The stockings were hung by the chimney with care…
Is there anything more magical than waking up to mince pie crumbs on the fireplace, a half chewed carrot and a stocking full of treats to open in your pyjamas. I can still remember that feeling now, the start of a wonderful day filled with “Carols from the Cathedral”, Grandad cursing the chestnuts, mum’s hair turning to frizz as she stirred the bread sauce with one hand, a sherry in the other, family bursting through the door with armfuls of gifts to be shared. A day of fun, love and laughter and a lot of crazy chaos!
To give the big (wo)man in red a helping hand this Christmas, we have stockings all wrapped up at Crane and Kind. With a focus on thoughtful presents, designed to be enjoyed well beyond Christmas morning (and nothing that needs a battery we promise!) we have hand picked a range of fun gifts for all ages.
For the mini chefs in your house we have a fun range of wooden kitchen pretend play items, aprons and ‘not your usual’ cookie cutters – they can be used for baking, pay-doh or even mud pies in the garden! Smoothie or toast anyone!?
For the littlest members of the family, it is never too early to be introduced to some of the amazing women who have paved the way and shaped the world we live in. We now have fabulous, bright board book sets of Little Feminists, Little Artists and Little Scientists.
And we have searched high and low for fun, soft rattles which are not only perfect to entertain inquisitive babies but look smart enough to grow with your baby and still look stylish in an older child’s bedroom. We have sausage dogs, ice-creams, narwhals and unicorns so the only problem will be choosing one!
Who doesn’t love a crisp winter walk to burn off the Christmas excess…need to encourage small people away from their presents and out for some “fresh air”? These super soft knitted pom pom hats are the answer. With ties for under the chin and a pom pom that pops off they are both practical and stylish.
New to the shop we also have a fabulous range of hair slides from Meri Meri and Rock-a-Hula, sassy and stylish – from flamingos to cherries to ice-cream.
Just a small selection of the lovely things we have to tempt you this Christmas please check out the full range on-line or in our little pink shop.
And finally if you are on the hunt for a new stocking we have just taken delivery of these beautiful stockings from Copenhagen brand Fabelab.
It is so exciting to bring you this first edition in our Christmas Gift Guide blog, from sourcing brands to picking products everything is hand picked, we love everything we sell and we hope you do too.
Now, how old is too old for a stocking…
Love the Crane and Kind family
