There’s something so great about this Being An Auntie / Uncle game. Cuddles a plenty, an excuse to play in the kiddies' pool, and the chance to sit right back on the kids' table at family gatherings. There, kids laugh at your jokes, listen to your stories and, unlike your boss or the grown-ups in your family, believe almost anything you tell them.

So, how can you ensure their affection never wanes?

Answer: the age-old art of bribery.

This Christmas, go for good-time gifts. The cool-as outfits they’ll insist on wearing, no matter what’s in the diary for that day. The toys they’ll want by their side morning, noon and night. Give the more-more-more, the can’t-get-enoughs.

We’re rounded up the best of the best. After all, you’re up against Santa.
