A Natural, New Age Guide to Christmas Gifts for KIDS!
Christmas is such a magical time for children! I have such fond memories of writing letters for Santa, leaving out milk and cookies and waiting up, hoping to catch a glimpse.
Of course, presents are part of the big excitement too and it’s lovely to watch a child’s eyes light up when Santa has brought them something really special.
I like to buy local, hand-made, eco-friendly, fair-trade or organic gifts whenever I can. It really does make a difference. You can make a difference too.
Here are some amazing natural or new age kid’s gifts that have caught my eye.
Patchwork Owl Backpack. Cutest thing ever and a bargain at $14! Perfect for stashing treasures when out and about. Buy it online at Bubbabums.
Wooden Rainbow. All natural and handmade, using safe, green paint and finished with olive oil and beeswax. Buy it online for $30 from JaxFancy on Etsy.
Munakuppi Pig Egg Pet. So cute! Made from clay, these gorgeous little animals are an updated version of the chia pet! It comes with the seeds and instructions so kids can learn how to grow their own food! At only $4.95 from Muncheons online, these will make fabulous stocking stuffers.
Embrace Virtues Gift Set. An absolutely beautiful, thoughtful gift for babies. Included is an affirmation card kit with beautiful illustrations, a CD – affirming your baby’s spiritual potential, and a cuddle peace doll. Buy it online from Kindred Gifts for $55.00.
Mermaid Garden Kit. Terri is a real natural, new age mum who makes garden kits with lots of love. Her latest range features beautiful mermaids and everything to go with them for around $46. Check them out at her Facebook page, Little Green Fairies.
Wire Name Necklaces. This is a gorgeous collaboration between two Facebook pages – Mumma Macs and Wire Name Wizard. Very unique and made with amber, hazelwood and semi-precious stones. I think I want one for myself! Go here to order.
DIY Wooden Robot Lamp. Great for the older kids, this gift is educational and creative! You can paint it or leave it raw and the joints are moveable so the kids can change it around. But it online from Rudy and the Dodo here for $45.
Natural Play Make Up. I love this idea. Let the kids experiment and have fun without the toxins and without using your expensive makeup! In pink or yellow bags from Pure Poppet. Buy online at New Age Child here for $25.
Solar-Powered Mobile Phone Charger. One for the hard-to-buy-for teenager. Safe, portable and powered by the sun. A great green gift! Buy online from BioMe Eco Store here for $40.
Chocolate Stocking Stuffer. We don’t buy or eat a lot of sweets, but come Christmas time, it’s a tradition to put chocolate in the stockings! I love these “Gems” from Organic Times – they have no artificial colours, flavours, gmos and are organic! Buy online here for less than $4.
