As Prince George celebrates his first birthday, here’s our guide to some quintessential British gifts – perfect for the third in line to the throne…
Jaques of London is the world’s oldest traditional toymaker. The Jaques family is responsible for creating some of the best British games, such as croquet, Ping Pong, Snap and ‘Tiddledy Winks’ (now known as Tiddlywinks). This charming Skittles set is an outdoor favourite, and the Royal Guard theme will help young George feel right at home.
This charming teddy bear called Fortescue is made from soft mohair and is delivered to you in a beautiful monogrammed wicker hamper. The classic teddy bear is handmade in England and is a great gift for a young prince.
The Royal Mint has produced a commemorative coin to mark the first birthday of the prince. The £5 coin features a rare heraldic Royal Arms design, which was first created for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and has only been used once since, for the British Exhibition in New York in 1960. Just 7,500 coins have been created for the prince’s first birthday – they’ll make a fantastic keepsake.
Britain’s largest department store, Harrods, is bursting with presents for a future prince. Its toy kingdom will see you through many a birthday but this red velour outfit with faux ermin fur and a crown by Travis Designs will be a fun gift for our (possible) future king.
