Christmas is only around the corner, and I for one hate the thought of buying pointless gifts. You don’t need to spend megabucks this year, don’t do it! Think carefully and spend those pennies wisely.
You may have noticed that I haven’t explicitly said what age or gender these Christmas gift ideas are for. Firstly, the thought of naming “Girls” & “Boys” presents sounds dated. Girls, boys, men and woman may like things that are aimed specifically at a particular gender. Me? I get miffed when I see Star Wars goodies in a “Men’s” section. I LIKE STAR WARS TOO! And I’m pretty sure cardboard boxes have been enjoyed by both girls and boys over the years. They make fantastic spaceships btw.
As for the appropriate age, yes, there are a couple of things that you may think that your 4-year-old would like, but so would your 70-year-old gran!
So my pretties here is my list of favourite goodies this year.
Jojo Maman Bébé Christmas Eve Sack £12.00
Not necessarily a gift, but a great way to kick start the art of giving. There seems to be a new craze of giving a present on Christmas Eve. I’m using the term “new” because when I was younger, my mum would let me open a small gift. You know, to stop me from spontaneously combusting at the thought of having to wait until Christmas day to open the rest of my presents. I think its a fab idea if you don’t have stockings for kids. Again, no need to spend loads, something as simple as a colouring book or activities to keep kids entertained.
Jojo Maman Bébé Play BBQ – £32.00
I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for wooden toys. This Play BBQ set is the cutest, the attention to detail had me joining in and pouring Ketchup on my burger. Prepared by Ziggy of course. Remember when I said this Christmas gift list wasn’t age specific? Well let’s say this one is suitable for ages 3-99, I enjoyed it!
Lush Christmas Bubble Bars – From £3.95
Naughty Elf Bubble Bar, Puddy Holly Bubbleroon & Candy Cane Reusable Bubble Bar. Lush does a heck more than bath bombs, so why not slip a couple into a stocking or give as a Secret Santa present. You’ll get major props for thinking outside of the box, and your recipients will smell great…bonus!
The Happy Mail Personalised Christmas Slab (white Chocolate) – £15.95
Merry Christmas from The Fontaines! The Happy Mail has a plethora of fun treats that are good enough to give to your bestie…or just order and keep for yourself. Be quick, this small business shuts for the holidays, so be sure to get your orders in by early-mid December.
Cozmo Robot by Anki- £129.99
Hey big spender! Ok, you may be thinking that this one is on the pricey side, well it is. If you look at this little guy as a main Christmas present that will entertain both young and old for hours and probably years to come, it’s probably worth it. Download the app and watch Cozmo come alive. He can learn how to do tricks, interact with pets and learn your name.
Cozmo, a great gift that will allow you to spy on your kids. Yes, I said that, feel free to quote me.
Flying Tiger Christmas Shopper Bag – £2
Before I go, I wanted to share this handy Christmas gift accessory. It’s not a present, but I guess it could be! I have purchased a few for mates that I know will be on the road this Christmas and spending time with family.
Will you be travelling over the Christmas period and taking gifts with you? Pack your presents for friends and family in these handy reusable shopper bags. Both you and your prezzies will arrive in style- another day, another slay!
