Now it is officially December... Time to finish off your Shopping!
Little ones can be tricky to buy for, especially Nieces and Nephews!
I am struggling so much with mine, i've had some great ideas from other Gift Guides luckily!
So here is our Children's Gift Guide for this year, all these things have been tried and tested by my own children and they only make it onto here if we really love them and 100 per cent recommend to you!
Lets start with the little nippers.....
1 - 4 Years
Leaping Letters from Leap Frog
This is a fantastic game for children aged 3 years and over. Race against the clock to fit all the letters into the slots. Play with a friend or alone. This game is fun and educational. My 3 year old loves it and he is starting to recognise some letters in the alphabet already!
Priced £14.99 from Smyths
Little Tykes Activity Tree House
Little ones aged 9 months plus can explore colours, sounds, shapes and be encouraged to crawl with the Light and Go Activity House. See the lights reflecting, the cheeky monkey swinging, do some shape sorting or go for a crawl under the Giraffe arch, open and Close the gate. There's so much for babies to do! This activity toy will keep baby busy on Christmas morning for sure!!
Priced £89.99 at Argos
The Basil Multi play House
For those with a bigger budget and plenty of Garden space, how about giving your little ones their very own little world with a wooden Play house like this? There are plenty of different style Play Houses available from Forest Garden Online. The best thing is these houses come unpainted, so you can have them any colour you like!
This house is 175 x 257 x 147 making it very large! There is plenty of play space for 3 children up to the age of 8 or 9 years (my older daughter is 9 and she loves playing in this house!) it is made from good quality tongue and groove with rounded corners and a smooth safe finish, includes 1 fitted window. All the playhouses from this website are pressure treated with 15 years anti rot guarantee. That's quite a lot of play value!!
We absolutely LOVE this playhouse and 100% recommend it to anybody thinking of buying a large playhouse for their children this Christmas.
The Wizard of Oz Itty Bitty's by Hallmark
These teeny tiny itty bitty characters are full of cuteness. There are so many to collect but my favourite is the Wizard of Oz Collection!
They would make a great gift for any young fan. The superhero ones are also really great, we had those last year and the children loved them!
Available from Hallmark priced £5.99
Big 4 - Giant Garden Game
This gift will make a very interesting shape! As we are having such a lovely mild Winter this Giant wooden game is perfect for encouraging the Family to spend some time together outdoors. We are hoping to have a game with all of our family and friends on Boxing Day!
Available from Big Game Hunters priced £140 - smaller version available.
Lightening Mcqueen Remote Control Car from Disney store
All little Lightening Mcqueen fans will have so much fun racing this car around the living room on Christmas morning! With it's easy to use remote control it's the ideal gift for young racing fans. My 3 year old boy loves it and finds it easy to control. A lovely bright and very fun toy, highly recommended!
For the slightly more grown up ones.......
5 - 10 Years
Bic Kids - Alvin Colouring Activity Set
We all have a very arty one in the family, this large colouring activity set is ideal for girls and boys who love nothing more than colouring. With 80 pieces it is sure to keep them busy for the whole Christmas term!
It comes in a large square box which would make a great present shape!! My girls aged 6 and 9 love sharing this activity set.
Available from Tesco priced £22.00
Smiggle Pals Pencil Case
My girls are craft crazy, they can never have too many cute pencil cases. They went nuts for this cute pencil case from Smiggle. I wouldn't imagine any boys going for this, so if it's girls aged between 5 and 10 that you're looking to buy for and you know they like to colour, maybe one of these pencil cases filled with some lovely scented pencils from Smiggle Online will be just what you're after for them?
Available online priced £11.50
Finding Dory Aquabeads
This is our second Aquabeads set. At first I didn't understand it at all... but now i get it! It's a lot more simple than it looks, trust me!!
All you need is water to make fabulous creations. Girls from age 6 absolutely love creating their own little pieces of Art. Aquabeads lets them do just that. I think this one will be a very popular gift this Christmas!
Available from Toys R Us priced £19.99
