What to get the kids in your life this Christmas

14th December, 2018

Shopping for kids can be both stressful and fun—on one hand there’s no shortage of adorable things to buy, on the other their interests can be so short-lived that it can be daunting to choose a gift that will engage them longer than it takes to rip the wrapping off. I’ve been on the hunt for gifts to give my girls and nieces and nephew along with friends’ kids so I’ve scoured high and low for just the right thing to bring a smile to a little one’s face.

Tutu du Monde Twelfth night tutu dress

I’m a huge fan of Tutu du Monde for Sophia and Grace and can attest to how gorgeous their pieces are. And what will bring a smile to a little girl’s face more than a gorgeous little tutu of their very own?

Stella McCartney Kids polka dot skirt

For a special occasion, I can’t go past this adorable little skirt.

A splash of colour for the little girl who loves all things bold and bright.

What’s on Sophia and Grace’s Christmas list

15th December, 2017

Shopping for Sophia and Grace‘s Christmas presents is one of my favourite parts of the festive season. Without a doubt seeing their little faces excitedly light up when it’s time to open gifts come December 25th is a highlight every year. However as anyone with children can attest what’s in one minute, will be out the next so I try to pay close attention in the lead up to Christmas when it comes to what the girls are loving. Here’s what I’ve narrowed it down to…

Alimrose Willow Fairy Doll 

The girls are into all things dolls and fairies so I’m sure this will be a hit.

The Wiggles Dress Up Emma Doll

I’ve posted a few times on Instagram about Sophia’s love for the The Wiggles. It’s no surprise that she’s been eyeing this Emma doll for awhile and she’ll love the fact she can play dress ups with it.

Micro Scooters Mini Micro Deluxe

My girls are super active, especially Sophia who is at that age where she’s constantly running around. I can see her using this when we go on our daily walks.

Our Generation Clydesdale Holiday Horse

It must be a family thing because the girls love horses! This one comes with cute Christmas accessories.

Witchery Tie Front Shoe

I like to get the girls new shoes every Christmas and this particular pair has a cute bow detail that they’ll love.

Tutu du Monde Swan Queen Tutu Dress

I’m a huge fan of everything by Tutu du Monde—everything they make is so intricate and beautiful. The girls love their dresses too and I can’t resist how cute they both look in a tutu.

Witchery Girls Pearl Headpiece

I think most little girls love hair accessories and my girls are no different. I really love this headpiece for the girls to wear on special occasions.

Marquise Strawberry Underwear

Yes it’s totally practical but look how cute they are! I like incorporating practical gifts in the mix and underwear is the kind of thing that the girls can never have enough of.

Camilla Girls Tank Dress

The print on this is so cute for summer. I like vibrant and colourful pieces at this time of year and this is totally on trend.

Rock Your Kid Unicorn Circus Dress

Unicorns plus pink equals every little girl’s dream come true. The tulle skirt is also a pretty touch.

Zimmermann Swim Lumino Bikini

We’re lucky enough to live near a beach so we pretty much live there all summer which means I’m always on the hunt for cute swimmers for the girls. The print on this is gorgeous.
