With Christmas fast approaching I decided to put together a few gift guides to help you get started (or finished) with your Christmas shopping. This Gift Guide covers all of my Christmas Gift Ideas for our little ones (ranging from 1-4 years old).

If you have been following me for some time now you will no doubt know how much I love Amazon. And if you’re new here, be warned…I am a total Amazon addict. I literally buy everything from Amazon. Christmas presents are no exception. Some of the options I have listed below can be found on Amazon whilst others directly on the retailer’s sites.
For more gift guide ideas head over to my Amazon Storefront (US) (UK site) as I will be updating my storefronts regularly. And if you’re not an Amazon Prime member then here are my top reasons as to why you should be!
To make things simple – here are the links for my US readers and UK readers.
NOW – here are some great Christmas Gift Guide Ideas for your toddlers and kids:
I absolutely love Playmobil and their cute little toy sets. They have different options both for girls and boys and lots of choices when it comes to the type of play for example Princess Castles, City building, Zoo, Cafes and more. The figurines are made of good quality and most of the sets are easy to put together. You are sure to find something suitable for your child from Playmobil. The more complicated sets (with smaller pieces) are for kids over 3 I would say but there are quite a few “my First” series sets that are for children over 1.5 years.
My boys have been playing around with the Firetruck Set* and the Police Car Set* lately and have been loving them. The Firetruck was a little harder to put together as there are smaller pieces and quite a few of them, but the Police car set was no problem. I love the detail on all the parts too. For Christmas, Playmobil has some great Advent Calendar options if you’re looking for such Christmas gifts for your children.

As a Professional Home Organiser, I try to limit the number of toys we have at home as I am not a fan of clutter if I am honest. I prefer to implement a “one-in-one-out” rule so that we don’t end up having toys upon toys. Let’s be honest the more toys they have, the less they play with them. Am right or Am I right? So my favourite type of toys or Christmas gifts has to be educational toys.
With educational toys, children get the excitement of receiving a great gift but at the same time, they are learning something.
Here are a few options you can look through:

Another favourite category of Christmas Gifts that you can give to your children (of all ages) books. Reading sparks imagination whilst developing language skills and learning to calm down, unwind and have the patience to go through a whole book. These are all amazing traits to teach your little ones.
One of my go-to online shops for ordering books has to be Books2Door who send book sets straight to your door anywhere in the UK. And their prices are great. This year we went for the Peppa Pig Collection for my pre-schooler who loves Peppa Pig stories at the moment, and the My First Words book set for my 2-year-old. I cannot wait to see their little faces Christmas morning and no doubt they will bicker over who gets which books when they open them up.
If you’re looking to buy books for your children this Christmas then I highly suggest checking out Books2Door.

BONUS: Toy Organisation Tips
One of the ways I like to organise my toys in our living room is using the Ikea Trofast system. It’s amazing as every category of toys has its own home. And the best part is that the boys have memorised the exact location for each category. Plus the handy pull out boxes contains the items very well allowing for an easier tidy-up afterwards.
Another tip for toy organization is to declutter regularly. I would say every month at least. Take a day to gather ALL of the toys in the house, go through them all separating them into “keep”, “donate” “trash”. Then categorise the keep items into like with like groups. This way you keep only what you love (and use) and the rest go to a good home or to storage for another season.
