what you getting the kiddies this year !!(48 Posts)
Its our first proper xmas this year and I am really excited , what you getting the children and what to do you do to make the day special ?
DSis (13- living here in foster care)- 1D tickets for June.
One Hollister top.
1D stationery and 1D fragrance.
DS1 (5)- big present is a bike.
New bike helmet
Cheap secondhand Lego
Remote controlled car
Mini snapback hat
A new helmet and extensions for scooter
Ah right thanks. So just like the baseball caps when I was a child then. None of those fancy buckles in my day you know
a snap back is adjustable, it has a plastic band with little pegs that snap into holes.
Oh I thought a snapback was one of those bracelets that you snap
Ds-12 a couple of Xbox games, a new pair of converse,some c-d'd and DVD's,clothes and some books.
Dd-19 months a kitchen, Doc mcstuffins talking doll, Thomas the tank ride on, a couple of the Thomas trains, a tea set for the bath,clothes and some books.
More excited for Dd this yr as she's older and will b able to unwrap her pressie and I got some suprises for Ds that I know he'll love!
For my DSCs:
DSS (21) lego marvel xbox game, an 'ask me about my ninja' t-shirt (heard about that on mn ), possibly a Segway driving experience? Or car related stuff if he's bought his by then.
DSD1 (15) not sure - something Asa Butterfield related, maybe converse or something, struggling for ideas this year!
DSD2 (15) manga drawing stuff, geeky hoodie, DVD box sets
These threads are always surprisingly educational - I keep going off to amazon to look up stuff I've never heard of
But I have to ask, what is the difference between a 'SnapBack' and a regular baseball cap?!
DTD1 (16)- money. She's saving for a tablet and has done dog walking and babysitting so will be able to get an Ipad+case. Also:
Tickets to ice skating for her/her friends
Some DVDs costing £1 each.
iTunes £15 card.
DTD2 (16)- she's saving for a trip to visit her friend who moved to Itsly with her parents last year. So money.
A new keyboard.
Money again. He wants to buy his girlfriend a tablet for her birthday a few months after, so all money is going towards this.
Razor and some lynx stuff.
Some guitar picks.
Some guitar music.
A snapback, some tops.
Glow in the dark face paint.
3D draw set.
Paint your own model horse.
Ds 4.4 has

I try not to get loads of stuff as their birthdays are February and April so there's a steady influx of toys in those few months!
My oldest is 14, she's asked for an electric guitar, a pile of steampunk clothes, band t shirts, Pokemon toys, an original Gameboy ŵith the Pokemon games (I am delighted to have managed to get them from eBay after some hassle) CDs books and DVDs. I've also bought her makeup and beauty products but she knows I do that every year. She's asked for cosmetic contact lenses (cats eye ones) but there is no chance I will buy her them. She's also after another pair of docs and a pair of goth boots but I think I'll let her get them herself out of the money she gets. I'm getting her tickets for one of her favourite bands but she doesn't know they're playing so I'm hoping for a big reaction from them.
It's not so much fun when they are teenagers
The littlest is 9 and she's getting
nothing on my nerves with her hoarding
Possibly a hudl
Monster high school
Too many monster high, equestria girls and ever after high dolls
Lots of arts stuff (she loves making things)
Possibly an animation kit
Lego star wars - DH picked can't remember what it is
Monster high party room set
I can't remember to be honest because I've got most of it already and it's packed away!
Clothes, DVDs, CDs and lots of books
They both always get new bedding, pjs, slippers, housecoats and sweets as well.

BeaWheesht Spy manual is called Spy Guidebook by Colin King and is on Amazon. Sorry I can't do links . Reviews seem promising and at that price it's worth the risk! I'm hoping it'll be a nice balance of stuff he can do alone and stuff we can do together.
Playmobil pool seems very popular this year! DD is in love with it having played at a friend's house, she has no idea it's coming for her though
lecce where did you get the spy manual?
Ds (7) is getting
HH battle packs and books
Lego Star Wars set

Tablet (v cheap)
