FESTIVE STYLEJust a week and a day to go, and that means it’s time to wrap up (no pun intended) your Christmas shopping! Whether you’re shopping for your baby niece or teenage son, it can be stressful if you’ve still got special kids on your list and don’t have a clue what to buy. Not to worry, we’ve rounded up some favourite toys, games, clothing, and more to make their Christmas a special one. Even better? Everything’s £30 or less, and the last order dates before Christmas are listed in bold so you know what’s what. Let the shopping begin!


 You can’t go wrong with a soft toy, and this traditional teddy is the perfect gift when you’re not quite sure what to get (and don’t want to spend loads). It’s £9.99 at Toys R Us.

You’ll have the cutest baby around in this cosy reindeer pram suit with matching hat (£16 at Marks and Spencer), or for a thicker, outdoor option, choose the penguin fleece pramsuit (£20).

Over at Hamleys, they’ve got loads of toys for the baby set, like this Fisher Price Poppity Pop turtle or hippo (£6), Hamleys baby smart phone (£10), or Peter Rabbit Big Box Little set (£9.99).

Little Kids

My niece’s went mental over this Fisher-Price Little People Klip Klop Princess Stable. The horses “ride” down the ramp for loads of fun, and right now it’s an amazing half off at Toys R Us, just £24.99!

With 50% off selected toys and books, you can do some damage at M&S and not damage your budget! My picks from the half-off range: a fun Christmas sticker book (£2.50), Disney’s Frozen Boxset book with a sing-along clip (£7), Spiderman colouring tin (£6), and the Peppa Pig card games set (£2).

For a toy with a bit of Christmas cheer, this Sylvanian Families Christmas Set at Toys R Us s adorable with its tiny Christmas tree, rabbit figure, gifts, and more. It’s suited for ages 3-10 and £17.99.

Big Kids/Teens

Accessories like a scarf, necklace, gloves, bag, or cosy pair of slippers are a safe bet for a tween/teen girl when you don’t know sizes. I’m adoring these neon textured knitted boot slippers (£19) and Kerala diamond blanket scarf (on sale for £18.90), flower and bug statement collar necklace (£25), and Chamonix fairisle long cut off gloves (on sale for £10.50) at Accessorize. If you’ve got loads of shopping to do, you’ll save £15 if you spend £80 using our code.

Christmas jumpers are always a fun gift, and for the older kid Zavvi have got a great range of styles from Star Wars to Marvel, Disney and more, all for £14.99. They’ve also got a selection of under £10 games, perfect for cousins, nephews, or the childrens’ school friends when you want to buy something small.

Over at I Want One of Those, you’ll find amazing gift ideas for all the teens on your list, like this space coaster marble run (£15.99), Natural History Museum dinosaur torch and projector (£6.99) or Myphoto iPhone case (£6.99). We’ve got 3 for £18 and 6 for £35 codes on selected stocking fillers, too.
