Christmas Gift Guide 2020




I've debated putting this blog post together for the past few weeks. I still feel very uncomfortable about sharing Amazon affiliate links, but equally I value my time and feel strongly that I deserve to be paid for it, even if it is for an incredibly measly amount (I've been blogging weekly for the past 7 months, and have received around £50 in affiliate fees). I'm looking into setting myself up as an affiliate for the independent book shop site, bookshop.org, but wasn't able to do that in time for this post. Yet I'm still left in a dilemma about how to link everything else that isn't a book, so that you can easily find it.


Maybe you care deeply about this issue, maybe you don't, but I felt like I wanted to be transparent about why I share Amazon affiliate links, even though it is completely against my ethos as a small business. My inbox is constantly full of requests for toy, book, game and gift recommendations, so I've taken the plunge with a Christmas Gift Guide for this year. This is obviously not an exhaustive list, but these are all toys, games and books that we have (or have had over the years) and would recommend. I hope you're able to find something suitable here for your little love.
