  • And, something a little special

And a little something extra to add to the mix is this cute idea of Adopt a Donkey, not a traditional top 10 toys for Christmas gift idea but it’s such a lovely sentiment. Safe Haven for Donkeys was originally set up in 2000 to help the thousands of working donkeys in Israel and the Palestinian Territories (West Bank) and more recently in Egypt to provide the critical veterinary care needed for thousands of working donkeys and mules.

Donkey adoptions make a fantastic gift for animal lovers of any age and you can choose your own donkey from the safe haven 4 donkeys website. From baby donkeys to the older drove of retirees, there’s bound to be a donkey that appeals especially to you – perhaps the aptly named Noelle? For just £3 a month, or £36 a year, you can give the donkeys the love and care they need.

Christmas Treat Box

And don’t forget that one special present, Buddy’s Christmas Treat Box. Buddy’s Christmas Treat Box is a very special package created exclusively for the youngest members of the family, by a celebrated UK name in beauty and wellness. Chock full of gifts and inspiration for relaxation, creativity, storytelling and imagination, each box contains a curated selection of Elfland products, from child friendly eye masks to a beech wood wish wand and spell sheet and a wind down bedtime treasure hunt game. Enjoy exploring more than 30 different puzzles and games in Buddy’s Christmas Creative Wonderland activity book. Then wind down by popping on an Elf Eyes self-heating mask as you settle down for bedtime snuggles with Buddy the dog.

To complete your bedtime experience, prepare to relax and unwind as you read a chapter of the Christmas adventure story, The Lost Wish. Join Siena, Buddy, and Gabi as they set off on a remarkable journey into a mystical land that’s filled with adventures, magic, and festive fun. Or listen to your free audiobook download, The Lost Christmas Wish.

I cannot wait to see what the kids think of this on Christmas morning, it’s such a lovely idea.

This Christmas, spread joy and laughter with the top 10 toys for Christmas gifts in the UK for 2023 (I know it’s technically 11 in the list). Whether exploring magical realms with LEGO Harry Potter or setting sail with the Sylvanian Families, these toys are sure to create cherished moments for children throughout the country. May the holiday season be filled with wonder, excitement, and the magic of play! Check out my other gift ideas for more inspiration this Christmas.
