Christmas Gift Ideas For Children

AD - This post contains PR samples and sponsored links.

We are venturing into December, which means there are less than 4 weeks till Christmas - can you believe it? Keeping with my yearly traditions I've put together a couple of Christmas gift guides. This is the second gift guide of the year - lots of suggestions for the children in your life. All items featured are PR samples, however, they are all products I recommend and will be gifting this year.

I'm kicking the gift guide off with a bang with a product from one of my favourite companies; Learning Resources. The GeoSafari Talking Globe is a show stopper and perfect for learning from home, or for children with a vast interest in the world. The bright colours and functional nature of GeoSafari Jr products encourage children to get outside and explore the world around them. This interactive globe will spark their curiosity as they learn about continents, countries, animals, and nature. The talking globe features the voice of wildlife conservationist, Bindi Irwin. It offers three modes of learning; explore, measure, and quiz. Children simply select their mode of play and touch the Talking Pen to any location on the globe to start learning. This product costs £99.00 and more details can be found on the Learning Resources website.

The Indoor Booma has a flight range of 4-6 metres which allows you to throw and catch indoors whether it be at home, an office, bedroom, park, or gym. It's made from special Memorang foam which means it's completely safe for Booma wars. This retails at around £5.00 and would make a fantastic stocking filler.

Next, we have the UKick is tipped to be the biggest playground craze of the year!. It combines elements of badminton and football and the aim of the game is to keep it off the ground for as long as you can. Use your hands or feet, play alone or with friends. This active, interactive game is set to take the global toy market by storm! UKick is just £8.00 - another idea which won't break the bank.

Wicked Mega Bounce XL – is a biggie, a super-sized sensation. It has an impressive 2.51 metre circumference, it's insanely big! Mega Bounce boasts Wicked bouncability on almost any terrain – even grass and sand! Despite being larger than life, Mega Bounce XL is still incredibly easy to throw and catch thanks to its super grip graphics. This extremely durable MEGA ball is perfect for the beach, park, or playground and comes with a handy foot pump. This will set you back £20.00 and after playing with the kids with it during lockdown I can safely say it's worth every penny!

Frugi is a household name - one beloved nationwide and it's no surprise to why. Their products at bright, happy, funny, with so much variety of organic cotton clothes that will keep children covered from birth and beyond. They also have clothes for maternity, breastfeeding, and cloth nappies too!

  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

  2. Books are the way to go this year - I have bought my daughter the childrens encyclopedia, she is hoovering up facts and knowledge at the moment!

  3. Some great gift ideas with learning through play . I love the blue planet

  4. It is so good to see that there are still some pages that promote reading books and playing indoor games, unlike many other platforms. I provide transcription service in UK, and believe me nothing scares me more than the dependency of this generation on technology. Really inspired by this gift list. Hoping to see such posts in future. Merry Christmas! x

  5. I hadn't seen the GeoSafari Talking Globe, but it looks fantastic!
