Gifts for Kids

by Zoe Robinson

1. In the dog house

One of the largest pet shops in South London, Dr Doolittle’s stocks an impressive array of charming, well-made accessories and toys.  They also stock a variety of little creatures including hamsters, various fish and birds.  We all know pets are not just for Christmas and with so many great toys and treats, your child can learn how to ensure theirs is happy and healthy.

2. The big screen

Nothing beats the cinema experience for young film fans. Did you know you can buy gift vouchers at Streatham Odeon?  Give a bundle of vouchers to your teenager to last the whole year, or add one to your child’s stocking as an exciting treat. Keep up to date on all the latest local releases by visiting the website or popping in to the cinema on the high road.

3. Stocking fillers

Former Streatham residents travel from all over London to visit the Village Card Gift and Balloon Shop, a colourful emporium dedicated to gift-giving. This is the place to go for stocking fillers; balloons, face paints, snow globes and mugs, as well as larger gifts including cuddly toys, Magic Fuzzy Floor Puzzles and Science Kits.
