Terrific Toddler Gift Guide

Every Friday in the run up to Christmas I am choosing my top picks, in a series of gift guides. I hope these guides will inspire you in your holiday shopping. There are lots of present ideas, new brands and finds, as well as some of my favourite online shops. Each Friday I will update the guide with a new selection. If you are time short, or just too tired to look for gifts, this is the list for you. 

This year I am trying to buy less and choose gifts which I think will be enjoyed time and time again. I am also consciously avoiding plastic (as much as possible) to be a little more gentle to our planet.

There might be less gifts, but they’ll be good ones.

xx Happy holidays everyone xx

 

Terrific Toddlers & kids

Fun inspiration and beautiful pieces for your little monkey(s). I always try and give less but by better quality and things which will last. This year I am also trying to be more sustainable with less plastic gifts too. Here are my top picks ❤️

Honey & Toast Leather Satchel

I absolutely love this beautiful satchel which is made to last. Perfect for mini adventures and carrying around precious treasure.

Scandiborn’s wicker baskets

This is another one of my favourite online destinations for children, I have bought some amazing presents on there. I love a brand they stock called Olli Ella, they make gorgeous wicker baskets for children. This one on wheels and the little picnic style box, are two of my daughters favourites. They are made to last and have been packed up for many adventures in the garden and to our local park.

sparkle child

This online store is for any little magpies. It is a new discovery for me and I think there beautiful wands, purses and accessories are stunning. I am always trying to avoid synthetic dress up costumes, I don’t like that they are flammable. So for me this is dressing up in a safe way, without comprising on the sparkle. I have bought a wand and purse for my little girl’s stocking this year.

Little Green Home’s Stainless Steel Lunchbox

I’m cutting back on plastic as much as I can, making sensible swaps in our home for products which are more sustainable and kinder to our planet. Top of our list is this adorable stacking lunchbox, stocked by Little Green Home. They are a lovely website, which I discovered on Instagram. They have a great selection of sustainable home products: check them out for any of you looking to live more gently in the new year.

fifi and friends hair kit

Fifi and Friends is one of my favourite beauty brands for little ones: they make beautiful products. This year they have bundled their lovely range into fantastic kits: like this lovely hair kit. This makes a great present, to keep your little ones smart for any big family occasions.

Papier’s children’s books

Papier is a beautiful printer, with stunning designs. They featured in last week’s gift guide too, this week I wanted to highlight their beautiful bespoke children’s books. A fun and thoughtful present and one that can be enjoyed time and time again.

mamas and papas personalised dressing gowns

During the holidays as children we were always given new pyjamas, slippers and a dressing gown. I try and carry on the same tradition with my children. Mamas and Papas soft blue dressing gown is warm and super soft, perfect as the night’s draw in.

this modern life wooden kitchen

I have envy over this chic little kitchen set! I wish I could cook in it myself. This Modern Life has an amazing edit for children, so follow the link to their website. I am always looking to engage my children with what their eating and a play kitchen is a fabulous gift that will provide hours of entertainment. You will be able to discuss food and what they are eating too.
