Let's share ideas, I'll start. DD is getting a proper sewing machine, a sewing basket filled with tools (fabric scissors, tape measures, pins, buttons, etc) and fabric, ribbons, patterns, sewing books. I think she'll get a lot of pleasure from this and I'm really pleased with my purchases.....oh, and a much asked for Furby which will hide at the bottom of the stocking so FC will get credit for that one.

Art stuff
Books

3b1g Fri 16-Nov-12 21:34:57

We bought the Wii game pre-owned and the books came in sets from The Book People, so it wasn't too hard to stay within budget.

exexpat Fri 16-Nov-12 21:33:58

I haven't actually started shopping yet, but top of DD(10)'s wish list is a hot glue gun hmm - she is very into craft and already has a sewing machine.

I expect she will also want more Monster High stuff, but she got a load for her birthday recently, so I'm not sure what's left to get...

Otherwise, probably some Lego (Ninjago or Monster Hunters, or possibly one of the architectural/famous buildings sets), almost certainly some books (I think there are a few Robert Muchamore ones she hasn't got yet), maybe some CDs or DVDs, and probably some clothing. She's in that tweeny stage of wanting toys and more teenagey stuff.

PriscillaLydiaSellon Fri 16-Nov-12 21:33:10

DD (8):

In-line skates, as hers have fallen apart
Michael Morpurgo box set
Some grisly books about vampires
Gangsta Granny
Socks
Terrible Tudors jigsaw
Beano annual

That's it, thus far!

Ileithyia Fri 16-Nov-12 21:29:00
