It may be an early Christmas for onesies this year as recent research amongst UK consumers shows one in five Brits had already bought their first Christmas 2017 present by the end of May. This early planning is particularly marked amongst the younger population with nearly half of 18-34 year olds buying their first Christmas present before the end of May. Hard to believe, but the same research claims that 9% of 18-24 year olds have already purchased all of their Christmas presents. A spokesman says, “We’re not even half way through the year but it’s clear that shoppers everywhere are already thinking about Christmas”. If consumers are early with their shopping decisions then as a manufacturer we have to plan an especially early Christmas for onesies. In fact our Christmas onesies will soon be ready, hot from the factory. This year we will be adding to our range of footed pyjama styles with both Zooland and Bumble styles having new footed options. And we are bringing back our stripy Nautical style, as pictured, which is an old favourite among you sea dogs and will now be available in both footed or unfooted options. We’ll also probably have our Wizard gowns because they always seem popular for both Halloween and Christmas. According to this recent article in Vogue, robe dressing is the new pyjama dressing. They call the recent trend for pyjama fashion, “the apex of that ever-elusive balance between comfort and style”. If its comfort and style you want then you’ll be looking forward to an early Christmas for onesies too. Talking of pyjama fashion, no less a style icon than Victoria Beckham was in the press this week as she walked through New York wearing a loose fitting blue pyjama inspired set from her own collection. And talking of pyjama fashion we just have to mention that Bananas in Pyjamas are celebrating 25 years of their kids TV show which started in Australia. The Royal Australian Mint marked the anniversary with the production of two commemorative coins. 30,000 limited edition collectible 20 cent and five cent pieces are available in Oz with the yellow banana figures in their blue and white pyjamas. Blue and white like a Nautical funzee eh?
