STOCKING FILLERS: Little Boys & Girls

message from santa telegram

It can be tough to know what to buy the little ones in your life, especially those turning into teenagers before your very eyes. The advent of of iPads and games consoles can make it seem like childhood is becoming a long forgotten concept, but here at FashionBite we still believe in good old fashioned fun at Christmas. From drawing sets to candle making kits, we’ve picked a few of our favourite stocking fillers on the market this year, and not a touch screen or headset in sight…

1. 3D Doodle Kit, £5, Science Museum Shop,

Keep this nifty little kit handy at the table during Christmas dinner – perfect for kids who get bored easily. Once the plates have been cleared away, younger children will love drawing festive pictures that come to life with 3D glasses. Something tells us Granny will be impressed, too.


2. Astronaut Ice Cream, £5, The Great Gift Company,

An imaginative gift for little explorers, children will love the fact that this freeze dried ice cream is the exact same eaten by astronauts. Pass around the rations and set off a lunar adventure, even if it is only around the garden in a puffa jacket and moon boots. Genuinely tastes good, too.

3. Candlemaking Craft Kit. £13.95, Prezzy Box,

The genius of this Candlemaking Craft Kit lies in the fact that it comes with everything you need to make up to 12 candles. The perfect gift for craft lovers both experienced and novice.

4. CorkBoard World Map, £25, The Great Gift Company,

For kids who love to see and do, this cork board wall map is ideal. Cover with photographs and mementos from your holidays around the world, or mark out the next places on their wish list. Looks great on its own, too.

5. Message From Santa Telegram, £12, Imperial Telgrams,

message from santa telegraph

If the idea of getting the little ones in your life to tweet Santa (yep, it’s happened) doesn’t quite do it for you, this old school telegram just might. These magical messages from Santa and Rudolf are guaranteed to charm the socks off them – and make sure they go to bed on time, with any luck.
