    My eldest asked for a Samsung Note 10 and a drift trike. My youngest asked for a remote control car. We try to get at least one or two things from Santa. The rest come from us

    I actually like the Unicorn slide n glide for myself coz I’m such a Unicorn fan. But these are great ideas for a great summer time activity with the family.

    My daughter is asking for a scooter and our 2 boys are asking for new bikes so we can all get out and go for family bike rides at the park. My kids love their boogie boards and enjoy heading down to beach during the summer.

    We are doing the whole wear, share, need, read, want thing this year and for the sharing gifts Ive brought a water slide, sprinkler octopus thing, water gun each and a 10 pack outdoor sports pack with net, balls, cricket set… Having 3 very adventurous busy boys being outdoors is second nature to us so gifts like these are just ideal…. Offer hours of fun and also cooperation and kindness with one another too… Trampoline was the big gist last year and that thing is practically lived on.. Even in winter so I’m super excited for these prezzies of outdoor fun this year… We are very lucky we have a really decent sized backyard that’s private and fenced too so no excuses not to get out there and have a few water fights etc over summer

    Great ideas for gifts. Always am loving the tent idea and its a shady place for children to hide away out of the sun. We used to play in a wee funsize tent all the time as children and I loved it. Guut bullo bucket now thats one thing ive never seen before and that would be sure to impress my sun for beach trips as hes forever trying to put water in his hands and bring it to the sand castles hes made but it never gets there lol. My children’s top of the list Christmas list idea this year is to get a water slide. They have hours of fun but the last one got ripped by neighborhood cats unfortunately.

    All great ideas! I want the shower speaker for myself hahaha. The Nerf Super Soaker would be awesome, my 6 year old and her Dad have Star Wars Nerk electronic guns that they are always running around with, so would love the soakers. My daughters wish list is a pair of Heely’s and a crop hoody haha

    These are great gift ideas I really need to start my Christmas shopping and these have given me some inspiration to get started now. My kids would love boogie boards and the oldest a shower speaker, water guns are always great too and toys for pools.
