What could be more fun than shopping for babies and toddlers? Not much if you ask us. So whether you have little kids of your own, friends with babies, or nieces and nephews, we’ve rounded up some of the cutest and best gifts around. We’ve also included some Amelia has already (and loves) and others that we just think would make lovely gifts. Take a look…
1. Dunnes Stores – Princess Ella
Princess Ella doll - €12 / Pyjama set €14 - €16
This is pretty cool – a doll that is able to get ready for bed with you every night! There’s a matching dolls outfit with every pyjama set you buy, it just might help make bedtime a little easier! Available in sizes age 2 – 9 years.
2. Zara – Moss Knit Hat - €7.95
Perfect gift to keep your little one cosy this winter and let’s face it who doesn’t love a bobble hat? They also have a cool selection for any little men in your life.
3. Argos – Chad Valley Double Sided Easel - €39.29
Recommended by an art teacher, this double sided easel is plastic and very sturdy. Great for your budding little artists and keeping little ones busy on rainy days.
4. Okko – Leather moccasins - €22.95
We love these snazzy, leather moccasins from Irish company Okko. Easy to put on, easy to take off and super stylish. And if they’re good enough for the Kardashian – Disick kids - we’ll take a pair in every colour!
5. Amelia loves – Cupcake Dummy Holder - €18
Sick of losing dummies or not being able to find them amongst all the contents of your changing bag? This patent, leather bag is ideal for keeping dummies safe and clean and also features a button fastening handle to attach it to your changing bag, cot or pushchair.
6. Gap – Grey wool romper - €29.95
We love this sweet sleep suit in neutral grey. Super soft it’s sure to keep the little bunny in your life comfy and cosy.
7. Smyths Toy Store – My Little Farm - €36.99
This was and still is, a big hit with Amelia. The farm house has lots of animal sounds (which she loves) and comes with a tractor and trailer, fences, farm animals, a farmer and some bales of hay.
8. IKEA – Play Kitchen - €80
This play kitchen is one of the more reasonably priced around and will make for hours of imaginative play for your little one.
9. IKEA – Play pots and pans €10 and Play food €8.50
Amelia loves these pots and pans (mostly to bang!) and the cute play food items (from carrots to tomatoes and beyond) are perfect for pretending to cook with. IKEA also have a very cute set of play cupcakes complete with a pretend cake stand and Amelia spends a lot of time having tea parties with these. So cute!
