Some children are naturally attuned to the world of fashion from a very young age, and if you are lucky enough to be the parent to a youngster who is undeniably style-conscious, then there are a surprising number of cool and kooky gift options to consider for their next birthday.
Of course, even if you are the one who wants to kit out your kid in a dapper way, the right gift can still put a smile on their face, so here are just a few top options to consider adding to your basket this year.
Versace Barocco Teddy Bear
Formidable fashion house Versace has a whole lineup of child-focused products to pick between, and if your little one is still of an age to play with stuffed toys, then the Barocco teddy bear from this brand will be ideal.
The design of the bear is unmistakable, with the usual fur instead replaced with white and gold printed fabric, and the Versace brand name displayed proudly on a label on one foot. It is still squeezable and huggable, but it is also significantly more stylish than any other teddy you might find in your average toy store.
Gucci Kids Children’s GG Supreme Backpack
If you thought Versace’s range of children’s products was extensive, you will be wowed by the equivalent offerings from Gucci. There are belts, shawls, headbands and so much more besides, but the pick of the litter is this backpack.
Printed with the iconic GG logo and featuring plenty of space inside for school books or any other items a child might need to haul around with them, it is also surprisingly sustainable, having been made with all-natural materials in Italy, rather than using anything synthetic.
DKNY Kids Belt Bag
Chances are your child already has a backpack, in which case perhaps they’d be better off with a more compact and yet still seriously stylish portable storage option in the form of this belt bag from DKNY.
It can either be worn around the waist or slung over the shoulder, and gives them a place to keep drinks, snacks and whatever other tidbits they might need for a day out. The adjustability of the strap also means they can keep using it for years to come, so it will be a gift that keeps on giving.
Burberry Argyle Intarsia Beret
The old school charms of this British fashion brand are not just available for adults, but also come in kids sizes, as evidenced by this saucy beret that is available for children aged between 6 and 12 years.
A couple of color combos can be chosen, with both featuring the use of fine cashmere and sporting a cute and quirky bobble on top. If your child’s birthday is during the colder months of the year, this warming beret will be greatly appreciated!
Fendi Kids Bucket Hat
Bucket hats were all the rage back in the 1990s and as fashion is cyclical, their time has very much come again. While you might not be comfortable trying to pull off this look as a parent, they are perfect for kids who want to make a statement, and this Fendi branded example is definitely more interesting than most of the others on the market at the moment.
Aside from being very on-trend right now, the other benefit of a designer bucket hat as a gift for your kid is that it will keep the sun out of their eyes and away from their sensitive skin, so it has practical advantages as well.
