‘Tis the season to be jolly, fuel imaginations and add a sprinkling of magic. Our kid’s gift guide is all that and more. We’ve rounded up something they’ll want, something they need, something to wear and something to read – for babies, kids, teens and everything in-between.


“With money practically redundant in the physical sense this year, allow the little ones in your life the joy of imaginary spending. This wooden till from Great Little Trading Co will provide hours of entertainment. And who doesn’t love playing shop?!”

Karin Akesson Hold Your Head Up High Giraffe Print, £20 at www.libertylondon.com


“There’s something so majestical about Giraffes, and I love the simplicity if this Karin Akesson print. Also, we all need a reminder to hold our head up high from time to time.”

Elaine, Lifestyle Editor


“Multifunctional is music to my ears these days and this iCandy MiChair system can be used from zero through to six years – the dream! It comes complete with a Newborn Pod which can be docked onto the highchair or used as a rocker on the floor and the highchair itself can later transform into a child’s seat, so there’s no doubt you’ll get your cost-per-use out of it. Also, have you ever seen a more stylish piece of kit?
