Our Sock-ing Filler Christmas Gift Guide! 12 Great Gift Ideas🎁•
Posted on December 13 2023
Hello December, and hello Christmas shopping!
Whether you love Christmas shopping or prefer not to think too much about it, here at The Little Sock Company we are all about making parents' and guardians' lives that little bit easier, in addition to family members and friends!
And so inspired by the 12 days of Christmas, I (Katie) have thoroughly enjoyed compiling this list of 12 Christmas present ideas for babies and children created by fellow British businesses, to help ensure your Christmas shopping is well and truly ticked off your to-do list before the Big Day…
1. Ivy & Stitch Established in 2020,
Ivy & Stitch specialise in personalised beautifully British gifts.
When I was exploring the ‘Little Ones’ section on their website, I was immediately drawn to their ‘Kids Baking Set + Apron’ that you can personalise especially for that budding Great British Bake Off star you know and love this Christmas!
Bibevie’s baby clothes and matching bibs are not only innovative and problem-solving, but they also look super snuggly and comfortable and are carefully crafted with the present and future in mind.
Designed for newborns and toddlers up to 18 months old, I not only love the story behind this business and its values, but I have also fallen head over heels for the embroidered animal faces on their dungarees! Which clothing set is your favourite?
3. Small Kins
Driven by their mission to inspire children to connect, play and learn together, Small Kins have lovingly created a collection of special, long-lasting toys.
From bikes and trikes for older children, to heavenly sensory play mats for little ones who are not yet on their toes, you can dive into their haven of children’s goodies here.
4. This wouldn’t truly be a ‘Sock-ing Filler Christmas Gift Guide’ without socks…
So I thought I’d share our ‘Personalised Mini Me Matching Adult and Child Socks Gift Sets’ which are proving to be a popular prezzie this Christmas!
In addition to being soft, cotton-rich and made from our award-winning Stay-On knit, with anti-slip soles on baby and children’s sizes, purchasing a Mini Me Christmas Gift Set also means you’ll be ticking two presents off your Christmas shopping list at once!
5. The Little Worne Store
Founded out of lockdown in 2020 by Britt, The Little Worne Store prides itself on being the first and original hand-embroidered and knitted baby name cardigan store!
All made right here in the UK, if you are searching for children’s Christmas clothing, in addition to their gorgeous cardigans they also knit and hand embroider jumpers, bonnets, blankets and more! Here is a link to their website.
6. Etta Loves
What makes Etta Loves so special?
They work with a children’s vision expert and their partners at The University of Sussex to create unique products that support babies’ visual and cognitive development.
From trusty muslins (because you can never have enough of them!), to teethers, children’s bath toys and baby books, you can also search for Christmas gift ideas by age on their website which makes Christmas shopping even simpler!
7. The Very Hungry Caterpillar Gift Set for baby
We all know and love the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, but have you read ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Father Christmas’?
This magical new story can be found tucked up alongside two pairs of our award-winning Non-Slip Stay on Socks, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Teether Rattle and The Very Hungry Caterpillar Unfold and Discover Soft Book in this one-of-a-kind Christmas gift set!
8. Green Crayon Green
Crayon handmakes their special blend of soy wax, carnauba wax and cocoa butter crayons which are non-toxic and coloured with earth pigments – wow!
They also have lots of wonderful toddler Christmas crafts here on their website.
9. Little Wild Co.
Little Wild Co. is a mother and daughter team that designs and offers products for little people that take inspiration from British wildlife.
What I this is wonderful about this business is that every purchase you make with them gives back, as they support five projects centred around women and children. If only I could still wrap our little ones up in their snuggly swaddle blankets!
10. Harry & Rose
Is there anything softer than a baby’s skin?
Harry & Rose’s award-winning luxury baby skincare is said to be natural, pure and organic, and has been lovingly formulated to treasure and take care of it. And although this isn’t a stocking filler present a baby can play with, it’s one I hope their skin will thank you for.
11. Born to Farm
Becky launched Born to Farm in 2020, and she designs quality and affordable farming-themed gifts for babies, children, and adults.
If you are searching for stocking filler ideas for a tractor-mad little one or a small person who everyone already knows is ‘born to farm’, look no further!
12. Cotton Twist
Children love their arts and crafts, and the team at Cotton Twist has created this fantastic range of Activity Boxes that are bound to get their imaginations racing.
I think their ‘Make Your Own Daily Task Chart’ is a simple way to make family jobs fun, and I might see if our little ones would like to add it to their Father Christmas lists!
From my family to yours, and from the small and mighty team here at The Little Sock Company, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
