5 Must Haves For Winters

Winter is love and I enjoy it to my fullest every year. It’s the time of year when my energy is at the maximum because I don’t enjoy much in summers due to the scorching sun shining all over my head. I do skiing, skating, and enjoy some other outdoor play, but still, there are some things I always have to prepare before winters start. Here’s what you need to make your winters worthwhile.

1. Ski

Like I said, I love skiing so I need ski shoes and boats. Go to a local sports store where commercial playground equipment is available and there you will easily find ski items, too. I usually shop in September as it is the time when great variety is available and store staff treats you well, too, because they have a plenty of time.

2. Skates

Just like skiing, I love skating and I need skates every winter, both for myself and my kids. I have seen some used pairs available at multiple sports shops and I was surprised to see their condition. They were good enough for the use of both young and adults, so make sure you get some of these to make the most of coming winters.

3. Beauty Products

In winters, skin gets very dry and sometimes, even itchy due to the central heat. I always prefer keeping coconut oil at my home in winters and I moisturise my kids with it. However, I also buy some winter creams and lotions to make sure my children’s skin does not get affected. Some of the brands I have tried including Nature’s Baby Organics, Earth Mama Angel Baby, and California Baby have given fruitful results.

4. Lip Balm

Just like skin, lips get dry a lot during winters. Therefore, I always keep a lip balm in my bag and keep one in each of my kid’s pocket. This way, I reduce the chances of forgetting it before getting out. In case you can’t find a decent chapstick or lip balm, try moisturizing lips with coconut oil. It has done wonders for me, to be honest. If it doesn’t suit you, you can also try simple butter and Aquaphor as a lip balm. However, try to use them in a little amount so that it won’t irritate you.

5. Snow Gear

When you get the first unexpected snow, you need readily available things like snowshoes, gloves, pants, hats, and coats. Kids get so excited when it’s the first snow of the year and all they want is to go outside and make a snowman and take pictures. Therefore, your snow gear must be prepared beforehand so that you won’t miss that lovely time of the year.

Some schools even ask for a snow kit, and if you don’t get your kid one, it will end up him being indoors while his peers are out in the snow jiggling and giggling around. I am sure you would hate it so much, so avoid doing it. You can save a good amount if you shop in March for snow gear as there isn’t a demand for these things during a hot weather.

In a Nutshell

Winters are almost here, and you should now prepare yourself to make the most of the lovely weather. All you need is some advanced planning and a little effort to enjoy winters at its fullest. However, don’t forget to take measures for health protection as it’s the time for an infectious outburst. Aren’t the given tips simple enough to make your winters momentous?
