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 out there is actually very cool hair accessory for boys.
Sometimes the boys might be a bit forgotten compared to the girls who are looked after very well with their accessories. Therefore we honour and focus on the boys in this article, and give you some inspiration of options out there for boys.
Why is all the focus always on girls?
Really, why is it that the focus always is on the girls? Why is it always the girls with the pretty bows, clips and hairbands to make themselves pretty? Boys want to be pretty and fashionable too right? And surely, boys like to dress up too. Maybe a bit cooler, probably not with a bow, but surely 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 really.
I have to say, I have never seen to many baby boys with hair accessories though. Either they are not really popular 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. Hats can 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 warmer and more tropical climates we can’t really go without the sun safe hats instead.
Previously I have written an article about sun hats, If you are interested to read 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 certain sports by example, to keep hair out of the face and potentially also to use as a sweatband. But also 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 very cute ones available and if I would have a boy, I would definitely get some of these hairbands to give him a cool look. So cute! They have clips for boys too, however, I personally don’t really 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 to check out the boy clips, they are available here too.
Sunglasses for boys
Sunglasses can be a cool and fashionable accessory for boys as well, at the same time, it is a great item to wear for sun-safety as well, 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’t protect one of the most important body parts, our eyes.
UV rates can bring permanent damage to our eyes. Therefore if we choose to buy our little people sunglasses, make sure that they have good UV protection and offer sun glare reduction for your child’s eye. 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 simply 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 very important 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 a great 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 definitely have to get her involved as she has a strong feeling about her outfits so she can have a say in her new sunnies. Also, it has to be really 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 cool headbands for my cousins now I know of their existence and I may get some cool sun-safe sunnies too. 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 by the water consider the polarized options, this helps to reduce the sun glaring for your babies or children’s eyes.
I hope you enjoyed reading this article and it equally informed and inspired you about boys accessories.
