Christmas is my favourite time of the year, the lights, the festive tunes, the great movies, the delicious food and the act of giving presents. I love being able to search for the perfect present for someone and the impatient waiting for them to open it on Christmas day.

Anyway, with Christmas just around the corner, I'm here to help you search for some fantastic Christmas gifts for your babies and toddlers! As a sleep consultant and parent, I understand the joy of watching our little ones light up with excitement as they unwrap their presents on Christmas morning. That's why I've put together this comprehensive list of gift ideas that are sure to bring a smile to your child's face. And who knows, you may even find something in there for yourselves too!

skills, fine motor abilities, and sensory exploration.

That's Me Stories:

That's Me Stories

These stories carry a message that resonates deeply with me — the belief is that every child deserves to find themselves reflected in the stories they read. Personalised stories, beyond being delightful tales, serve as powerful tools to guide children through significant life moments like potty training, starting nursery, going to bed or becoming a big sister or brother. By witnessing their achievements celebrated within their very own story book cultivates motivation and boosts confidence!
