CHRISTMAS STOCKING FILLERS FROM THE KID WHO
As you might remember I'm collaborating with the fab independent store The Kid Who to showcase some of their super gifts for kids and now that December is less than 24 hours away, I've started pulling together some ideas for the big day and thought I'd share my Christmas Stocking fillers list. For me being able to put a few small presents at the end of the bed can potentially buy at least 20 minutes of shut eye before we all get into the day's festivities – although *shh* secretly I'm normally the first up due to all the excitement.
Whether buying for children of friends or family, I've found these five super gifts for £15 or under, all channelling great design and style, perfect for little ones. First off is this stunning book In The Forest, at £15 this will delight any child with beautiful illustrations that literally pop off the page. The story shows a lush green vibrant jungle full of animals and what happens once it's destroyed. Children will love searching for the Sloth hidden in the tree tops and the beautiful lesson on taking care of nature and seeing a forest reborn.
Jigsaws are always a big hit in our house, F will spend ages on the floor working on a puzzle and what's more fun than the bright lights of New York City! This fab Mouk Jigsaw Puzzle at £14 will get little minds racing trying to piece together the vibrant picture and pour over all the quirky details in Marc Boutavant's illustration.
Kids Landscape Gym Bag from Ferm Living at £12. Made from 100% this soft drawstring bag is the perfect size to fit a few gifts in doubling up as a great present in itself. F has already sneaked this one out from it's hiding place and has promptly started using it as a teddy bear carrier. I love the Nordic inspired design from Ferm Living and I think it makes the perfect accessory for an adventurous day out with little ones.
Do you have a small space fanatic in your family? I do so this Studio Roof Totem Kanika pop out Space gift couldn't be more perfect for a stocking filler at £5. Made from card, you can pop out a space station, rockets, radar, astronaut and space related illustrations, and slot them together to create small toys for budding astronauts. Once played with just un-slot the pieces and carry in your bag ready for some emergency fun on the go.
Lastly this cute Bunny Night Light at £4 will be a hit with any animal or nature lover. It gives of a small a warm cosy glow with an internal LED light and a nice fuzzy feeling inside due to the cuteness factor, and would look perfect on any kids shelf for those who want a little comfort at night.
Oh and as it's Cyber Monday The Kid Who have a fab range of gifts that are on sale until midnight today so don't miss out! Have you got your stocking fillers ready? What would be under your tree? I love these 5 products for under £15 and think they are a great addition to any Christmas day.
*A huge thanks for The Kid Who to ask me to collaborate with them over the next six months as a Gift & Interior Advisor and sending me these wonderful products in exchange for a review.
