There’s just no denying that winter is on its way. Mornings are darker and the air is getting chillier. Winter’s arrival also means the arrival of all the winter gear—hats, gloves, mitts, parkas, snow pants, boots. Of course, when I go digging through all the winter gear from last year, all I have left are a dozen single mittens, half a pair of snow pants and three too-small parkas.
And as a parent, there’s little more frustrating than spending money on all-new winter gear only to be left with nothing but single gloves and mitts by the end of the first cold week.
This is why I can really, really appreciate a company like Clippo. Not only does the Canadian-based company sell adorable fastening products, from pacifier clips to hair accessories to pant clips, but they also sell the most amazing mitten clips around.
The straps are the perfect length, which means no mittens dragging on the ground. They come in a variety of colours and patterns (14 to choose from). And they have a centre snap so you can keep them paired together when you aren’t using them—genius!
Now if only the lovely people at Clippo could help me find all of the missing pairs of mitts from last winter…
