As I mentioned last week, I’m going to be doing my gift guides a little differently this year. By nature a planner, I really enjoy having a good think about what to gift and for me the months of October and November are a fun season of thinking about presents and planning what to give. Add in all the fun that I had at various ‘Christmas in July’ events earlier in the year and I am just full to bursting with inspiration!
Rather than doing gifts guides for him, or gifts guides for her, this year I’m arranging my guides around themes, so the lists will address a certain interest, area or passion. Each post has an accompanying Pinterest board too, so I can keep adding great finds as I come to them! I hope these prove useful and that you might find an item or two that works for you.
As a proud auntie and godmother, selecting presents for the little folk in my life is a real pleasure. Whether it’s adorable outfits, great books or fun toys, there are so many wonderful things for little people to enjoy!
I love the book The Fox and the Star (£6.99, Waterstones) – it’s a very sweet story and the illustrations are beautiful. I have a soft spot too for this gorgeous polar bear romper (£22.50, Boden) which looks lovely and cosy for little folk in the December chill!
Speaking of cosy, these Marcelle monkey booties (£22, The White Company) are just precious. And Asda as ever have some beautiful Christmas clothes for babies and toddlers – this first Christmas sleepsuit (£5, George at Asda) would make such a lovely gift. Toys, of course, will be on many toddler Christmas gift lists – we’ve given this octopus bath toy (£5.99, amazon) and this Duplo train (£8.07, amazon) in previous years and both have received great reviews.
I hope you may have found something here that will suit a baby or a toddler who you know – there are lots of other ideas over on my Pinterest board, too. Happy gifting!
