For the last of my ethical gift guides, I’ve rounded up some lovely little ethical gift ideas for children.  As per the last two guides, all gifts are budget friendly (there’s nothing in this guide over £35) and all come from smaller independent shops and makers.ethical kids gift ideas

Liberty Fabric Wire Name Sign (£14).  The cutest little handmade sign.  I’ve bought one for my daughter’s 1st birthday (and yes, that has come around really quickly…  Too quickly.).

Buster The Bear Clock (£25).  A sweet addition to any kids bedroom.

Sleepy Doe Pyjamas (£28).  The sweetest pyjamas, designed and made in the UK, free from harmful dyes and made from ecological cotton.  A unisex design is also available.

Lambswool Elephant (£32).  Soft and cuddly, and sure to be a firm favourite for years to come.

I’ve got my second ethical gift guide here for you today – this time concentrating on ethical gifts for men.  In case you missed part one, my ethical gift guide for her is right this way.

As always everything is under £50, and should suit all budgets.  Again, I’ve concentrated on items available from smaller independent shops and makers:

Map Coasters (£8 each/£24 for set of four) from Alp & Dash via Etsy.  What a great gift for walkers, outdoors enthusiasts and/or map lovers.  Depicting the topography of the British Isles, the map coasters are available for The Cairngorms, Snowdonia and the Welsh 3000s, the Peak District, the Lake District, and more.  I love a good map and am currently coveting these for myself!
