As the cold weather sets in it’s time for cosying up, watching Christmas films and starting your Christmas shopping – whether you find the experience dreaded or enjoyable!
For a lot of children, Christmas is all about the presents.
In fact, a survey by The Independent recently found that the average child’s Christmas list contains 16 suggestions worth £294.58!
But when they’re too young to create a list or it’s made up of exclusively impossible-to-buy items such as a new addition to the family or a unicorn, it can make Christmas shopping a little difficult.
Fear not - we’ve put together a list of our top 10 Christmas gifts for children in 2022 to give you some inspiration.
