Christmas Gift Ideas for Children Blogs

Welcome to my Christmas Gift ideas for Children Blog

This is my Christmas gift ideas for Children blog. I post blogs about gift ideas which catch my eye when looking around the shops or when searching online.

When looking for children I try to focus on ecologically friendly and sustainable children’s gifts which can be handed down or recycled when they have finished with them. Too many children gifts arrive in lots of plastic packaging and are themselves made of composite plastics which are difficult to recycle. I fear that if you are not careful it’s easy to buy children’s gifts which will have nowhere to go but landfill when they get broken or the children outgrow them.

Boots for Christmas Baby Clothes

As it is 3 months to Christmas today, it really is time to start ticking off your things to do list.  If you don't feel like getting into the whole cake baking and Christmas card writing part of Christmas yet, how about thinking about winter clothes and specifically...

Snow Globe

I have confession to make.  I love snow globes.  Nothing sums up better Christmasy glittery decorations than a pretty snow globe. Snow globes were originally made by the Vienna Snow Globe Company in 1905 and are still made and finished there by hand there.  However,...

Argos top toys for Christmas 2015

It is hard to believe that Argos published their list of top Christmas Toys for 2015 in June!  It seems to me that Argos should be an authority in this area given that they have been a great supplier of toys for decades.  I can clearly remember getting the Autumn...
