CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE: For Children 2018

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE: For Children 2018
*Advertorial Content 
Buying Christmas presents for children can be challenging because there are quite simply so many different options. I've popped together a range of ideas in this gift guide for children's 'main present' or those bigger gifts that appear on the letter to Father Christmas. A big part of the magic at Christmas time is seeing those excited faces of children when they open their presents, isn't it? I hope that these gifts will get exactly that reaction, so on with the guide...
  

Flower Print Mum/Child/Sibling Matching Sweatshirts Set (£39.50) from Little Dandies - Little Dandies have a vibrant range of hand-drawn animals that are skilfully handprinted here in the United Kingdom. Baby grows, t-shirts, sweatshirts, cushions, prints and pyjamas make up their fun product range, as well as matching sets for parents and/or siblings. You can't beat a bit of twinning, can you? Although this set is originally for a Mum and Child, Little Dandies are incredibly helpful and are more than happy to create bespoke orders using their range of handprinted designs. The flower print design includes a range of colourful flowers and an elegant swan in the centre. The sweatshirts are so soft and cosy on the inside, making them ideal during the winter months.
Amelia Coat in Pink (£29.95) from Lighthouse Clothing - A really cosy waterproof coat is just what is needed in autumn/winter and this pink Amelia Coat will brighten any rainy day. It is lightweight yet equipped with many practical features to keep little ones warm, dry and protected from the elements. The soft fleece lining with insulated padding, fleece lined hood and windproof features all work together for that extra level of warmth. It's the perfect gift for any child who loves exploring the outdoors whatever the weather and is available in sizes from 1-2 years all the way to 7-8 years. 
Hedgehog Knitted Hot Water Bottle (£28) from Sophie Allport - When the cold nights make getting warm difficult fill a Sophie Allport Hot Water Bottle and put it in your child's bed before bedtime. Is there a better treat on a cold evening than getting into a warm, cosy bed? You could also use it while snuggling up to watch a film or when going on a cold car journey. Sophie Allport does a range of Hot Water Bottles, including Sheep, Elephants, Flamingos and Highland Stag. This hedgehog design also matches a range of other products, such as a cushion and blanket, if you like things to be matching.

Personalised Wooden Tool Kit Toy (£35.95) from Twenty-Seven - Wooden toys are such a classic way for children to embrace their imagination and have a break from the technology that surrounds them nowadays. Twenty-Seven have a beautiful range of wooden toys for a range of ages, many of which can be personalised for that extra special touch. This Personalised Wooden Tool Kit comes in a sturdy carry case and when opened you'll find it filled with a range of wooden tools carefully stored away. This set includes a hammer, pliers, ruler, spanner, wrench and saw, which is all your little one will need to get fixing everything around your house. 

Sylvanian Families - Town Series - Delicious Restaurant (£44.99) from Smyths - The Sylvanians are such a nostalgic childhood toy for many and their exciting new Town Series is filled with classic buildings, characters and accessories. The grand Delicious Restaurant has two floors, a patio outdoor area and all the accessories your child needs to bring the restaurant to life through their imagination. From saucepans, to chef whites, a menu stand and plates of food, any Sylvanian visiting the Delicious Restaurant is certain to have full tummies when they leave. The attention to detail throughout the Delicious Restaurant is beautiful and really helps to make it feel 'real' for children. Most of the buildings in the Town Series are connectable, so that you can create a completely unique town that can easily be changed as and when your child wants to. 


Grey Patent Angelica Grosgrain Shoes (£75) and Ribbed Knee High Socks in Antique Fushia (from £7.95) from Papouelli - These are the shoes that Princess Charlotte wore at Pippa Middleton's wedding, which makes them pretty special for your little princess. She wore them in blush pink, but they are also available in this grey patent seen here), red patent and silver grey patent. The classic and timeless designs of the Papouelli shoes makes them the perfect occasion shoe that can also be worn day-to-day. The popper strap on the Angelica Grosgrain enables children to put them on and take them off by themselves. The attention to detail is exquisite with them arriving in a shoe box with dust bag, the delicate grosgrain trim and firm sturdy sole. Papouelli also stock a wide range of baby and child ribbed knee high socks and tights in every colour you could imagine. There are over 30 colours to choose from, ranging from warm autumn colours to neutrals and bright colours. They are incredible soft, warm and comfortable, making them a stylish addition to any autumn/winter outfit. 
Maxi Micro Foldable Scooter in Berry Red (£144.95) from Micro - Taking scooters to a new level of fun and convenience Micro have brought out the Foldable Scooter. A simple click will enable you to fold down the handlebar making it compact, easy to carry and take away with you. Storing scooters is now easier and if you are often left carrying the scooter then you'll be pleased to know that this Maxi Micro Foldable Scooter fits comfortably underneath a pushchair. This scooter is design for 5-12 years with its large fibreglass footplate with increased grip, adjustable handlebar and robust footbrake. The weight-transfer steering encourages balance and co-ordination skills in children and something that they often pick up impressively quickly. The Maxi Micro Foldable is available in Berry Red (shown here), Neon Pink,  Petrol Turquoise and Grey. The three wheels are non-marking and puncture-free, which is yet another feature that shows how this scooter is built to last. An investment for years and years, which is rare when it comes to children's gifts. Micro scooters are always the highest quality, built with Swiss design and engineering, as well as with timeless style.
Red Arrows Children's Flying Suit (£25) from Royal Air Force Association Shop - This is the gift for all the future pilots and aeroplane loves out there; a child's version of the flying suit Red Arrow pilots wear. It has a Velcro adjustable waist, cuffs and legs, Red Arrows logo, pen holder on the sleeve, knee pocket and RAF rank slides on the epaulettes. The RAF Association is a membership organisation and registered charity that provides welfare support to RAF families. The Association recognises that the RAF personnel and their immediate families dedicate their lives to their country and they believe that that sacrifice shouldn't result in poverty, loneliness or suffering. Whether it's an injured airman or woman fighting to get back on to their feet, a young child missing their parent or a World War II veteran needing a shoulder to lean on, they are there to help all generations of RAF personnel and their families. They offer practical, emotional and financial support in times of need. Their membership of more than 72,000 includes serving RAF personnel, veterans and members of the public who want to show their support for the work they do. Across the UK in 2017 the Association carried out more than 115,000 welfare contacts, calls and visits, so by choosing a Christmas Gift from their museum shop you are also choosing to help support the RAF personnel and their families. 

Personalised Ruffle Tiered Tutu Skirt (£28 each) from Mini Bloom at Bloom Boutique - Mini Bloom do the most beautiful range of children's jewellery, accessories and gifts, including these Personalised Ruffle Tutu Skirts. They are perfect for little ballerinas and come with 20mm charm engraved with your child's name. You can choose from either Rose Gold or Silver plated charms and the script style engraved writing is such a delicate addition. The tutu skirts would be ideal for dressing up boxes or the starring piece in a festive outfit. They're available in sizes XS (2-3 years), S (4-5 years), M (6-8 years), L (9-11 years) and XL (12-14 years), all of which have adjustable elasticated bands to make them fit for even longer.  
I have also put together a Gift Guide for Babies, Gift Guide for Toddlers, Gift Guide for Parents and Gift Guide for Under £10, if you're in need of more inspiration.
