Christmas is coming and the goose (and probably a lot of people – me included) is getting fat! Well, we can’t deny it any longer (not that we’d want to – our decorations have been up since the 1st December!) IT’S CHRISTMAS! I am absolutely buzzing and although I’m a Christmas fanatic I’ve been a bit slow and short of ideas for present hunting this year and I know a couple of people – Hi Dad – who love(/or at least find themselves) to leave it all to the last minute so here’s a few extra ideas for anyone still struggling…
Heelys – SkateHut – £25-£45
Anyone else have a pair of heelys when they were little? OMG they were the best things ever! I remember feeling like such the sassy little sass-master I was just casually walking through town and then all of sudden – off I went rolling on down the street! I felt like the bomb! However, my pair were when they weren’t really a thing and I had to attach the wheels to the outside of my trainers, whereas now they’re built in for the added mystery! SkateHut have also got a pretty good deal of up to 45% off at the moment so grab them quick!
Lush Bath Fun – £5.95
Lush have some of the best products right now! I love Lush anyway and at Christmas it’s all the more reason to buy everything you can! Since we have a couple of littlens in the family at the mo, but their parents are requesting minimal presents (which my mum has found very hard to deal with and has therefore decided to ignore completely) and you know there’s sort of that issue where I have no money and all the money I do have I’m saving for Oz next year … so when I came across these I thought that’s amazing! These are kind of like play dough I think but they double up as a bubble bath/body wash – genius! Such a great way to get kids excited for bath time and not gonna lie, some awesome creative fun for basically everyone – this isn’t just limited to kids, I for one would love to play! I opted for Elf on The Shelf but there’s a few good ones including Reindeer and Robin and Santa!
Underwater Disco – FireFox – £7.99
I bought this for my cousins children a few years ago when they were about 3 and 5 and they absolutely loved this. It’s basically a little disco ball you can put in the bath and creates loads of lights that disperse through the water. I thought it was a perfect little toy that’s a bit different and it turned out to be very popular!
Invent-A-Scent – PrezzyBox – £12.95
I used to love making braids or bracelets and cool things with these types of kits – how cool is it that you can now make perfume?! For creative little girls (appropriate for over 8s) who are into all things beauty and makeup, I think this kind of gift would be perfect!
Now I know it’s not very personal but I’m fairly sure you can’t go wrong with a package of fresh, homemade edible goodies for Christmas – especially for kiddies! They also make a great gift for friends or stocking fillers and are just that little bit more sentimental than say buying them from poundland!
I often make a big batch of Gingerbread Men Cookies around this festive season and for my past 5+ years of student-ing – this option has worked pretty well! The whole family – particularly the youngsters absolutely love them!
This year I’ve got my eye on these Festive Flapjacks so going to give them a go next week!
Any of these ideas look good? Who’s absolutely buzzing for Christmas??!
