So it is that time of year again, and it has become something of an annual tradition to offer up a creative Christmas gift guide here each year. This year I will be selecting items mainly from the Artful Kids Mini Christmas Pop-Up Shop, and also from the Artful Kids Amazon Affiliate Store (from which I earn a small commission on each purchase). It’s a somewhat eclectic mix, from low-cost stocking fillers, to heirloom toys, from inspirational art materials suitable for all ages, to items specifically suitable for younger children. I hope you enjoy browsing the selection as much as I have enjoyed putting it together! Remember these are just specially selected highlights, and if you need more ideas there’s more to see in the Artful Kids stores listed above.
