It’s that time of year! If your children are anything like mine, you will have a list as long as your arm of things they want, but what about the other children in your life? Children of close friends, nieces, nephews. Chances are they’re of all ages too. So here is my one stop shop list of gifts for children this Christmas.
1. Kids Rubix Cube
I have already spoken about my love for the Kids Rubix Cubes. You can check out my full review here. Prices start at just £6.99, and not only will this (hopefully) keep the kids entertained for a little while, it’s also great for developing their problem-solving skills – win-win!
2. Santa’s sack
Christmas morning is pretty exciting as it is but imagine their faces when they see a sack from Santa with their very own name on it. It will only add to the magic of Christmas morning. This one is from Gift Pup and can be personalised with two rows each with 12 characters each.
3. Name a star
Perhaps for the more mature child, but how special would it be to gift your child their very own star in the solar system?
The Intergalactic Star Database will give it your chosen name, and a unique database number which belongs solely to the recipient! In the pack, you receive detailed information to help you track down your star with a telescope, and an official certificate proving that it has been registered. You can find this beautiful gift at Find Me A Gift.
4. Glow in the dark Slime Factory
Slime! It’s everywhere, isn’t it? And if your child is anything like mine, they’ll be OBSESSED with it. Personally, I can’t bear the stuff but this Glow In The Dark Slime Factory is sure to have every slime fan smiling on Christmas morning! You can find this at Smiths Toys.
5. Fun Bricks 100pc
Maybe I’m just a big kid but I LOVE bricks like this. Even now at 37 years of age I could spend hours making things out of these fun bricks. The possibilities are endless and your little ones can let their imaginations run wild with the 100 piece Fun Bricks from John Adams. I’m tempted to put them on my own Christmas list!
6. Avengers Bedtime Sets
Perfect for a Christmas Eve bedtime box, these Avengers bedtime sets will be the ideal choice for your little superhero fan. The pyjamas have an elasticated waist and the slippers are faux fur lined – perfect for cold winter nights. By buying these in a bundle you’ll have a superhero worthy present and you’ll save yourself some money too! Find them at Cool Clobber. They also have a fabulous discount for my lovely readers. Enter WELCOME10 at checkout and you will receive a 10% discount!
7. Harry Potter LEGO Hogwarts Great Hall
One of the many new Harry Potter LEGO sets, the Hogwarts Great Hall comes with house banners, a tower with a movable spiral staircase, a potions room and a treasure room! It includes 10 minifigures: Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, Susan Bones, Professor McGonagall, Professor Quirrell with dual Lord Voldemort face, Hagrid, Albus Dumbledore and Nearly Headless Nick.
If your small person likes LEGO and Harry Potter this will be the present of dreams!
8. Fingerlings hugs
The Fingerlings have been with us for a while now but these new Fingerlings Hugs are bigger and better. Their long arms are perfect for big hugs and these cuddle monkeys never want to let you go! You can swing them, pet them, and rock them to sleep, or give them a kiss and watch them kiss you back! Then record what you say and watch them repeat in funny ways. They’ll likely drive you mad, but the kids will love them!
9. Crayola Ultimate Light Board
The new Crayola Ultimate Light Board lets you draw and display art with bright light effects. There is built in marker storage and a large wipe clean reusable drawing surface for creating over and over again. The budding artist in your family will be entertained for hours with this fantastic light board.
10. The Hearing Things Game
One for the kids but a bit of fun for all of the family. The Hearing Things game is a lip-reading challenge game. It comes with speech-cancelling electronic headphones and includes 150 cards with 600 phrases. You’ll have hours of fun with this.

Renowned for his humorous drawings and in particular his phenomenal contributions to the great works of children’s literature including books by Roald Dahl and David Walliams, Quentin Blake has been commissioned by the Science Museum, London to create brand new artwork for the walls outside its family-friendly Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery, for visitors of all ages to enjoy.
