The littlies in the family are such fun to buy for! There is such a wealth of options available. But, finding something extra special, which will be practical as well as fun, can be a little more problematic. Particularly when you are looking for a gift that will last as well.
Here are some of our favourite Christmas Gift Ideas for Babies & Toddlers. Most of the items come from smaller independent brands whose thoughtful care in creation is clearly evident, and attention to detail is second to none!
Of course, don’t forget the opportunity to embrace baby’s first Christmas. Whether it’s through the purchase of a special ornament for the tree, a keepsake stocking or refillable advent calendar, there are so many gorgeous ways to welcome a new family member to the start of a lifetime of Christmas festivities.
