How much do you spend on a school friends birthday gift? I’ve discovered that a lot of people opt for either €10 gifts, €15 gifts or €20 so I thought I’d show you a €10 gift idea for every age (up until 12). Prices are correct at time of writing but may increase over years.
These crocheted baby rattles are so cute and they would make a lovely gift for a small baby. This one is the pineapple one. I also stock rainbows, a watermelon, an ice-lolly, and a toadstool designed baby rattles by this same brand. These baby toys are suitable from birth and come with fair trade certification.
These Janod wooden vehicles are just gorgeous and would make a lovely gift for a one year old. Choose from a Black Truck, an Olive Car, an Olive Truck, a Natural Wood Car, a Natural Wood Truck, a Coral Car, a Blue Bus or a Yellow Bus.
Djeco’s Duo Puzzles are sturdy cardboard two-piece puzzles for little hands and minds to put together. There are 4 different boxes to choose from. This one is the Habitat one where you have to match the animals with where they live. I also stock a Vehicles one, a Numbers one and a Mum and Baby one.
These progressive difficulty puzzles from Galt are well priced and each box has four different puzzles for your child to master. The Vehicles Puzzles and Farm Puzzles have 4, 6, 8 and 12 pieces while the Jungle Puzzles have 12, 16, 20 and 24 pieces.
Alternatively, if jigsaw puzzles aren’t their thing and they’d prefer a game. This Matching Pairs Game from Djeco is gorgeous and it costs only €10.
At four years of age, children can usually master pretend play and also playing with other children (instead of beside them but not with them). Play food is great for pretend play games and this set of wooden dairy products will add to any play kitchen, shop or cafe!

This is just a small selection of the toys I stock that cost €10 or less. You can view my full range of toys that cost less than €10 here. This price range sells very quickly at this time of year but I’ll be restocking regularly so if I’m out of stock, keep an eye on my website. Alternatively, if you just can’t decide what to buy, why not choose a €10 gift voucher?
