One mom knits a Christmas sweater every day at her home, dressing her children in a different Christmas outfit throughout December.

Katy Warburton, 36, a mum of two, has bought more than 240 Christmas outfits for her little ones over the past seven years, making the countdown to the big day truly unforgettable every year.

Warburton, from Wolverhampton in the West Midlands, started an annual tradition in 2016 to celebrate her six-year-old son James’ first Christmas, which is also enjoyed by his three-year-old sister Charlotte.

Warburton is also urging them to show off their stuff daily on the festive “runway” to show off their impressive collection of seasonal sweaters. The family also owns dozens of matching sets of holiday pyjamas.

But while Warburton certainly goes all out, he tries to do it in the most imaginative way.

“I usually never pay more than £1 for a sweater, Christmas shirt or dress,” she says.

“I am shocked at the price of Christmas-themed clothes in stores. I love scouring charity shops and car sales during the summer months for near-new bargains.

“Every item I buy comes from a car boot sale or a charity shop. They only wear them for a day, and then I either leave the larger ones for Charlotte to wear for years to come, give them to friends, or sell them.”

The idea was born unconsciously when she was expecting her first child with her husband Nathan Warburton, 32.

“James was due at the end of November, so I spent the summer collecting holiday clothes for his first Christmas,” recalls Warburton.

“I loved finding children’s deals for less than a pound. I took it home, washed it and packed it up ready for his arrival.”

However, she admits: “I forgot how many Christmas-themed newborns I bought.

“I couldn’t help myself, the tiny baby clothes were just too cute.

“The vests that said ‘Mom’s Christmas Pudding’ or ‘Santa’s Helper’ were all cute.”

In the first year, she bought much more than she had planned.

“I realized I got a little carried away when my husband joked that James could wear a different outfit every day in December,” she confesses.

Last year, Warburton worried that her favorite tradition would come to an end when James went to school. But always resourceful, she bought more matching pajama sets so she could continue in the evenings, still being careful how much she spent.

“Kids love it and I get so excited when I pack a 50p sparkly jumper or a £1 red velvet dress still with tags,” she says.

“I show my husband when I discount something, but I wait until December to surprise the kids with what outfits they have to choose from.”

And kids love to get involved in costumes too.

“Every day they choose what they want to wear, especially if we’re going to a Christmas party or preschool, and I love taking pictures and sharing them with my family,” explains Warburton.

“As James gets older, the styles have changed from the adorable ‘mommy’s little snowman’ to Santa sweaters with game controllers or Minecraft characters wearing Santa hats.

“But Charlotte’s dresses are so pretty, I couldn’t pick just one or two. I absolutely love her December wardrobe.”

Warburton has no intention of interrupting its Christmas tradition any time soon.

“At this age, it’s such a magical time of year!” she adds.

“They are both very excited about Christmas and that helps build their excitement.

“I get treasure photos when they decide they’re too old to dress up.”
