My kids love fairies. They regularly play dress-ups in fairy dresses. Miss TT likes to accessorise with a wand and tiara, Mr TT with a wand and Bob the Builder work hat. Everything stops when Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom is on TV and they are always looking out for any sign of fairies near the ‘lil Fairy Door in their bedroom.
I’m sure the fascination with fairies will continue, especially when the tooth fairy starts to visit in a couple of years time.
Here are 16 affordable gift ideas under $40 for lovers of fairies. All items are gifts that I have given, would love to give or are favourites with Miss TT and Mr TT.
‘lil Fairy Doors are simply beautiful. Attach them low on a wall or high on a bookshelf and the fairies will know how to come in and out. Miss TT and Mr TT have one in their bedroom and the fairies only visit when they are asleep at night. If they are good the fairies sometimes leave notes, fairy dust or small gifts. It’s beautiful to watch their excitement and Miss TT has been known to sit by the door and talk to her fairies.
Miss TT loves her rainbow ribbon and her friends have loved them when given as a gift. This large version is 3.5 metres long.
These dancing ribbon wands by WA company “Games to Go by Mollydag Made” are perfect for younger ones as the ribbons aren’t too long so kids can’t trip over them. To top it off, a jingle bell adds a bit of extra sparkle. Colour varieties include “Rainbow” and “Spring Fling”.
It’s refreshing to see something a little different from your everyday standard fairy dress (and other colour options that aren’t just pink!). I love this Cotton On Karli Wing Tank in Midnight Magic/Starry Night. Available in sizes 1 – 8 in a number of colours and designs. A matching Trixibelle Tuelle Skirt is also available. Great for dress ups, the skirt is available in sizes 1-2, 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8.
One of my favourite titles in the “That’s Not My…” range of books – That’s Not My Fairy is a great gift for very young kids.
My 7 year old niece loves the Pearlie series of books. The first in the series, Pearlie In The Park is a funny urban fairytale, perfect for new and emerging readers.
Sticker books are great, inexpensive gifts and Usborne titles always feature such beautiful illustrations. 1000 Fairy Stickers features, you guessed it, 1000 fairy themed stickers along with a number of colourful pictures that kids can stick their stickers on if they wish.
This Melissa and Doug fairy 48 piece wooden jigsaw is a great gift for a 4 year old (Miss TT loves hers).
Miss TT loves making birthday cards and other artworks with her collection of stamps. The Melissa and Doug fairy garden stamp kit (4+) & Tiger Tribe first stamp set (3+) would make great crafty gifts.
Melissa & Doug’s magnetic dress up sets are a favourite activity at Miss TT’s kindergarten. The magnetic wooden dress up figure comes with a wooden stand and 54 magnetic clothing and accessory pieces.
Seedling from New Zealand make fantastic craft and activity kits. This beautiful My Magical Fairy Wand kit contains bells, ribbons, wand, tulle and instructions. Make it, and then play with it in your own fairyland!
This Smiggle fairy stencil book comes with 1 sticker sheet, 5 stencil sheets and 50 page scenes. Team it up with some Smiggle gel ink pens and you have a great gift.
Personalised notepads and sketchpads have always been a popular gift with my nieces. In addition to the child’s name on the front cover, the pages are personalised throughout the book. Lots of designs are available in notepads (A5 size) and sketchpads (A4 and A3 sizes).
For the Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom fan, these new summer pyjamas (in sizes 2 through to 6) are exclusive to the ABC Shop. Pyjamas always make a practical gift for kids which parents will appreciate!
