Gift Guide: Kids

Gift Written By Tracy Brown from White Lily Green

We all know how difficult it can be to buy gifts for children. Especially when you are looking for something a bit different. The Designers exhibiting in the We Make London Summer Fair may have just what you've been looking for. Here we have a selection of my favourite gifts and party wear for your little ones.

Cara's Creations
Personalised paintings

I just love Cara's Personalised Paintings. What little girl or boy wouldn't love to see all their favourite things in a painting on their wall? Just send her a list of the recipient’s favourite things and Cara will make it all happen. I love the magical, fairytale feel of her work. Such a refreshing change from the mass produced keepsakes you find in the high street.

Contact Caras Creations for prices and more information


Super Stickers

My children love these super stickers. Bright and bold, and like nothing you've seen before. We have some of the ones they can colour in themselves too, which is such a clever idea (See ChickP's Website) not only are they gorgeous, and fun, but ChickP's products are environmental friendly. Where possible, the materials are sourced from small, local or family run businesses. The paints used are non- toxic, and the packaging is recycled, recyclable and the bags they arrive in are 100% biodegradable.

Pirate costume

Starry Girl costume

Dressing up is an activity that all children enjoy and it’s vital in their development, as it encourages imagination, role play and experimentation. So really, a dressing up outfit is an educational gift!
I adore the Pirate Costume, which is suitable for both boys and girls, and the Starry Girl Costume, which is every little girls dream. It’s beautiful. Isabees costumes are so much nicer than anything I've seen in the shops and very original. Each part of the outfit is available separately, so you can buy as much or as little as you want, or even mix and match!

Little Chook
T-shirts – singing Bluebirds

If you are looking for a cute gift in the clothing department, then look no further than Little Chook. Her T-shirt's are just adorable and completely unique to anything you'll find on the high street. I particularly heart her Singing bluebirds T-shirt. So cute!

Love You longtime Baby

Black & white party dress

Well a Birthday girl needs a party dress, and this is a favourite of mine. The monochrome floral look is very in at the moment and the beautifully vivid pink bow sets it off to perfection. All dresses are individually handmade so at £45 this is a fantastic buy.


Milk Two Bunnies
2 bunny’s gift set

Whenever I'm buying a gift for a new baby, I always like to make sure my gift is original so the new parents don't end up with a dozen of the same thing. Milk Two Bunnies gift sets are a perfect solution. I think this 2 Bunnies Gift set is just gorgeous for any ne
wborn little girl. They come in a beautifully packaged box too! This particular gift set is £40. Check out their website for more combinations which are available on request. If looking for a boy’s gift, this scrummy set is just perfect.

Organic gift set

If you are looking for a more traditional hat and booties set, Nyoki have beautifully made sets with a modern twist. They are made using 100% organic cotton yarn, which is lovely and soft for a delicate baby’s skin. This gorgeous set for little boys features a cute little car – So adorable! Again, your gift wrapping worries are solved as Nyoki present their gist sets in beautiful recycled gift boxes with tissue paper and matching ribbon. Perfect at £56.99.

Age T-shirts

Age T-shirts are such a great idea to mark a little ones Birthday. Whether for a gift or as party wear, they become an irreplaceable keepsake after the big day. This Number and bug T-Shirt is incredible cute & funky! More and more Mums seek original clothing for their well dressed kiddies nowadays, so sidneysidney's T-shirts are a must buy! Check out sidneysidneys Etsy shop for more ages and designs.
A bargain buy at £16

Toby Boo
Soldier Doll

No Nursery should be without some childhood n
ostalgia and Tobyboo's fantastic one off pieces would make a great addition to any childs room. I particularly love this soldier doll. We all remember the vintage toy soldiers from back in the day and this little guy brings back those enchanting memories and with it, introduces that same magic for our own children.
It’s not suitable to play with due to small parts, but it is a fantastic decoration to add those personal finishing touches. He would look fabulous on a mantel or sitting in an easy chair.
Soldier doll is £40.
