Boys Christmas Gift Idea







Personally, I'm not the camping type. But, being the mother of 2 boys I thought these fun sleeping bags and teepee could be a great Christmas present! I thought it would be lots of fun setting something up like this in the garden for a kids sleep-over! The sleeping bags come in adult size as well as child size!

I don't have a camping bone in my body either... but those sleeping bags are super stylish - love! X

Fantastic, and the next is to teach them how to build a fire safely....and make s'mores! Boys love flashlights too. (well men do too!)

That is a cool looking TeePee. Great sleeping bags, like the Deers. Better yet, I like my bed.
That really is a nice Christmas gift for young boys or even a hunter.

These are so fab - I am planning a camping themed party for my 10 year old early next year. Backyard camping.

Thanks

I might have to get my husband one of those teepees!

Very clever. Always looking for ideas for my son. My girls are easy to buy for(they never quit thinking of things they "need.") My son, on the other hand, just coasts through life without any high maintenance needs. As a consequence, he's harder to buy for because he never really asks for anything. Thanks for the idea.

FABULOUS idea!! My boys would have adored this gift when they were younger. The teepee is too cute - not to mention gives them another reason to be outside - nice break for mom!

Very cute- I especially love the first sleeping bag.

Awwwww... a teepee! What a cool idea!!!! Seriously! I think it would be magical specially for kids! I would love to have it outdoors, but since it's already freezing out there, it would be really fun to have it on the basement or even at the playroom. What do you think?

I wish this would still do it for my "little" guy.. great ideas!

BRILLIANT! I'm teaching Pre-school this year, and we've made a teepee out of a gigantic cardboard box in preparation of Thanksgiving. Let me tell you, the little ones ADORE the gigantic teepee. Their imaginations run wild and it has also been a bear cave, a kitchen, a nursery, and a cockpit. It's a magic place. I vote: get the teepee for Christmas and watch the magic begin!

Jane said...

Hi Anna I have often pondered getting a teepee for the children. They love 'sleeping' outside so much. Beautiful sleeping bags too. xoxo

Nice timing on this post Anna, I have been designing a teepee (in my head so far)as an outdoor tent for my two boys for Christmas. Most helpful!
Thank you !

Kelly Green said...

Great suggestions Anna. Unfortunately we are now at the stage where all the boy in our family wants is a bigger motorbike and a moblie phone!!! eeeeeeeek........KG

Debra said...

My son would have loved these when he was a boy - but he is now 37 and a bit too big, he is nearly 2 metres.

What a great idea...they'll have such fun!!

Madeleine said...

I can tell you are really excited for Christmas. Love the teepee idea!

I love the teepee! I have seen a few of these around at the moment and love the fact that they are actually a pretty stylish addition to a home. I might have to get one for my little nephew, a budding little Indian...

That would be the perfect present.

The tee pee is so cute! Our boys often have their lunch on the weekends or rainy days in their little tent and I have always wanted on of those types of tee pees for them. So cool!
We dont camp much either, but the sleeping bags are lovely.

As a Mum of two boys I also think these are gorgeous. I've been meaning to post on your blog for ages and let you know how much I enjoy your lovely inspiration and beautiful interiors. In fact I've used the inspiration to make my own creations - have a look at my blog if you like and I hope you like the cushions.
