It's been a pretty awful year with covid, lockdowns and social distancing. So this year I'm trying to make Christmas extra special for Blake. With lockdown 2.0 it means alot of Christmas shopping is having to be done online. If your stuck with what to buy this Christmas I'm here to give you some inspiration. Tomorrow I'll be sharing a Christmas guide for the adults but today it's all about the kids. 

If you know a child who loves sensory play than they will love the variety of products from Zimpli kids. From Bath bombs to Slime and Gelli Baff their products aren't just lots of fun but can be educational too. 

The Wow Journal | £15
The WOW Journal is a fun creativity and wellbeing journal for ages 5-12, created for kids by kids.The journal has a simple premise: to help children notice, appreciate and reflect on all the amazing things in life that make them say: "Wow!"

There are four sections: Wow Lists, for things in various categories that wow them; Wow Days, diary pages with imaginative question prompts; Wow Stories, pages for them to write stories; and Wow Doodles, for when they'd rather do amazing drawings than write. UK customers can place their order by emailing

Where's (Name of child) by Itsyourstory | £19.50 (softback) £22 (hardback) plus postage 

Itsyourstory's popular Christmas book is back.
The personalised story follows the adventures of a young boy or girl who wakes on Christmas morning but is far too excited to go back to sleep. The child creeps around the house discovering that there's plenty of fun to be had while the rest of the family sleeps - from nibbling some icing from the Christmas cake to finding reindeer tracks in the snow and feeling their presents under the tree.

There are three animals to spot on each page and the story line is simple and engaging, capturing all the rituals of Christmas from building a snowman to leaving out a mince pie for Father Christmas.
