Wicked Uncle Review

I have quite a large family that have children of all ages, this makes birthday days difficult. I always find it really easy to buy for the younger ones but as they get that bit older it gets even harder. I have recently reviewed the service at Wicked Uncle, a really cool online toy & gift shop who aim to look after the uncles, aunts, godparents and grandparents of the world who need to send cool presents to kids. They have put together lots of really cool, unusual, interesting presents that children will love. They also offer a nice gift wrapping paper and they can be sent directly with a handwritten birthday card. They will also send you reminders so you never miss another present ever!

As you can see from the video above they site offers you different ages and categories to choose from, this makes it really easy to narrow down your choices. I like that they cover from new baby all the way up to teenagers, I also love that they cover a range of budgets. I was given £40 to spend on the site and these are what I got.
Mr. D loves horrible histories and enjoys watching the episodes on catch up tv. I saw this and knew he would love it. This is a fun game the whole family can enjoy and priced at only £10.95, each card features a different villain and you have to remember what you can in 10 seconds. Its a fun fast paced game.
I spotted the optical illusions book whilst browsing through gifts for teens. Mr. L loves things like this is fascinated him. The book is priced at only £6.99 and it is packed with mind-bending illusions, puzzles and tricks.
This weird creatures mix & match is perfect for my youngest 2, they love to be creative. This game is priced at £8.95  and they can play it traditionally and make real animals or be really silly and make their own weird and wonderful new creatures. It will certainly be fun and keep them busy.
I even spotted this recipe binder which is perfect for me! This colourful spotty binder is priced at £6.95, it is full of good quality pages to write your recipes on. It also comes with different dividers to you can categorise your recipes. This is ideal for all the Slimming World recipe cutting I have been collecting from the magazine. I can now sit and write them up into this cute binder.
It wouldn't be a birthday without a bit of chocolate would it? This 9cm hollow white chocolate egg is £4.95. It is decorated with chocolate buttons and sprinkles to give him a nice smiley face. It comes in a nice cellophane bag tied with a ribbon, it will make a lovely little gift for your chocolate lover.

I really like the Wicked Uncle website, I was easily able to find things that all my children and relatives would love. The website is really easy to navigate, I love the categories and the reminders service is great for a busy Mum of 4 like me.
Thanks For Reading

  4. I have used Wicked Uncle before for ideas. It's brilliant especially if you really don't know what a particular age likes.

  6. What a great idea! Children become incredibly particular about gifts as they get older so finding something suitable is definitely a challenge. I have resorted to asking them what they want and buying that - but then there is no anticipation or surprise. Thanks for the review. Have bookmarked the site.
