Let’s be frank. Finding a token gift - whether a stocking filler or a little something for a mate's child - can sometimes be just as time consuming as picking out a big one. To avoid you grabbing something that'll be tossed aside with the gift wrap, here's our 'Best In Show' for gifts under £20.
FOR CREATIVES: Crayon Rocks
These colourful rocks make us want to get creative, so imagine what kids will make of them.'
Perfectly pebble-shaped, Crayon Rocks are an all-natural alternative to standard crayons, made from non-toxic soy bean and natural waxes. Kitpas crayons are even more inventive than that. Perfect for doodling on paper like your standard crayon, but there's a twist - they can be used on windows as well without any dramas - just wet and wipe to get your panes sparkling again. Oh, and one more thing. They're non-toxic too. A proper little craft box win. For kids who like making and doing, Micador have loads of great craft and art supplies they'll love to dig out of their stocking on Christmas morning.
FOR THE NATURE LOVERS: Abrams & Chronicle Books My Friend Earth
'Teach kids easily about nature and the environment with this stunning picture book.'
With bold, full-page illustrations and die-cut pages, My Friend Earth is a striking picture book that really engages preschoolers. It introduces topics of our natural world and environmentalism in an easy to grasp way, personifying the earth as a girl who does wonderful things, from tending to animals to sprinkling powdery snow over the ground.
FOR SAVEY-CATS: Janod Fawn Moneybox
'We love the cute face and antlers on this moneybox - a great place to stow their Christmas and birthday money.'
It's never too early to learn how to save and the Janod Fawn Moneybox just begs to be fed notes and coins. It's made of wood with a wide slot and easy-to-manage hatch underneath for when they get that urge to spend spend spend. Looks great on the shelf too.
FOR CHOCOHOLICS: Play In Choc Toychoc Box
'Allergen free chocolate and a non-plastic toy, this is the best kind of treat box for kids.'
For a truly scrumptious treat, look no further than the Toychoc Box. An earth-friendly surprise box, each contains two individually wrapped, organic and dairy-free chocolates as well as a fun cardboard toy to assemble. Every box has a theme, from dinosaurs to endangered animals, with 18 different toys to collect. They are an ideal stocking filler or tiny treat any time of the year.
FOR THE TINY ONES: Matchstick Monkey
'It has wide arms for little hands to improve motor-skills, while relieving teething pain.'
Matchstick Monkey is a bonafide BFF of KIDLY and he's ready to be one for your little one too. Designed to chew, but a great little fidget toy as well, it's perfect for your tots to take with them everywhere. If you need back up for those awkward teething gels during the thick of teething, he can help with that too. Basically he's on hand for them and on call for you. What a monkey!
FOR AN ETHICAL CUDDLE: Best Years Organic Cotton Diplodocus
'When you buy this, another child in the world gets a better future too. We love that.'
Buy an ethical toy that will bring a smile on Christmas morning and help children in Bangladesh with this Organic Cotton Diplodocus. In a bright colour and made from super soft cotton, this rattle is great for stimulating visual and tactile skills. Oh, and Pebble products are made entirely by hand with natural materials too. Love.
