I need double the amount of presents as one has a birthday on Christmas Eve and the other on the 19th.

Ideally 1-2 big presents and around 30+ medium

Alonglongway Fri 29-Aug-14 00:59:30

iPad mini
iTunes credit (mine would kill for that)
lush products
Box set of books to work through
Fluffy pjs and socks
Cool shoes - Converse/Clarks Hamble play well with my 2
Notebooks and pens
Earrings
Ear phones
Bedding set
Cookie kits - think the brand is Scarlett's - ready to go set in a kilner jar

Mine are obsessed with a stationary shop called Blott. Great for stocking fillers. Will be following this for more ideas though. The eldest has discovered The White Stuff for clothes recently.

I have a 12 yo DD (so right in between your DD ages)
Things she likes:

H&M
Primark
Office (Vans/Converse)
So gift vouchers for there

Earrings (she loves those shambala studs, not wearing drops or hoops yet)
Nail varnish (especially OPI - the tiny bottles are ideal, she has little hands)

Blott - YY rubbers, pencil cases

Have you looked at "Young Drivers" - they need to be 11yo+ and 5' tall, but you can book a 30 or 60 minute driving lesson (we do in Lakeside or Bluewater. It runs up to Nov then after January as they need all the car-parks at Christmas)

Lush

Yankee Candles

Costa Coffee Card (I buy a £20 for DD )

Hotel Chocolate do those "Selectors" - small pack (about 6) chocolates in a pack, about £3-4. Or a bar of chocolate.

Is the 13 year old into make up if so loads of discount bits on fragrance direct and good brand nail varnish for £1 I always get a load of bits for stoking fillers.

Thank you all for your ideas.

A few to bear in mind. I love the coffee voucher ( they love Starbucks)
And itune voucher though they are both using my itune account

Got them the smart tv and beanbag last year
Mini ipad the year before that
Just bought them converses, a jack will hoody and canvas bag

I get them bedding sets every year and the both get a set each from my best friend as well.

I know my older daughter wants a pandora bracelet and they both want to play the guitar so need to shop around for that.

Want to get another stacker box for their stacker that they got last year.

Would recommend the little book of earrings for any girls that have their ears pierced.

I got them 3 perfumes last year each and they have still yet to open them.
Also their book set too have not been opened as the older one reads her books too quickly I as I buy lots for her, she tends to read her favourites first so still have some left. My younger one doesn't like reading. I try to encourage her to read by buying all sorts of books to no avail. She'll get a shock when she gets to secondary school.

Do need to get a watch for them but want to find a teenager style

Would like to get lush as her friends using them but my dd has sensitive skin
She has a little makeup but she doesn't really use any of them. Not even nail varnish. It really depends if she can be bothered during the hols as she cannot wear any for school.
