Have you started your Christmas shopping yet or have you got a habit of leaving it to the last minute? I’ve put together a few ideas to help you if you’re stuck on what to buy the kids this Christmas.
Wooden Kitchen – the best and longest lasting present I have ever bought for my girls would definitely be their wooden kitchen. They play with it every single day and never get bored, all of their cousins absolutely love it when they come to play and it is still in great condition 2 years after buying it. We got ours from Wayfair but there are some amazing offers on at the minute. Aldi, Asda & Studio seem to have the best deals so its worth having a look.
Wooden Trolley – I have wanted to buy the girls a wooden trolley for the longest time but was always put off by the hefty price tag. I saw a lovely wooden trolley online but it was £55 and I just couldn’t justify it, when I saw that Aldi had a dupe for just £16.99 I snapped it up straight away. This, alongside the Wooden Grocery Set and the Wooden Till would make an amazing gift for a child that loves role play and playing shops.
Playdoh Picnic Adventure – Playdoh is always a winner in my opinion especially for rainy day activities. Not only is it an affordable gift, its something that the kids will love. This is from Argos, they have some great deals on at the minute with a new discount code being released weekly.
My First Toddler Doll Rapunzel – I absolutely love these princess dolls, they would make a great main gift for a daughter or niece perhaps. They range between £15-20 and they are quite big in size. Available in Smyths Toys, Very and Argos.
FurReal Munchin Rex – I have seen these everywhere and love the look of them, they are interactive and when the kids wave at him or feed him he responds with over 35 sounds and motions. He also hops and begs for treats and then pretends to chomp on them which I think is cool. The cheapest I’ve found is from Smyths Toys.
Buzz light year – Do we have any toy story 4 fans here? I have seen so many good offers on toy story toys this month, looking particularly in Argos and Asda. Asda currently have the talking buzz on offer for £30 and I have seen the full set on Argos for £45 but with the new weekly discount codes you may be able to get it cheaper.
Lumies – I absolutely love these, they are colour changing interactive soft toys. If you touch something that is pink, the Lumies will turn pink, if you touch something that is blue, it will turn blue etc. These are £15 from Argos and would make such a great gift.
The Night Before Christmas Book – a personalised book is always a lovely gift idea if you are stuck on what to get someone. I love anything that is personalised and think things like this make great keepsakes. You can get 20% off using code: XMAS20
Orchard Toys Match & Spell – Another great gift for a toddler learning new things and usually priced at around just five pounds which I think is amazing. These would be good for stocking fillers, your childrens friends, or as a little gift for your niece or nephew. Orchard toys are amazing and have a whole range suitable for all different ages.
Shark Attack cars – Do you have a child that loves cars? This little set would make a great little gift, you connect the track together and then shoot the cars down the ramp through the sharks mouth. It comes with 3 cars and encourages imaginative play.
PJ masks cars – Do you have a PJ masks fan? My 3 year old absolutely loves it. I managed to get a couple of the cars in the Sainsburys toy sale back in October but have seen them on sale in Argos and on Amazon for great prices.
Baff Bombz – Another fab stocking filler idea! I seem to have an obsession with the Zimpli Kids range, they do child friendly bath bombs, emoji bath bombs, gelli bath & slime, gelli snow etc and also have a Ryans World range that has recently been launched. You can buy a lot of it from Amazon for really reasonable prices and also from PoundToy.
Blume Doll – I’ve seen these on the milkshake adverts and my 3 year old has pointed them out a few times. They are surpise dolls that you water and then watch them grow. The kids will go crazy for these, they would make great stocking fillers. Available from The Entertainer with 20% off making them currently £8 each.
Cadburys Money Box – You can’t really go wrong with chocolate buttons and a money box can you? This would make a great stocking filler or you could put it in your child’s Christmas eve box if you do them. You can get these in Tescos and Sainsburys for £3.
