Christmas is creeping ever closer and if you’re anything like me you haven’t finished (or even started even) getting all those presents, so here are a few ideas for childrens gifts. I don’t like to say whether they are boy or girl as my daughter loves being a superhero one minute and Elsa the next so I personally think you can buy them for either.
1 Mitre Personalised Football £30
This lovely personalised fooball come in 3 different colours (Green, Red and Blue), just add add in your recipients name on ordering and it will be added to the front of the ball. Think it’s going to be a mission to wrap up? Worry not, it comes in an easy to wrap gift box! Phew! Your fab footie present will be delivered fully pumped up within five days, making it the ideal gift for any footy fan – no matter what their age! Kids love to have something with their name on it don’t they!
2 Super Mario Bros Pixel Craft Magnets from Paladone £5.99
720 magnetic pixels for your little Mario fan (if you let them get their hands on them- how much fun?!) to create Mario characters or designs such as the easily recognisable coin, mushroom or flower as illustrated on the packaging. Hours of fun.
3 Butterkist Christmas Popcorn range from MRRSP £1.49*

They come in Gingerbread, Salted Caramel and Choc Mallow flavours and are perfect for that lazy afternoon over the Christmas period watching a family film. The Choc Mallow ones are my faves. Yum!
