On a recent shopping trip to buy children’s gifts for a friends newborn and four year old, I realised I was a little out of practice and quite frankly out of my depth! With such a massive selection of children’s toys, games and baby clothing to choose from – where do you start?
If you find yourself in the same predicament, then why not take a look at our list of popular gifts for children under the age of five to give yourself some inspiration before you start shopping.
For newborn babies you really cannot go wrong with a cute and cuddly soft toy such as a FLATOUT Bear. Made in 100% Sheepskin and featuring baby safe eyes, these gorgeous teddy bears are available in a range of different colours and two different sizes.
As they start to get a little bit older and those teeth start coming through, a teething toy such as Sophie the Giraffe would make a wonderful children’s gift idea. France’s most favourite toy for almost 50 years, Sophie is also popular in the UK and has picked up many awards over the years.
Building blocks are both fun to play with and educational, so they are the perfect gift for younger children. Djeco stacking cubes consists of 10 beautifully illustrated blocks that feature a variety of different colours and designs. Suitable for kids aged 12+ months, this set would make a lovely children’s gift.
Once the kids are mobile, there is no stopping them so to help them stay on their feet why not treat your little ones to a gorgeous Hobby Horse. Based on a traditional design, the wooden Hobby Horse in the Egmont collection is suitable for children aged 3 years+ and guarantees hours of fun and entertainment.
A modern twist on the traditional dolls house, this ‘mobile home’ by Kidsonroof would make a great birthday gift for any child. Made in recycled cardboard this lightweight structure is easy to move from one room to another, and features eight different rooms for all your favourite teddies and dolls.
