Christmas Gift Guide 2021 – For Children

Christmas is coming, and as the shops start to fill up with all their Christmas offerings, and adverts start to appear on the TV.  I have been working hard on bringing you a great Christmas Gift Guide 2021 For Children.  Full of great gift ideas for any budget.  From small stocking fillers to bigger gifts.

Grab a cuppa and hopefully I have some great gift ideas for you.

Cheeky Monsters

My Cheeky Monsters is a new range of children’s books and soft cuddly toys that have been created by Anna Breese-Davies.  With more than 12 years working for The Walt Disney Company she has achieved her dream and created a lovely range of stories.

Each book comes with its own character and storyline, great gifts for children and you can keep adding until you have the full range


Moonshine Ball

With so many things up in the air these days, keep life fun and never grow up with high-flying family toys from Waboba®. Invented in Sweden in 2005 with the original “ball that bounces on water”, millions of land and water balls are sold in over 70 countries every year, bringing family, friends and dogs together to play outdoors. Light up your life with the new MoonShine Ball, the crazy, gravity defying ball which turns a routine game into an out of this world free-for-all. It’s extremely addictive to bounce, so don’t say we didn’t warn you! This hyper bouncing ball makes a unique “pop” sound when it hits the ground, bounces up to 100 feet and lights up for seven seconds when bounced. Over 100 hours of battery life will ensure a full moon every night! – Available from Wicked Uncle and other toy outlets


Fidget Toys

TikTok and playgrounds around the world have driven interest in fidget toys. Millions of new varieties, from the original brand the kick started the craze, Tangle, are a great idea for Christmas. Available at pocket money prices from retailers including Asda, The Entertainer, Smyths Toys, B&M and more. Tangle has sold over 250 million toys to date, making them a hit with multiple generations of kids since their launch almost 40 years ago. But adults are also using them for stress release and focus, which according to Dr. Jet Khasriya, an NHS-registered and private GP, is a scientifically proven phenomenon. Fun as well as useful, these new Tangles are set to hit UK stores: Metallic, Pets, Crush and Classic.

    What an awesome selection of gifts for Children! Lot’s of inspiration! Have to admit that I’m loving the My Cheeky Monsters plush, what a gorgeous peppermint colour! 🙂 I really do need to get cracking with Christmas shopping, just don’t seem to have the energy for it this year! Sim x

      I have the book and plush monster and love it, but am tearing myself away from it and giving to one of my granddaughters, it is lovely and now want to get them the full set. We have C’s 18th on Sunday so once that is over with I can start to think about Christmas fully.

      It is great fun to play something retro but not electronically

    I love your gift selection. My son is really into superheroes so that Batman car would be ideal for him. That’s great timing as I’ve started my Christmas shopping. The teddy and book look ideal for my nephew. They’re so cute.

      My daughter took the fidget toys as soon as they arrived, although they are quite addictive, we are going away in a couple of weeks with friends so taking this with us as small enough to not take up any room
