It’s that time of year where we’re all rushing around looking for Christmas gift ideas for the kids. Whether it’s for your own kids or someone else’s, it’s not always easy finding something they don’t already have.
I’ve decided to split my Christmas gift guides by price. You don’t always have to spend a lot to buy something the little one will love. Trust me I’ve found some winners and I’m happy to share them with you!
1. Melissa & Doug is a brand I’ve become a tad obsessed with. They offer an amazing selection of toys and activities. I bought this reusable sticker pad for Lamb for his birthday in March. He’s obsessed with stickers and loves animals, so when I saw this was reusable I grabbed it. Best. Decision. Ever. If your kid loves stickers you won’t regret buying this. There’s a few available, in fact Lamb has most of them! The Melissa & Doug Habitats Reusable Sticker Pad can be bought from Amazon for £3.49 – bargain!
2. Continuing with Melissa & Doug products, we also bought Lamb this sticker collection for his birthday. With a selection of 500 stickers to choose from this will last for ages and has everything from transport to animals. We bought the blue version, but there’s a pink one too for the girlies. You can buy the Melissa & Doug Blue Sticker Collection from Amazon for only £2.09!
3. Boy or girl, any toddler I’ve known or met loves a shopping basket. Unfortunately Lamb doesn’t have one anymore after he threw it into the road while having a tantrum and it was run over by a car! Yep. That happened. We have refused to buy him a new one to teach him a lesson. Although I don’t think he’s really bothered about what happened, he came home gloating about it being run over! You can buy this Little Shopper Fruit and Vegetable Basket from Amazon for £5.
4. Lamb seems to have discovered a love for puzzles recently. Luckily I picked up a farm animal floor puzzle from Tesco in their sale a few days before his birthday, and we are still playing with it now. I’ve had a look and it’s not available anymore, so I’ve found a similar one from Amazon. For £5 this Orchard Toys Who’s on the Farm? puzzle is an absolute bargain. It’s perfect for young toddlers, but will last for ages.
5. Lamb has recently discovered Playdoh (something I’ve avoided buying until he was a little older and could play with it and not eat it!) He has this Minion Playdoh set, however it’s more than £5, but you can get the Sparkle Playdoh collection for £3.98! Ok, so it’s a little girly but will the boys really care? Lamb likes butterflies and flowers too! And his favourite colour is pink…
So there’s my under £5 toddler Christmas gift guide. I hope you’ve found it useful. Keep an eye out for my next guide which will be toddler Christmas gifts under £10.
