Ideas for boy 7 and girl 3?

Looking to buy my little cousins (boy aged 7 and girl aged 3) a present this Christmas. This is my first Christmas out of the parental home, and I'd like to buy something for them from me- instead of signing my name on whatever my DM and DF (their aunty and uncle by for them)

Looking to spend around £10 each. Maybe more £25-30 for a bigger joint present.

It seems that at face value they are a stereotypical football crazy boy and princesses and Peppa Pig girl- but they (more so the 7 year old) are showing more of an interest in reading and the world around them, thanks to things like Horrible Histories and I'd really like to get something that would cater to that aspect.

I was thinking books- maybe a few Michael Morpurgos (the ones I liked when I was around 8 were The Butterfly Lion, Kensukes Kingdom and Warhorse) and a lovely big picture book for the younger one. I don't know what to buy the 3 year old bookwise, but I was thinking perhaps a big book of fairy stories with nice colour plates that she can keep and to help her with her reading. - but I don't know if they'll find this a bit boring (I wouldn't have at their age, but all children are different)

Is there any other suggestions? If I was to go with books, I'd make them a little gift bag with a little Hotel Chocolat santa/penguin and a child-sized mug (both of them love milky tea and hot chocolate smile )

* (Their aunty and uncle) for them obviously. Sorry it's late! x

Anyone?! I don't have any kids myself so I'm clueless!
