    Default Christmas Gift Ideas

    I'm really struggling with Christmas gift ideas for my best friends boy, he will be around 18 months this Christmas. Any suggestions?

    How much do you want to spend?

    I think 18 months is a lovely age to set a child up with beautiful books. Do you have an author who is really special to you? We did this for our closest friend's child when she was around that age. We bought about 6 Anthony Brown books as they had meant so much to our children.

    Depending on your budget: fisher price little people, sand/water table, books, kinetic sand, art/craft supplies, duplo lego

    Also if the parents follow a sports team maybe a junior size jersey.

    My 18 month old a getting duplo, little people sets, schleich farm animals, board books & a sand pit.

    Duplo is great as you can add on to your collection and it lasts forever

    identity direct do personalised books which I think are a really lovely gift for a child.

    You fill in details and they write a story about the child ...

    Around that age my ds liked:

    Wooden Wagon with blocks tgat you can push around

    Train track

    Cars

    Noisy stuff with buttons


    And books are good for story time even though at that age they may not show much interest but will later.
