Holidays are comin’, holidays are comin’…My kids have been following me around for the last few weeks flapping their Christmas lists in my face. I’ve held out long enough. I need to get busy. So do the rest of you last minute.com mothers like me. So, what are we waiting for? Here’s my Top Ten list for what you need to get your kids for Xmas. Let’s go!
We’ll blast off with this brilliant teepee! Perfect for your little camper. £145 from Field Candy.
OK breathe. Kawaii heaven. Not only that, these Fuji Instax cameras are such an awesome present. My girls love theirs. Unlike photos snapped on iThis and iThat they are printed there and then, AND they can write messages on them too – so they are great for sharing with pals. Win win. £99.01 Colette.
This is brilliant idea! You buy a basic grey safety helmet and then you can customise it with a choice of reasonably prices clip on covers like this sporty looking number. The helmet is by Egg costs €75. and covers like this cost €15 each from Smallable.
How very pretty is this number by Penny Boards? Forget the fact I don’t have a Sk8tr girl – I want this on their bedroom wall! £109 from Selfridges.
This Anki Overdrive is top of my girls’ list. It’s difficult to see how amazing this toy is in a picture – it’s basically race cars you control via your iOS or Android device and they go round a real track, can do tricks, have lights, sounds – it basically merges digital and real toys. And let me tell you – these wheels are hot hot HOT for this Xmas. Starter Kit £149.99 Anki Overdrive.
This is a great shape sorting game for babies and toddlers. It also educates them as to what foods they can eat or not eat. It’s called Edible Inedible by Shusha Toys and is from Abacus Kids £45. Hopefully your kids won’t create their own counter to represent your cooking and place it in the inedible section…
Wake up! Star Wars The Force Awakens is coming…..and your kids can rock the look at floor level whilst keeping their tootsies toasty in these Star Wars Moon Boots from Melijoe. “Boots stylish they are” as Yoda would say! Star Wars Fire Moon Boot £75 Alex and Alexa.
OK so he’s not exactly stylish – but he is educational, as you have to build him from scratch yourself using Meccano parts – which makes him stylish in my opinion! Plus – once he’s built – he can high 5 your kid for being so clever! Meccano’s Meccanoid G15 Personal Robot £169.99 Selfridges.
This is an oldie but a goodie – especially if you have sushi loving kids! My girls used to have this and they played with it all the time! Melissa & Doug sushi slicing play set €19 Smallable.
Last but no way least, I love this personalised ride on toy. It’s so stylish. Unlike it’s plastic counterparts, it doesn’t sit there looking ugly and ruining that mid-century modern look you were going for at home when not in use. £89 (+£11 for personalisation) by Oskar & Catie from Not On The High Street.
So my lovely Kids Style hunters, now you can keep calm and just worry about the turkey and your post Christmas cellulite – as we have your kids’ stylish Xmas presents all wrapped up! Get busy!
