Looking for the perfect stocking fillers for your water babies/sand lovers? With our kiddos growing up on the beach and by the pool you really can’t go wrong with a few treats to make it all more colourful and we know just the place to get them! Sand Dollar Dubai is an online store set up by a very Sassy Mama over 6 years ago and dedicated to offering a fast, efficient service delivering all beach essentials for the whole fam. We love their toweling garmets for post-swim cosiness (it’s cold for our little desert dwellers at the moment!), non-slip pool shoes in all sorts of colours and patterns plus rashies and shorts to match, beach games and much more. And the best bit? While Sand Dollar does have 2 lovely stores at Waldorf Astoria, The Palm and Fairmont, The Palm, you can order online and expect delivery on the same day – within 3 hours if you order before 3pm (AMAZING!). Oh and if you’re ordering anything which needs to be tried on then the driver will wait while you do so and then take any items which aren’t suitable away – leaving you to pay for only the things you’ve chosen. Perfect.
10% off your final bill (including sale items) exclusively for Sassy Mama readers. Simply enter code SASSYMAMA10 at checkout. Expires 14, December. www.sanddollardubai.com Open at Fairmont, The Palm and Waldorf, The Palm everyday 8am – 8pm Whatsapp us on +971558924600 or call our head office on +97145516211
Some kids know exactly what they want to wear each day, they’re up to date with the latest trends and they love to shop with mama! From Adidas to Bonpoint, Gardner & The Gang to Dolce & Gabana, shoes to accessories and full outfits too there’s something at Level Kids store to suit all tastes, budgets and occasions – whether they’re into sporty style or glittery party dresses! We love all the accessories including jewellery, hats, bags and watches that make for the cutest little stocking fillers and make every kiddo feel very grown up and very special. And what’s Christmas without a new pair of pyjamas?! The selection of sleepwear at Level Kids is adorable. Little boys will go wild for the Fabric Flavours Blue Superman Glow-In-The-Dark pj’s while girlie girls would adore the Amiki Children Light Pink/Blue Rose Night Dress. Pop into the store and let the kids enjoy all kinds of winter festive activities while you shop and get everything beautifully gift-wrapped and ready – or shop online, mama!

Getting your kiddo a bike for Christmas? Or want to encourage them to use their set of wheels more often (and in safety?!). We know just the way to do it with the most awesome bike helmets, gloves, locks and bike bells in different themes by Crazy Safety. From pink leopards to dragons, giraffes to tigers there are loads of different designs for you to choose from. Designed in Denmark and made to all the highest safety specs, the helmets are lightweight, have shock absorbent padding plus inbuilt flashing LED lights for visibility – are comfortable (no risk of pinching that bit of under chin skin when you’re doing them up!) and look so cool too. And you can buy matching accessories including the cutest little bike gloves to make gripping the handlebars all the more easier, locks and bells too. Time to get on those bikes!

Nothing gives us more joy than seeing our kids with their nose in a book – or reading them bedtime stories and watching their eyes light up as their imaginations whirr. For littles aged 5-8 years we particularly love ‘Fairy Tales’ by Hilary McKay which give new life to classic tales such as The 12 Dancing Princesses and Cinderella with gorgeous black & white illustrations – or ‘Pirates Magnified’ by David Long which allows kids to ‘search and find’ fab details on each page using an inbuilt magnifying glass – and shares a pirate-slang glossary too! Shiver Me Timbers!

If your kid is always poking about in the soil and asking questions about how things grow – or if he/she is keen to know where our food comes from then we’ve found the perfect gift! The Root Vue Farm is a fun and educational gift that allows your little ones to plant their own vegetables in an acrylic planter that shows how the roots develop. Not only will they learn while having fun but it might encourage them to eat their greens too!
