Banjo’s Festive Features: Christmas Gift Guide
It’s that time of year again… the nights are getting longer – and so are our to-do lists!
The Cats at Banjo HQ are here with a helping paw to provide some inspiration for your festive shopping.
We’ve selected some of our favourite gifts and stocking fillers for the kid (age 6+) who has almost everything. Enjoy!
- We were brought up on Guess Who? and would have loved this special dinosaur edition from the Natural History Museum!
- Curious kids who want to learn more about the incredible world around us will love this stunning (and educational!) book about glow in the dark creatures!
- For the budding astronomer in your house, check out this cool 3D solar system puzzle.
- Remind them that they’re one of a kind with this funky T-shirt from Tate
- Lose yourselves in this amazing book from Molly Oldfield about absolutely EVERYTHING!
- They’ll love creating their own papercraft aviary with this gorgeous kit from Alice Melvin
- They can write, draw (and snack…) comfortably anywhere with this made-for-kids beanbag laptray!
- Get them bundled up and into the great outdoors with this creative kit from Search & Scribble – the perfect activity for Boxing Day!
For older kids, check out this beautifully illustrated guide to some incredible music artists; this fast-paced cat-celeb card game; this fun (and educational!) Great Women Memory Game and develop their logic and dexterity skills with this great Zig & Go kit from Djeco.
Looking for stocking fillers?
- We LOVE badges! Check out these from the Kindness Co-op.
- We can’t get enough of these beautiful, handmade cat purses!
- If visits from Santa (and Banjo Robinson!) aren’t enough – why not encourage the tooth fairy to be a bit more organised with this lovely tin?
- Take mask-wearing to a new level with this adorable badger face covering from Tate!
- And these colour-in postcards are sure to make them happy (and the recipients too!)
- Everyone needs a cool torch for adventures (and midnight feasts)…
- Everyone also needs an EXTREMELY bouncy ball.
- And don’t forget the most classic stocking filler of all time (nobody said they had to be real ones…)
And for a special Christmas Eve surprise, who not treat your family to our brand new picture book, Banjo Robinson and the Christmas Kitten? This delightful story of friendship, mystery and magic will surely become part of your cosy Christmas holiday traditions!
Hopefully you’ve got some new ideas now for treating your little one this holiday season. And don’t forget to bookmark the page – it’ll be their birthday before you know it too!
Love and magic,
The Cats at Banjo HQ x
