Last Minute Kids Christmas Gift Ideas

How on earth are we under three weeks away from Christmas? This year I am really happy to say that I am pretty much sorted, however I’m not usually. I thought I’d compile a last minute kids Christmas gift idea post for you guys; I know, too kind right?!

I have been looking at The Works Christmas Shop trying to get some inspiration and there is so much to choose from at really affordable prices, which as a parent of three is music to my ears!

Charlie is going to be 8 at the weekend (sob) so he is now starting to morph into more grown up stuff. He still absolutely loves reading but things like WWE are starting to feature more in his interests along with Harry Potter which ignited after our visit to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter studio tour in the summer.

He loves Diary of a Wimpy Kid books and they are brilliant books for those wanting to expand their reading collections with a good dollop of humour. Christmas isn’t a Christmas without a good annual is it? These Match! books are brilliant as they’re crammed of stats and facts which I know Charlie and his mates love chatting about at lunchtime.

The girls are still Paw Patrol mad (along with a bazillion other kids around their age) and it is really dominating our Christmas gift list. Our recent trip to Disney has also left us wqanting more so these Mickey and Minnie books would make a super stocking filler.

We have a branch about 10 miles away and I will definitely be in there for our final trip at the weekend to get the last few bits and bobs. Happy shopping!
