Buying for kids is difficult; you never want to be the one that just bought them another pack of crayons and a colouring book they got too old for three years ago. It’s just not a good look. Character, colour and practicality are the buzzwords when it comes to getting kids something they’ll actually use and cherish. Which is why we’ve chosen the cream of the Christmas gift crop to help you effectively whiz through your shopping list.
And it doesn’t have to cost a lot. We’re talking beanies, slippers and nightwear to fill the stockings with an instant dose of something they’ll love. These goodies are sure to stand out in that mountain of gifts the littluns will be hidden under somewhere between Christmas dinner finishing and Toy Story starting. Nail the shopping now, and there’ll be plenty of time for festivities by the fire with friends leading up to the big day.
Christmas Gifts for Kids:
Practical and fun; the trusty beanie gets it right every time. Whether they’re playing in the snow or just need to wrap up on a cold winter’s day, there’s guaranteed return on investment with a beanie. Treat her with animal print or a novelty penguin beanie and keep the boy looking stylish with tonal retro print or a classic coloured pom pom beanie.

They’d run round the house barefoot if they could, but they’ll be complaining of cold tootsies in no time. Keep the kids cosy through the festive season and beyond with a funky pair of slippers. Stripes, spots, dinosaurs and super soft fleecy fabrics will keep their feet snug and their faces smiling all the way to summer.

Bring the fun factor to bed time with bright colours and novelty prints and keep them toasty from bedtime stories all the way through to breakfast. Whether he wants to wear dragons and look a bit spooky, or she’s into cute rabbits and funky penguins, bed time just got switched up a notch. They’ll be snug as a bug in these.
