Gift Ideas for Kids Christmas 2016

You can't stay in denial, Christmas is creeping around fast so over this week I will be sharing with you all some gift ideas, things I'll be getting for my kids. From stocking fillers to main presents, from toddler to teen I think I have a suggestion for everyone...

Stocking Fillers

For younger children how about these cute toothbrush holders from Dentek (£3.99) which are available from Boots.

For the little baker in the family how about a fantastic baking kit from BKD, these kits come complete with biscuit/cake mix, cookie cutter and all you need to decorate your creations. A great way to fuel their imaginations whilst having something yummy to eat at the end of it too.


For my girls lip balm is always a winner and there are so many to choose from these days. I adore these fab sets from Lip Smacker, their range includes things like Frozen, to fizzy drinks and sweets.

And then there's this fantastic movie inspired set from Hershey's which is available from Claire's, Topshop and Debenhams.

And for boys how about these fun Lego Star Wars key ring lights (£6.99) which can be found at Smyths, I've actually got one for my brother who happens to be 26 so not just for kids either!

My favourite stocking filler has to be the Itty Bitty cuddly toys. With such a wide range to choose from including the ones featured below Hallmark are definitely on trend with these cuties.

Younger Kids

Lego is always a favourite with my children so Lego Duplo is a perfect choice for little hands. How about this Micky & Minnie birthday parade set (£19.99).

Aquabeads are great for little ones who like to get creative. From Finding Dory and Frozen to Toy Story and Hello Kitty, there is a range to suit every child.

Older Kids

I recently reviewed Hatchimals and my daughters adored looking after theirs, I think this will be a firm favourite this year.

And then of course there's Furbys which are back and better than ever, especially with the introduction of a sleep mask to keep them quiet at night.


For teenage girls there is this gorgeous Christmas clutch (£29.99) from Pink Parcel, providing everything needed for the festive period.

Then there is the expensive but very much sought after Xbox One S for those addicted to gaming and You Tube of course!

Book Lovers

If you are looking for a personalised gift then the books from Lost My Name are well worth checking out, just read my review.

Perhaps your children are keen to learn, then the books that come with LeapFrogs LeapStart are the perfect choice.

And for those older children that really do love the written word, perhaps the Wisdom While you Work book from Libbla Kelly would be the ideal choice.

Gifts to Share

You can't go wrong with a big tub of Haribo, especially with them releasing their fantastic Starmixmas for Christmas.

Now every year I buy a new board game for my kids to play with on Christmas day and I've picked two that I think will be entertaining for the whole family.

First up the hilarious Who Tooted? Toilet humour always go down well with my lot.

And there's the latest version of Pie Face, Pie Face Showdown, double the fun and double the mess.

So there we have, there are a few ideas to get you started, pop back tomorrow to see my choices for women.
