For this last in my installment of ethical Christmas gift guides I’ve focused on little kids as I find teenagers so difficult to buy for.  I did put a guide together last year that included ethical gift ideas for teenagers if you’re looking for inspiration!

Ethical Christmas Gift Ideas for Babies

1.  Cat Soft Toy* (£18.35) by Jane Foster via Etsy UK – babies will love the bright face on this soft toy, and it’s a great shape for little hands to grab!

2.  Zebra Soft Toy (£29) from Wildly Woolly – a lovely fair-trade hand knitted zebra soft toy from Moral Fibres sponsor Wildly Woolly.

3.  Romper* (£20) from Frugi – the cutest little romper.

4.  Charlie Bears Bunny (£14.90) from GreenBee Kids – made from organically grown cotton, filled with 100% recycled fibres and dyed with non-allergenic non-toxic paints there are no nasties in this little bunny.

5.  My First Book of Nature* (£3.77) – my daughter has a couple of these Alain Gree board books and they are great for little hands, full of bright and engaging illustrations, and the perfect introduction to nature.

6.  Lambswool Jumper* (£49) by Howies*.  Soft, cosy and festive!

7.  Polar Berg T-Shirt* (£15.96) by Rapanui via Ethical Superstore – I love the designs of these ethical t-shirts.

8.  Wire Bike Tree Decoration (£2.50) from RE – this bike tree decoration is just brilliant.  It would make a lovely stocking filler or as part of the wrapping (with the bonus that it can be hung on the tree afterwards!).

9.  Sardine Run Mug (£10.95) from Howkapow – this lovely mug is made by a family run business on the isle of Jersey.

10.  Wire Toasting Fork (from £4.50) from RE – handmade in Northumberland, no camping trip is complete without this nostalgic addition!

 

Look out for my final Christmas gift guide, tomorrow.  It’ll be packed with ethical gift ideas for kids.  In the meantime you can catch the previous ethical gift guides.
