Handmade Christmas Gift Guide 2013: Gifts for little men.

Hi peeps,

Today in our series Cat and I are sharing some ideas of what to give the little men in our lives....Cat may know a thing or two here as she is the mum of two little boys.

Her boys are creative players, puzzle do-ers, collectors and avid readers and our list reflects the kinds of things they love doing.

Gifts for little men

Row 1:
Marble Starter Kit by Flower Press by Flower Press $222 HKD - etsy store here.  My girls received one of these last Christmas and they love playing with it.

Pirate Messenger Bag Satchel for Kids Mee a Bee $193 HKD - store here.  Cat's boys carry their crayons, twigs, leaves, small notebooks, toy cars, planes, trains. compasses, torches and all manner of things in these bags (not all at once!) and they're small enough for them to sling over their shoulders comfortably.  My girls both have a Mee a Bee bag, they are a great size for kids.

Row 2:
Dimple Wheel Cushion by One Pear $326 HKD - madeit store here. (Cat's little boys may be receiving these exact ones for their reading corner)

Handmade soft toy superhero "Edwin" by Tiny Morsels Emporium $175 HKD - etsy store here. Someone better snap this one-of-a-kind up before one of us do!  He's adorable.

DIY Tutorial: Circus Paper City by Made by Joel - free! - blog here. Cat has used a number of Joel's tutorials now and they are all great. You could make a beautifully presented gift by pasting on to thicker card stock and presenting in a lovely tin.

Special offer: As a special offer today Jacqui from Mee a Bee has offered free shipping for anyone who wants to order a bag from her store.  To claim this offer just enter: BELOVERLY at the checkout.

Do you have little boys to buy for this Christmas?
