I’ve been really looking forward to pulling my mega gift guide together for you lovely readers this year, it’s a jam packed mega edition this time, with something for parents and little people alike!
First up I wanted to share some books that I’ve enjoyed this year, and you might like to gift one to a friend or fellow parent too!
These are a selection of books we’ve reviewed on the blog over the past year, all would make brilliant gifts for little ones, but Little Robin’s Christmas from Egmont by Jan Fearnley remains a firm fave; pop back soon as Egmont have given us a surprise to give away as part of our 12 Days of Christmas bonanza with Mumsdays and You Baby Me Mummy
Toys for indoors…
We’re sticking to educational and fun this year as Joss has more than enough toys to keep her going but needs a few extras to help with creative play which is a big interest of hers at the moment! This bus is a firm favourite with Joss and I thoroughly recommend wooden toys for eco friendliness and sustainability too, you can read our review of Traidcraft‘s Christmas toys here and find out more about its eco and fair trade credentials
This year I’m keeping J’s crafty habits going with a huge bundle of materials for her craft box, great for rainy days and for when the excitement of Christmas gets a bit much and she needs some quiet time!
I’ve also opted for dressing up things to get her creative play going, I love this flamingo outfit from Wilko, thrifty and fun!
And outdoors too!
We always try to get something outdoorsy for Joss as she loves walking and we’re soon to review these great Skip Hop zoolet backpacks which would make a great gift for a toddler that likes to carry their own bits and bobs on days out! I’ve also stocked up on sidewalk chalk as she loves playing in our yard and giant bubble mix makes a great stocking filler too!
Something for Mamas
I’ve gone with a luxe theme this year, I’m in need of a treat so this little lot is my personal wishlist!
Neom Organics candles, gloves from Joules, cashmere bed socks, these are White Company but good old John Lewis do some beauts too, Orly Keily mugs to add to my collection and finally some special crafty stocking fillers from Fabric Rehab
And Papa’s too
I’m loving Green People products at the moment, so their Organic Homme range would be a great buy for Dad, also thinking organic and homegrown these Seed Pantry gift sets are great for budding growers, Howies are always great for organic clothing and you can also warm his heart with fair trade Grumpy Mule coffee which we love in this house!
Something for everyone
And finally, some extras for one and all to enjoy, Montezuma‘s Organic chocolate, Greenfibres hammam towels that are all the rage and anyone could make use of them, the same for Neal’s Yard Unwind collection and some yummy cheeses from the brilliantly named Pong Cheese!
