Christmas is only a matter of days away and I’m secretly crying in a corner at the thought of going last minute Christmas shopping because I have bought the square root of fuck all for 90% of the family (pray for me).

Despite the fact I clearly suck at adulting I have compiled a list of gift ideas for kids to help any last minute shoppers like myself. Please tell me I’m not alone!?

Bedtime Stories for Rebel Girls

This book is my absolute favourite book I have ever bought for Eloise. It is absolutely filled with fabulous women who have achieved fabulous things throughout history, breaking the stereotype and empowering little girls everywhere.

This is an absolute must have for girls and boys alike, many a night I find Eloise curled up in bed reading the extraordinary tales about these amazing women. I cannot stress how much I love this book!

Wheely Bright Bike Wheel Lights

Who doesn’t want cool lights on their bikes?! These LED wheel lights from JML attach to the wheels, obviously, and create the most cool effects that kids will be sure to love whilst creating a safer riding experience, especially as it gets dark so early in the winter! A win win really; a cool present and safety all in one!


This is pretty much the holy grail of kids games, Eloise is obsessed. It has endless creative, world building opportunities which can be made younger kid friendly by playing in creative mode, erasing combat with creepers and skeletons or peaceful mode which eradicates any enemies.

The Children’s Meditations In My Heart 

This book by Gitte Winter Graugaard is so lovely and has helped children all over the world get to sleep. Originally published in Danish, this book is all about love, strengthening your child’s sense of belonging and self-love. It has some great messages for children as well as ones they can carry into adulthood.

My Golden Ticket – Wonderbly

This book is perfect for little Roald Dahl lovers! The illustrations are beautiful throughout and the entire book is personalised with your child’s name putting them at the heart of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory! A must have for any Charlie and the Chocolate Factory fans!



A warm hug shaped like a cute animal? What more could you want? These little character microwave wheat bags are prefect for chilly evenings and for snuggling on the sofa watching Christmas films after a lovely big family dinner. They also have a velcro band making them super easy for the younger ones to keep in place!

Disney’s Play That Tune

Disney? Check. Loud instruments? Check? Loooads of fun? Check. This game is guaranteed to be loved, what kid doesn’t want a game that involves kazoos? Plus, no Christmas is complete without that little touch of Disney, am I right?

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
