My kid’s are already so excited for Christmas as I write this post! They have both started writing Christmas lists and searching through catalogues circling what they would like, just like me. I have kids in quite a wide age range of almost 2 to 7 years old but my girls both play with similar things now and my little man isn’t getting that much anyway! He’s still at that age where he doesn’t understand and can be completely happy with one toy. Plus I know he will be well into anything the girls get and I’m expecting a few tantrums on Christmas morning. So my kid’s gift ideas for Christmas this year is quite a mix to suit them all.
So without further ado, here are some lovely ideas for the kids and I’m pretty excited to see their faces for some of these on Christmas Day!

For My 2 Year Old
Now I feel a bit mean as he’s only got a couple of things in this guide BUT this reflects what he will be receiving. As he’s only 2, too much means he is just completely overwhelmed!!
Super Wings World Aircraft
I knew my little man would love the Super Wings World Aircraft. It is aimed at children aged 3 years and over but I know this won’t matter. It currently retails at £29.99 and is available from Smyths Toys.

I know my little man will be so excited to get his hands on this come Christmas morning.
Cat Junior Crew Construction Vehicles
My little man is a huge fan of anything the moves; so cars, buses, diggers…you name it he loves it. Earlier on we got to review some fabulous vehicles from the Cat Junior Crew Construction Range. You can read the full review here.
All are aimed at children aged 2 years and over. All the products make the unique Kid-Vroom Sounds™ and sound like your child is making them! They are also designed to boost your child’s curiosity, develop their fine motor skills and help them to learn about cause and effect!
We were sent 3 items from the range, including the Power Track and the Construction Buddies Dump Truck and both were such fun. I can’t wait for my little man to have this Christmas.
For My 4 Year Old
Stickman Tonie for Tonie-Box
A Toniebox is an audio player that allows children to listen to both music, factual content and stories. Perfect for lovely screen-free story-telling this Christmas. You play different Tonies on top of your Toniebox and it recognises who is standing on top and downloads the story from the Toniecloud. The Toniebox will turn solid green on top and your story will have fully downloaded and is ready to play anywhere, without Wi-Fi. connection! This would be perfect for the car, travelling or simply in a place without Wi-Fi.
We were lucky this year to receive a Stick Man Tonie to put on top of our box! Tonies usually retail at £14.99 and can be found online or in John Lewis.
Christmas Puzzle from Jaques
My middley is quite a jigsaw lover and I thought this Christmas Day puzzle from Jaques would be perfect for her Christmas Eve box this year.
It’s 50 pieces which is perfect for her at 4 years old and is a great price currently at £5.99.
The image is bright and beautiful and is made from top grade jigsaw cardboard.
Asda Matching Pairs
My middley loves a game of matching pairs. It is one of her fave games to play and she does have a kit. However, when I was offered a set using personalised photographs from Asda Photo, I knew she would love that.
The pairs game retails at £15 and you get 25 pairs and each card size: 2×2.5″ (5×6.5cm). It’s really cool seeing all your mini photos and will be great fun matching them up.
Asda Photo offer a wide range of gift ideas including personalised jigsaws, keyring, money boxes and glitter domes, so check out for sure!
Og, by Joanne Hutchinson
My girls both love a bedtime story. My eldest still enjoys and will then go and do a bit of her own reading afterwards. So I knew a story would be lovely for their Christmas presents.
We were kindly sent Og, by Joanne Hutchinson.
Capture the magic of story time with Og, and discover what happens when an Ogre’s enchanting love of books takes him on an adventure, where he becomes the hero in the most unexpected way. The book is beautifully illustrated and written in rhyme.
‘Og’ by Joanne Hutchinson retails at £6.99 and is available to buy from Amazon, Waterstones and www.joannehutchinson.co.uk
It’s Your Story
To now combining the two above ideas into one – a personalised story book, which I know my middley will absolutely love.
It’s Your Story creates personalised books for children and they include their name, their photo and personal details about where they live and their friends. We chose the snowman story, perfect for Christmas.
This was very easy to create! Here are some more details as online:
- Personalisation: The child’s name, first line of address, town/village where they live and the name of a friend is included in the story. A personal message from the sender to the child is included at the front of the book.
- Quality: 32-page perfect-bound book with full-colour gloss cover.
- Size: 21 x 28 cm
- Binding: Available in paperback (£19.50) or hardback (£22.00)
You can see on the image below I’ve taken my daughter’s name off, as don’t share on the blog but would normally say (your child’s Snowman).
Peter Rabbit Pillow from Enseco
My middley in particular is quite a fan of Peter Rabbit. She has some card games she loves and of course loves the story.
Both my girls are also huge pillow and cushions fans; in fact anything that you can snuggle up with. They are real creatures of comfort. I knew a gorgeous Peter Rabbit Cushion from Enesco. This cushion is covered in a super-soft velvet like fabric, making them extremely tactile and snuggly, perfect for my kids. Completed with intricate embroidery and applique detail, this Peter Rabbit Cushion shows the famous rabbit wearing his iconic blue jacket. It’s lovely! Currently retailing at £15, I know my daughter will love.
Enesco have a lovely range of gifts, including their Beatrix Potter range.
For My 7 Year Old
Present Pets from Spinmaster
We love getting to review new products in the build up to Christmas and this year was no exception with the amazing Present Pets. You can check out our full review here.

I’m dying for the kids to have a go with these!

Haribo Sweet Medley
My girls are both huge fans of Haribo and I think Christmas isn’t Christmas without a Haribo gift! However, I’d have to say my eldest loves her sweets more! This amazing HARIBO Sweet Medley would really suit a die hard Haribo fan like her!
Perfect for sharing amongst friends and family (I’ll be giving to both girls), this gift includes a handy tray to offer out a delicious mix of sweets including Starmix, Tangfastics, Supermix, Giant Strawbs, Jelly Babies Double Trouble and Jelly Beans. I know my girls will be dying to open it on Christmas morning!

My eldest has been after a fitness tracker for a while, so I was thrilled she was sent the Fourfit Mini 2 kids fitness tracker. This retails at £24.99. It is aimed at kids who are aged 10 years and over but I’m sure my eldest will use some of the features.

The Danger Gang by Tom Fletcher
My eldest has really got into reading over the last few months, which is great! She was pretty hard work previously but she has found an author she loves and is plugging through their books nightly!
My aim now is to get her into some different stories and this fab story – the Danger Gang by Tom Fletcher is going to be a must for her reading list. Retailing at £6 and available on Amazon, here are some more details about the story as specified online.
“Franky can’t wait to move to his new town – although he wishes he didn’t have to leave his best friend Dani behind.
But everything changes after the storm, when strange green lightning and powerful thunder crash down on the town. From that night on, the kids who live on Franky’s street start to change. One by one, they become a little odd. A little unusual. A little… magical.
Franky’s always wanted to be part of an amazing gang – just like his hero, super-spy Zack Danger! And soon, he realises that there’s real danger in store for himself and his new friends.”
Sounds great and would make a lovely gift for children who love to read.
I’m getting more excited as these guides go live for Christmas! We only have less than a month to go now. I hope they give you some inspiration for your little ones.
