Christmas is all about family – and there’s nothing quite like handmade gifts for the youngest family members. A handmade present has a heart, soul and originality that mass produced toys just can’t compete with. So of course our Christmas Gift Guide wouldn’t be complete without a whole section devoted to gifts for kids and babies. Check out some of the cute and colourful creations we’ve gathered together.
galleryBoard games are always a hit in the holidays and we love the idea of this nature-themed board game in a bag from Mararoa, that packs up easily for summer evenings at the bach. While we’re on the nature theme, Tinch’s whimsical magnetic wallscapes are a great interactive artwork to engage young minds.
Willoughby the Whale from Oh!me is a good sort of chap, who will get along swimmingly with any youngster. And we’re not out of ideas yet – here’s another selection of lovely treasures that are sure to fire any child’s imagination.
galleryAnd who couldn’t be taken with this beautiful set of soft and lightweight bowling pins and ball from Izzy Bee Baby, sure to delight the little ones.
Our talented craftspeople and makers have thought of every sort of gift, from tiny stocking-fillers to elaborate settings for imaginative play. Rather like this amazing tree stump fairy house from Wood Botherer. And who doesn’t love a good dolls’ house – even if we’re not-so-little kids anymore?
