Family Christmas Gifts Guide. Hello everyone, welcome to my family Christmas Gifts Guide Page. Christmas is here, and I know you are all shopping for presents for loved ones and family members. Honestly, I don’t know what I will get for the family this year. Luckily my family are not as fussed as I am about presents.
When it comes to Christmas Gifts, I always want them to be something simple, unique, and meaningful. Something you will use, not just to look at for a few days/months and then it goes to the bin! I also try to budget how many people deserve a present based on how much I can afford.
Well, it’s Christmas at the end of the day. So I suppose everyone deserves a gift from you. Not exactly, if you think about it correctly. If you are struggling and have to budget, there’s no need to buy a gift for a family member you have not seen or heard from in the last 12 months.
Things To Do Before You Start Christmas Shopping
Planning is essential when buying your gifts. It would help if you decided on a couple of things before shopping. The last thing you want is to be left broke and start the New Year empty-handed because you have spent all your money on gifts.

FOR SMALLER CHILDREN (age three upwards)
Little Hands Learning
A great alternative to the usual plastic offerings that often end up in the bin before winter. Little Hands Learning boxes can be bought as a one-off or monthly subscription. They are inspired by the magic of books and designed to allow the recipient to develop a love of reading. Each box includes a colourful book and everything needed for fun, hands-on activities, all linked to that book. This makes it easy for adults to set up an active play and allows children to learn while bringing the book to life.
Little Hands Learning boxes are eco-friendly and provide teacher-designed activities that children can share with parents, grandparents and other favourite grown-ups.
Prices start at £21
FOR OLDER CHILDREN WHO STRUGGLE WITH MATHS
Of course, you won’t give a child a math lesson for Christmas, but with BrainySpinach Math, this is learning as far removed from being a math lesson as you can get!
The math games, from beginner to advanced, are available on the hugely popular Roblox, with additional tutor support also offered. Parents and children can dip in and out or sign up for a five-week camp. The outcomes for each lesson are clearly described, as is the age-range suitability. Each game is designed to fit with national curriculum goals, has inbuilt safety protocols and has full ‘actual human’ support, all while letting your child feel they are gaming.
