10 Christmas Gift ideas for pre-schoolers

10 Christmas Gift ideas for pre-schoolers

With Christmas Day just weeks away and Black Friday on the horizon, I've started thinking about what to get our two (aged 3.5 and 22 months). 

So I'm sharing my top 10 gifts for pre-schoolers from a mix of High Street and independent shops. Happy shopping!

1. Princess Tower Playset - My eldest shrieked in the store when she saw this the other day and it went immediately to the top of her Christmas List. What's great about it is that it is neatly folds up and is portable. Marks & Spencer £30

2. Buddy & Bear Personalised prints - I first spotted the gorgeous Buddy & Bear on instagram. The UK company does a wonderful set of kitchenware for children. Now they are offering personalised prints and just look at how adorable they are! Buddy & Bear print from £30

3. Space Pyjamas - Not only are these pyjamas space-themed, they also Glow in the dark. They come in ages 2-12 and are available from John Lewis from £22 - £24

4. Disney X Cath Kidston backpack - Disney has teamed up with Cath Kidston to offer a magical Peter Pan themed collection. Many of the items sold out quickly but are now back in stock, including this Peter Pan backpack, perfect for young children. Cath Kidston - £30

5. Lego Duplo Family House - One of the biggest hits in our seemingly endless toy collection is a Lego Duplo house. Our two girls treat it like a dollhouse and love creating scenes with any of their little figure toys. It's sturdy, you can change the configuration and its covers the toddler into preschool years. Lego store £39.99

6. Three Wise Men Christmas Biscuit CardThis is such a great idea if you'd rather avoid toys and clothes. We received one of these beautifully handmade biscuits in the post last year in The Snowman theme. Our little girl's face lit up when she opened the box and discovered a large biscuit just for her. From Biscuiteers £10.95

7. Yellow Rain Mac - There's something timeless and adorable about one of these yellow fisherman style macs. I was on the lookout for one for our 3 year-old and discovered Dorothy Perkins do a kids range online (it launched in July). This jacket comes in ages 18 months to six years old. Dorothy Perkins £22

8. Little London playset - Including The Shard, The Globe Theatre, Tower Bridge and St Paul's, this Little London Playset is perfect for introducing them to the city. Jojo Mama Bebe £15

9. Hopster kids appPacked full of TV shows, games, lullabies and nursery rhymes, the Hopster App (aimed at 2-6 year-olds) is a safe space for pre-schoolers to explore and learn. We downloaded the app last week and our 3 year old has already discovered her favourite songs and shows. There's a 7 day free trial, a great chance to see how your little one gets on with it. Hopster subscription from £3.99 a month

10. Disney Classics DVD Collection - All the favourites are here as part of this classics collection.  DVDs from £3.99 at HMV
