CHRISTMAS is coming and with the cost of living so high we all have to make sure we are not breaking the bank when buying gifts.
This can prove to be quite a challenge when shopping for young children.

Jamie Rose is a mum of two.
She has over 13,000 followers on TikTok and shares budget friendly videos for parents.
She is creating a TikTok video series to normalize having Christmas on a budget.
In latest video she shared all the gifts she bought her daughter for Christmas which costs just £40.
Jamie said: “I spent £40 this year, we have done less other years. I’m well aware that this will be out of some people’s budget, especially this year. Just remember – you are amazing, you’re doing your best, and you are a wonderful role model in your child’s life. I promise”.
To make her gift shopping easier this year Jamie decided to follow the five gift Christmas rule.
Here’s everything Jamie bought for her 6-year-old daughter.
First for the ‘something you want’ gift Jamie bought her daughter a Karaoke machine which was £15 from Amazon.
This comes with a pink microphone that Jamie’s daughter is sure to love.
Next a den kit which comes with pegs and tarpaulin. The den kit comes in a pink rucksack.
Jamie said she bought this in the sale of the Aldi special buys for £5.99.
Jamie said: “They are her main Christmas presents that she [her daughter] wants”.
Next for the ‘something you need’ gift, sock and pants.
For the ‘something to wear’ gift Jamie bought a pair of pajamas from M&S for £5, Jaime says these were in the January sales and her son has a matching pair.
Also a Boden dress for £5, with knights and dragons on it.
Jamie said: “She’s gonna love it”.
For something to read Jamie bought the Lego games book. The book comes with some Lego pieces and came from Amazon.
Jamie also bought a fairy dolls house sticker book.
Jamie said: “That was 89p in home bargains”.
