Wyse London Ines ribbed rainbow cashmere slouchy jumper – it’s pretty obvious, we love Wyse London. The Founder Marielle has such a fantastic eye for design, there is not a single piece we wouldn’t happily add to our wardrobe. The jumper included in this giveaway is a new take on Wyse’s iconic “rainbow” jumper. The new, slightly deeper colours on a ribbed cashmere knit give it a sophisticated edge whilst still being fun.

Life's Little Luxuries giveaway

The Bird Box large 3-wick scented candle – The Bird Box is a brand which was born out of the desire to create a scented candle which was made from wooly natural ingredients which would not irritate sensitive souls. The subtle fragrances fill the room without being overpowering.

Christmas gift guide | Boys

All our kids will have already decided what Father Christmas should bring for them if they make the “Nice” list but sometimes, it is nice to pop a few surprises under the tree…or if you have nieces and nephews to buy for it can be a treat (for the parents) to find something which does not make loud sounds and have flashing lights. Here are a few present ideas for the kids this Christmas…not a “batteries required” sticker in sight…heaven.

Christmas gift ideas for boys

1. Le Grand Garage by Le Toy Van at Cottage Toys – Harry and Teddy have this and it is played with almost daily. They love the fact the cars can so down the curved ramps (not a feature many toy garages have but it does entertain the kids!).

2. Blue planet puzzle by Janod at Toyella – Harry loves doing puzzles at the moment and this one is beautiful nd full of detail for kids to talk about.

3. Blackboard blocks and chalk set by Kitpas at Scout & Co – these building blocks can be made into a kid’s own world as they design the windows, doors, people and anything else which they feel need to be added to their creation with the bright chalks.

4. Fire Rescue building blocks by PlusPlus at The Kid Who – PlusPlus are another toy the kids already love and a fire engine is always a winner…a perfect combination! An added bonus is it will keep them busy for hours.

5. Zooblock crane by Djeco at Tickety Boo – the boys have a couple of the smaller sets and enjoyed being able to construct them and use the screwdriver to build the sets. They are like a simplified Mecano.

6. Ride-on racing car by Vilac at Little Citizens Boutique – any kids would love this…especially if it meant bumping into the odd skirting board…

7. Quadrilla Marble Run by Hape Toys – Katie bought Teddy a set for his birthday and both the boys absolutely adore it. Multiple marble run courses can be made up becoming more and more elaborate.

8. Bioblo blocks from Toyella – these simple, thin wooden building blocks really do challenge kids’ minds. Even adults will not be able to resist making something out of these.

9. Animal Tea Party Set by Omm design at The Pippa & Ike Show – it is tricky to find a tea set which is not overly “girly”. This little tin set is perfect. Georgie has had many cups of tea made by Teddy from this set.

Kids Christmas Gift Guide

1. Pear Doll’s House by Rock & Pebble at The Kid Who – this unusual doll’s house will become a piece your little one can treasure.

2. Luggy basket by Olli Ella – your little lady can help pick up around the house or go out and about shopping with you with this adorable basket.

3. Unicorn necklace by A Mini Penny at Cissy Wears – simply pretty.

4. “Magic” giant colouring poster by OMY at Scout & Co – we had a poster like this last Christmas and it kept the minis and their friends occupied for hours.

5. Musical Box by Djeco at Tickety Boo – this would be an adorable gift and even more exciting if filled with a few bits of jewellery to play dress up with.

6. Rosaline Doll Bed by Small Stuff at Scandi Mini – a beautiful shade of pink, there is nothing sickly about this little crib. A beautiful design which will look stunning in any little girl’s room.

7. Puppet Theatre by Moulin Roty at Cottage Toys – your little ones can put on a show on Christmas Day with this gorgeous little theatre.

8. Little Angel Kit by Meri Meri at Little Citizens Boutique – we cannot think of many girls who wouldn’t want to be an angel at Christmas.

9. Building set by Miclik at Toyella – let their imaginations go with this ingenious building system.

Finally, if you find getting the kids to write thank you letters more than a chore, these origami notes might make it a bit easier. The polar bear is perfect for Christmas.
