Christmas is fast approaching so I wanted to give you some quick ideas on the gifts my twin girls are loving this year. However these would be perfect for anytime of the year too. 

Kids Christmas gifts for under £20

*Wonderbly Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket Personalised Book from £19.99 

This book has been a massive hit in our house, it is loved by both adults, teenager and my eight year old twins. It is completely personalised, not just a little bit, not just a page to each letter of the child’s name. But it’s completely personalised to the point that there is a personalised Oompa Loompa song! 

Each page tells a part of their story, and each page builds one more piece of the main story together. The end result….the child has it’s own personalised one-of-a-kind Wonka bar! 

Having twins usually means that the personalised books are pretty similar, but not this one! This would make a lovely gift to any child.  For an extra £2 the book can even have a candy scent applied to it! The kids thought this was amazing. 

The hardback version is £25.99 and softback is £19.99 at time of writing – Check delivery when ordering for timings for Christmas 

Smiggle Pencil Case – £12.50 

My twins received one of these each for their birthday this year, they love it. Large enough to fit a selection of pens, pencils and other bits and bobs in. They can pop these in their rucksacks and not worry about them getting squashed or broken as they are a hardcase style pencil case. 

They could spend a fortune in Smiggle though, as there are so many bright and colourful things to choose from!

*Fingerlings – £14.99 

What a hit these have been! We reviewed these back in July and we loved them instantly. They ended up being taken out with us on many days out, so no wonder they’re one of this years top toys! 

They are cute, interactive and a great priced too. Also keep an eye out, as I have seen them advertise new animals, like sloths and unicorns!

*Itty Bitty Characters – £various

I think these are my new favourite teddies! Itty Bittys are a great selection of teddies made by Hallmark, but they are all characters from films, TV, stories and just generally the most cutest things!! Prices seem to be around £6 each which is a nice price point for presents, and I can just imagine a collection of these all lined up in a little ones room. 

Beauty and The Beast Purse – £various Primark 

I got these for my twins when I was in Primark last time. They are from their Beauty and The Beast range of items, which is growing everytime I go in there! 

These are little purses which they have been using to store little items of things in. They are pretty cute and a great filler present too.

*Insta-Snow – £3.99

If you have been in that tiny bit of the UK which hasn’t had any snow this year then you need to make your own!! Insta-Snow is power and combined with a dash of water you have instant snow! It doesn’t melt or dissolve, so when it drys you can just add a little water again and there’s your snow! 

*LinkIt! – £11.95 

This is a great game by PikyKwiky called LinkIt! For players 2-8 and ages 6+ this is a great travel game, but also great for a quick fun game to play with the kids. This high speed game will make you test your power of observation and to think quickly. One card from one pack contains one symbol that can be linked to another symbol on the any card in the second deck. The first person to find that link wins! 

Kids Watch – £Various 

My daughter loves her watch, she is never without it! You can buy some really lovely watches for kids, but she loves this simple strap, and simple face watch. It’s comfy and perfect for her. 

* Toys – £Various 

I will admit I had never heard of before, however considering this is a huge gaming phenomenon 60% of British 0-14yrs olds have downloaded game, I think I am pretty behind!! 

You can get some cute toys to play with, from blind packs with surprises in, adorable squishies, and plush toys to cuddle.  Mine were pretty excited to unpack these toys! 

*I was sent items marked with a * to consider for the gift guide, all items are things my children love
