Let’s be frank. Finding great small gifts can sometimes be just as time consuming as picking out The Big One. To avoid you grabbing something that'll be tossed aside with the gift wrap, here's our 'Best In Show' for more modestly-priced or compact toys and treats.
1. LET'S CREATE: kitpas Crayons
"You can let them draw on your patio doors with these cool crayons. Don't worry, it cleans off with a simple wipe."
Kitpas crayons are perfect for doodling on paper like your standard crayon, but there's a twist - they can be used on windows as well without any dramas - just wet and wipe to get your panes sparkling again. Oh, and one more thing. They're non-toxic too. A proper little craft box win. For kids who like making and doing, Micador have loads of great craft and art supplies they'll love to dig out of their stocking on Christmas morning.
2. LET'S TALK FEELINGS: bookspeed I Feel Brave
'Follow this brave little rainbow as it faces its fears and discovers what bravery feels like!'
The sweet rainbow character in this brightly illustrated book will help your child manage their emotions and guide them through what it feels like to face their fears, through short easy-to-understand sentences — awesome!
3. LET'S HAVE FUN: Tender Leaf Toys Smart Car Set
'"Three cool cars of the future get their batteries topped up at their own charging station."
It's great to see toys embracing the changing world and this Smart Car Set from Tender Leaf Toys includes three electric vehicles - each with a little hole at the back to plug in at the charging point. As well as being totally up-to-the-minute, it's compatible with most train tracks
4. LET'S STAY COSY: KIDLY Label Teddy Trapper Hat
'This super-cosy hat’s toning shades and contrasting recycled teddy & organic corduroy are giving us all the feels.'
In chunky organic cord and fluffy recycled teddy, we love the contrasting textures and tones, and that it has little heads, ears and necks protected, even in the bitterest weather. With a velcro strap to keep it in place, it makes a great finishing touch to any outfit.
5. LET'S THINK: Djeco Shape Animal Puzzle
"We really like the way this lovely and simple first puzzle for toddlers creates abstract shapes from animals."
This cute wooden puzzle features a two-part triangular fish, round lion and square elephant. Perfect for toddlers and above, they’ll adore exploring the pleasing little blocks and working out how they fit together. It teaches shapes and colours as well as improving their fine motor skills and reasoning. A deceptively simple but very satisfying first puzzle.
