Christmas Gift Ideas for Under 5s | Christmas 2021

It's that time of year again when I can finally start sharing all things Christmas! And after last year's festive period being so different and disappointing, I think I'm going to try and make this year as Christmassy and special as ever! For my second Christmas Gift Guide this year I'm going to be sharing some products that I think would make gifts for younger children - babies up to age 5. Hopefully this gives you some inspiration this festive season.

Magnetic Dress Up Toy

I wrote about Wicked Uncle and the fab gifts they have for older children a few weeks ago, but they also do amazing gifts for little ones too. The fun magnetic set from Floss & Rock comes with two wooden figures (a unicorn and a dragon) plus 40 magnetic pieces to dress them up for their adventures! There's even a reversible scene included to really get your children's imaginations buzzing. These sets also come in different themes such as dinosaurs and pets!

Baby Bare Bubbles Toiletries

These gorgeous toiletries from award-winning skincare line Baby Bare Bubbles would make a great gift for a younger baby. Their luxury baby and toddler products are dermatologically tested and paediatrician approved, and only use high quality ingredients. I received this gorgeous wash-care set that includes a supersoft hooded bamboo baby towel, a washcloth, and a bottle of their bubble bath, shampoo and body wash all-in-one. The bath towels are incredibly soft, and the bath product is "rich in vitamins, shea butter to help nourish, soothe and deliver moisture, avocado oil to help protect your baby's skin barrier, oats to calm irritated skin and lock in moisture, dandelion and purple coneflower for their natural healing properties" - such a lovely gift for a new baby.

Orchard Toys Games

I honestly think you can never have enough Orchard Toys products! They have such a big range of fun and educational games for a whole range of ages, and they are such good quality so last a long time too - plus Orchard Toys will also replace a certain amount of lost pieces from games which is such a lovely service! We received the Christmas Eve Box which contains both a fun game and a puzzle, as well as the Pigs in Blankets pairs style game. Our three are aged 3 - 8 and all of them enjoy these games which I think is so rare with games, so I would 100% recommend adding these to your children's Christmas lists this year.

Super Sand

Supersand is the original modelling sand made in Europe from natural materials. The unique formula is super soft and the best part is that it doesn't dry out! This allows little ones to create and make again and again, using the mould included with the sets (or free-style with their imagination). This original set contains classic shapes to make cones, cubes and more. The sand is non-staining and sticks to itself to help make the clean up process easier for us grown ups too.

Jaques of London Wooden Toys

We absolutely love wooden toys in our house, so I was over the moon to receive these items from local company Jaques of London. They the oldest games company and sports manufacturer in the world, that has been passed down from father to son for eight generations! Use this code here to receive 15% off your order.

The first product we received was the super sweet Dinosaur Car Park. The car park track itself is made entirely out of wood, and the set also includes 4 wooden cars and 6 colourful dinosaur toys. Not only is the product sturdy and well-made, but it's so bright and eye-catching too. The design of the track introduces children to early physics through observations of forces, movement and the effect of gravity. A great toy for imaginative play and a great size for little hands!

The second product we received was the Toolkit & Bench Wooden Construction Toy. The wooden bench contains everything needed for little hands to get their hands busy and moving. Children can develop their fine motor skills when using the tools to turn screws or hammer bolts - a great toy for little ones to develop their imagination as well. Once again the toy is well-made and of really high quality, and it comes beautifully presented in it's box with a ribbon. 

Frugi Pyjamas

A brand new pair of cosy pyjamas would make such a lovely gift for a younger (or older!) child, and Frugi have such a lovely selection to choose from this year. Made from GOTS certified organic cotton, Frugi's clothing is super soft and of such high quality. The sleeves and trousers are cuffed to keep little ones super warm and snug, and they've even thought to print the label straight onto the product to stop any scratchy labels.  My favourite part of Frugi's clothing though is just how bright and colourful their designs are - they really do have something for everyone!

Headu and Ecoplay Games

Headu is an educational toys and games company based in Italy, and they have a fantastic range of items that under 5s would love this Christmas. Their games, puzzles and toys are made with high quality materials, and have been designed to help promote, develop and harness your little one's natural talents through play. I love that you can see what skills your little one is learning just by looking on the front of the box, and just how colourful and bright they are too! Headu have also created a new range called Ecoplay, which is full of eco-friendly, artistic toys for little ones.

The How We are Made game gets children to fit cards in to their matching slots to discover the parts of the body, senses, facial expressions are more. The Play Farm set teachers children about animals and their environment - an open game for learning and fun. 

Doddl Children's Cutlery + Accessories

A great practical gift for under 5s are these sets from Doddl. Their Cutlery Sets were specially designed to help children learn to use cutlery, as well as helping them to develop crucial motor skills along the way! We used their cutlery set when our youngest was weaning and saw first hand how much easier they are for little hands to hold and grip. The sets are available in green, pink and purple. Their Children's Plates have been designed to make little ones feel as is they are using a grown up plate, but with practical elements included - the back is slightly raised and the front is wider to help keep food ON the plate, and the bottom is grippy so it stays in place!
