Children are the most fun to buy for. There are so many cute handmade items out there, for this gift guide I have selected some of the cutest, most beautifully hand made pieces I have ever seen! I can't wait for the Ma Bicyclette team to start reproducing so I have a reason to buy something from each and every one of the shops featured here! Have a gander and let me know what your favorite items are.
Brighton based company 'The Big Forest' are an absolute gem of a find! In a sunny forest clearing stands a hut, The Big Forest Hut. Benjamin, maker in chief, and Michael, Head of Forestry Commissions, spend their day designing wondrous handmade goods to delight and thrill you.
I absolutely love these tipis and fabric crowns from Boo Bear Bean. Their products keep things simple and inspire children to use their imagination - which is what being a child is all about isn't it? The tipis also come with a free surprise tipi accessory, if that's not exciting then I don't know what is!
Ohhh my days, how incredibly adorable are these outfits from Wild Things? All designed and made from a studio in the heart of the Lancashire hills. They are simple and fun, and are sure to appeal to children and adults alike! If only they made these in adult sizes...
These wonderfully detailed plush dolls are from Owls & Co. They are so thoughtfully designed, many of the items of clothing can be removed and the pirates hat and eye patch will even fit your little one as the dolls are 19 inches tall! Not suitable for children under 3, but slightly older children will have hours of fun with these guys!
Button Owl Boutique sell the cutest hand sewn felt room decorations including fairy lights and cushions. Unique soft furnishings made with great care and attention to detail. The cushions can be personalised too which makes a lovely gift.
These crocheted hats and shorts from Cheeky Chumy would make a perfect gift for a new born. All items are made from the finest, super soft, British made aran yarn. So sweet, and really affordable. I love these. You can also get 10% off at the moment with the discount code CHEEKY7.
If you're celebrating Christmas with young ones this year, I hope you have a magical time! And don't worry too much about what to get them, we all know they will spend just as much time playing with the wrapping paper and cardboard boxes as they do the actual gifts!
Merry Christmas, and I will see you in the new year!
