Godchildren, dnephews etc. All DCs are DDs so ok with the girls but not sure re the boys. Was ok in the jigsaws, Lego phases but now 11 to 16.
Help? Ideas please? £10-20 ideally as rather a few!

I've got some cologne for my nephew (12). Now he's a bigger boy it kind if rules out toys etc. iTunes vouchers could be good too. Hope you find something grin

Came in to say LEGO, lego & lego.

But the 16 year old is getting a bit old for it. So suggest lynx & technics lego, iTunes cards & cash.

cash
socks
smellies (shower gel, body spray, aftershave)
chocs

What about a cinema voucher ? Or if you like "a present wrapped up" then a cinema voucher wrapped round a packet of popcorn?

Cinema vouchers are a good idea. If near a cineworld they do a box with 2 vouchers, and snacks that can be wrapped for Xmas.

And socks. DS doesn't wear socks in pairs due to combination of supreme laziness & fashion so have bought him a 'pair' of 3 oddsocks. Am sure he will find it hysterically funny.

Love it Nancy - my dd never wears a pair that match - she'd find that amusing too. grin
