Christmas 2020 gift guide for children

The one for the children. They say you should view Christmas through the eyes of a child and this year I think we should all try to find the joy that children find in the festive season. Let's face it it will be one of the strangest Christmases we have all had. So I think this year we need to be a bit more childish and fun. This is my top picks for the children in your life. 

Some of these items have been kindly gifted for inclusion in this guide. Some I have bought as gifts myself they will all be reviewed the same. 

Toys


These are all from Super wings. If you have a little one you probably all ready know about Super Wings. I can already guess your little one has some of these on their Christmas list.  They do everything from a small gift like Transforming Supercharged Jett to the cool Supercharged paul to Super Wings World Aircraft is an incredible gift. I know any child would be delighted to see this one Christmas morning.

This is the super exciting Avocado kids. This is a monthly subscription box aimed at kids who are fussy eater to help them explore new food and learn and have fun at the same time. 
What the brand says
 Aimed at kids 4-12 years, Avocado Kids is a monthly cooking-club that delivers hours of ‘edible education’ straight to the door, where kids learn how to become little superchefs, where their food comes from, kitchen and life skills, and by actively cooking themselves, to empower them (fussy eaters in particular) to try new foods.  Each box follows superfood hero, the Avocado Kid, on a new culinary adventure. Whether he lands in Mexico, the USA or elsewhere, the box features 4-easy to follow recipes, shopping lists to get kids picking their own ingredients, and fun facts about the cuisines and traditions of each country. Creative activities are also included; how to decorate the table for family date night, dinner ‘talk time’ coasters, how to grown your own (e.g. an avocado tree or pumpkin!), and there’s even a themed cook-along Spotify playlist. Ultimately Avocado Kids creates family time and many needed activities for kids and parents alike.
Next up we have Piccolothe premium baby and toddler food brand on a mission to create the healthiest and tastiest meals.

Each box is tailored to the baby’s age, stage and dietary requirements, while also factoring in parents' eating goals for their little ones. They’re also delivered for free, straight to their door – so that’s one less thing parents need to worry about.

Clothing 


Here we have a jacket from one of my favriote brands Tog24. This is the Dowles kids hooded down jacket rumba. A good winter jacket is always a great gift for any child. I mean its the gift of being cosy so what is not to love. I have a few Tog24 jackets myself and I love how warm and practical and not to mention hard-wearing so this makes them the perfect gift for any child. 

What the brand says
Ideal for school and holidays, our lightweight, breathable jacket stuffs down small into a school bag or holdall, then puffs up back into life when they need to wear it. Designed for a Yorkshire winter, it's incredibly warm thanks to the natural insulating properties of real down. Warm enough to wear as a coat. 
Safety is key, so we've kept the design simple with no strings or toggles to get tangled. Cuffs and hem are elasticated too for a snug fit that keeps out the wind, and it also has two roomy pockets to keep a pair of gloves handy. Just like the grown-up TOG24 jackets, it is branded with a rubberised emblem on the sleeve.

This is a stunning and beautifully illustrated book called Danny's Dream. Not only is it a fantastic story but the author is an inspiration to all of us. This should definitely be part of your Christmas shopping this year. 
What the author says
The children’s tale inspired by the remarkable achievements of disabled athletes competing at the Paralympics. It is the perfect children’s book to teach kids about diversity and inclusion, illustrated by disabled artist Ian Parker.  Danny’s Dream (for ages 3-8) is a heartwarming tale with 34 beautiful illustrations, about overcoming adversity and never giving up. When Danny, the fastest runner at his school, suffers a terrible accident, he thinks his dream of winning an Olympic Gold Medal is over. Then one day he discovers something magical at the end of his Grandma’s garden that will change his life forever.

Ian Parker, who was born with AMC, a condition that rendered him with permanently unusable limbs, spent two years painting all 34 illustrations for the book using a pencil and brush in his mouth. This is the first time a disabled artist has been involved in creating a children’s book that features a disabled child as the central character.  The book is great for parents to read at bedtime to their little ones, or for slightly older children to read themselves. Especially during these times where children are faced with adversity now more than ever, teaching them that you can overcome anything you put your mind too.
