Tots100 Christmas Shopping Guide – the Parent Edition


Christmas presents

Looking for the perfect Christmas present to add to your wish-list? Fancy something a bit different, unique and very cool? Then look no further. We’ve got Christmas gifts for parents sorted!

I am lucky to live in a massive hub of independent and very unique shops. Brighton truly sparkles at Christmas with street traders, and a stroll through the North Lane is a pretty way to spend your Christmas savings. I have been trying to steer away from the big retail stores this Christmas and have selected 10 gifts that I am sure you will scream “WANT!” as much as I have.

First things first, you need to have some funky pj bottoms at Christmas. I have decided to go for these skinnies that will clash well with a Christmas jumper!

I found these Dr Suess quote pendants after a conversation on Twitter. We love Oh The Places You’ll Go and I think they are a perfect sentimental gift without looking over the top.

For dads, how about a pair of  beautiful cufflinks? These ones from Not On The High Street can be customised with your choice of map – perhaps a honeymoon destination or the place where your partner proposed?

Keeping snuggly can mean looking good too, this stylish jumper has the added touch of fun with the partridge. Talking fashion – every lady needs a tartan skirt in their lives! It’s trendy and something that will never go out of style.

We have an Irregular Choice shoe shop in Brighton and it’s blooming fabulous. If only I had a money tree! But if not these are my absolute favourite pair right now.

I love this feather necklace that I have just bought it for myself. Chunky jewellery goes well with simple outfits or chunky knits. Perfect to stand out and sparkle on Christmas Day.


For the techy types, I’ve found this lovely iPad or iPhone yellow cover – it’s bright, chirpy and will make you feel that you are one of a kind!

Meanwhile, for the Doctor Who fan who has everything then this piece of wall art from America is a little bit different.

Is Dad a big kid with a massive sweet tooth? I love this sweet grabber – it’s reminiscent of days on Brighton Pier.

And for the gamer who has all the tech? Then this gaming machine for the iPad is a must!


Where will you be spending your money this Christmas and what will you be spending it on? Oh… and is anyone else banning their guests from speaking during Dr Who?!

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
