My daughters are at a tricky age for gift buying. They’re less into dolls and role play type games, although they do still enjoy a good game of school on occasion, I try to avoid screen time where possible so tablets are not an option and they’re still at an age where clothes are a necessity rather something to be bought for pleasure. It’s taken me a while but I’ve searched around the internet and found some brilliant products that are slightly grown up, but also fun enough for two little girl, so hopefully we’ll have some surprises and big smiles on Christmas Day.
Little Rockerz Headphones -IFROGZ
We have constant arguments in the car about what music to listen to, so I thought headphones would allow them to listen to their own music and give me a bit of peace and quiet, which is often much needed. Or if they need a bit of quiet time in the day they can disappear to their room and listen to music or an audiobook.
The Little Rockerz Costume headphones have a volume limiter for safe listening and a 1.2m coiled cable for safety. The ear pads are soft and comfortable and the buddy jack allows children to share devices. There are 5 different options available. We especially love the panda!
I find with 3 children we need quick, fast paced games to stop everyone getting bored. Dobble is easy enough for all of them to play and fun at the same time.
HAMA beads are available for every theme you can imagine. I’ve ordered the space set for one daughter and the magical horses set for another.
There are lots of lovely sewing kits available. We especially love the Gift in a Tin ones, or John Lewis has a great selection of Buttonbag sewing kits for kids.
We’re big fans of FIMO. I remember using it to make a Mother’s Day badge at Brownies many years ago, so LOVE seeing my children create with it too. There are lots of fantastic inexpensive FIMO kits available.

These are really great gift ideas! Kids nowadays are very ‘techie’ and having this list would definitely make gift shopping easier 🙂 Headphones are in demand, my nephew is requesting for one this Christmas. I am considering Little Rockerz. It’s good to know that these headphones have a volume limiter, it’s very important that we take this in consideration for kids’ hearing safety.
I’m glad you put this article together, thanks!
This is a very nice blog about gift ideas for our little ones. My son’s birthday is very soon so I’m looking for a special gift. He is 6 years old and he will be 7 in 10 days. I started searching little late but this list saved my life! 😀 I think I will get him a Mi-Mic Microphone. My son loves to sing and this will be perfect for him!
What are the experiences with a Mi-Mic Microphone?
Emma, I agree headphones are an excellent gift for children. Over the years of buying tons of headphones for my daughters, I have noticed https://workhabor.com/they don’t like dealing with cables, so I would recommend one to go for Bluetooth headphones instead. They are convenient and last longer. Great tips you got here. Thanks
