Help, I haven't even started Christmas shopping, I'm trying to write a list (on Amazon). There are a few small children, grandchildren age 3 months and 18 months, niece age 3 and nephew age 5 to buy for. Haven't got a clue what to buy them, budget around £10-£15 each. Any ideas?

For little ones the is a galt pop up toy on amazon £8 ish that is lovely. Or a posting pig- Fisher price I think, that I know many little ones adore. For your niece- play dough set, a playmobil 123 set there are some in your price range on amazon. And nephew?? What sorts of things is he into I think at 5 their tastes can very considerably so may need a bit more info??

Do you have any idea what they might like? If not, these are things that my 11yo and 4yo over the years. Hopefully inspire some ideas smile

Clip on book for 3 month old.

Sensory sound blocks for the 18 month old.

Stick on bath dinosaurs for 3 year old.

Paint your own moneybox for 5 year old.

Thank you, I think my neice would like playdough, my nephew likes Star Wars but no idea what he already has. The two grandchildren have loads of toys already (big family, lots of hand me downs).

Love those sensory sound blocks!
Maybe if they have lots of toys something personalised to them or a first Christmas thing- bauble, bib, teddy?
Can you ask their parents what might be most beneficial maybe clothes etc at such a young age or books?

I would second play doh for children across those age ranges. Both my 2yo and nearly 5 yo love it and have asked for it for Christmas.

When buying for these ages, for children whose interests au do not really know, I tend to do play doh, Mega sketchers or books.
