Sometimes when we are decorating our little ones' bedrooms we want something to really stand out for them and that has lots of thought go into it. I hope that these special large wall letters fit the bill!
When babies are first born they cannot focus properly, they can find it hard to pick out different shapes and colours and with time they develop the ability to focus. When they are lying in their cots I thought it would be a lovely idea to give babies something beautiful to look at which will help them to develop their site. These letters are large (15cm) and in a bold font so they stand out. They are far from being boring though, they have lots of little details on them which over time your little ones will be able to pick out.
Each letter comes with embellishments to fit a certain theme and they also have little embellishments hanging off them too to make them even more special. There are various themes which we can create for you. Perhaps you want to spell out a name which is all in a fairy theme or maybe anything girlie in general or maybe you want monsters and space for your little boy or we can do neutral designs too with owls and stars...
These are stunning and so enjoyable to make.
They are £4.50 per letter. You can purchase them directly from us in the baby section of our website.

Keeping The Spirit Of Christmas Alive!
Christmas is a very magical time of year and at Calico Gifts we like to keep it that way. Santa’s Magic Key is a relatively new idea and we have designed our very own special version.
We all know that Father Christmas visits good little boys and girls on Christmas Eve and leaves them gifts but how does he enter those houses which don’t have chimneys? And how do we reassure our children who are afraid of people being able to enter the house? Santa’s Magic Key is the answer!
Santa’s magic key can be left beside the front door ready for Santa to use on Christmas Eve. The key can only be used by him because it is magical and so children can rest assured that no cheeky elves can sneak into the house to pinch their presents!
At Calico Gifts we have two versions of the magic key available to buy, both of which are unique to us.
1. Key Cabinet.
Santa’s Key cabinet can come in a variety of colours and costs £10.50. This is a beautifully decorated wooden cabinet which houses a magic key perfectly. It is a perfect decoration to have on display throughout the Christmas season and then the key can be used on Christmas Eve. This is free standing and can be used year after year. It makes a wonderful tradition. We first made this for Christmas 2011 and all of our stock sold out so we are expecting similar this year!
2. Key Plaque.
Santa’s Key Plaque can come in a variety of festive colours and costs £6.50. This plaque can be hung up over the Christmas period showing off it’s festively decorated letters and sparkling key.

This month we have been commissioned to make a plaque for a shop to use. This is the first of it's kind as our previous plaques have been for domestic use only.
The lady of the shop required a handmade sign to go in her window to say when her shop was open or closed. We followed her requirements and had wood cut to shape to suit her and came up with the sign for her.
Earlier this week she received the finished product and was delighted with the results which means a lot to us as we value our customers' opinions immensely.
We hope to do more work of this nature in the future as it's nice to know our work is on display for many people to see.
