Gift Guide: 2021 edition

By Melissa Thibodeau

We’re back with our very merry Hatley-approved holiday gift ideas for the little ones on your list.

1. Watercolours

This Chroma Blends watercolour set is perfect for beginners. Paired with a watercolour paper pad, it’s a very thoughtful gift for young artists.

2. Dinkum doll and accessories

Dinkum Dolls are so full of love and wonder. Children can snuggle them, dress them, style their hair and they’re also posable!

3. Ostheimer wooden figurine

A picture is worth a thousand words, are they not? Discover the enchanting world of Ostheimer wooden toys, made with love in Germany.

4. Axolotl plushie

This odd but cute little creature is all the rage these days and lucky for everyone, Jellycats makes this adorable plushie. Get one quick! We have a feeling they’ll be hard to find.

5. Playsilks

Playsilks are all about imaginative play and we love Sarah’s Silks huge selection. You’ll be amazed at how your kids will find uses for them as they play.

6. Adventure rug

It’s a rug, it’s a race track, it’s a country road, it’s a city street. It’s actually all of it and Oyoy makes and sells it.

7. Cute tattoos

We love these cute tattoos by Pico. Great for stocking but also great for giving to friends and classmates!

8. Magazine subscription

Looking to offer a different kind of gift this year? We wrote a whole article about this and we included some of our favourite kids’ magazines that you may or may not have heard of.

9. Lava lip gloss kit

Who doesn’t love lava lamps, right? Kids can make 6 lava lip glosses with this kit by Kiss Naturals. Everything you need is included.

10. Teething toys

Gift the baby (babies?) in your life with one of these unique teething toys from Québec-based Bulle. We love their creations.
