The most exciting part of Christmas when you’re growing up is the moment you wake up in the morning and realise Santa has left your stocking at the end of the bed.
It often means that the pressure of thinking of even more gifts falls on parents and the big man in red gets all the credit.
If you’re struggling to think of ideas to fill up this year’s stocking, we have a series of gift guides coming up on our website to help you save time and get sorted for Christmas.
Here’s a few ideas for thoughtful stocking gifts under £20 that feed the imagination and will still be around for years to come.
We have a huge range of activity books starting from just £2.99, ‘100 Things to Do on a Journey’ is one of our favourites and is perfect for car journeys, long or short.
If you’re driving home for Christmas and need something to keep the little ones in the back entertained, this should buy you a couple of hours peace. Whether or not it stops the debates with the other half on where to have a break is another matter.
Button and Squirt Fact Cards
Did you know the Blacktip Reef Shark can jump fully out of the water? Neither did we.
If you’ve got a shark super fan in the family or a child that’s amazed with animals, these fact cards are a great gift and come in a range of categories. Test each other over the table at Christmas and you never know, you might even pick up some knowledge for your next pub quiz.
Hey Duggee Stacking Game
Hey Duggee has been hugely popular at Little Nutkins this year and we expect that Duggee and the Squirrels will feature on many Christmas lists.
This popular stacking game has 13 chunky wooden figures and is loads of fun, but it’s also a game of skill and will help develop hand and eye co-ordination. Duggee helps us to disguise the learning!
Plan Toys Travel Tins
Our travel tins are small enough to fit in your bag and perfect for on the go entertainment over the festive period. Each tin contains a set of mini wooden pieces which can be used to create shapes, patterns or games, the possibilities are endless. Get creative with your designs or follow the patterns in the leaflet included in the tin. We have a feeling this one might be popular with the big kids at the table too!
Lanka Kade Figures
We’ve saved the best until last. Our Lanka Kade wooden figures are small but perfectly formed and great for stockings, party bags or tree gifts this Christmas. Each one is made from eco-friendly wood and is perfect for small world play and story stacks.
