Christmas gift guide: For the kids



Today we have my last christmas gift guide for this year and its for the kids! I have 2 nephews and Blake to buy Christmas gifts for and on top of that both Blake and my eldest nephews birthdays are in December so I'm always on the look out for ideas. This guide mainly features gifts for children 3 years and over and a few ideas for children a little older and babies too. 

Don't forget you can read my other two guides I've done this year for him and for her if you are in need of ideas for teenagers and adults.




Snowglobe by Amy Wilson | Amazon | RRP: £6.99



Snowglobe tells the story of daydreamer Clementine who has been trying to avoid her magic for a while but it has been getting stronger, and harder to ignore.  Whilst at school, she loses control of it and realises she can escape it no longer. When she is drawn to a mysterious house in the middle of town that was never there before, she is pulled in by the powerful sense of a mother she never knew.  Once inside, she finds the place is full of hanging snowglobes, each one shaken, churned up and containing a trapped magician, each one lost in time. So Clem ventures into the snowglobes in an attempt to release all the magicians from their glassy domes.  In the process, she discovers her own powerful connection to the magic of these miniature worlds and, unknowingly, she unleashes a struggle for power that will put, not only her own family, but the future of magic itself in grave danger.  For ages 9 years and over.

  1. Some great ideas here! I think I'm going to get the Say hello activity spiral for my little boy. he's only 15 weeks old so he won't understand Christmas this year and there isn't a huge amount of things I can buy for him!
