I am so organised with my Christmas shopping this year, I actually began putting things away in May and I found it so much easier and cost effective doing it bit by bit and getting things whilst they were on sale. This Christmas Tyler Lee's main gift is the beauty Tildo Country Play Kitchen which we bought in a traditional toy shop in our city (I've added a link above to where it can be bought online). This is one of the most beautiful toy kitchens I've ever seen, I just love the light blue colour and the Belfast sink, it's perfect for my boy. As this is his main gift his father and I wanted to get him things to go with his kitchen, we got the Le Toy Van Honeybake blender and mixer sets which are just adorable! The Djeco Fox's Party Tea Set is super sweet with all the things a little one needs to have a tea party including little wooden teabags and a cake that can be cut up. We also picked up a Morphy Richards Kitchen set which has a coffee maker, kettle and toaster as well as some other bits and pieces and some metal pots and pans (to be honest I wish we had opted for the wooden option, they'd be far quieter!). Finally we got him a 120 piece food set for making lots of make believe meals. I think it's fair to say Tyler Lee's kitchen is far nicer and better kitted out than our real one!
We got Tyler Lee a Vtech train set last year but it's far too big for our small house so we've opted for a smaller wooden train set for him this year. We also got him a Peter Rabbit storage box filled with lots of Peter Rabbit goodies including the plush shown next to the box above. I also filled the box with a Peter Rabbit classic book, a mini board book set, playing cards, a make your own rabbit mask kit and some DVDs. Another of his gifts is a box of Lego Duplo, his first lego set ever! We also have the Wheelybug Bee for him which will be his first proper ride on toy. As he's always getting his picture taken we thought this chevron design wooden toy camera would be a great gift for our boy, we also got a white strap for it as he loves wearing things around his neck. Finally, his last gifts are a mini wooden work bench similar to the one above and a personalised wooden tool set and case.
I think we have gone a bit overboard this year and had actually forgotten some things we had bought as we bought things bit by bit. I don't want Christmas to turn into a toy fest for Tyler Lee, especially as he gets his Christmas Eve basket, lots of books and some stocking fillers too but I am glad that we've picked things this year that we know will get played and which will last a lifetime too. I hope he'll love everything that Santa brings him!
What have you gotten your little ones for Christmas this year?
