Here is some inspiration of gifts for boys (or girls) aged around 4-5. I was really stuck buying for Freddie this year, he already had a backlog of four years worth of presents so the inspiration was definitely lacking. We have had a good clear out in time for Father Christmas’s arrival. Hopefully these gift ideas may give you a bit of a brainwave if ideas to include for the big day. I know Freddie is going to love them!
Aluminium Drinks Bottle
I know this is a super practical gift but Freddie has a thing with water bottles (he loves them, but also manages to break them frequently) like most school children he has to have a bottle, so I know he will use it. This bottle will appeal to him greatly as it has a big F which he can recognise and asp his name in lovely easy to read letters, so an added bonus of it not being ‘adopted’ by another child! You can get a personalised bottle here
Fro systems Renegades mini BMX
Fred loves all things Skateboarding and BMXing and so he lost his tiny mind when he saw his new BMX from Fro Systems. Available in two colour ways (we chose monochrome) with ten inch rims and is made from aluminium and steel it’s robust but also light enough for him to use easily. He needs to get used to the aspect of not having stabilisers but he cannot wait to get up and do some stunts on it. It’s a really impressive gift and he’s absolutely made up. I don’t feel like the BMX is expensive really in the scheme of things it’s perfect for Freddie’s first stunt bike
What I love most about Christmas is having some traditional aspects about it. Freddie and the rest of my family love a cuddly toy and so this Grey Gust Reindeer from Build-a-Bear is simply someone who has to come and live with us. With his grey velvety soft fur, shiny black antlers and Hooves and even his little red hitops he’s the perfect guy to come and share Christmas and the rest of the year with you and your family. As with all BABs he is completely personalisable with sounds, clothes and even scents and it’s perfect to come out every Christmas to remind you of the year that you got your first Build-A-Bear
Disney Guess The Film
Christmas is about board games and luckily Freddie has been learning how to play some at school so I thought it was a perfect time for him to get his very first game for at home. As he loves Disney films this was an easy way to get him recognising pictures whilst learning the simple rules of the game which is very easy to play – first person to collect for Mickey tokens is the winner. There are over 100 different Disney images images so there are plenty of opportunities for you to beat your opponents. You can find the film at Amazon
