Boxing Day sales – Shop for cheap baby clothes and accessories

Save big on baby clothes and accessories during this year’s Boxing Day sales.

Boxing Day is one of the biggest shopping events on the calendar… and it’s getting ever more popular each year. In 2016, Australia blew the $2 billion sales mark for the first time. According to the Australian Retailers Association (ARA), this was an increase of $72 million from the previous year’s sales.

Online sales are no different. While the ARA says that going in-store for Boxing Day sales will never really disappear, online shopping is becoming the norm, with Myer experiencing its largest online sale ever on Boxing Day 2016. There’s little doubt it will be even larger this year.

Australians spent around $16.8 billion last year during the post-Christmas sales from 26 December to mid-January. Where will you be the same time this year? That’s right, you’ll be grabbing a bargain.

During Boxing Day sales, clothing is one of the most popular items to get the price cut, with baby clothes being no exception. If you’re looking for new wears for your little one on the cheap, the Boxing Day sales could be where it’s at.

Who had discounts on Boxing Day 2016?

When it comes to baby clothes and toys, these retailers took Boxing Day sales to heart last year.

  • Bonds: 40% off everything. When Bonds offered a 40% off discount during Black Friday this year, the Internet almost broke. Start your wishlist now in anticipation of their Boxing Day sales.
  • Cotton On: Up to 50% off. Cotton On’s Cotton On Kids department is massive. They sell anything and everything “kidswear” at a low-price mark. Spend $55 or more and receive free shipping with them. If the pre-Christmas sales (30% off full priced items) are anything to go by, Boxing Day is going to be a steal.
  • Roxy: 10% off everything. Surf’s up and Roxy might be doing Aussie’s a favour in terms of Boxing Day deals. Last year it slashed its prices by 10% off. Fingers crossed it’ll do the same this year.
  • Zazzle: Up to 60% off. When searching for a personalised or quirky gift, Zazzle knows its stuff. The store constantly has codes and discounts so keep an eye out for their Boxing Day deals.
  • David Jones: Up to 60% off storewide. Australia’s beloved department store has been offering massive discounts throughout the year (think 30% off select clothing and homewares during Black Friday). Last year it was offering up to 60% off stock.
  • Crocs: Up to 60% off with prices starting from $19.99. Crocs fan? Don’t pay full price this year, wait until Boxing Day and see what prices will be slashed for your little one.
  • Priceline: Up to 70% off. Babies accessories and health products were subject to up to 70% off during last year’s Boxing Day sales. We can’t wait to see how cheap they’ll be at this year’s sale.
  • Light in the Box: $11 off $100 as well as up to 80% off items. If you haven’t discovered Light in the Box yet, you really need to. It’s like AliExpress and is a market that sells practically everything. Get on it!

While these are last year’s sales, you can expect that a good number of these retailers will be returning to join in the Boxing Day sales in 2017 and to be offering similar discounts. For children’s clothes, Bonds, Cotton On, David Jones and Target are your go-to stores. Not only do they offer affordable prices every day but they’ll be offering even more bargains on the 26th. For toys, you can’t look past DealsDirect, oo.com.au and Target while for fun experiences, there’s LivingSocial and OurDeal. Looking for a way to keep the kids busy during the January holidays? They’ll take care of that.


Who else might be joining the Boxing Day sales in 2017?

On top of these retailers (who are all tipped to offer similar sales this Boxing Day), we’re predicting that some of the other major players will also be slashing their prices. Think department stores and hot online properties like Lowes, Myer and Big W, and more child-friendly retailers like ABC Shop, Baby Bunting and Huxbaby.

Is it better to buy during the Boxing Day sales or wait?

That comes down to what you are buying and how much you’re willing to pay for it. With so many sale events happening over the course of a year (EOFY sales, Christmas sales, Click Frenzy and Black Friday), bagging a sale isn’t your problem, it’s how much you’re willing to spend.

Take a look at what’s available during Boxing Day and see if it really is too good to pass up. Some retailers offer up to 80% off. If you can get what you want at that much of a discount, why wouldn’t you snap it up? If the bargain isn’t fantastic or the item you want isn’t the bees knees, then don’t let FOMO take over.
