Christmas Gift Ideas: Bespoke Children’s Bed linen | Gilly Nicolson


Bespoke Children's Bed linen: The Perfect Christmas Gift Idea for Your Little One

It’s official: Christmas is on its way. And while you may feel it’s a little too early to be thinking about the big day, at Gilly Nicolson, we’re feeling positively festive already. 

With nights drawing in earlier, chill autumn winds descending and decorations itching to be freed from a year sequestered in the hall cupboard, it’s the perfect time to discuss the best unique (and bespoke) Christmas gift ideas guaranteed to kickstart your holiday shopping.

This time, we’re focusing on what to get for your little ones. Whether buying for your own or treating the kids of family or friends, Christmas shopping for tinies, tweens or teens can be challenging. In this blog, we’ll explore why our bespoke children’s bed linen collections are the perfect present to pop under the tree this year. So, let’s get into it.

Bespoke Children's Bed linen: Gorgeous Pieces They’ll Use Again & Again


Ah, kids, they grow up so fast, don’t they? And while we love watching them blossom into the people they’re becoming, their sudden growth spurts and changing tastes can make picking the perfect gifts tricky – especially if you’re buying for children you don’t know as well as your own.

Bespoke bed linen is a surefire way to delight parents and kiddos alike with investment pieces they’ll actually use. Not only are they guaranteed to enjoy them every night, but these unique Christmas gift ideas will stay with them for as long as they have their single beds. Or, for those lucky little ones already languishing in a roomy double – forever! 

At Gilly Nicolson, we create pieces to last a lifetime. That’s why all our children’s bed linen designs are made from crisp, pure cotton for premium quality with maximum durability. With proper care, our bespoke bedlinen collections can be passed down the generations, from your children to theirs.

So, without further ado, let’s explore some of the most popular designs in our children’s bed linen collections.

Little Stars

Our bestselling Little Stars bed linen collection combines contemporary detailing with a simple, statement print for a truly gorgeous design.

Choose between rich red, earthy sage or slate grey ribbon edging lined with tiny star prints – all set into beautifully soft Egyptian cotton sateen and available in either 200 or 400-thread count options. Our Little Star bespoke children’s bedding collection contains duvet covers, top sheets, housewife and oxford pillowcases, and are available individually or can be purchased as a set.

The collection also comes in sizes to fit every bed, from standard single to double, king, super king and even emperor.


Our adorable Soldiers bed linen design is inspired by our founder Gilly Nicolson’s sons – created to bravely march monsters, ghouls and ghosts straight out of your little one’s bedroom! 

Featuring a platoon of tiny red and black soldiers set on a stunning cream-colour ribbon, this collection is made from pure Egyptian cotton sateen and comes in 200 or 400-thread count options as standard. For more choice, select your sheeting colours from white percale, ivory, soft grey or natural sateen – perfect for matching your bedlinen to their room’s decor.

As with our Little Stars collection, our Soldiers bespoke bedding contains duvet covers, top sheets, housewife and oxford pillowcases. These are available individually or can be purchased as a set. Choose from single, double, king, super king or emperor-size.

Corded Stitch

Our Corded Stitch collection is the most popular design in our adults’ offering due to its versatility and ability to create exquisite bedlinen that’s entirely unique for you. 

Featuring one, two or three lines of heavenly stitching in a choice of over 600 colours (don’t believe us? Take a look at our Colour Library for more inspiration), this collection is available in white or ivory sateen and white percale.

As with our other bespoke children’s bedlinen collections, Corded Stitch comes in 200 or 400-thread count options and features pure Egyptian cotton as standard. Choose between single, double, king, super king or emperor-size for the perfect children’s Christmas gift idea.
