Continuing our series of Christmas gift lists, which so far has covered stocking fillers and ideas for babies, we’ve been scouring the Natural Connection website for the best gifts for young children.
Here are some of our favourites:
Enchanted Playsilks from Sarah’s Silks
Made for 100% natural and sustainable Chinese silk, these silks are just perfect for open-ended play. Available in a range of colours they can be used for dressing up, building forts, wrapping dollies and a whole range of other activities – they also look beautiful on a seasonal table (if you can prize them away from the children that is)!
A Waldorf doll
These dolls are hand-knitted with cotton yarn and filled with pure sheep’s wool. Inspired by a philosophy which champions imaginative play, a Waldorf doll will be a friend and inspiration to their lucky recipient for years to come.
A doll sling
If they already have a favourite doll, what better than a child-sized sling to carry them around in? Available in a range of colours and styles which will appeal to both boys and girls these slings can help pass on a love of babywearing to the next generation.
A cosy poncho
Perfect for snuggling up on the sofa or as an extra layer on a chilly evening, these gorgeous upcycled ponchos from Woolly Pedlar are both stylish and environmentally friendly.
A toddler carrier
The need to be held does not disappear with the baby stage, and with a well-designed carrier you can keep on wearing your child into the toddler years and beyond. In fact when they’re just getting used to walking having a sling in the bag can be super useful for when those little legs get tired. You might argue this is more a gift for the parents, but it may well be the child who comes to love it most of all.
