Gift Ideas For Dads, Kids & Teens

Christmas holidays are coming and all moms know that it is going to be a very busy time of the year!

With schools closed and children at home our days are full of fun activities and many many chores, dinners to prepare, decorations to do and gifts to wrap. Our loved ones expect Christmas to be a magical time and we love to make it happen but sometimes we forget a gift or two for someone special.

Finding the right gift for kids and adults who, have everything can be even more challenging.  Mothers usually undertake this responsibility and want to ensure that everyone is happy with Santa's presents.   

For this reason we did some research on Etsy and made a selection with the most trending and favorite gifts that will definitely put a smile on the faces of your loved ones.  Plus there is still time to order in time for Christmas!

Gift Ideas For Creative Teens & Kids


Sun printing kit, Cyanotype, starting at Euro 20 on Etsy

For those kids and adults that like to try new ways to express their inner artist, we picked a sun printing kit that can be enjoyed with friends on a sunny day or with UV light on a cloudy day.  Tip: Great activity to do indoors with kids on a rainy.  All kids have to do is find a leaf, flower or detailed shape around the house and with the help of an adult follow the steps to create sun prints also referred to as cyanotypes.

For young make-up artists, who like to take their work with them on a sleepover or a short trip, this personalized make-up brush set will certainly impress them, and their friends.

Kitsugi bio repair kit with food-safe gold, Euro 39.90 on Etsy

Many dads love to repair things around the house, but for those that would like to make their work shine we recommend this Kitsugi repair kit.  Broken porcelain can now become a work of art and a personal statement for the creator.  Kids can be inspired by this activity and understand how a repaired item can have a character of its own and continue being useful.
