A guide to the best Christmas 2021 gifts for kids

This is not breaking news, definitely not a surprise, surely you knew it would happen sooner than later: Christmas is coming!

It feels like we haven't really celebrated this day in almost two years and the uncertainty of the 2021's happening had been looming over us for quite some time. Despite some restrictions being back in place, we're not going to miss the opportunity to gather in this fantastic holiday and do our worse to ransack every shop for Christmas presents.

But children come first as usual! And it's never easy to figure out what the best gift for them is, right? Some like cars, puzzles, dolls; others like to draw and need a new set of crayons, pencils, markers all the time. It mostly depends on their age range and what they're most into. So here’s a couple of Christmas gifts ideas for kids.

Are they passionate about football, cooking, aeroplanes or what? That's your starting point right there!

At each stage of their life, children always show an inclination to and interest in a specific sport, activity, game, they’re likely to pursue throughout their younger and sometimes even teenage years. Their childhood passions often tend to turn into something they’ll carry on doing for the rest of their life and there’s no surprise if they end up making a living out of it.

Be it becoming a rugby player, a Safari explorer to the likes of Indiana Jones, the fastest Formula 1 driver, a famous book writer or an actual astronaut, their way is open to millions of possibilities. That’s why they need to have all the possible opportunities to gain knowledge through playing, to cuddle that soft teddy that will make them develop a love for animals, hop on that fantastic ride-on carrier wanting to pedal the distance, messing up with crayons whilst cultivating a flair for art and we could go on and on. 

We have proof of that when children enter our showroom. The way they explore items, toys, even accessories, the way they draw happiness from them, how they inspect the designs, the illustrations, the artwork and get acquainted with our soft toys of all sizes! 

Christmas is that time of the year when everyone, parents, godparents and grandparents are in that giving mood and the children of our families take joy in unveiling surprises of the day. Joy sparkles on their faces, excitement pushes them from the inside and we at Dragons love being the number one destination for creating those Christmas morning moments. This year, unlike no other, our showroom has been charmed with goodies that are definite contenders for placing under the tree. We call it the toy emporium ready for you to walk away brimming with bags. 

So what are you going to get for your child this Christmas?

The multitude of gifts and how to make a choice

Give this Christmas a loving feel with personalised gifts your child will love from the beginning and treasure for the years to come. 

Here at Dragons of Walton Street, we're all about unique Christmas gifts for kids you can fully customise with your choice of artwork, trim colour and brush finish. But it doesn't stop there. Depending on the item you select, you can also personalise our pieces with your child's initial, full name and date of birth.

Among the best Christmas gifts for kids, our collections of personalised gifts and toys are more than just presents for children. These pieces will turn into true heirlooms and will stay in your family for generations while maintaining their initial charm and hand-craft beauty.

One of the reasons our clientele are so loyal to us is because they share our passion for storytelling. Characters devised in-house and those that come from classic tales is something parents love to surround their child with especially with them being hand-painted, skillfully by our talented artists. 

One brand we’ve been working with for years is Playforever. They do pretty awesome toy cars drawing inspiration from iconic vintage racing cars. The great thing about them is that they are hand-made in the UK. The best thing about them is they’re personalised by us. Our team of artists in Sussex paint either the initials or if we ask them really nicely, they’ll paint the full name! When you want a Playforever car super quick our artist in London can paint as fast as you can say vroooooom.
