fantastic baby and kids gifts - April 2017 - Gift Grapevine

After going all out with a bumper Easter gift guide last month, it’s back to my monthly gift picks. Instead of bunnies, you’ll find clothes, décor, toys, touchy-feely unicorns and a fairy bread umbrella. Yes, a fairy bread umbrella! Here are 10 fantastic baby and kids gifts spotted on the interwebs this past month.

fantastic baby and kids gifts - tap tap garden set

I’ve long been a fan of tap tap sets. They are a big hit with the kids at Mr TT’s kindy class. Miss T and Mr TT even share their own well loved Djeco Tap Tap Vehicles Set which we previously reviewed on the blog. As much as I enjoy tapping together a fire engine or digger, I do love the sweet theme of this Djeco Tap Tap Garden set.

 

fantastic baby and kids gifts - little red riding hood tee

“Who has time to be scared of the Big Bad Wolf?” I love Aussie brand Indie and Sloan’s modern take on Red Riding Hood in this stylish tee. Available in sizes 2, 4 and 6.

 

fantastic baby and kids gifts - fox and beau greeting cards

I’m a sucker for cool greeting cards so was excited when Amy, the creative maker behind Northern Beaches based Fox and Beau, sent me some of her awesome designs. 100% Australian made and printed, her cards are bright, bold and funny. As much as I love the “Congratulations on making a little human!” and “Happy birthday wild one” cards, it’s this “You are super rad” card that’s become my fave.

How stunning and stylish is the Flower Girl dreamer print from Geelong’s Fizzy Pop Designs? There’s many more gorgeous prints for girls and boys to choose from in sizes ranging from A4 to A1. I’m also a fan of the very cool Bear Buddies print!

 

fantastic baby and kids gifts - milly and george designs clock

Dunsborough in WA’s south west may be a fabulous holiday destination, but it’s also home to talented makers like Milly and George Designs – with bespoke height charts, birth keepsakes, DIY height chart kits and beautiful clocks like this pink dipped beauty. Clocks are available in white, pink, grey, mint and pastel blue dipped as well as a natural timber finish and can come with or without numbers.

fantastic baby and kids gifts - tangrams set

Do you remember tangrams as a kid? This traditional game is a fun way to work with shapes, all while helping with spatial skills and maths concepts. Each InaKids Magnetic Educational Activity Set comes with a built-in magnetic story board that unfolds neatly from the lid. Kids age 3 and over can use the colourful, chunky magnetic card pieces to recreate objects on the picture cards or create their own designs from imagination.

Aussie online store Lucas Loves Cars has a gorgeous new selection of soft and thick 100% cotton baby blankets. I particularly like the funky transport and cute bear blankets.

 

fantastic baby and kids gifts - unicorn crayons

I love the handpoured, non-toxic, made from scratch crayons from Sydney maker Funny Little Things Crayons. Tess is onto another winner with her new unicorn crayons. Available in pastel and bright colours, her etsy shop will reopen for orders after Easter.

 

fantastic baby and kids gifts - that's not my unicorn

The 50th book in the bestselling “That’s Not My…” series was recently announced. Babies and toddlers will have to wait until June 19 to get their chubby little fingers over all the fabulous touchy-feely bits of That’s Not My Unicorn (although you can pre-order the book now!).

 

fantastic baby and kids gifts - fairy bread umbrella

The clever people at Make Me Iconic recently gave Instagram followers a sneak peek of their new iconic fairy bread umbrella. Due for release in middle to late May, it’s available to pre-order now. What could be more Aussie than fairy bread and lamingtons?

 

Happy gift hunting!
