What are you getting your similar aged children for Christmas???

Same age, well my dds eleven next month.

Dd is getting Harry Potter stuff, more Percy Jackson books, blue tooth headphones and a phone.

Ds is getting a tablet and I'm debating whether to buy him a bike as well. He does need one but a tablet and a bike seems a bit excessive even if the tablet was only £40. He's got a few bits like pokemon cards, new David walliam book and a car track thing that was half price in sainsburys but I'm not buying a load of toys that won't get played with.

Ds is massively into Star wars at the minute so anything to do with that? Also wimpy kid book Dd is getting Hollister hoody, beats headphones, David Walliams book itunes

My ds is 9, he's asked for a beanbag and an Xbox game. I got him a Lego nexo knights set, the Lego doctor who set, a bop it, a Harry potter ravenclaw scarf, a pokemon tshirt, and loads of books (Dan tdm, David Williams, Percy Jackson, how to train your Dragon, diary of a wimpy kid) got him catan Jr board game and back to the future on DVD.

Thanks! The wireless headphones are a good idea.
DS hugely into Pokemon and I've managed to get some figures (from Japan so no idea if they will arrive before Christmas).
So far - DD - stable set (she collects Schleich horsey stuff); horse brushes; horse hoodie; bake off recipe book; Lego Big Ben; few other small horsey bits.
DS - Rubiks snake; 6 Pokemon figures...err that's all for now!!
Will definitely get the wimpy kid and Walliams books.

DD (11) is getting a laptop (schoolwork), and a data stick. Some Zoella bits from Superdrug, a pair of flashy trainers, a couple of books (Zoella and Walliams) and some small bits of jewellery.

I must watch this thread. Have no idea for mine, both similarly aged. Other than super dry tshirts.

My ds will be 9 in Feb. His main presents is tickets to chitty chitty bang bang the musical. He's never seen a show except the panto. Other stuff includes Lego dimensions characters, scion fix towel, batman fragrance set (from Next), superman bowl and cup, personalised m and m's, a detective board game, 200 piece jigsaw, dressing gown, Lego technics plane, bfg dvd, solar powered plane, strange but true book, slushie cup, horrible histories books box set, a joules top. That's it for now. Will add in some craft related stuff and the obligatory chocolate Santa and coins. Maybe a couple of other bits but not sure yet. Am thinking some super posh trainers.

Plus chocolate, smellies, craft kit each

Ds is 9. Really difficult this year as he's got all outdoor toys, not a huge reader and not long after a birthday where he got his football gear and drone. Plus I'm attempting to cut back as he doesn't really play with toys anymore and it's a waste of money. So far I've got

Kinetic sand (thought it's a bit young for him but he asked for it)
Guitar
Dan tdm book and guitar music book
Tube heroes figurines
Ps4 games
Match attax mega tin
Hoverball
Solar power machines thing to build
Nerf gun
Usual smellies, slippers, pjs, felt tips, stocking fillers

Might buy something lego related too, haven't decided yet.
