Christmas Gift Guide for… Cool Kids

Hi there and welcome to another instalment of my Christmas Gift Guides for 2014.

Christmas for me is about spending time with the people I love, and especially my two daughters. This list encompasses gift ideas for those cool kids you know, some of whom I’m sure are actually adults…

First up is this Moomin Swim House from cult online kids wear shop Cissy Wears  in London. These classic Swedish illustrations and animations, by Tove Jansson, and the characters within, still appeal to children and adults alike.

The Moomins are still going strong and have reached cult status- with their own theme park in Finland- Moomin World.

I love melamine for many reasons, including its obvious unbreakable quality but also that it doesn’t chill food like a pot plate does (when you forget to warm the plates in the oven).

My eldest actually received this as one of her birthday gifts and we’ll be trying it out this weekend no doubt. Buy it from Not On The High Street.

This lovely jumper from Tu at Sainsburys– its even got ducks on it… Yet again I need it in my size- a classic Fair Isle look. My girls might have matching jumpers this Christmas day 😉
