Right, I have already shared with you this years For Her Christmas Gift Guide and the For Him Christmas Gift Guide and now it’s time to share the most important one – The Kids Christmas Gift Guide.

I don’t know about you, but I am finding it harder ever year choosing what toys to buy my kids. Normally as soon as we get a few toy catalogues through our door end of September, the kids are planing what is going to be on their list. The tell me all the time what’s on it and what is the most important item to get. But then come beginning of December, they present me with their wish list again, but this time it’s completely different!! The most important items that you just had to get them, they are no longer interested in and they now have a new more expensive favourite item. That’s why it’s a good idea to save your money up and get all the toys for the kids closer to the big day. At least you will have one item that is on their list.

Anyway, here is my Kids Christmas Gift Guide 2016.

  1. Great list. We have the shopping list game which is great and my daughter wants the puppy surprise and the buddy ball off this list. I really like the playmags which I haven’t seen before. Let’s hope that Santa has a super sized sack 🙂

  2. Wow what a list! Some fabulous items. We have recently discovered the world of playmobil and Santa is bringing a whole hose of items from their ranges. We love story cubes in our house they are great fun for getting the imagination going and the explanation packs make great stocking fillers #MarvMondays

  3. Hi Natasha,
    I’m so glad I saw this post. My daughter keeps telling me there’s a dog with puppies she wants for christmas. I wonder if it’s the one you’ve listed?
    Think my little one would like the bath toy too.
    Thanks for sharing your ideas.

  4. The Orchard Shopping List is a good one, I used to use it with my little sister and she loved it! Great gift ideas and I liked your other lists too!

  5. Ah, some amazing gifts in this post! I love that even though times have changed, shopping and cooking toys are still a hit – I remember my sweet shop, my kitchen and my post office as a kid and my mother was the same!

  6. This year, there are no under eighteens in the family to buy presents for, such a pity as now I have no excuse to wander around toy shops and see all the amazing toys there are these days.

  7. Love your ideas! I am so lost with my kids for this year. I feel like I need to get them something ‘significant’; not just toys…then I do a back flip and think that toys are what they want… Any suggestions help. #bigpinklink

  8. Gone are the days when circling your fav toys in the Argos catalog would suffice! It must be so hard to buy for kids these days when there are so many choices out there!
