Ideas for Christmas gifts for children

Sharing is caring!

It can be such a challenge to figure out what gifts are best to buy your children at Christmas. If your kids are like mine, if you ask them what they would like for Christmas they just put EVERYTHING down on their list. As a parent, you will know that some toys just won’t get played with much though once the novelty has worn off. This year’s Christmas gifts for children guide includes 15 ideas that are diverse and sustainable, including dolls, dressing up items, treats, games, STEM toys and more. As usual, prices go from cheapest to most expensive.

Kids love BLOPENS (affiliate link) as they can create fantastic sparkly airbrush pictures. Place a stencil on a sheet of paper, blow in the pen and see your drawing appear! Blow in lines and circles as well as blowing harder and softer for different effects. Use the same pens to add extra detail for a perfect finishing touch. From 3 years up.

The Weather pop up book £19.99 RRP

From raucous stormy seas to a welcomingly vivid rainbow, weather’s most exciting moments come to brilliant life in this fantastic new hardback, climate neutral pop-up book, The Weather (affiliate link).

Preeminent paper artist Maike Biederstädt takes book engineering to new heights with five electrifying weather scenarios and meticulously designed landscapes – a freighter balances like a nutshell between high waves in the sea; a tornado takes aim at a truck trying to outrun it; a storm cloud towers like a skyscraper over a farm house. Nature’s delicate beauty emerges in the intricate shapes of a snowflake and the luminous arc of a rainbow.

Each page features an informative description of its weather event and the book closes with sobering commentary on the effects of climate change. A wondrous introduction to weather for budding climatologists and an artistic tour de force that collectors will treasure. For ages 5 up. My 6 year old will adore this, it’s a really beautiful book.

  1. Love these ideas! I always struggle buying for my god children as I don’t want to get random items they won’t use. I’m in love with that Coding game, I completely agree that the future is tech. Is 33 to old to put it on my list for Santa? 😉 Melis x
