Let Lilly Likes talk you through some of the better things 2020 has produced…
It’s that time of year again… where mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, grandparents, and weird family friends you call uncle/aunt/auncle, spend hours wondering what to buy their little bundles of joy. Gift giving is difficult. Finding the best in unique gifts for children is even more so. Kids want what their friends have… but why not make life a bit more interesting for them, instead?
That’s right, the same team that brought you Lockdown Take 2 and the Top 10 Advent Calendars of 2020, now present you with the ultimate guide to erm… presents… for the festive season. Let’s face it, this year has been awful. Let’s celebrate the end of it in style.
Today we answer an age-old question pondered by millions, every November paycheque. What on Earth do I get these weans for Christmas?
What do you get a Kid for Christmas?
We tried to answer the all-encompassing Christmas question with a dazzling array of different gifts. Some are out there, some are indoors, but all will bring a smile to little faces on Christmas morning.
Christmas Gifts for The Under 5’s
What do you get an under 5 for Christmas? Try some of these.
The Letter from Santa
This one’s a no-brainer but should be bought in plenty of time for it to arrive – so plan for Christmas now! No pressure.
But seriously, the letter from Santa is a Christmas tradition for the under fives that we can all get behind. This gift pack includes a letter from Santa, a Good List Certificate to ensure they haven’t been naughty, and you even get a Christmas Day text message from the jolly red guy himself. How could you not love this? It’s adorable.
The Tell Storytelling App
We mentioned this before so we will keep it brief, but this is one excellent subscription for kids of all shapes and sizes. Why? It not only contains an online database of all your beloved bedtime stories, but it also allows you to create and upload your own stories, designed by your child, with them as the main character. Pretty cool, huh?
You can read more about the Tell Storytelling App here. We encourage you to consider it seriously, though. Kids get so much from reading and creativity like this is hard to come by in a digital world.
Christmas Gifts for Ages 5-10
This age group are starting to interpret the world they are exploring at an increasing rate. Here’s what to buy the 2020 surviving 5 – 10 year old for Christmas…
Piggie Pet and Play
What kiddie around the six year old mark doesn’t enjoy a petting zoo? You can gift a voucher to your favourite family so that they can go along and experience a Piggie Pet and Play of their own. the voucher covers two or four people and under 3s go free. They have those little ickle tiny pigs with the squishy noses and the cuteness overload… Check it out. It’s the perfect Christmas gift for a young family or for kiddies under 10. This one is valid until May 2021.
What to Buy a 10-16 Year old for Christmas?
It’s not as difficult an age group as you might think. Try some of these suggestions on for size…
Why not treat the angsty pre-teen in your life to a teen fashion makeover and photoshoot? This package is a great way to perk up their confidence and give them something to cringe at when they hit forty. Can you imagine looking back at a fashionable photo of yourself in the nineties?
With the teen fashion photo shoot and makeover, you are giving the gift of cringe. Use it wisely.
Junior Driving Experience
Did you know that you can buy junior driving experiences? Truly. Choose between a few different supercars, between the number of laps you would like, and for how many kids you want to send on this awesome adventure. The only catch is that your need-for-speed kids have to be over ten years old. Otherwise, check out the Junior Driving Experience and get clicking.
Did we mention it is valid until March 2022? And if you want to kick it u[ a notch, there’s a superhero themed option, too.
Bonus Round: Mum and Dad
Just to top it off, why not throw in a few prints with a photographer in a family photo shoot. Valid until June 2021, your chosen family can head on down to a London-based studio to get a family photograph taken. This particular deal features a pro photographer and three prints, allowing your family of choice to have a token to remember both your gift, and a cherished Christmas moment with one another.
What better way to please the in-laws or young family in your life? Not into photo shoots? What about sending them off on a spa day for two, where they can be pampered till their hearts are content. The real treat, of course, will be if you babysit for the day while they get relaxing with a hot stone massage and a bottle of bubbles.
This deal is valid for 6 months, so you can give your parents, siblings, aunts, uncles – whoever – a day at the 5 star St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. They have a steam kitchen, a Victorian tiled pool, and an in-house gym. Relaxing in opulence has never been as fun as it is with Lilly Likes.
