The tree is up.
The stockings are hung up ready.
The Nativity is this week!
And the huge list of presents to buy has finally started to be crossed off.
I’m one of those people who much prefers someone to say to me the exact thing they want for Christmas, rather than just a ‘surprise’! A ‘surprise’ is no help at all!
We have lots of children to buy for this year, as well as our own, so I’ve spent some time in the shops and online, trying to find the perfect gift for a range of ages.
Here are my top 6 gifts for any little Princess:
- Frozen Elsa Tame Your Hair Set, H&A £3 ~ I don’t know any little girl who doesn’t love Frozen. A gorgeous little gift box containing a bottle of glitter hair spritz, hair bobbles, glitter hair clips, stick on earrings and a snowflake hair bobble.
- Music Box, John Lewis £8 ~ One of my favourite things as a child -watching the ballerina twirl around to the music. Magic.
- Floral Rocking Horse, brightminds.co.uk £49.99 ~ How beautiful would this look in any little girl’s bedroom or playroom.
- Mould Paint Glitter Fairy, Toysrus £4.99 ~ Create either fridge magnets or badges.
- Disney Princess Perfect Hair Set, H&A £5 ~ a really lovely set of shimmer hair spritz, a glitter comb, hair bobbles and hair clips.
- Inflatable Roller Wheel, tesco direct £34.99 ~ the reviews are very positive, saying that it is very sturdy and lots of fun! Do they do one for adults?!
And my gift ideas for Boys:
- Trophy Ceramic Money Box, Next £8 ~ I think it’s a great idea to encourage children to save money, however young and this fab money box would be ideal in any little boy’s room.
- Desktop Mini Football Table, John Lewis £10 ~my boys (and hubby) would love this! Easy to transport and move around too, which is a bonus.
- Thomas and Friends Colour In Bath Tidy, H&A £5 ~ A lovely gift set that contains a bath tidy to be stuck onto the bath or the tiles. It also contains 3 bath crayons too, which are great for children to use on the bath.
- Ravensburger 100 piece Minions Puzzle, Tesco direct £6.40 ~ my children are Minions mad at the moment, even Lola and this puzzle would be perfect for a rainy winter day.
- Sunshine Wall Light and Animal Wall Sticker, prezzybox.com £19.95 ~ for slightly younger children I love this idea for any bedroom or nursery.
- Lego City Demolition Starter Set, Tesco direct, £8.95 ~ Lego never dates, does it? and this one has a tesco clubcard boost on it at the moment.
So there’s some of my ideas.
We have already brought some of the items featured here.
Now on to the grown ups…. hmm, best getting thinking!
