Christmas Gift Guide for 5 Year Olds | Christmas 2018



Looking for Christmas gifts this year for Indiana has been a whole lot easier than previous years. I feel like a whole new selection of gifts open up once they turn 5 / start school. I have put together a collection of gift ideas for 5 year olds this year, that I hope will give you some inspiration this festive season!

Indiana absolutely loves playing games and doing fun activities when at home, and a favourite in our household is Orchard Toys games. We have a whole collection (and love to gift them for birthday parties too!), so I know she's going to be really excited to receive Giraffes in Scarves this year.

Designed for children ages 4 to 7, Giraffes in Scarves offers the perfect balance between learning and fun! The aim of the game is to collect as many scarves as possible for your giraffe, all while using colouring matching and counting skills. I know I can't wait to play!


Indie got her very first Fingerling for her birthday last year, so I know she's going to be absolutely thrilled to add some more to her collection. The Fingerlings range has exploded and now you can get dragons, unicorns, pandas and even twin packs featuring 'mini BFFs'!

Fingerling monkeys have two special sensors on top of their heads. By tapping either once or twice on either side, you can trigger a variety of different reactions, including noises, movements and Indie's favourite is when they blow you kisses.

Totes Isotoner Slippers

There's nothing better than getting cosy and warm over the chillier months, so I know Indiana is going to absolutely love these slippers from Totes Isotoner. Plus they're a unicorn design - so that's a double win! They are lovely and soft and have a non-slip grip on the bottom too. And I love that they're machine washable too, as this is a must for children's clothing!

Itty Bittys

We are a Disney obsessed household, and ever since we went to Disneyland back in March, the littles have wanted more cuddly versions of their favourite characters. These super sweet Itty Bittys from Hallmark are the perfect way to bring our favourite characters into the house, and will be a perfect stocking filler for Indiana! They're super-cute and small enough to take out and about - and best of all there are SO many different collections if you aren't a Disney fan (including Star Wars, Marvel and beloved TV characters). I already want them all!

Personally Presented - Personalised Unicorn Apron

I love giving special gifts to the littles. Ones that aren't just your average item that everyone will have. Personally Presented have over 1000 personalised gifts for all special occasions and personalities. We received this lovely personalised unicorn apron, which I know Indiana is going to love. She loves baking, and I know she's going to feel extra special doing it with this apron on. It also features unicorns and rainbows, so that's another bonus!

So Glow Mini Jar Kit from Canal Toys

We recently had Indie's first parents evening, where her teachers described her as very creative and always busy - and we couldn't agree more! So this Magic Jar Mini Kit from So Glow DIY is going to be  the perfect gift for her. She can create her very own colour-change mood light (with a little help from me) at home. You can decorate the jar, mix the glitter and confetti with the special So Glow powder, and even add the special surprise collectable figure. A great gift if you 5 year old is creative and into crafting like mine.

As mentioned above, Indie is really into creative activities. This My Mermaid Lagoon set is going to be another great gift for her (especially as she's been asking for it all year!). You can create you own magical mermaid world by moulding, sculpting and playing with the glittery magic sand. Corals, shells, and other accessories are also included to create a beautiful and fun scene. Indie is going to love that she can take her mermaid around with her too, as the little clamshell she comes with fits into your pocket!

My Fairy Garden - Fairy Light Garden

Another gift Indiana has been asking for since last Christmas in a My Fairy Garden set, so I know she's going to be thrilled with this Fairy Light Garden. The set comes with everything you need to create a magical fairy garden, including a mushroom house (that lights up and plays music!), grass seeds to grow a lawn, characters and lots of accessories. Of course indie will need some grown up help with this too, but it's such a lovely gift for a little girl (or boy!) who loves magic and fairies.


Just like Parker, Indiana absolutely loves to go out on her scooter too. This pink Scootaseatz is such a fun addition to her scooter, and means she can take her baby doll or cuddly toy out for a ride with her! The seat is really easy to attach and can be used with all scooter brands and some bikes and trikes.

This guide contains items I have been gifted in exchange for being featured. However all opinions are honest and my own.
