Santas elves have been working hard to prepare for Christmas; however, our team at Gretna Green have also worked tirelessly to make sure Christmas is as easy and successful this year! We have carefully selected products that the kids in your life will love, in our Gifts for Kids category. So whether you’re gifting a son, daughter, niece or nephew at Gretna Green, we have you gifting ready.
When shopping for children, the best rule of thumb is one thing they want, one thing they need, one thing they wear and one to read… However, we have included a number five, and a little sneaky 6…
1. One thing they want
This year we launched our new range of Katie Loxton, which has a fabulous kids and baby selection, with stunning gifting options. The range includes soft plush toys, which come in a cute little box ready to be wrapped and placed under the tree. We also have a range of Keel toy teddies, including our 70cm Henry Bear.
2. One thing they need
Kids always need backpacks, whether for school, sleepovers with friends or just to carry around all their toys! This year, why not treat the kids in your life to a Harris Tweed backpack, with a practical yet stylish design? These backpacks make for the cutest gift, available in a variety of colours.
3. One thing to wear
Alongside Katie Loxton, we have also introduced sister brand Joma Jewellery, creating the sweetest range of kids' jewellery. With sentimental pieces, including ‘Sweetheart’ ‘Lucky Star’, and ‘Bright Spark’. And for those little adventurers, we have an exciting range of Keycraft toys, including snap-on watches.
4. One thing to read
We have various top kids' books to gift this Christmas, including Scottish favourites such as Greyfriars Bobby and the Hamish McHaggis series. We also stock the bestselling kids' book The Wonky Donkey this book is not only great for kids but also for adults, with the line;
Cranky, stinky, dinky, lanky, honky, tonky, winky, wonky, donkey
No one will have a straight face!
5. Stocking fillers
Christmas shopping for kids is not complete without some additional sweeties… and our new range of Gretna Green sweets is an adorable gift. Designed in traditional sweetshop packaging and a range of the ‘old favourites', including dolly mixtures, your children are sure to love. What is Christmas without an Elf… Our Keels Christmas Elf is the perfect stocking filler or night-before gift, paired with one of our other Keels Chrismas range, including our Keeleco Christmas Penguin.
6. One wee extra won’t hurt…
The night before is not the night before without one of our Christmas Eve boxes, all wrapped up in either a hamper tray or a white ‘shoe’ box. Let us make Christmas special and easy this year.
