#shopindie for children's delights

It’s a prime time to be looking for #childrensgifts with #Halloween and #Christmas coming up. . . and where better to look than #UKGiftAM, the weekend Twitter marketplace of #giftideas from UK indies and creatives.

When the door opened to last weekend’s #kidsgiftsday it was like entering Narnia! A parade of one magical and original gift after another all designed to bring wonder and joy to the young ones.

As always, it feels unfair to pick out just a small sample of the inspiration on show. Be sure to check out the hashtag on Twitter for a great starting point for your #childrens #gifthunting.
