With an almost five year old who likes pretty much everything and a baby on the way (who is luckily due after Christmas), kids gift ideas have been on my mind for a while. Here are a few items that I think the children in your life would love.
One of his big things recently has been trampolines. After visiting our local trampoline park in August and finding an old trampoline in his grandparents garage, he’s been keen to get his own one for our garden. Finding the best trampoline for kids can be tricky but this handy guide is making the work a little easier.
Clothing perhaps isn’t the first thing children expect to find wrapped up under the tree but if they’re anything like me, they will love the new kids range of headwear from Buff. Jack adores his fox knitted polar hat and has already got his eyes on a few other items from the Buff website which I may just have to pick up for Christmas.
If your child loves books, especially books with their name in it, then perhaps you will consider getting them a book from Lost My Name. Priced from £19.99 with free shipping, The Little Boy Or Girl Who Lost Their Name is the UK’s best selling picture book and is a totally unique, personalised gift based on the letters of a child’s name. Suitable for ages 0-8, it makes for a fab gift as they can really immerse themselves in the story – after all, it is all about them.
The books are fantastic quality with a great story and beautiful illustrations. What’s not to love?
If your child is a Lalaloopsy fan, why not pick up this fantastic Lalaloopsy Mini Style & Swap Peanut Big Top (RRP £9.99)? She is picking the perfect costume for her next big show so you’ve got to help her choose the perfect outfit.
The great thing about this is that whilst some people may say it is a ‘girl’s present’, my son absolutely adored playing with it – switching and swapping Peanut’s outfits to make different combinations and has already asked for some more in the range. It is a simple, affordable gift that will keep children entertained for ages. For ages 4+.
If your child (or even an adult in your life) is a big fan of Roald Dahl (like everyone in my household!), then The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl, illustrated by Quentin Blake and available from Carlton Books for £16.99, would make the perfect gift. It is perhaps the only thing I have on my own Christmas list which will be beloved by the whole family.
I’ve recently been introducing Jack to the wonders of Roald Dahl and he even dressed as Charlie Bucket for World Book Day, drew a picture of a golden ticket for his home learning about his favourite book and won’t stop going on about chocolate factories. Its amazing how much Dahl’s legend lives on and let’s hope this continues for a very long time to come.
Warner Bros. has the ultimate selection of films this year and this Scooby Doo boxset (available to buy here) would make a great Christmas gift for the little one in your life. Jack adores Scooby Doo so he’d love these!

These are just a handful of items that you could pick up for the kids in your life this year for Christmas – books, clothing and toys are always popular. What’s on your child’s Christmas list this year?
