With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what to ask Santa for this year. This can be a tough decision when there are so many different toys, accessories, and games to choose from, but selecting a favourite theme and going from there can be a great place to start.
Here, we look at some of the top trends for kids this Christmas, and the types of items that will be a huge hit under the Christmas tree for children of all ages.
Unicorns have been everywhere for a number of years now, and the trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere! With everything from playsets and stationery to clothing and cuddly toys on offer, choosing the best unicorn items for a Christmas list can be impossible! Anything that requires creativity and imagination is a great option, as this kind of play is fantastic for developing skills and confidence. This could be craft items that involve making things and colouring in, or figurines that can be used to act out amazing stories.
For kids that don’t seem to have an interest in clothes yet, unicorn clothing could be a great way to change this. With lots of different patterns, materials, slogans, and designs available, unicorn clothing is a great way to show character and personality. Unicorn books are another fantastic choice, as improving on skills while reading about a favourite character can make learning that little bit more fun! There are even a few different unicorn book series available, so finding a favourite one of these could mean that there are new installments to add to many Christmas and birthday lists to come.
From one mythical creature to another, the mermaid trend has also stayed popular across a number of Christmasses, with both children and adults alike! As with unicorn products, you can find mermaids on almost anything, ranging from swimwear and make up to bath toys and bedroom accessories. The upcoming release of the live action Little Mermaid film will only launch mermaids even further into the spotlight, meaning that this is a trend that is guaranteed to be around for a lot longer yet.
For a mermaid Christmas present that is really unique, look no further than a mermaid tail or mermaid leggings. Offering the opportunity to transform into a mermaid with a simple change of clothes, both tail and leggings can be worn in the pool, and are a great way to make swimming extra fun. For kids that aren’t so confident with swimming yet, mermaid leggings enable them to look like their favourite mythical creature while allowing the to kick as freely as they would in their normal swimwear. This is a great way to build confidence and improve swimming skills. With loads of colour options available, every child will be able to find their favourite, and what better way to start the new year than swimming into it like a mermaid?
Although this particular Christmas trend had the potential to drive parents mad, slime has been a firm favourite among kids of all ages, and adults seem to be completely on board with it! Slime gifts can be bought in a whole range of colours, sizes, and textures, with some even coming in glittery varieties! It is now common for small toys or figurines to come with slime too, and wrapping them up in the sticky substance can bring whole new levels of fun.
Another popular slime present offers children the ability to make it themselves. There are lots of slime kits available which include everything needed to make slime at home, and it could be said that this offers a lesson in chemistry as well as being super fun! If you’d prefer to make slime without the use of a kit, you can do so with the help of some PVA glue. With a number of different slime recipes available online, this could be a cheaper Christmas gift than the sets available in stores.
Now that you know the top trends for kids this Christmas, it’s time to start working on those all-important lists to Santa. Just don’t forget to leave out tasty treats for him and his reindeer too!
