Book People’s favourite Christmas characters

‘Tis the season to be jolly, so all of us here at Book People are getting into the Christmas spirit and celebrating our favourite festive characters. Who would you choose as your most-loved?

Father Christmas

Have you ever wondered what Father Christmas did the other 364 days of the year? This blooming brilliant book will show you…


The Snowman

We all watch it every year on Channel 4 without fail and The Snowman book is just as magical. You know you’ll laugh and cry every time you read it.


Ebenezer Scrooge

One of the most memorable characters in fiction (and surely Michael Caine’s defining role. Yes, we’re being serious…), the tale of Scrooge finding his lost kindness will continue to define Christmas for generations of readers.


The Grinch

The audacity of it all… He actually went and stole Christmas! But the grouchy Grinch also learned the value of the holiday through the kindly Whos of Whoville.


Mrs Scrooge

A new addition to the list, Mrs Scrooge follows in the footsteps of her late miser husband but in former Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy’s book, she also discovers there’s more to life when you let the kindness in.


The Jolly Christmas Postman

While doing his rounds, the Jolly Christmas Postman comes across many fairy tale characters who are more than happy to share their Christmas wishes.

R2-D2 rucksack

We think this would turn any Star Wars fan into a spin. Shaped like everyone’s favourite droid, it’s a backpack we have a good feeling about your child loving…


Minions satchel

Ba-ba-ba-brilliant. Your little Minion will absolutely love this over-the-shoulder bag.


Paddington rucksack

Somewhere for the kids to tuck away their marmalade sandwiches as they head to playschool or school.


Educational Gifts

Full speed ahead… Your children (and maybe you and your other half!) will be racing to finish making this amazing apache helicopter.

We have so much beautiful Mary Berry kitchenware available at unbelievable prices. But hurry, they won’t be around long!


Jigsaws and Puzzles

These large-format jigsaws have two sides of fun. Mr. Men and Little Miss fans will love putting the pieces together to see a picture of them, while on the other side is an image just waiting for them to add some colour.


Playtime and Craft

Make Your Own Mr. Bump

There’s nothing quite like making a costume or cuddly toy themselves and these great gifts star the likes of Peppa Pig and Mr. Bump (surely everyone’s favourite Mr. Men character?)
