Finding the perfect gift year after year can be a real struggle, especially at the last minute! As a busy, working Mum of two little ones I can certainly relate. There is nothing more rewarding than watching smiles grow on their little faces and receiving warm thank you hugs after they open presents they can’t wait to play with! Below is a list of 5 cost-effective and imaginative gifts the kids are guaranteed to love!

LEGO® 3-in-1 Adventure Vehicles Set
Enjoy land, air and water adventures with the awesome 3-in-1 LEGO® Creator Adventure Vehicles set! Have fun building the tough off-roader, with its green, white and black colour scheme, cool, working winch and hook mechanism, opening doors, chunky deep-tread tires, ultra-high fenders, sturdy bull bar and orange warning beacons. It even has tool kit and fire extinguisher elements, plus a removable roof and doors for a more rugged look! Get behind the wheel and put this heavy-duty vehicle through its paces, drive over rocks, mud and rutted trails! When you’re done off-roading, rebuild it to create an awesome hovercraft or a high-speed helicopter for even more fun adventures!
$29.00 – Target®
If your girls love to dress up and dance around the house, this is the perfect gift! I came up with this concept whilst writing the blog and think it would be a lovely gift for any young girl to receive and a fun little hamper to arrange yourself!
You will need:
A wicker basket (most $2 shops will stock these)
A tulle tutu (homemade or purchased)
Ribbon – Tulle pom pom wand – $6.95 – https://littleginger.com.au/product/pastel-pink-pom-pomtulle-wands/
Ribbon wand – $6.95 – https://littleginger.com.au/product/ribbon-wand-pastel-pink-withbell/
Pink felt crown – $8 – https://littleginger.com.au/product/pink-felt-crown/
Place the tutu around the top of the basket to achieve the look shown in the image. You may require a length of ribbon or string to fasten. Using the ribbon, cover the handle of the basket and neatly tape the ends to the base of the handle. Then all that is left to do is fill the basket with your little ballerina costume goodies! A nice little extra touch is a few sprays of a sweet or floral perfume to give the basket a lovely, girly scent
Frozen ™ Inflatable Ball Pit
A fantastic, super fun little play hut for both indoor and outdoor use! The kids will be active and entertained for hours on end. The kit comes with 15 soft flex balls, which are perfect to play shoot the hoop!
$29 – Target.
We hope you have all your Christmas shopping done or well underway, so pleased that my mini me came and helped for our last minute family gifts and that we have made some of our own this year for them too… now to finish the wrapping!
