  1. It’s fantastic how many options are these days for presents for the young members of the family. The pass the pud game sounds like a great way of keeping the children entertained during the Christmas Day. And you can never go wrong with a teddy.

    1. There are so many great presents for the kids, you can never go wrong with a good game to play, and the teddy is one that lights up and glows but can be cuddled. My Daughter had one when she was little (she still has it in her bedroom) and it was great if she woke up in the night with a bad dream or something as we would press glowy bears hand and it would like up and scare whatever it was away, always worked x

  2. Nice selection of potential Christmas gifts for the younger set,books are always overlooked but I think the sooner kids start reading,the more they’ll love it.

    1. Haha it is not bad at all, C had one when she was little and it really was a life saver in getting her off to sleep, I loved to sit and hold her bear as well x

  3. My favourite part of Christmas shopping is buying for the younger ones. I find it so easy, and I get far too excited. This is a lovely list of ideas, particularly love the personalised books. I got my son something similar a couple of years ago, and he totally loved it.

    1. I love all the stocking filler bits too, the personalised book is so nice and something kids will love to read over and over again x
