Here we’ve picked out all the treats and toys children will want on their Christmas list this year

It’s the most wonderful time of the year but picking out gifts for your kids can make the festive season a lot more stressful than cheerful. Don’t worry though, because we’ve done the hard work by picking out a selection of gifts and toys your children will want on their Christmas list this year. Our guide's got everything from a Boggle Hole handmade sock monkey and a rocking horse from The Rocking Horse Toyshop for the littlest of kids, through to a ride-on car from Adventure Toys and an Instax camera for their older siblings. Not to mention, there are special festive gifts such as a Fabulous Fairy Factory fairy and a festive fancies advent calendar from Dylan + Dora to really get your kids in the Christmas spirit.
