Day 9 of Blogmas and today it’s my gift guide for the little ones! I’ve left the kids guide until last purposefully as often they chop and change their minds about what they’d like in the run up to Christmas and I’m hoping if you are still on the hunt for something to add to their present pile this post will give you some inspiration.
Squidgydoodle is a fabulous small business that we’ve personally road tested on the blog before. They offer a range of fun-filled craft & sensory boxes for kids with everything from Unicorns to Superheroes. This specially created box contains everything you need to enjoy four perfectly pitched activities with no need to go rummaging in drawers and cupboards for materials.
They make perfect gifts and can even be delivered direct to your recipient if required. The activities included are ideal to keep the kids busy in that lull we get between Christmas & New Year when keeping them entertained can be tricky!
Orders for guaranteed Christmas delivery must be placed by 12th December, so make sure you order soon to avoid disappointment.
Little ones always enjoy a look through Mum’s jewellery box don’t they, so why not get them their very own special piece of jewellery this Christmas! These bracelets are perfect for little wrists and can be personalised to make them truly unique. This cord bracelet is easily adjustable to fit and is available in a variety of colours. With the option of either a heart or circle charm you can personalise your gift with 4-5 words on each side with a font of your choice.
Delivery is FREE and your bracelet will be delivered in a gift box ready to wrap. Plus, if you quote FUNHOUSE* at the checkout you will receive a FREE GIFT with your order
Next up is another fabulous small biz, Rascalpack run by Mum Sharon Lowe. Combining safety and fun she has created the Bobby Bus Rascalpack, a kids backpack with a difference. Using the practicalities of a backpack, she has incorporated a colourful, fun reflective vest to the front to help kids stay safe when out and about.
I know my son absolutely loves carrying around his things himself – he is a big boy you know! – and this unique design allows children to have the independence of doing that with the added safety element.
If you are looking for something different to gift this year Rascalpack is the perfect mix of practicality and fun.
I’m not sure this next choice will go down well with parents! You all know the song and I’m sure even after simply reading the words ‘Baby Shark’ you’re now singing along in your head! I’m sorry to say they have released a special CD just in time for Christmas, which whilst parents reach for the Gin, I’m sure the kids will adore.
These fabulous jars are an amazing storytelling alternative that help kids have fun whilst developing a whole host of educational skills including language and imagination. The premise is simple yet effective, with each story jar containing a host of colour-coded story prompts and ideas to help little ones weave their very own tale.
This specially created Christmas edition offers magical festive story prompts, however there are a range of other themed jars available on their website. Jars can also be personalised with a child or family name to make a unique gift this Christmas.

As a family who read a lot my motto is you can never go wrong with a book as a gift! There are literally hundreds I could chose to add to my guide, but I’ve pitched for our all-time favourite, Little Robin Red Vest. It follows the story of little Robin as he prepares for Christmas, making sure of course to have enough clean vests for each day. Whilst out and about he meets different characters every day, all of whom have a problem he selflessly helps them resolve.
This is a sweet little festive tale with a fabulous message at its heart that we enjoy year in year out.
I don’t know about you but as a kid I always received a new board game for Christmas and it’s a tradition I have continued with my own children. I always look for a game that will be enjoyable for the whole family to get everyone involved and this looks perfect. Who doesn’t like a game of charades, and with all the kid friendly prompts included you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the fun.

Last year it was all about the Mermaid Tail Blanket, but these look even cooler! Eye-catching and warm these snuggly blankets will go down a storm I’m sure. Suitable for kids up to approx. 10yrs these blankets will make a great novelty gift for any little one.
