Don’t know what to buy your kids for Christmas this year then join the club. My girls have so much that I always struggle. I know I could give them more ‘experience’ type presents, but for our family, Christmas is about giving, receiving and unwrapping presents. We love to see the girls faces (and each others) so I am always on the hunt for new and unique pre school present ideas, but they don’t have to be expensive and Wicked Uncle are my place to go this year. .
** This post is written in partnership with Wicked Uncle and we have been compensated for our time. **
I do however think there is a huge pressure on parents to spend a fortune on your kids and I defiantly don’t think you need to do this. There are plenty of affordable presents you can buy which your children will love just as much. As a child I remember the smaller presents always being the best and let’s face it, they still are – I’ve been hinting for an eternity ring for years!!
As a family, we set each child a small budget and stick to it. I try and get as much for our money as possible so pocket money toys are great and the girls love them. Because of this I wanted to share with you some great gift ideas that will have your kids smiling all day long.
