Gifts for kids & teens
First of all, happy December! Can you believe we've finally reached the countdown to Christmas? We certainly can't. But the decs are up, the festive fun things are in full swing, and so is the shopping. So with that being said, let's get stuck into our next gift guide, shall we? This weeks guide is for little ones as well as not-so-little ones. For those who still believe in Santa, and those who might be too cool for school but secretly still adore the magic of Christmas. Let's get stuck in.
It would be criminal not to start with Jellycats here. You might initially think that this brand is for children, but Jellycat is a brand that is increasingly adored by older children and beyond. We get people of all ages coming into our shop to look at the Jellycats, as well as collect them, it's crazy. But the thing is, they're just so charming that it's hard to resist! So whether you're buying for a 8-year-old or an 18-year-old, a Jellycat can be a really special gift.
Stationery can be a really great option for a practical present for all ages. But we find it can be especially handy for those who are at college or university. Most of the time there's lots of notes being taken, projects being planned or generally work being done. So a good quality notebook can be a really lovely gift to receive for an young person. We also have lots of options for children too, such as colouring books or art journals to help their creative juices flow.
If you've got kids who are just starting to get into the world of beauty, or older kids who are already into it, then take a browse through our beauty section to see if there's something you can pamper them with. This year we've got makeup-removing face cloths that are proving to be hugely popular as gifts because they're lovely but also super handy to have. There's also fun things like face mask sets, lip balms, and manicure sets that can be great gifts for a little pamper-time fun.
Another thing that's great for all ages is jewellery, if you find the right stuff. Well we think Coral & Mint definitely do the right stuff. Their earrings, necklaces and bracelets are the perfect balance of pretty but not over the top, sophisticated but still suitable for younger ages who might have only just got their ears pierced for example. They also do the sweetest bracelet bands and hairbands that are ideal for stocking fillers or for popping in cards in the post.
Now then, who doesn't love a game? We certainly do. And Christmas time always seems to be a time for games, so they can make for really great gifts. And we've got something for everyone. There are kids trivia-style games in boxes, festive escape rooms, and even a pub quiz in a tin for older kids. Plenty of fun can be had this festive season.
So whilst that summarises our top 5 present options for kids and older kids, we're sure there's more we've missed out. From kids socks to desk lights and candles for making a uni room feel more cosy, there's plenty of choice if you look around. So we'll leave you to have a little browse of the website, or if you're local, be sure to pop in and have a browse. We're always happy to help with ideas too.
