Christmas Present Ideas

Hey homies!

Ok, so I know probably most of you are WAY more organised than me and have your Christmas shopping already sorted (because no one likes a cray cray pre-Christmas mall… No thank you!) but just in case you haven’t and are having a panic moment, I’ve collated a list of potential present ideas for your kiddies.  I’ve split them into “preschool” “school aged” and “teen”, but haven’t bothered specifying genders because, you know, kids are kids.

These vary greatly from stocking stuffer ideas to major presents; partly because everyone has different budgets, but mostly because I do not have the brain power right now to section into even more specific lists – so don’t be alarmed that I’ve put “marbles” next to “trampoline”.  It’s pure writing laziness.  I know you’ll forgive me – it is Christmas after all!
