AD | Gift Guide. With bonfire night long behind us, it is full steam ahead for Christmas and I simply cannot wait! I feel like we really need some festive cheer in our house this year.
It’s at this time of year that my thoughts always turn to Christmas gifts and whether you’re an early buyer or a last-minute dasher, I’m hoping that I can give you a little inspiration as to what to buy for the little people in your life this year.

Join Milo, Mary and their magical Granny as they meet the Excited Elf, a Mischief Maker causing festive mayhem just before the big day.

Big characters for little hands, these Action Heroes Twin Figure Sets are great options to start your Action Hero collection. Choose from the Police and Adventurer figure heroic twin pack or the Hero and Sports Person, each figure is 7cm tall and comes with two facial expressions which can be swapped with a twist of their heads.
Each figure has interchangeable heads, torsos and legs and the pop and swap technology allow you to create your very unique character.
Boddle Bath Bathtime Fun
My two LOVE a bath bomb and if your little ones are the same, it’s worth taking a little look at Boddle Bath. A small business where your purchase will make a real difference to a rather lovely lady called Jen. Her bath products are beautiful and so much fun.
And if you or your little ones REALLY like bath products and soap, then check out her monthly Boddle Box subscription.

Active learning packs from Oaka
This option is a little different but is a great little people who love to learn.
There are many parents and guardians who are still worried about the loss of classroom time over the past two years and Oaka packs work to address that concern. Their education packs present information in a visual way and provide techniques to help children as they learn.
Each pack focuses on a topic and includes a booklet, workbook and active-learning game. Covering a range of topics for KS1, KS2, KS3 and KS4/GCSE you can view the entire range on the Oaka website.
Yoto Mini Screen Free Player
Finally, I’m added this one in because we’ve recently reviewed it, and we genuinely loved it. There is no doubt that there will be new Yoto cards underneath the tree this Christmas.
If you’re looking for a bigger children’s gift this year that will also be something that you can build on for every birthday and Christmas to follow, then it’s worth taking a closer look at the review.
