Gift Guide for Kids - Christmas 2017 - London Local Etsy Market

We are bringing you a series of Christmas gift guides to celebrate the Etsy Made Local Christmas Market 2017 on 2nd December 2017 in Tooting, London.  All of the products featured in this gift guide series are made by the designer-makers that will be exhibiting and selling at our market. It's going to be an amazing market, full of unique items made by expert local crafts-people and designers, so you won't want to miss out!


This week, we're bringing you a gift guide for kids. The options for kids' gifts is endless, but if you want something a little bit more unique, look no further. We've got some brilliant ideas to make Christmas feel that little bit extra special for the kids this year.

Christmas Gift Guide for Kids

1. Tiny Gingerbread Person Necklace by Jazzy Menagerie

This necklace is  ridiculously charming (excuse the pun, we couldn't resist) and very festive too. The charm is made from wood, then hand painted and hand varnished, with added touches of rhinestone buttons and a little bowtie.

2. Dinosaur Superhero wrapping paper by Charlotte Filshie

Technically not a gift, but something to wrap your gifts in. What kid doesn't love imagining themselves as a superhero with superhuman powers? And who isn't fascinated by dinosaurs? This paper will really jolly up your presents and will be the type of wrap kids actually want to open carefully to save, rather than rip apart (maybe... no guarantees, we haven't met your kids!)

3. Reflective mittens for toddlers by Pluck'd Designs

These mittens are not just adorable, but have a very unusual practical safety element to them too. Designer-maker, Saffie from Pluck'd Designs, has come up with an ingenious type of yarn that has little bits of reflective tape throughout, making the mitten wearer more visible in these darker winter days. So clever!

4. Monster coin wallet by Mika Bon Bon

This cotton coin purse would make a wonderful gift for the kid who has everything. We bet they don't have a monster coin wallet to gobble up their pocket money!

5. Initial Embroidered Wall hanging by Cafinated Crafter

This lovely piece of room decor would be a perfect gift for a newborn baby's nursery. Equally, this would also be a wonderful gift for an older child to personalise their room and make it all the more beautiful.
