CHRISTMAS: Gift Guide for Children £10 and Under

CHRISTMAS: Gift Guide for Children £10 and Under
*Advertorial Content - Gifted Items 
If you're listening Father Christmas, this is the Gift Guide for you! It is filled with stocking filler ideas that will keep children entertained, excited and learning new skills over the festive season. From edible treats and stationary heaven to learning new magic tricks and imaginative play, there are affordable ideas for all interests. These presents would also be perfect for children to give their friends and I've tried to include gifts suitable for a range of ages too. 

Is anyone else's child obsessed with scented stationary? Isabella loves anything scented, so this Sleepy Sprouts Scented Markers and Glitter Glue Pack is perfect for her. Each marker has a Sleepy Sprouts name on, while the matching glitter glue transform drawings into a sparkly creation. There are twelve markers and twelve glitter glues in the pack, so children can channel their creativity using the wide range of colours. Glitter glue is also a parents saviour because it is a much less messy version of glitter; all the sparkle without the awful mess!
Make bath time fun with these cute bath mitts that will not only encourage children to wash themselves, but also double up as puppets too. They are 100% cotton, machine washable and are big enough for an adults hand, so are suitable for children who need to be washed too. Cookie the Cat and Bonnie the Bunny are popular characters that have their own complete collections available at Rex London, from umbrellas to backpacks, napkins to socks and stationary to tableware. You'll also find Miko the Panda available as a bath mitt too. 
This isn't just any notebook; this notebook is lockable, come with a special spy pen and can be filled with all the secret notes. The spy pen adds a fun twist to writing and the perfect way to entice reluctant writers to practice such an important skill. The clear pen means that notes can't be seen, that is until the light is shined over the page and like magic your writing appears. Smiggle have a range of spy pens available seperately, as well as a purple patterned and black spy control centre versions of this Spy Lockable Notebook. 
Magic Tricks (£2) from PoundToy 
Learning magic tricks isn't only seriously impressive, but a fun screen-free activity for children to enjoy. PoundToy have a range of Magic Tricks sets (sent at random) that are very affordable and have everything needed to learn fifteen different tricks. The instruction sheet included has all of the tips and tricks on how to perform the magic tricks in a convincing and confident manner to your audience. Magic Tricks are an ideal stocking filler or gift for your children's friends this Christmas.
Do you have a little one who loves being creative or wearing jewellery or even better, both? Then this is the gift for them - the Shrink Me Jewellery Kit from Smiggle. It's a really unique gift that allows children to design, make and create their own jewellery, which is then shrunk down to the perfect size. Inside the Kit you'll find: 23 jump rings, 18 shrink me designs, 8 mini colouring pencils, 5 shrink me rings, 2 earring hoops, 1 link bracelet and 1 necklace with closure. There are hours of fun to be had colouring in the designs and then proudly wearing their own creations.
Bring a unicorn to life with this Hatching Baby Unicorn Egg; simply place the egg in water and watch what happens! The egg will begin to crack, as the unicorn inside gets bigger. Once the egg is completely cracked you'll need to replace the water, remove an excess shell and leave the baby unicorn in the fresh water for a few days to let it grow. It's such a fun activity for unicorn lovers and will have children engaged for days. 
Toy Kettle and Toy Blender (£9.99 each) from Nuby 
Nuby have recently launched a range of interactive activity toys, including this Toy Kettle and Blender. They have fun bright colours, light up, are musical and easy to hold for small hands. These are both exciting additions to a play kitchen, as they encourage imagination and pretend play. When little ones press the buttons on the Toy Kettle they'll hear bubbling water sounds, lights will display and music will play, which will keep them entertained for hours. The Toy Blender is really engaging for toddlers beause when you press the button once music plays and when it is pressed twice the beads swirl around the blender. Both of these toys are recommended for 18 months plus and are such fun stocking fillers for younger children this Christmas. 
Who remembers painting by numbers from their own childhood? I remember spending hours carefully painting each section, only to reveal a beautiful piece of art days later. The Creative Kids Unicorn Dreams Paint by Numbers is a really generous size, comes with ten sparkly glitter paints and a paintbrush to complete your painting. The numbered sections are quite small, so this is ideal for slightly older children.
Build and race your own set of gliders with this Speed Squad DIY Kit from Smiggle. You have four pre designed planes and two colour yourself planes, so your little ones can either get flying straight away or take their time colouring in their own plane first. The Kit also includes nose clips, elastic bands and launchers to really get the planes gliding through the air at speed, while the nose clips help to protect them when they land!
An absolute essential at Christmas; the Cadbury Christmas Selection Box has been around for generations and goes hand-in-hand with the festive period. Inside this Selection Box you'll find five classic chocolates, including Fudge, Freddo, Chocolate Buttons, Curly Whirly and Chomp. These make a perfect little gift for your children to give their friends or as a stocking filler to be opened on Christmas Day. 
Snap has to be one of the most nostalgic card games that is still loved by children today. This pack of Children's Snap Cards from Rex London is filled with bright, colourful designs that are simple enough for younger children to enjoy playing with too. Inside you'll find 36 cards that match in pairs, so is the perfect set to teach your children how to play snap. They are also travel-friendly, ideal for taking on meals out or when visiting family/friends due to their compact packaging. 
Bring the magical world of bath bombs to children with these deliciously scented Baff Bombz. The bath bombs are skin-friendly, drain safe, stain free and each one has a different scent, including apple, grape, strawberry and tutti frutti. They make bath time exciting, as your little one watches in fascination as the bath bomb fizzes away releasing the aroma and transforming the bath water into different colours.
Chocolate coins are a staple in children's stockings nationwide, but also make for a fun treasure hunt, imaginative play or got filling Christmas Eve Boxes. This bag of Bonds Milk Chocolate Coins contains thirteen pieces of milk chocolate with red and gold foil coatings that look like real coins. Whether these go in the bottom of stockings, hidden around the house as a fun Christmas Eve activity or a festive treat on the run up to the big day, they are guaranteed to raise a smile. 
I have a range of gift guides for this festive season, including Grown UpsGrown Ups £20 and Under and an Advent Calendar Guide for the Whole Family if you're in need of some more inspiration.
