Even Santa would be proud of this Christmas gift list

Nothing warms your heart more than the excitement on a kid’s face while opening their gifts on Christmas Day. Whether the gift is from Santa, yourself or a family member, the pure joy and gratefulness they project is truly something special.

Whether you are buying for your own child, or a niece, nephew, brother, sister, cousin; one struggle we have every year is limiting how many presents we buy for them. All of a sudden EVERYTHING is the perfect gift – ‘they’ll love this’, ‘they’ll grow into this’, ‘ooo, this will entertain them for hours’. Sound familiar?

Something that has become increasingly popular over the past few years is categorizing kid’s gifts into four groups – something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read. We aren’t saying that you need to get something from all four groups, but it helps to have a guide – Christmas shopping is a crazy time of year in its own regard. Have a look at our suggestions below, we are sure the kids will love any of them!
