It’s the 1st of December, which means it’s officially time to crack open those advent calendars that have been sitting tantalisingly on your shelves because the countdown to Christmas has officially begun!
In our last two blog posts, we offered suggestions of unique Christmas gifts and the best Christmas gift boxes that you can get. Naturally, our Viftbox Giftbox that plays your very own custom-made video message (or a creative message from Santa Claus himself) was our number one choice gift-packaging choice to brighten up someone’s Christmas.
With that issue settled, it’s now time to decide just what great Christmas gifts you can place inside your Viftbox Giftbox. We’ve had a look at what’s hot and the toys that all children want this Christmas and here’s our pick of the 10 best Christmas gifts for kids for 2017.
