Enjoying an earth-friendly Christmas

At Castles for Rascals, we take great care to source unique, high-quality items that are ethically produced, so you can rest assured that any gift you choose from our range will truly bring joy to the world!

Here are four great pressies for less than £30!

For baby’s first Christmas, how about a beautiful mobile to hang above the cot? Our Bunny Rabbit mobile is perfect for newborns with its high-contrast grey and white colour scheme, or our Hot Air Balloons mobile can add a splash of cheery colour to any room.

For older children, our large and small Mr Robot cushions are fun and cuddly, and great for imaginative play. Our Three Little Pigs bookends would delight little story-lovers and help to keep books neat and tidy.

We also have lots of storage solutions for little ones to keep all their new treasures safe and organised; this King Kong tall storage box is practical yet fun, too.

Christmas shopping can be a daunting prospect when you consider the ethical impact of your choices, but by choosing small, ethical businesses and local suppliers, you can shop away in the knowledge that you are making a positive contribution.

Christmas is also the perfect time to get crafty as the cold weather drives us indoors to huddle in the warmth. Craft activities are the perfect way to keep little hands occupied and even the loveliest shop-bought decorations can’t compete with our kids’ unique creations, made with love and lots of sticky glue!

Paper chains are pretty and fun to make for all ages; try cutting colourful magazine pages and old wrapping paper into strips or even using old carol song sheets! If your kids love collecting pine cones, you could use them to make these adorable little mouse decorations together, or some festive angels for the tree. Or you could create a beautiful tied willow twig star as a decoration for your home or as a gift for someone else.

Competition Time!

If you’ve been inspired by these ideas to create some craft projects of your own using natural materials, post a photo of your creations to us on our Instagram or Twitter page by 15th December for a chance to win one of five sets of these beautiful Mimi Lou Christmas Tree wall stickers (winners will be announced on Instagram and Twitter w/c 18th December).

However you choose to celebrate, we wish you and your family a peaceful, joyful and beautiful Christmas.
