Of course, you know we love toys here at the Good Toy Guide, but sometimes when it comes to Christmas, you need to think outside the box…
Here are some great ideas, for alternative presents to toys and ways of keeping the magic alive without breaking the bank:
Be it dance, drama, art or athletics, give your child a chance to enhance their skills doing something they love or want to learn.
Classes like Gymboree Play & Music use a unique and impressive combination of music, movement, props, imaginary play and custom-designed and patented apparatus, all to create a fun and magical world where children learn, thrive and most importantly have fun.

Tickets to an event gives your child the opportunity to feel grown-up and special, plus it’s something to look forward to. Most of all, it’s something to do together and create those special memories. Try wrapping up a small scrapbook or notebook for your child to stick in tickets and photos of the event.
From indoor sky-diving, to chocolate making, an experience they’ll never forget! There are lots of ‘experiences’ and you don’t have to use one of the established companies. Use your network of friends and family to find experiences that money can’t buy. From going on a train to seeing behind the scenes on a film set – making memories is priceless.
These vouchers don’t have to cost the earth – in fact, they don’t have to cost anything at all! Why not create these vouchers yourself for things like ‘1x sleepover with friends’, ‘1x skip-the-veg dinner’ or ‘1x chore-free Friday’. You can wrap up the voucher as a scroll or in a card, or include it with a relevant trinket – a scrap book or something relevant to the voucher.
