Today we celebrate the 3rd birthday of his Royal Highness Prince George, but unlike most toddlers, buying a present for this particular one presents a rather large problem – what do you buy the 3-year-old who already has everything? We’re sure Prince George is a lovely young chap and doesn’t mind in the slightest what he gets, but you have to admit that there’s a great deal of pressure involved in buying this particular gift. So if you have a toddler birthday coming up where the gift stakes are high, or just want a gift with a difference, here are a few present picks from My Favourite Voucher Codes that might satisfy even the fussiest of 3-year-olds…
Impress Your Toddler by Going Big for Less
If in doubt, go big or go home. That’s the general gist when it comes to our first couple of gift ideas. If you want a sure fire impressive present, why not go the whole hog and get an Audi S5 Cabriolet? No, not a real one! That would be silly and more than a little bit reckless. We mean the Audi S5 Cabriolet 6V Ride-On (£99.99 with Smyths Toys voucher codes). What 3-year-old wouldn’t be pleased as punch with one of these?
At a slightly more sensible price, we’ve got the Finding Dory Bubble Tub (£24.99 with Smyths Toys voucher codes). With this item we’re thinking more along the lines of ‘hot off the production line’ and hoping that no one will have brought him one already. And what kid doesn’t love bubbles?
Personalised and Posh Toys
You can’t go wrong with personalised and posh, right? Especially when buying for a Prince. If you’re going to go to the trouble of getting their name put on something, you might as well make sure it’s a top quality bit of craftsmanship. This Personalised Picnic Bench and Cushions (£110 with My 1st Years promo codes) just screams miniature garden party – all you need is a tiny jug of homemade lemonade and a small plate of strawberries and cream and it wouldn’t look that out of place in the Kensington Palace gardens (not that we’ve ever been in them – this is pure guesswork).
Or instead of buying them the usual plastic vegetables to recreate their own dinner party, what about – get this – a Wooden Sushi Toy (£22 with My 1st Years promo codes)! For all those toddlers who need a working lunch while they’re in the city.
Back to Basics with Retro Wooden Toys
Continuing with the wooden theme, you could go for a traditional toy – this is a Prince you’re (hypothetically) buying for, after all. Traditional toys scream quality and class without necessarily breaking the bank, something we can all get behind. Shopping for a Prince’s present at the UK’s flagship toy store seems like a good fit, so you could use Hamleys discount vouchers to gift him a Hamleys Abacus Rack (£30) or a Hamleys Music Set (£22), although we’re not sure the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will think much of the racket associated with the latter of those two. On the other hand, he could teach himself a percussion version of ‘God the Save the Queen’…
So happy birthday Prince George! We hope your many relatives bring you everything you wish for on your special day and a homemade greeting card fit for the future King of England. Which would surely involve chocolate of some description.
