Looking for some gift giving inspiration this Christmas? I’ve rounded up my favourite gifts for children – and the best bit is they are all under £15! Whether your little one is into princesses, crafts, science, cars – or all of the above – there’s something for everyone.
1. Paw Patrol Fuzzy-Felt
I used to love playing with Fuzzy Felts when I was little – so when we were sent this Paw Patrol version by John Adams Toys I knew Clara would love it. The set includes over 70 felt shapes and a felt play board, so your Paw Patrol fans can recreate all their favourite scenes with the Ryder and the pups. Available on Amazon.
2. Make Your Own Chocolate House
My girls love chocolate, they love making things and they love baking and getting creative in the kitchen – so this gift really brings together all their favourite things! The kit includes everything you need to make your own chocolate house – including a mould, chocolate and instructions for assembling the house. Available from What2Buy4Kids.co.uk for £12.50.

4. Disney Princess Itty Bittys
How cute are the latest additions to the Hallmark Itty Bitty collection? These would make perfect stocking fillers for Disney fans, the only problem will be picking your favourite! Available on Amazon.
5. Peppa Pig Wooden Clock

6. The Amazing Craft Company
The brainchild of two busy mums, these themed craft kits include everything you need to keep the kids occupied – for a while at least! You can pick from a range of themes including fairies, space and under the sea, and each box contains 5 different craft activities. Available from The Amazing Craft Company for £12.00 per box.
7. PJ Masks Owlette Flyer
Fans of PJ Masks will love this 3 inch Owlette figure – the vehicle has spaces for all three characters, and you can buy similar sets with Catboy and Gecko, as well as other characters to complete the collection.
8. The Science of Slime
Create your own slime and play dough with this science kit – it contains everything you need for 8 different experiments. Kids will have so much fun making messy slime, while parents can be assured it’s all in the name of science!
9. Disney Princess Little Kingdom Ariel’s Sea Castle
Princess fans will love exploring life under the sea with this magical castle, which comes with a Little Mermaid figure and accessories.
10. Bake with Lili and Dex
These baking boxes contain everything your children need to experiment in the kitchen, including ready prepared ingredients and instructions. Choose from unicorn biscuits, popping candy planes, toffee apple muffins and flowerpot cupcakes – they will inspire children to get creative and will keep them busy! Available from Bake with Lili and Dex from £5.50.
11. My Little Pony Backpack
My kids have different backpacks for different things – dancing, swimming, nursery, and one for just general day-to-day use. It’s always handy to have a bag available for day trips, holidays and sleepovers, and this My Little Pony one has plenty of room and additional pockets for all those essentials – and not so essentials (I found half a transformer in Clara’s nursery bag this morning!)
12. Disney Car 3 DVD
What better way to relax after all the excitement of opening presents and being stuffed with Christmas dinner, than to put on a new film for all the family to enjoy. Our girls usually get a new DVD or two off Father Christmas each year to add to their ever-growing Disney collection.
13. My Little Pony Power Ponies 3 Pack
My Little Pony gets a second mention in our gift guide – mainly because they are everywhere at the moment thanks to the movie, but also as they are Clara’s favourite thing to play with right now. This 3 pack featuring Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy and Spike the Dragon in superhero costumes is just adorable.
14. Lego Mighty Micros
Your favourite superheroes and villans can race to victory with these mini Lego vehicles and minifigures from popular DC and Marvel comics. This one is Batman vs Killer Moth – others include Captain America vs Red Skull, The Flash vs Captain Cold and Iron Man vs Thanos, plus many more.
15. Disney Moana Jigsaw
This 100 piece jigsaw includes extra large pieces to help little hands when putting it together, and features Disney’s Moana and Maui.
We received the chocolate house and Paw Patrol Fuzzy Felts for inclusion in this gift guide. The Itty Bittys were also given to us for inclusion in another blog post. All other products have been selected by me and all words are my own. Prices quoted here may change.
