I don’t know about you but after Christmas I always struggle when Aiden’s friends have birthdays at the start of the year. It got me thinking that it must be so tricky to find a truly unique gift, especially so soon after the barrage of gifts most children seem to receive at Christmas. We are extremely lucky because both the kid’s birthdays are right in the middle of Summer so we have a nice six months buffer either side but I thought I’d do a bit of online window shopping at my favourite unique toy shop What2buy4kids and share with you a special 10% discount code for my readers. Simply add the code ONEMINE218 at the checkout for the discount to apply. Happy shopping.
