Christmas Gift Guide for kids

Christmas Gift Guide For The Kids

It is that time of year when the Christmas music starts to play in the shops and shelves are piled high with everything you can possibly think of! I always struggle to think of things to buy the girls and they are never much help as they just want everything! 

I have found a few different things to share with you, some that the girls have been lucky enough to test out already and some that are going to be a surprise on Christmas day. Hopefully you’ll get some inspiration for your little ones.

Sylvanian country cottage

Belinda Sylvanian

Sylvanian Families Cosy Cottage – RRP £19.99

Did you love Sylvanian Families as a child? I did and I have actually still got them all up in my mum’s loft. The girls don’t know it yet but as well as this lovely cottage, they are also going to get some of my old bits and bobs. I am quite excited to play with them again myself actually! The girls have been eyeing up the cottage for ages and I love the fact that it comes with everything you need to get started.

My Doodles Action Cam

My Doodles Action Camera Bundle – RRP £60

I love taking photos and the girls have taken a real interest in photography too. This camera is brilliant as it can take photos but comes with everything you need to take it on an video adventure too! We have been playing around with it and I am really impressed with the film quality.

Georgie Interactive Puppy

Georgie Interactive Puppy – RRP £99.99

Isn’t he cute? If you don’t fancy having a real puppy in the house then he is the perfect alternative. He responds to 12 voice commands and has over 100 different responses. He comes with a bandana and rope toy, with his packaging doubling up as a carry case too.

girls in the little tikes kitchen

Little Tikes Cook ‘n’ Learn Smart Kitchen – RRP £149.99

I am a big fan of imaginative play and this kitchen is brilliant. Not only does it allow free play with all of the accessories but it also connects to your tablet/ smartphone to encourage learning through various games. As kitchens go, this one is one of the best I have seen.

Animal Jam

Animal Jam Adopt A Pet Accessories – Various Prices

Have you heard of Animal Jam? It is a free app for your phone/ tablet which allows you to create your own pet to walk through the animated 3D world. You can now buy accessories to play with offline too. Each toy comes with a code which gives you bonus features for the app. Great mix of real and digital play and the girls love playing with both.

Frozen holdall

Frozen makeup bag

Frozen Adventure Seeker Beauty Duffel – £9.99 From Lloyds Pharmacy

I always loved putting on my mum’s makeup when I was little and my girls are just the same. This cute little duffel bag comes with lots of bits and bobs, including lip gloss and hair clips – perfect for playing dress up.

Upsy Daisy Backpack

Upsy Daisy Backpack – RRP £9

Do you have a little one starting pre-school or nursery in January? This cute little backpack is perfect for carrying everything they need every day.

LJ and W in teepee

Teepee From myweeteepee – £149.99

Do your kids love to make dens? The teepees from myweeteepee are absolutely gorgeous and can be used for so many things, from a cosy reading area to a picnic hideaway.

Personalised Poster

Personalised Alphabet Poster from Lost My Name – from £12.99

I adore the Lost My Name books and the characters in the stories so when I saw this personalised poster I knew it would be perfect for Will’s nursery. Isn’t it lovely? You can write your own words at the top too, making it even more special.

sleep tight all night unicorn

Sleep Tight All Night Unicorn – £29.99

If your little ones like to tiptoe along the landing at an unearthly hour then these unicorns are definitely the answer to your prayers! You can get other characters in the Sleep Tight All Night range too – a puppy, a bear or Iggle Piggle being the other choices.

Forever Friends

Forever Friends Baby Gifts – various prices

If you are looking for a gift idea for a baby then Forever Friends have brought out the cutest range of toys for little ones. We have a snuggle blankie, which Will loves to cuddle and the Bedtime Lightshow Bear and Sweet Dreams Bear as shown above. Both of those can be personalised with a photo of your choice so your baby can see a familiar face – I love that!

    Thank you Katy this is so good for me. Our girls are similar ages and I needed some inspiration for Christmas. I love that camera, Alice is really wanting to take photos like me. You reminded me I have a lost your name book for Alice, but not for Holly. X
