Put your feet up and have a look at this Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for kids There are wooden toys, something to read, gifts for tween boys, stocking fillers, toddler gifts, stationary lovers ideas, and sweets! Not a screen in sight!
Wooden toys are a lovely gift idea. For a personalised gift head to Etsy and get your own family of wooden dolls in their own little bag. You can even choose each persons colour. A Grimm’s rainbow provides hours of imaginary fun and the Wooden Rainbow Sound Blocks last for years.
You can never have too many Christmas books in my opinion. From a touchy, feely for toddlers like That’s Not My Snowman Through to beautiful fiction books like A Boy Called Christmas for older children. For something different why not get them a comic subscription. The Phoenix comic is delivered to your door weekly, suitable for boys and girls ages 6-12, it’s a great gift to encourage reading.
For a non fiction book I love Create Your Own Happy, an illustrated activity book that empowers children to shape their lives, and the lives of others around them, by taking practical, positive steps towards their own happiness and positive self esteem!
Tweens can be difficult to buy for when all they are asking for are big ticket items, particularly boys. So here is a little selection of smaller, screen free gift ideas for them.
A pair of gaming headphones that can also be used to listen to their music like these TX-40 Gioteck ones. Instead of a shower gel set, how about some from Lush that are better for the environment and cruelty free too. Bring their love of gaming away from the computer screens with this How to Draw Fortnite
Christmas isn’t complete without family games and this Fun Mince Spies Dinner Party Coast Game is a fab one to involve all the family.
Smiggle have so many gift options, but tweens will love this skate, scoot, ride set.
And for those that really want a new game, The Pokemon Lets Go Pikachu Nintendo Switch Game with Pokeball is a great way to keep them active whilst playing and brings to life the popular game.
Stocking fillers are so much fun to find. I have a great selection here of this years most popular, including,
For stationary lovers The Science Museum Shop have some lovely gifts, including this unique Quentin Blake canvas bag and stationary items.
For an eco friendly stationary gift, how about theseGREENcolors from Stabilo. Smiggle have these fab scented gel pens, which I might steal off the kids.
A Scratch Magic Note Cubes is another lovely unique gift idea for both younger and older kids.
For toddlers I love the Lumie Bedbug, promoting your child’s natural sleep response.
This Ergo Pouch sleep suit bag is made from breathable natural fibres, organic cotton is soft on baby’s skin and the bag is from 2-4.
Or how cute is this Dobbie Reindeer from Dobbies! I can imagine this poking out from the sack to greet an excited toddler on Christmas morning.
Or you could get them a Kiddimoto three wheeled U-Zoom scooter. With their funky designs and flashing wheels you are sure to find one that is perfect for your little one. They are easy to transport with a folding handle and great for coordination development, Suitable for ages 3-5.
Christmas means chocolate but Swizzles sweets are a great addition and are also good for vegetarians and those who can’t have dairy. I know Ava will be so excited to receive a box of squishes, her favourite, this Christmas!
