You may be wondering when is it acceptable to put the Christmas decorations up? Or maybe, when can you bring out the festive themed toys for your little ones to enjoy?
The simple answer is - NOW!
Little Nutkins' range of natural wooden Christmas and Nativity themed presents and games will be sure to get you in the holiday spirit!
In this week's Gift Guide we have carefully selected our favourite festive items for children, that we know you will love.
Multi Use Gifts & Toys
Wooden toys make the perfect present for the kids in your family, and what better than a festive themed gift that can double as both a toy and a decoration.
All of the items in our Christmas and Nativity edit are top quality, durable, and are designed to last longer than a typical plastic plaything.
A toy from Little Nutkins is a toy for life, and we believe that items from our shop should go on to fulfil another purpose once they have been outgrown. Whether they are passed on to another child in need to reduce waste, or repurposed into something else.
Repurposing Festive Themed Toys
From our top 10 suggested gifts below, you will notice the majority of our wooden toys would make great Christmas ornaments. For example, a nativity scene for the windowsill, or even Santa and his helpers on display on the fireplace to bring something new to your usual festive decorations.
The perfect gift for your little one now, will go on to bring more festive cheer to your home once they have been grown out of in a few years time (as they are long lasting!).
And who says holiday themed gifts can't be played with after the holiday season too?

How To Store Christmas Gifts
Ready to pack away all your fun and festive toys? We suggest to always pack wooden products away from any damp areas in your home to avoid mould, and keep away from direct sunlight to ensure colours do not fade.
Store these items in plastic boxes where air can circulate, you can also use silica gel bags to absorb any moisture that may be in the air.
How Sustainable Are Christmas Toys?
As a customer and consumer of online shopping, you can often feel guilty about all the packaging you may receive from a certain shop or brands. There will be no worries if you shop with us as we use cardboard and paper packaging materials whenever possible. A lot of the packing materials we do use come from the stock deliveries we receive.
So take this as your sign to start buying sustainable gifts, and go plastic free this year!
Don't forget, these holiday themed toys can be reused year-after-year, even if your children have outgrown them!
