10 Thanksgiving Outfit & Costume Ideas For Babies & Mini Turkeys
I like to use any and all occasions as excuses to dress my baby to the nines, and with Thanksgiving literally just around the corner, what better opportunity? I took my brood to the mall the other day and came up with a few fun ideas, but nothing that was Thanksgiving themed.
Everyone needs a Pilgrim’s hat for Thanksgiving and babies, well they need something super soft. Crocheted from soft yarn and sized for 3-6 month old babies, this sweet hat is so incredibly adorable and ideal to put on the one thing you are the most thankful for.
This looks like an entire outfit, but really it’s just a baby body suit decked out with a colorful argyle corduroy vest and matching bow tie! You can customize this outfit with whichever colored tie you prefer. Available in sizes from newborn to 24 months.
Oh how I wish they made this in matching daddy sizes. Can you imagine how cute that would be? Father and son in Thanksgiving argyle.
Little Lady Turkey
Are turkeys beautiful? I think every parent’s little turkey is ;). This toddler set comes with a stretch to fit tutu dress for toddlers and includes a crocheted turkey hat. The pictures you could take with this would be absolutely priceless!
Vintage dresses look so beautiful on children and during Thanksgiving the look is even more fitting. I love the lace up best and Peter Pan collar on this brown number.
This set is ideal for little crawlers. The leg warmers protect little knees, while the tie appliqued body suit provides easy access for diaper changes (and a whole lot of style!). You can choose from a multitude of Thanksgiving colors, houndstooth, argyles and other ‘fall’ prints to personalize this set according to your preference.
Little Pilgrim Costume
This intricately designed body suit and adorable matching hat need to only be paired with black leggings or tights for a full-on pilgrim look. Available in sizes for newborns all the way to 24 months.
Plaid is perfect for the holidays – not just Christmas! This orange and black version can be made with the bows sewn on the dress, as clip-ons or you can switch them up for hair clips (your choice). The dress also comes with a matching diaper cover.
Pilgrim Hat Applique
This outfit is more suited for itty bitty babies. It includes a white body suit featuring a handmade applique of a pilgrim hat. The brown pants top it off ;).
Is formal more your thing? This tuxedo can be used for all the upcoming holidays and family photos. The faux ‘buttons’ are made form black pom poms and the tux is made from satin ribbon. It’s all been attached using an applique method (tested in the wash). The seller sells these in sizes from 0-3 months all the way to 2T-3T.
No need for a tie! Mr. Turkey makes an appearance on a white body suit (or tee for your toddler) and adds humor, style and a whole lot of fun to your baby’s outfit.
As many parents have varied tastes, I wanted to round-up a few outfit ideas that would appeal to everyone and some of them can be replicated at home using pieces from your baby’s current wardrobe. You’ll find that a few of these picks are also great for Hanukkah and Christmas. Take the tuxedo body suit as an example. Perfect for any holiday!
