From new season headwear to adorable nursery décor, activity kits, an inspiring book and new pool toys that just scream SUMMER, here are 11 of my favourite baby and kids gift ideas spotted on the interwebs this past month.
This Ted the bear blanket from Melbourne’s Cream Empire is adorable. Made of 100% baby Alpaca wool, it’s ethically made and contains no nasty dyes. Available to pre-order and due to arrive this month, it’s impossible not to smile at that cute little face!
Ooooh – sparkly! I love the new glitter wall hooks by Gold Coast based The Hook Co. spotted at Love By Five. A cute way to add some sparkle to a kid’s room.
This Alphabet Soup Ride it till the wheels come off cap is perfect for any little skater.
Perth brand Huckleberry has released this sweet Make Your Own Feather Crown Kit. Available in 4 different colours, each kit makes 1 gorgeous feather crown and comes with step by step instructions and glitter paint. A fun gift for crafty kids over 3 who love to dress up.
This is one stylish nappy wallet! Handmade by Queensland maker Vicki Elle, this would make a unique and practical gift for any new mum. The metallic gold geometric print is simply stunning.
Girls need more science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) role models and this book, Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World, delivers 50 of them.
“Women in Science highlights notable women’s contributions to various scientific fields and inspires readers both young and old. A fascinating collection full of striking, singular art, the book features 50 profiles and illustrated portraits of women in STEM from the ancient to the modern world, and also contains infographics about interesting and relevant topics such as lab equipment and rates of women currently working in STEM fields.”
A fantastic book for aspiring scientists aged 8 to 12.
Everything can be turned into a game if you have to beat the clock! This new Beat the Clock Stopwatch Set from Tiger Tribe is packed full of fun and constructive activities to get kids out and about. Great for solo play or with friends, the fun time-based activities will be sure to keep kids busy.
I’ve been a fan of Toshi hats ever since I bought Miss T her first hat as a bub. Mr TT is currently rocking his own Toshi hat at pre-kindy. Their new Spring Summer 2016/17 collection is inspired by the Secret Garden and is just beautiful. I love this reversible Beach Hat in Tropicana Jasmine. Perfect for Summer in Australia.
Lark Store has recently released their pool floatie collection with over 30 new designs. My favourites include the Rainbow Luxe lie-on float, Inflatable Cactoss and Watermelon Pool Ring – all of these designs just scream SUMMER!
Now, where’s the sunshine?
Happy gift hunting!
