Unique girl gifts & cool boy gifts from Wicked Uncle

Inside: Why you should use Wicked Uncle for all of your gift buying. With unique girl gifts and cool boy gifts, they have everything you need. Sponsored post.

When it comes to gift buying, I never seem to know what to get that will be age appropriate. That goes for my own children as they get older as well as other people’s children if they aren’t the same age as my own. I always find myself typing ‘gift ideas for X year old girls’ into Google to see if inspiration strikes for the perfect gift. One site always pops up in my search and it never lets me down.

Wicked Uncle source fun, unusual and different presents for children of all ages, taking the guesswork away so that we can find the ideal gift to suit the occasion. They will even wrap the gift so you can send it directly – so easy!

I have bought so many unique gifts from Wicked Uncle over the years, for my own kids and as gifts for their friends. There are just so many great things to choose from and it just saves me so much time having everything laid out according to my needs.

Who are Wicked Uncle?

Wicked Uncle is an award winning gifting website run by a small team in the UK (they also have a US based site if you are reading this from the states). They source gifts that they think will be fun, interesting and unusual – completely different to what you would find elsewhere.

They build and test each gift before adding it to their site to make sure the quality matches up to their standards.

How does the site work?

The site is really well laid out, with the option to filter the results according to interest and/or age. They have gifts for one year olds all the way up to teenage girls and boys of 14 (although they also have a section for 15-105 year olds too!).

Gifts can also be sorted by gender but not because those gifts are specifically for one gender or the other – lots will fall into both categories. It is purely just an optional way for people to filter their search if they want to. Some will only appear in girls and some only in boys, purely based on buying habits from previous purchases.

Once you have set your filters you are met with great gift ideas to suit your needs. You can then sort those according to price too, which is useful if you are sticking to a budget.

They even have their own blog to help with more inspiration, should you need it.

Unique gift ideas

The thing I like about Wicked Uncle is that it doesn’t just sell toys. While toys are great (and they have plenty of those too), sometimes it is great to be given the option of buying useful gifts or something more educational.


Here are some of my favourites that caught my eye when looking for my 10-year-old girl. I didn’t sort the gifts according to gender as she has a wide range of interests that would sit across both categories.

A twist on a night light – the jellyfish colour changing mood light. Perfect for a tween room!

Bath bombs make a great gift idea and this panda bath bomb set is super cute & made with pure essential oils – perfect for a young lady.
