Gift Grapevine gift guides: Christmas gifts for babies and kids

blog cover

Whether you want to start a new pre-Christmas tradition, celebrate baby’s first Christmas or give something special for the big day, here are some great Christmas gifts for babies and kids.

Lauren Hinkley bracelet           Nordic rocking horse ornament

Handmade in Australia, Lauren Hinkley makes gorgeous (and affordable) jewellery for girls aged 4 – 10. This sparkle Christmas charm bracelet has charms designed to stay on the bracelet that aren’t removable (so safe for three years of age and above).

Handcrafted in Germany, a pair of wooden Nordic rocking horses would make a lovely keepsake and addition to any Christmas tree.

BCG santa sack

Love this DIY Santa Sack from Blank Canvas Gifts. A fantastic pre-Christmas craft activity for the kids.


festive fingernail friends christmas tin  christmas tin fox

So cute! Festive nail stickers “Fingernail Friends – Christmas” (set of 25).

The ‘Me and My Reindeer’ Christmas tin case and Hello Mr Fox tin case would make a lovely addition for under the tree – very handy for use all year (great for storing stamps, ribbons, pencils, etc).


ella bella    stick man   santas secret

Ella Bella Ballerina and The Nutcracker – Budding ballerinas will love this Ella Bella Ballerina adventure – these books are beautifully illustrated.

Stick Man lives in the family tree, with his Sticky Lady Love and their stick children three…another lovely story from the author and illustrator team of The Gruffalo. When Stick Man gets lost, he desperately wants to get home to be with his family for Christmas. And when he helps Santa out of a bind, he finds the perfect way home!

Santa’s Secret – Miss TT discovered this book on a trip to the library when she was 3 and loved it. A delightful Christmas book with a cheeky Australian twist.


-lil-fairy-door-xmas             nesting dolls

I love ‘lil Fairy Doors and now there is a special edition ‘lil Christmas Door – perfect for homes without a chimney! Each door comes with a ‘lil Christmas Wreath, a bottle of “snow” to sprinkle around and a note to Santa to welcome him into your home.

This Christmas nesting doll nativity set with Joseph, Mary, the three Kings and baby Jesus is just too cute.


Christmas super bib             candy cane baby romper

Great for a big Christmas lunch, this Bugsey Bee Christmas Bamboo Super Bib is made from 100% cotton and backed with absorbent double sided bamboo terry toweling. The bibs are antibacterial, hypo-allergenic, sustainable and eco-friendly and hold 3-4 more moisture then cotton. Smaller dribble bibs are also available.

I wish Miss TT was a baby again – I would have definitely bought this for her first Christmas! Handmade 1st Christmas Candy Cane baby romper (available in sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months and size 1).

smiggle advent calendar         reindeer noses

One for all the Smiggle stationary fans – the 2014 Smiggle Advent Calendar features limited edition Smiggle goodies you can’t find instore. A nice change to the usual chocolate advent calendar in the lead up to Christmas.

For a do-it-yourself Christmas gift, these Reindeer Noses make a simple, cute and inexpensive handmade gift.


For some lovely and unique Christmas wrapping ideas have a look at this post from the stylish Tessa at I Love Pretty Things.
