This post contains gifted items
Christmas shopping for children is easy. You can pretty much hit the bullseye every time. Children are not exactly backward about coming forward when it comes to declaring their interest in the latest movie or tv characters, are they? and if all fails? slime. Bam. You pretty much nail it every time with slime. When they hit their teens though? Well! You are going to have to get a bit more creative..
Young at heart
So whether they are young or just young at heart, they will love this. A super easy to use Tie Dye kit by Fab Labs! Create unique and trendy clothes and accessories with the new Tie Dye Luxury Kit! There are enough ingredients to dye loads of t-shirts and accessories. Just one of the collectable FabLab kits available from Interplay.
The gorgeous tiny polar bear necklace by Jane Reinhardt would make a great gift for young or old. It might be small but it is perfectly formed.
Handcrafted in the Uk and polished to perfection this one is going to be a surefire hit!
My Dad loved Doctor Who when he was a child.
I haven’t missed an episode since it was revived in the 2000’s, Col loved it and now Moose loves it too. With that in mind, a Doctor Who based gift is a good bet in our family!
We love this Doctor Who desk tidy. The eye-catching stationery holder is an official wooden replica of the Tardis – the Time Lord’s iconic blue police box.
Billed as “the must-have Whovian accessory”, the wooden replica promises to transport your stationary to another dimension (not literally, of course – no pencils will be hurt and/or displaced in time by the purchase of this item!) by offering a unique and fantastical way to store your pens and sonic screwdrivers. It might even be bigger on the inside too, but that would be telling.
Who doesn’t love a surprise? They don’t get much bigger or better than the Amazing Mystery Box! What makes this even better is that this particular box is not actually a mystery. You can opt for a Mystery of course but this particular one, well, let’s see inside, shall we?
Sonic spork. They pretty much had me at sonic spork. As well as this (which would make a good standalone gift to be fair) the not so mystery box is also packed full of loads of other Whovian merch! Coffee mug, figurines, notebooks.. You definitely get your moneys worth here!
I love a cosy pair of slippers and what could be better than a pair of handcrafted Onaie sheepskin slippers? Perfect for the winter months and a versatile gift for young or old.

Dan Fallon is an ex-Royal Navy physical training instructor on a mission. His goal is
to help 5000 Dads across the UK to get fit and lose weight, without meal plans or
shake diets, and the message of his new book is very clear – Start with ONE THING.
It can be so hard to buy for men sometimes but I think that Dans no BS approach would be a popular one with MrG and men like him.

Sometimes simple gifts are the best. This cake in a mug, mug comes with indicators on the inside of the mug to help you make the perfect mug cake!
I think books make great stocking fillers so I make sure to include them every year. When I was a teenager I loved reading my horoscope. It was just a bit of fun and I am carrying it on. I picked mine up from The Card Factory
Freya Fontaine and the winged lion of Aretas. Freya was just a regular eleven-year-old from London until the friend she’d only just met told her something she’d never expected. ”There is buried treasure in Petra Freya, buried golden treasure,” Hiyaam whispered, her dark eyes sparkling with excitement. ”A jewelled winged lion, Freya, and I know where it is.” This Indiana Jones style adventure would make a great gift this Christmas!
Pants and socks are a common Christmas gift but these are pants with a difference!
