You don’t have to fall down the trap of buying plastic for the children in your lift this Christmas, it is possible to buy ethically when shopping for little ones this Christmas. Our top tip is to check out pre-loved shopping websites such as Ebay and Facebook Marketplace as well as your local charity shop – you’ll be amazed what you can find which is in great condition and just needs a new home!
We’ve put together our Children’s Gift Guide with a selection of Fair Trade gifts to suit all budgets which are sure to make the recipient smile!
The wooden animals from Lanka Kade are an absolute favourite and make the perfect gift for pre-schoolers! Chunky, brightly coloured and stackable (!) choose from our huge selections which includes animals, insects, dinosaurs and more!
100% wool and fleece lined, these rainbow mittens are just the most fun way to keep little hands warm! Hand knitted in Nepal and available in two sizes.
The finger puppet shoulder bags from Koseli are probably one of our top products in the whole shop! The beautifully made, zip-up, felt shoulder bag is perfect for keeping your child’s bits and bobs safe and the finger puppets nestled inside the pockets on the front provide a great toy/distraction when required! We also sell the finger puppets separately to the bags which means you can mix and match to choose your child’s favourite animals.
The Host of Angels tree decorations are a great way to share the Christmas story. Each box contains six gold foiled, solid Fairtrade chocolate angel decorations, a Christmas story activity poster and a Christmas story sticker set.
If you’re wanting to buy clothes for Christmas you can’t go wrong with one of these knitted cardigans – available in sizes from 6 months up to around 7 years, in a range of colours (each one is unique!). Don’t be afraid to ask for assistance when looking at the cardigans as the sizes can be a little confusing!
Brand new from Lanka Kade, the Toy Town playset is a real showstopper of a gift! Made to last for years, it can be combined with the Lanka Kade wooden figures and vehicles for hours of small world play.
We hope we have provided you with a bit of inspiration for the little ones in your life this Christmas. Lots of the products featured are available on our webshop, but not everything. As always, if there is something you would like but you can’t find it online – please get in touch!
