2020 has been a, shall we say ‘Funny’ year. With Covid-19 causing significant changes to all of our lives. Children’s mental health and well being has been put high up on the agenda.
With lockdown, children not being able to attend school, changes to routines and not to mention the uncertainty and unpredictability. It’s no wonder that when children returned to school in September, that a ‘recovery curriculum’ was put in place to support children’s mental health and well being.
So I thought that I would put together, with the help and support of some pretty awesome small businesses and Brands, a Children’s Mental Health And Well Being Gift Guide 2020 as a way to help support parents and their children with their mental health and well being.

Happy Confident Me
Having worked with Happy Confident in the past reviewing their journals, I am more than happy to recommend their journals and recently released Feel It cards as a gift for children’s mental health and well being. Through the Journals, children will learn about and practice important life skills such as growth mindset, self-esteem, mindfulness, positive thinking and resilience.
Teen Calm Box
We’ve recently worked with Teen Calm and I think that their monthly subscription boxes would make the idea mental health and well-being gift for any teen.
Young and Mighty Mighty Cards
Young and Mighty Mighty Cards empower children to manage tricky feelings. Activities to promote calm, increase self-compassion and develop emotional literacy.
Mindful Colouring Books
Have you ever had a Stressor? is the first book in the iSpace Wellbeing collection. Designed to help children learn to talk about their thoughts, feelings and worries; it gently teaches them tools and strategies to manage their emotional wellbeing, including who and how to ask for help.
