Buying Christmas gifts for children is so much fun! You can give in to temptation and choose things that you’d secretly like yourself, in the hope that you’ll get a chance to play with them on Christmas day. There are so many thousands of imaginative, magical, intriguing gifts to choose from it can be hard to narrow it down, so the parents on the Kabode team have picked out some of our favourite kids Christmas gifts available this year.
Here at Kabode we believe in buying better, not more, so we have gone on the hunt for gifts with longevity, that are made sustainably and which we think will be loved for many years rather than end up in landfill by the Summer. We hope this gives you some ideas to whisper to Santa!

A kids bedroom is the only space they have to call their own. Give them a room makeover this Christmas and freshen up their space by treating them to a Kabode Duvet Cover Set. Made of 100% organic cotton the bright designs will delight them. Perhaps you could continue the theme with some matching toys and cushions to go in their room?
Wigiwama Teepee Set
Continue the rainbow theme with this luxurious teepee by Wigiwama. It’ll make a super cool hideout, reading nook or just a comfy spot to chill out and have a chat with their best cuddly toys. It comes with a matching mat and cushion cover and is set up in minutes, so they can start playing in there with their new toys on Christmas morning.
Little Dutch Balance Scooter
They’ll be the envy of the playground cruising up on this! This gorgeous retro wooden scooter is so beautifully made, it is definitely one to pass from child to child through the family. Even in years to come the sleek shape and sturdy construction will be admired by kids and grown-ups alike. To be honest, we wish they did an adult-sized version for us!
Plum Toys My First Wooden Playcentre
Ok ok, you might not enjoy building this in the garden on a cold Christmas Eve, but Spring is really not far away and you’ll be glad when your child is begging to play in the garden instead of traipsing to the park again! This fab playcentre is compact but has enough features to make it a base for all sorts of adventures. It has a climbing wall, net, slide and a secret hideaway inside the tent which is only big enough for little people. It’s made from FSC certified wood which means it is long-lasting and ethically sourced.
Uncle Goose Wooden Fossil Blocks
Encourage young palaeontologists with this unusual set of building blocks. They can sort and organise fossils, countries and scientific diagrams. Two sides of each block are debossed, which means you can feel the fossil too, and use the block for stamping or taking crayon rubbings. A unique way to present prehistoric information, these blocks will engage older children as they ask which fossils came from which countries? How many layers of rock are there? And what’s that dinosaur called?
Das Brett Balance Board
The simplest concepts spark the greatest imagination, and that is certainly true of these wooden balance boards. In a time of digital overload, TicToys try to stimulate through the simplicity of design. These boards are made from 11 layers of birch wood and finished by hand to give them a perfect curve and just a little bounce. Children and adults can play on them, using them as a surfboard, a racecar, an indoor sledge, a mountain to climb over, a cave to hide under or simply to exercise. The possibilities are endless and it’s amazing what kids think to do with them.
Manhattan Toy Deep Sea Adventure
Keep toddlers hands and minds busy with this amazing play table. There’s lots to from top to bottom, so they’ll be encouraged to practice standing and moving around it to see all the moving parts and beautiful colours. With beads to chase around wires, gliders, clacking clams, mirrors and more this will be a firm favourite when their little friends come over for a playdate over the coming year.
Toby Tiger Organic Christmas Pyjamas
Make sure going to bed on Christmas Eve is as comfy and cosy as possible with some organic cotton pyjamas. Toby Tiger have these softies with a fun wintry print of penguins and Christmas trees. They are printed with environmentally friendly AZO-free dyes and made of 100% GOTS certified organic cotton.
