Holiday Guide: Mid-Range Gifts
This year we worked extra hard to find truly weird and wonderful gifts that won't break the bank. Here are our selections for the most magical mid-ranged gifts. Enjoy!
Win the prize for the coolest and weirdest-looking gift this year with Geemo. Flexible, magnetic forms allow you to create, well, anything you can imagine. (But note: you might need more than one of the $39.99 packs to really make an impact.)
UK artist Leila McMillan hand crafts these festive mittens from recycled sweaters that have been felted for extra softness and warmth. Adult sizes available too. $20
Look out! Here they come. Zippy kids will enjoy Zipfy's Mini Luge a stylish and thrilling way to fly downhill. $40
None of the other babies will be teething on anything quite like this - and what's more Harold Giraffe is made of easy-clean vinyl. $28 for a pair, also comes in green/pink.
Kitshcycoo makes unique and stunning custom clothing for boys and girls. There's still time to put in your order for the fabric of your choice from their wondrous selection. From £13, will ship worldwide.

Jane Foster creates beautiful screenprints that will enhance any nursery wall. £30 for this owl one; smaller/larger designs are also available.
The kids are going to have to fight me over these Muzo polar animals from Paige Russell. Think how lovely they'd look amongst the greenery on my mantel... when they're not busy being used in pretend play that is.
I just love this sweet little cash register from Carton Chic. It's simple; it's eco-friendly; it's red! Perfect for holiday play and beyond. £12

Sew these up yourself, or give the kit as a gift: Clothkits' apple trousers feature a cheeky core or two. £24, international shipping, but order early to ensure you get them in time.
A pop-up book like no other: this one makes noises as the images emerge. At £19.99, a great one to pass around the family after the big meal.
Yet another wonderful puzzle from Crocodile Creek. This jungle stacking motif is my new favorite!
Ride-on toy, sculpture, art project, the Trojan Horse from Kids on the Roof is certainly a versatile toy, and like all their products, it's just really, really beautiful. $32
