Hands up, who is getting excited for Christmas already?! Usually, I have a rule that I don’t think or talk about Christmas until after my birthday in mid-November, but this year it’s only October and I’m already thinking the festive spirit might be the perfect distraction for a year that has been difficult for us all. So, today I’m writing a post about how to find the perfect Christmas present for your little one, without leaving the comfort of your home! Christmas shopping might be different this year, but maybe you have already thought of some new Christmas traditions (or you’ll stick with your old) but with most of us turning online to avoid crowded spaces, so I thought I’d share a fabulous website that is the answer to all our Christmas shopping prayers!
What is Wicked Uncle?
Introducing Wicked Uncle – an online toy store with all the answers to help you find the perfect Christmas gift for little ones, no matter what they are into. Wicked Uncle has done taken the hard work out of finding the perfect gift by scouring the world to find the most useful, fun, unusual and different presents for children.
Wicked Uncle isn’t just for Christmas though! They can be used for birthdays and all other special occasions – plus you can set reminders which pop up each year so you’ll never forget an important date.
How does it work?
The clue is in the name, it’s not just for finding presents for your little one, but a fantastic place to help a ‘wicked uncle’ or ‘super grandparent’ to find the perfect gifts for children of all ages, which would usually be totally overwhelming. I find it so hard to buy for other peoples children, so this is definitely the first place I look if I need inspiration!
The website has a ‘gift finder’ service where you can filter toys by age and gender to narrow your search.
If you are still stuck for ideas, you can narrow down the search by what they are into, from categories like Outdoorsy, Sensory, Brainiac, Creativity and more. You can see which toys are popular at the moment or there are also super useful lists of toy suggestions and blog posts to inspire and find the right gift for even the trickiest child!
I searched the site for Christmas present ideas for Violet and Pearl and found this gorgeous Pet Vet Set that she would love! She just loves our dog Robbie, so I bet she would love to play vets and learn to care for animals. For Pearl, I think she would love this Rainbow Wooden Jigsaw and Playset – especially with the cute cat on the top, she goes mad for anything with a cat character!
Gift Wrapping and other services
Once you’ve found the perfect toy you’ll have the option to gift wrap with a selection of fun and coloured paper! Gift wrapping is £2.50 for the first present and only £1.50 for each additional present, which I think is a really reasonable price. You can add the child’s name and add a card, there is a selection of cool designs, plus you can opt for it to be ‘handwritten by elves’ too!
Wicked Uncle is the perfect place to shop this Christmas – so have a browse of the cool, fun and unique toys on offer!
