It can be very tricky to choose gifts for kids, especially if you don’t see them very often. Sometimes all you know about them is a vague concept of something they’re interested in – princesses, cars, dinosaurs or whatever! If you happen to know that they like doing craft projects then this is the perfect place to find some inspiration.
I’ve included kits and gifts of all kinds – but please double-check each product description to make sure it is suitable for the child you are giving it to!
