Following the fun and festivities of Christmas, January can seem a little bleak. It rains a lot. Everyone is giving up alcohol or going on diets. The new series of Celebrity Big Brother has started. Dark times indeed.
If you know a child who has their birthday in January, it might be tempting to just put some money in a card, or give a voucher. You’re out of ideas for cool presents because it’s only just been Christmas. You don’t know what they have already got. You’re far too busy doing your tax return and posting #newyearnewme healthy food pictures on Instagram. It’s all too much hassle, right?
Wrong. Here’s a selection of brilliant and unusual presents for children for you to choose from. Let 2018 be the year you become Coolest Relative.
It’s a spider. It’s remote control. It can walk on your walls, floors and ceilings. It’s got LED eyes. Why on earth would you buy a gift voucher instead?!
Children will love this because it is different., fun, creative and colourful. Parents will love it because it is educational, machine washable, and it hardly takes up any room. Win win present for a nephew, niece, grandchild or godchild.
This unusual gift comes complete with card and PIN number and it lights up and makes realistic sounds too. It recognises and counts each coin including the new £1 coin, and accepts notes too. Sadly no overdrafts are currently available. Maybe next year?!
Puzzles are good for the brain. They’re easy to store away. This one is under £10. The picture moves and has 3D depth. Animals posing for a selfie are funny. That’s kind of all you need to know.
SAFARI HOODED BATH ROBE £29.99
Go one better than #NewYearNewYou. Encourage the small people to be a giraffe in 2018. We’re not quite sure where this revolution is leading, but it has to be more fun than going Vegan.*
We can gift wrap your item and send it direct with a handwritten card. All our toys are arranged by age, gender and category, so regardless of how much you know about a child’s interests, the perfect gift is a few clicks away. We can remind you about birthdays every year so you never have to grovel because you missed one.
In short, 2018 is the year that Wicked Uncle is going to make you look like an organised and amazing present buyer, with minimal effort from you.
*We’re only joking. We love Vegans. We just couldn’t eat a whole one.
