Melissa and Doug doorbell house – about £20 but shop around. Useable from about 2yo onwards – Kitty still plays with hers and she is nearly five.

What to Bake and How to Bake It by Jane Hornby. The best baking book published in the last ten years. Sorry Delia and everyone else, but seriously. Again – about £20.

Log carrier from a really excellent little independent British company in Norfolk called The Carrier Company. £38. Lots of lovely things on there if the log carrier doesn’t suit.
