Gifts for under £20 | Lanka Kade Gift Guide

Gifts for under £20 | Lanka Kade Gift Guide

Tis the season for a gift guide! Fa la la la laaaa la la la laaaa!

Now this isn’t as recipient specific as Top 10 gifts to buy your neighbours poodle or as extravagant as 5 gifts under £750 for your hairdresser. This Lanka Kade gift guide has been curated with parents and grandparents who have tried and tested our wooden toys. You don’t need to spend a fortune to have the best Christmas ever, so here is our ‘under £20’ gift guide for you to enjoy! You can’t wrap up your Christmas presents without a Christmas film on in the background either, so we got their top picks for those too.

Dinosaur Skittle Set

1) Dinosaur Skittle Set | £18.00 |
Chosen by Rachel, Mum to 3

Rachel’s children love these skittles as they provide a great game for all ages and gets the siblings playing together. They are big, chunky and a good price plus the dinosaurs can be played with separately too. Rachel would definitely buy them for a dinosaur mad little one! As for her favourite film, it would have to be Father Christmas created by Raymond Briggs.

We haven’t even heard of this film so it’s definitely on the ‘to watch’ list – find Rachel on Instagram @rachelandthelittlebirds





Dinosaur Shape Sorter

2)  Dinosaur Shape Sorter | £18.00 |
Chosen by Sharron, Gran to 2 and part of the Lanka Kade team.

Sharron has chosen this shape sorter as her daughter wishes to move away from plastic toys for her girls.  The dinosaurs double up as individual characters too so they are like baby dinosaurs to the big ones she already has! Sharron’s favourite film is the classic Miracle on 34th Street – as it’s what Christmas is all about! Is it even Christmas if you haven’t watched this?






Lanka Kade Natural Animals

3) Natural animals | £2.40 - £2.70 each |
Chosen by Jade, Mum to 2

Jade can’t get enough of the natural animals. She loves them and thinks they are a lovely way to spark children’s imaginations – plus there are so many in the range, everyone can find a favourite. Jade is an old romantic so her favourite Christmas film is The Holiday (We all know it’s because of Jude Law though really Jade)

4) Junior Zoo Playscene | £18.00 |
Chosen by Kate, Mum to 3

Kate has chosen this Junior Zoo playscene as it’s the perfect choice to start a Lanka Kade collection. You get a lot for your money as it comes with 9 characters and a backdrop – she regularly uses it to set up invitations to play for her little ones! Kate’s favourite Christmas film has divided opinions at Lanka Kade HQ but we’ll give it a watch; The Polar Express.

5) Countryside animal bag | £16.00 |
Chosen by Medlan, Mum to 3 

Medlan has chosen this lovely selection of animals as they often get overlooked. The perfect starter set for a budding collector or a beautiful addition for a seasoned pro. Medlan will watch any film with a REAL Father Christmas . . . but Father Christmas is real Medlan, so that’s added 17809 films to the watch list!

6) Unicorn Pull Along | £18.00 |
Chosen by Gillian, Mum to 3 

Gillian has chosen this unicorn pull along as it’s her little girl Isabella’s most played with toy. She loves pulling it along and takes it everywhere with them; she will be buying her niece one this Christmas. Gillian has also opted for The Holiday (another Jude Law fan!) but she always has to watch The Grinch with Isabella too.

7)  Junior Starry Night Nativity | £18.00 |
Chosen by Sheila, Mum to 2 

As well as the excitement of Santa coming to visit, Sheila celebrates the birth of Jesus at Christmas with her daughters. They love listening to the Christmas story and the junior nativity is the perfect accompaniment. Her little (almost) three year old loves to play with this set, Angel Gabriel has arrived on a dragon whilst the Three Wise Men arrived via Rainbow Elephant – the joys of imaginative play. Sheila has opted for ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation’ as she used to watch it with her dad every Christmas and she still laughs out loud when she watches it – having never heard of this we are definitely finding this tonight!

8) Snail Push Along | £6.00 |
Chosen by Helen, Mum to 1 and part of the Lanka Kade team.

Helen loves the colours on this Snail push along and has already purchased one for a friend’s little one. It’s so chunky and tactile! Helen’s favourite Christmas film is Elf which she watches with her son as it’s really funny and brings the magic of Christmas to life.
