Some of Ethans Christmas Gifts + Ideas

Has anyone else NOT started their Christmas shopping yet? Because it sort of feels like it's just me. I feel like I'm struggling to keep up with how fast Christmas is approaching. Saying that I have been browsing good old Amazon whenever I get a chance for Christmas ideas for Ethan as I want to get him things that he's really going to be able to love and use, I don't want him ending up with lots of new toys that hardly get touched. So I guess that I'm trying to be organised in that sense and I suppose that's better than having done no other sort of other preparation for Christmas, right?

Here are some of the items that have been floating about in my 'saved for later' basket.. Any suggestions for any other brilliant toy ideas will be greatly appreciated! Because as I'm sure you can tell.. I'm SO not done!

1. He does have some crayons already, but I think I prefer the look of these ones, as you can sort of use them both ends. Plus I like the tub and choice of colours!

2. These life leg eggs are pretty cool. Ethan loves eggs so I'm sure he'll love having his own set of pretend eggs to play with. He actually has a new kitchen which I haven't yet blogged about, but he loves it so I am trying to find more roleplay sort of toys. Hence number 3 on the list..

3. He gets so excited watching me hoover, so I really want to get him his own one to use! I think he'll love it!

4. Okay, so I haven't fully decided on the doll yet, but I was looking for a more 'boy' looking doll. A lot of them seem to be aimed at girls which is silly because a lot of boys love playing with babies/dolls, and I think that's perfectly fine and rather sweet. Most of them will go on to be Dads one day, so what's the harm? I just want to find the right one, this was just one of the first I came across.

5. Our health visitor brought the book around the other day and I thought it was brilliant. Ethan's not talking much so I think this should help!

6. Same as above, as E isn't talking much I'm hoping these will help him learn!

7. I love this little tea set, it will be a great addition to Ethans new kitchen and I think he'll love pretending to make tea and eat cake!

8. I saw this little dinosaur gift set with a spoon, knife, fork, mug, 2 plates and a egg cup and I loved it right away. I'm not sure if it's too old for Ethan right now, but I can always put it away.

So there you go -  that's what I've got my eye on at the moment for Ethan. The list may well change and it will likely get bigger but that's an example of some of the things I think he'll love this year.

What present/s have you got your eye on this year for your little one?

  3. Our daughter loves flash cards. Books are great too but she'll sit and play with the cards, showing us and rearranging them for hours :)

  4. Cute! Tyne has a little boy rag doll from Mamas & Papas which is very sweet, I also love the look of the Prince George doll by Baby Annabel - SO CUTE!!! xx

  5. I love these ideas! Don't worry, I haven't even started to think about Christmas yet, let alone buy any presents! Little One also loves dolls and carrying one around helps him concentrate when he is practising walking so I was thinking about a boy doll too. Loving the idea of the Prince George one MissSparkles! Fab ideas! Thanks for sharing these Alex xx

  6. I bought Lilly the flash cards when she was one and it was the best thing i ever did, her she learnt so much really quickly and was able to learn her abc's really quickly x


  7. We have that book and both the boys love it! I was really surprised with how much time they spend playing with it actually! I have ordered a couple of books, but that is as far as we have got with Christmas shopping so far. Does Ethan have a pushchair? That is one toy both my boys have adored from the moment they could walk and would go well with the doll.

  8. I love the teaset and the dinosaur breakfast set
