The Baby & Toddler Christmas 'Big Gift' Guide 2022
With the countdown to Christmas starting extra early this year (with some shops getting their Christmas decs out in August) we have decided to help those wanting to make an early start by creating our 'Big Gift' Christmas guide a little early this year to give you some Christmas gift inspiration for your little one's before they start writing their Christmas list. 
With so many toys on the market it can be so difficult to choose just the right gift for the little one's in your life. Here, we will aim to give you more information on some of our great products, along with age recommendations so hopefully making your choice a little easier. 
This year we want to really focus on our aim of providing you with high quality products from brands that align with our sustainable ethos. We believe that paying a little bit more for great quality products that will stand the test of time and last your little one several years is the best way towards a sustainable future. Not to mention, getting it all sorted now means you'll be able to save yourself a dreaded last minute shop where you're searching for out of stock toys. To save you the hassle, we've already found the best Christmas presents for babies & toddlers that they're sure to love.
Many of our products are gender-neutral allowing them to be passed to younger siblings extending their life span. With a minimalistic Scandinavian feel, many of the toys on our gift guide are handmade from ethically sourced materials by the great brands we hand select.
