With an average spend of £312 per child on Christmas gifts these days, Santa’s delivery isn’t very ho ho ho if you’re on a budget. But you don’t have to clock up a big bill to give them a Christmas to remember. In the second of our series on great gifts under a tenner, we pick some fabulous Christmas gifts for girls of all ages…
Little ones can discover magnetism with the Babysea Geomag Mini (£7.19). The pieces connect or repel each other, are easy to stack and can even be used in the bath! These are fantastic multipurpose Christmas gifts for girls as each piece rattles when shaken and the sea character can also be used as a teether.
Create a ceiling galaxy with the glow-in-the-dark universe (£4.99), a thousand stickers that include stars, rockets, flying saucers and crescent moons. The stickers glow for an hour after light exposure and are a great alternative to a nightlight! Try glow in the dark hands and feet (£3.95) or pink glow in the dark stars (£3.95) for a twist.
Have friends over for a tea party with this brilliant-value ceramic Tea set and hamper (£8). The pretty polka dot set includes a teapot, milk jug, sugar pot, cups, saucers and spoons – and a wicker hamper to pack them in. All you need are the fairy cakes to go with it….
More mulipurpose Christmas gifts for girls! Make fabulous creations with Yummy Dough (£7.99). This just-add-water edible mouldable dough comes in four colours (red, blue, green and yellow), which can be mixed together to make
other colours. When finished, the creations can be oven baked (adult supervision needed) – and eaten!
Encourage your child’s artistic side with Bath Crayons (£3.22), for wipe-clean scribbling on tiles and tubs, or Water Flutes (£6.97). Different musical tones are created with different water levels, and sheet music is included so they can play while they bathe.
Let them put their mark on their room with this personalised room plaque £9.50. It’s a stylish way to add a personal touch to their space.
A torch is a great gift for all little explorers! The Summit LED Frog Head Torch (£4.99) is perfect for reading under the bedcovers (also comes in a Monkey and Lion). Or go eco, with the Eco Farm Dynamo Torch (£5.10) – just squeeze the sides to charge the torch up, no batteries needed.
Spark their imagination with Rory’s Story Cubes (£9.99), nine picture cubes to roll and then create a story that links them all. There are 54 images and 10 million combinations for hours (and hours) of fun. Great for long journeys, and playing with family members of all ages.
Chances are once they’ve unwrapped the Cheeky Chops lockable journal (£7.50) it will be spirited away to their bedroom immediately to hear all their secrets. This cute diary has a shiny pattern cover – and a lock and keys to foil prying parental
eyes. Keep out!
Carry the world in and on a pencil case. The Clippy (£14.99) comes in white, silver or pink and has three clear pockets for photographs, notes and stickers. Best of all, they can easily be updated with the latest events/friends/interests etc.
