Why Renting Your Baby’s Halloween Costume Is the Smartest Thing You’ll Do This Season
We’re almost through September and that means Halloween costumes and decorations are already in stores—and in some places, selling out. 😱
Instead of picking through what’s leftover, or running from store to store to find just the right Halloween costume, why not try something new this year—like renting!
After all, Halloween costumes are only worn once which hardly makes them worth the expense and hassle of buying them new. And as a mom and fashion merchandiser, I can tell you that finding Halloween costumes on the cheap isn’t easy, even if you’re open to shopping thrift or consignment.
Here are 3 reasons why renting is the hottest Halloween trend this year:
1. Save money 💰
While it’s fun to dream up all the awesome possibilities for what your baby, or family’s costume can be—– shopping for a little one, not to mention a family, can get expensive! According to Yahoo Finance, “Americans are expected to spend a hefty $3.3 billion on costumes this year; with the average person spending $33.59.” When you rent your Halloween costume from Rent-a-Romper, you can expect to save 50-70% compared to retail on each Halloween costume you wear this year!
2. Offload the mental load 🧠
While Halloween costumes can be a lot of fun to put together and take pictures of, they also take a lot of thought and planning. Even if you find a costume you like off the shelf, you often need to find accessories to pair with it, like matching leggings for babies in cooler climates, or long sleeved bodysuits or t-shirts to wear underneath itchy fabric. With Rent-a-Romper, you can get everything you need all in one place, and we’ll even do all the shopping and coordinating for you.
3. Effortlessly sustainable 🌱
Like all of our clothing rental options, Halloween costume rentals help keep clothing in circulation longer which means less clothing winds up in the trash. Our shipping containers are reusable too, so you can feel good knowing you’re making a more sustainable choice this year without having to add extra work to your already full plate.
Like many of our customers say, “renting costumes makes so much sense!” No matter what you need or what you’re trying to accomplish this Halloween season, we’re here to help you. And if you need help beyond the costume, check out our top tips on how to get your entire Halloween to-do list handled.
