Christmas Gift Ideas For Children

AD - This post contains PR samples and affiliate links.

Last week, I posted the first in my annual Christmas gift guides; Christmas Stocking Fillers and Festive Treats for Children and Christmas Gift Ideas For Foodies & Festive Tipples. They are both proving to be very popular, so following on from them is my Christmas Gift Ideas for Children. There's so much variety here that I can guarantee there's something or every child.

1. Orchard Toys Pop To The Shops & Magic Spelling - from £7.99
Christmas wouldn't be the same without a couple of games from Orchard Toys - it's become a yearly tradition of ours. We have countless of their games already and the kids play with them almost every day without fail. Pop To The Shops and Magic Spelling are both games that are suitable for Noah's age and are bound to give him a boost when it comes to literacy and numeracy. There is no better way to learn than through play.

2. Children's books from Quarto Kids
- from £4.45
A book makes a great gift, especially at Christmas and even more so when they are Christmas themed. Quarto Kids sent the kids four of their newest releases; The Snowbear, The Story Orchestra: The Nutcracker, Look Up At The Stars, and Greta and The Giants. They are all beautiful books, ones that have a feel-good message, and they are all going to be wrapped and placed under our tree this Christmas.

3. Johnson's Cottontouch Gift Set - £12.00

Fans of Angry Birds will have so much fun with the official Angry Birds Island Challenge slot car racing game.

7. Hape Childrens Wooden Shopping Trolley Cart - £45.00
This wooden shopping trolly from Hape is perfect for children who like to indulge in role-play games. I like the contrast of the natural wood, bright colours, and fabric basket - it's so attractive looking and has a gender-neutral colour scheme too. I'm sure it's the quality that I've come to expect from Hape - their toys are always built to last. It's suitable for children from 3 years of age and measures 42.8 cm x 30 H50.4cm.

No screens, wires, tricky buttons - bedtime and daytime stories have never been so easy. Available in multiple colours, Toniebox is a revelation and bound to please kids and parents alike. Children can listen to childhood classics like The Snowman, or new classics like The Gruffalo buy simply placing tonies figures on top (figures are sold separately.) The Toniebox is also soft to touch, meaning they can be snuggled up to at night, yet they are tough and hard-wearing - great if your children are a bit more rough and tumble. Once the story has ended, Toniebox will turn off automatically. Perfect for at home, and on the go - I can see why it's on many children's Christmas lists' this year.

Which of these items do you like the sound of the most?


  1. Some great ideas here, especially love the Fairy garden, brought one last year, but this one you have reviewed is fab

    1. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again. If you are going through any relationship stress or you want back your Ex or Divorce husband you can contact his whatsapp +2347012841542 or email
