Welcome to our virtual Moomin shop, where we show you the best Moomin gifts you can get your hands on at Thunder Egg!
The first Moomin story was written By Tove Jansson a whopping 75 years ago this year, but still to this day people are discovering and falling in love with the Moomin family. The Thunder Egg team is basically a Moomin fan club so here’s our top picks for Moomin gifts this Christmas!
Accessories make the perfect Moomin gift, and we’re not short of bags and purses. We love a quirky handbag, and we’ve got some amazing Moomin bags in stock. We have the House of Disaster book bags, designed to look like real books! Based on Moominvalley stories, these book bags have a front & back cover and the edges are made to look like pages! And If that isn’t cute enough, we have the Moomin house shoulder bag with all your favourite characters in the windows.
There’s only one thing we love more than a thoughtful Christmas gift, and that is a present inside a present! If you’re looking for Moomin gifts to accompany a bag then look no further as we have a range of Moomin purses too! For a gorgeous Moomin gift set – why not get a range of accessories for your loved one? We have the beautiful illustration from ‘The Dangerous Journey’ book on a handbag, purse and cosmetic bag! Ideal for matching gifts or as a really special treat for someone.
We’ve mentioned our Moomin socks before in November’s sock gift guide, but we can’t write about Moomin gifts without showing you these cuties again! First things first: the packaging! We know what you’re thinking, socks wrap your feet so maybe you’re not worried about what wraps the socks, right?. In Moominvalley, gifting is important business and in adorable Moomin style, these socks come in the sweetest gift boxes! They make perfect stocking fillers (yes, socks in stockings!) and we’ve got 6 styles for you to choose from.
We LOVE the relationship between Moomintroll and Snorkmaiden. We’ve got a couple of pairs featuring both these two cuties! We have the pink & red love heart socks if you prefer your feet to match. If you prefer a bit of mismatched sock chaos, these monochrome socks have Moomin on one foot and Snorkmaiden on the other! If you’re buying for the mischievous person in your life, look no further than the Little My Socks (everyone’s favourite trouble maker!)
Perhaps you don’t have a favourite, and you want your Moomin gifts to have the whole gang on there. The House of Disaster Moomin family socks feature Moomin, Moominmama, Moomimpapa, Hattifatteners, Stinky AND Snorkmaiden! They make the perfect Moomin gift if you don’t want to hedge your bets on the recipient’s favourite Moomin character!
Moomin gifts that are eco friendly? Yes please! All the bags in this range of House of Disaster Moomin shoppers were once plastic bottles! We have the Moomin family print shopper and the Little My umbrella print shopper (perfect for the Manchester weather!) Alternatively, we have a Moomin and Snorkmaiden and dangerous journey designs too! These are the ideal Moomin gifts for your eco conscious loved ones this Christmas.
For those of you looking to buy Moomin gifts for the home, we have a selection of Moomin homeware too! This Little My salt and pepper set is completely irresistible and an adorable way to introduce a little bit of Moomin into any home. Our Moomin papercut lightbox also makes a really special gift whether it’s for someone else or for yourself! For more light up Moomin gifts check out this blog.
