Christmas gift ideas for boys and girls
I always struggle finding Christmas gift ideas for boys and girls, whether it’s for my kids or for friends and relatives. Every kid I know these days has access to a gaming console, but what game is best? I thought I’d put some suggestions up on the blog for everyone else who is struggling!
I’ve already blogged about some great Christmas ideas from Nintendo, but there are some good little games that could fill a hole in your Christmas present list.
If you’re not sure what to get for a kid in primary school, these games are all suitable:
