses for boys
Sunglasses can be a calm and fashionable accessory for boys as well, at the same time, it is a great item to wear for sun-safety as well; the dual purpose is always great. Our little people spend a lot of time outside, and their eyes are not fully developed yet. The UV rays can be damaging for their little eyes. We worry about sunscreen, hats and long sleeve to protect for the sun, but for some reason, we often don’twatcht one of the most critical body parts, our eyes.
UV rates can bring permanent damage to our eyes. Therefore if we choose to buy our little people sunglasses, ensure that they have adequate UV protection and offer sun glare reduction for your child’s vision. Consider a polarised option if you spend much time by the water.
If your children are anything like mine, every item they wear has to be comfortable to wear. Otherwise, they won’t put it on. Therefore make sure the sunglasses are comfortable, so your child wears them.
Another thing to keep in mind is the material the sunglasses are made from. Other than that, sunglasses have to be comfortable; it is also essential that the sunnies are unbreakable kids can be pretty rough with their stuff. So the glasses have to be resistant for this. There are many sites with unbreakable sunglasses for babies and toddlers. Some give a years warranty as well.
I think sun-safe sunnies are an excellent accessory for kids and I am going to order my girls some new sunnies soon. I definitely will go for the ones with a strap on for the baby version. And for my eldest one, (4.5 years old), I have to get her involved as she has a strong feeling about her outfits to have a say in her new sunnies. Also, it has to be comfortable to wear as she is quite sensitive to the things she wears on her body. Everything that is itching or irritating is taken off sooner, rather than later.
Let’s be fashionable boys, and have some fun!!!
So there you go, most definitely there are boys accessories. Maybe not as many options as for girls, but they are most definitely there. I am keen to order some trendy headbands for my cousins now I know of their existence, and I may get some sun-safe sunnies for them. Am I considering to purchase sunnies?
Check which safety level you like to buy. If you buy sunglasses for your baby, remind there are straps to buy so baby won’t pull them off. Make sure you go for comfort as well for successful use.
If you plan to spend much time on the waterside, consider sunglasses, with polarised options, this helps reduce the sun glaring for your babies or children’s eyes.
