gorgeous pink and purple kids storage box unit with toys and books in the boxes

Buying for children can be tricky. There are so many things that they need – and so many things that they want – the list can sometimes be endless!

And with Christmas right around the corner, many parents can be sure an influx of toys from various friends and family members will be on its way. So, if you’re looking for gifts that will be fun and useful, getting them some fun furniture for their room could be just the ticket.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s toys, a bigger bed or a pair of new wellies, kids love getting new things. And giving them an opportunity to change up their bedroom, play and create a space that they love, is a great way to capture the excitement of Christmas.

Here are our top five picks for your children this December 25th.

3) 3 Tier Colourful Childrens Storage Unit

Not only is our 3 Tier Childrens Storage Unit fun and colourful, but it’s a great place for kids to keep all their jigsaws, colouring books and teddy bears. The top storage boxes have lids and are great for stashing away smaller items such as Lego. And the side pockets can hold anything from pencils and rubbers to fidget spinners.

The fabric containers have handles making them easy for kids to take in and out. And children who love to organise can have fun rearranging the boxes to make sure everything is in its place.

A fantastic buy.
