Stocking Stuffers

It is an absolute pet peeve of mine to fill stockings, santa sacks, whatever you do in your home, with items that will end up in the rubbish a few days later. I prefer to buy less but good quality small items or consumables instead. 
Here are some of my favourites:
  • Art supplies- a great low cost option that you know will be enjoyed and put to good use. We have a great range of pencils, felts, paints and much more. 
  • Playdough and subsequent tools, stamps, rolling pins etc
  • Orchard toys mini games- games are such a great option as you can use them over the summer whether you are going away on holiday or just spending time at home. Games from orchard toys are my favourite, perfectly designed for even the youngest of children, easy to understand and fun to play even for adults.
  • Hape tape and vehicle - such a brilliant open ended item that will provide hours of entertainment. A roll of tape and a wooden vehicle, comes in sky with plane, road with car or track with train.
  • Sidewalk chalk and toolsBrilliant tool for the summer time. A great first mark making tool. I love this set because of the tools that come with the chalk.
  • Animal figurines- a staple of any play space. I love these ones from Lanka Kade, ethically and sustainably produced. Perfect for all ages.
