It gets to around this time every year and we realise just how close we are getting to Christmas day. The present panic starts to set in and we start racking our brains for what we can buy our little loved ones.

You’ve got those Christmas classics of little socks, some new cute pyjamas and those little bits and bobs all ticked off and in the bag already. But are you looking for something a little different to put under the tree this year, something that will really impress them and a little unusual to those gifts you give year after year? Well we’ve got you covered.

We have gone on the hunt for some extra special Christmas gifts that offer something a little different to really excite your loved ones.

Tiny Love Wonder Buddy

Wonder Buddies from Tiny Love are one unique gift that we know your little one will love. Wonder Buddies are designed to become your little one’s best friend whilst also helping their development and communication skills in a fun and unique way. They are full of super smart sensors that create 7 fun interactive activities. These range from playing hide-and-seek, to feeding their Wonder Buddy as well as tickling, bouncing and shaking, plus they can pop their Wonder Buddy to sleep to hear them snore. Tiny Love have also included play cards to inspire and add fun stories to play time with their Wonder Buddy. There really is no other gift like this, and we love them! The Tiny Love Wonder Buddy is suitable from 12 months upwards.

Etta Loves Playmat

We know, a play mat isn’t exactly that left field, but this one has a little bit of magic in it’s design! Etta Loves products are not only made of the highest quality fabrics, but they have been designed with input from an early years visual expert, to ensure that they stimulate babies' visual and cognitive development. Of all the senses, vision is the least developed at birth so your little one can only really see very high contrast things. Etta Loves unique patterns and designs are all purposefully created with this in mind. Her range of muslin's, cuddle cloths, teethers and play mat's are all split into two categories, designs for 0-4 months and then a 5+ months stage for when their colour vision has improved. The clever play mat has 2 sides which can be flipped over to match each stage. Is there a better gift than one with a sprinkle of magic, a touch of science and one that helps your little ones development?
