Hi there,

I'm cutting back this year - we have four children and they are used to having far too much.

I've got them some really nice things bit they're all small. I need some ideas on big things I can buy which are under 30£. My kids are aged 5,8,10 - boys and girls. Please help - I have barely started yet and my husband's hopeless (currently snoring on the sofa).

I'm happy to be cutting back but still want to create the impression they have some larger items, and the tree doesn't look too bare.

Thanks everyone!!

What sorts of things are they interested in?
You could do arts and craft supplies and bulk it out with a few canvases for them to paint or even an easel for 5yo.

Last year mine (8,5 and 1) got a wooden puppet theatre. I can't remember much of what else they got as the theatre was such a hit.

It was wooden from a charity shop but there are plenty of wood/card ones out there. It's a big (size wise) gift that golds flat.

Thank you!!!! The puppet theatre is absolutely ace!!!!!!! And the easel is also a great idea. Sorted for the 4 year old.

The play mobile Noah's ark comes in absolutely massive box! Might the five year old like that?

Could you put the smaller things in bigger boxes - so they look more?

Do they need beanbags, cushions or throws for their room.
