I make no secret of my love for supermarket kids’ clothing. They’re great places to stock up on basics like leggings, t-shirts, pants, socks, hats and gloves. Just last week, I did a quick trolley dash from the pizza aisle to the clothing section, to pick up some t-shirts for my tot. (True story: the other day, whilst driving past a massive looking supermarket, I said “Ooh, superstore!” and my husband said “We need some wine. Do you think they sell groceries?” It really tickled me that we’re now so used to supermarkets selling EVERYTHING that we have to ask ourselves if they sell groceries.)
Supermarkets are especially great when you’re looking for costumes and novelty clothing for Halloween and Christmas – who wants to spend a fortune on those kinds of outfits? Not me.
One supermarket range I hadn’t yet tried out was Morrisons Nutmeg kids clothes. Sold in loads of their stores and in Kiddicare stores too, Nutmeg aims to be fun and thoughtful with details like scratch-proof necklines, chunky zips for kids to handle and slip-proof sock soles. Their Halloween range is ridiculously good value – the girls’ t-shirt Morrisons sent me to try out (below) is £2. Two quid! You can’t say fairer than that. What I love about it is that even though it’s a Halloween t-shirt, it’s cute too, and my three-year-old won’t look daft wearing it at any time of the year. She wore it to pre-school this week, and it survived a whole day of painting, sticking and tearing around the garden. Hardy stuff.
If you have a little one that you want to dress up for Halloween, then listen up. Morrisons have given me three cuter-than-cute outfits to give away, along with three £10 vouchers. The green Trick Or Treat outfits (below) would suit a girl or a boy, and comes in sizes newborn to 18 months. (Isn’t the spider hat just amazing?) Scroll down to enter!
