When it comes to gifts for children, you’d think it’s pretty easy as there’s so many different things on offer and targeted to the little ones in our lives, but sometimes the array of options can be overwhelming and headache inducing! Especially when most of us like to get something the child will actually like and make use of.
Below are my top ten gifts which will hopefully take some stress out of your decisions. I’ve chosen items that are universal, fun and educational.
Wooden fish game
This style of toy has really started to become popular among parents as many are reducing the plastic and breakable items.
I love this game as it would be ideal as a family gift and sure to keep the little kids occupied at home.

Kids audio player
I really love this idea! Great for toddlers and pre-schoolers, it’s a portable speaker that allows you to insert popular audio books in the form of cards and have an interactive reading session. Great for on the go too and some of the features include a night light and sleep training settings.

Whether your child is reading or you are reading to your child, you can’t beat a set of Classic Roald Dahl books
Roald Dahl’s Glorious Galumptious Story Collection (Roald Dahl Box Set)
Not much to look at and a seemingly simple idea, however, balance boards provide a huge amount of play, concentration, relaxation, the list really is up to you. A favourite among fans of the Montessori method of children’s education and something so simple to hide away and store. Let the kids imaginations run wild while they exercise core skills.
