Christmas Gift Guide for Kids

It’s the 1st of December…at last it is acceptable to mention the ‘C’ word and what better way to  kick off the festive season than with a gift guide!

In this guide we’re going to take a look at some amazing Christmas gifts that your little ones will love this Christmas.

Irish Fairy Door


Not only is this an Irish Fairy Door, it is a Paint your own Irish Fairy Door which is a brand new addition to the Irish Fairy Door family. This fairy door set is designed in Ireland and sprinkled with real magic, ready for you to decorate before your fairy moves in!

The set includes a Fairy door with a magic key in a cute little bottle, three stepping-stones, the Family / Fairy Lease Agreement, a notebook for your fairy and a Fairy Welcome guide, everything you need to make your Fairy part of the Family.

You can then name your Fairy and register your new friend on the Fairy Workplace Log on their website using your included secret code, where you and your child can enjoy exclusive stories and games directly from Fairy Valley. You can also download the Fairy Valley app for more magical happenings.

My 7-year-old daughter loves this and I love the fact that there’s a magical sense to it. If your child is into the magic of make-believe and fairies then this is the ideal gift for them. This set retails for €24.95 and is  available here. There are lots more wonderful magical gift ideas on the website from Fairy Friend soft toys to their brand new interactive worry plaque. You will definitely find something to suit any imagination.

Matchstick Monkey

Matchstick Monkey are brand new to the market but is already proving to be a popular products for mum’s desperately searching for teething solutions. Matchstick monkey is a teething gel applicator that is made from soft, food-grade silicon in an array of pretty colours that your baby will love.

I’ve been there too many times…Trying to apply teething gel to my baby’s gums, especially towards the back of the mouth, only for him to bite down and sometimes refuse to release. It’s bloody painful, not to mention not being very hygienic, me sticking my fingers into his mouth. Not anymore, this clever little monkey gets teething gels and granules right to the source of the pain and its soft bumps gently massage baby’s gums.

This would make a perfect little gift or stocking filler for any baby. My little boy loves to gnaw on his monkey and the design of the arms makes it so easy for him to grasp. It is both dishwasher and freezer friendly and It’s also  been a great introduction to brushing his teeth.

Matchstick Monkey retails for £9.99 and comes in eight gorgeous colours. Get your hands on your Matchstick Monkey Here

Cheeky Chompers Neckerchew


You may very well have seen these on the UK version of Dragons Den. Say Hello to the Cheeky Chompers Neckerchew. It is in a nutshell a dribble bib with a chewy teether attached to soothe painful little gums. This is such a great idea and has won so many awards including Loved by Parents Gold 2015 and the National Parenting Awards (Ireland) Silver 2015, Pretty Impressive!

I discovered Cheeky Chompers while searching for a nice fashionable bib for my son to wear to an upcoming family wedding but that also wouldn’t look ugly over his nice new outfit. He’s also teething pretty badly at the moment so This was the perfect solution. I chose the design ‘Twinkle Twinkle’ which is a beautiful baby blue with navy stars. It’s gorgeous.

The Neckerchew is such good quality, the material is so soft and thick, there is nothing going to seep trough this onto your baby’s clothes. My little boy always had his regular bib shoved in his mouth so he loved having this as it really seemed to soothe his gums and his bib didn’t end up sopping from drool!

The Neckerchew retails for €15.99 and is available in an array of designs for both boys and girls and would make the perfect Christmas Gift or stocking filler for any teething or soon to be teething little one. You can get yours Here
