Why not look for timeless classics and unique finds this Christmas? Let this list of Christmas Gift Ideas for boys and girls, regardless of age and with a price range inspire you to get a head start on your Christmas shopping.
We have divided the gift ideas into age groups that we believe the gifts would be the most suited for. When that’s said, you can never give a book too soon. We have highlighted what we think is the most desirable LEGO set this year, but there are of course smaller and more affordable sets available too. BRIO train sets are always among our recommendation for kids toys and this years recommendation would perhaps make Christmas even more special. Anything knitted would make wonderful gifts – and why not treat her to that completely unnecessary gorgeously sparkly party dress. Because life is too short not to be magical.

I have already got colourful wrapping paper, sparkly gift bands and matching tags. All that we need are the gifts to go inside the wrapping paper! The gift idea list is written, so little by little we can cross out and fill up Santa’s bag that we’ll bring back to Norway for Christmas.
