Children's Christmas Presents


 Share

Recommended Posts

As the evenings draw in I am beginning to think more about Chritmas. I have usually found some bargains to give thhe children at Christmas. I was wondering if people were willing to share their ideas about what they give their nursery children and any good sites as I don't seem to be able to find anything I like that is affordable Thanks in anticipation.

I too have ordered books from the book people for all my minded children, but my boys' nursery teacher gave them Kalidiscopes and they were great - still around several years later and used as spyglasses etc. Don't know where they came from but they were really good.

er mps - are those two lists the same? :o

 

We use Scholastic book club and get books when they have them on offer. When parents buy books from the scheme we get vouchers to use against our purchases, my 30 books have cost us nothing! They're getting 'Room on a Broom' this year.

 

We also do a 'secret santa' amongst the parents with a spending limit of £5. We pull names out of a hat and each family buy one present which they bring in before the end of term for our Christmas party. This ensures that we have a lovely variety of shapes, sizes and wraps under the Christmas Tree!

Oh well spotted - just testing to see who was awake.... :(

 

The second set they have (as well as loads of other books, of course!) is:-

 

You're All My Favourites by Sam McBratney

We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen & Helen Oxenbury

Can't You Sleep, Little Bear? by Martin Waddell

Snow Bears by Martin Waddell & Sarah Fox-Davies

A Friend for Little Bear by Harry Horse

The Bravest Ever Bear by Allan Ahlberg & Paul Howard

Be Gentle! A Story About Playing Nicely by Virginia Miller

You Can Do It, Sam by Amy Hest & Anita Jeram

Hello, Goodbye by David Lloyd & Louise Voce

Where's My Teddy? by Jez Alborough

 

 

The benefit of a selection like this is that you can choose who to give each book to, so 'We're going on a bear hunt' would be given to a child who is unlikely to have many books at home and therefore hopefully won't be given a book that they already have xD

I decided last year that the small £1 presents or so were not very appreciatedby the children and so decided that I would buy a group pressie for everyone to share at my setting!!! I wrap it up and present it the last weeek of term!! They really loved it last year, its much more beneficial to everyone! I have just purchased the whole Pintoy Hospital Set for this year! £180 worth of toys for £100 on Ebay boxed and a total bargain!! Cant wait.
