I need to buy an Xmas present for a seven year old Italian girl. I would like to get something quite 'British cool' for her if that makes sense. Last year she was into winx.

My dc are little so have no idea what a quite grown up seven year old would be into.. She has reasonable English. What is cool to seven year olds?

Also, what do trendy 27 year olds like for Christmas? Tend to fail a bit with our part time nanny on presents and would like to surprise her!

How much do you want to spend on each?

When you say the nanny is trendy, what do you mean by that? She dresses nicely or that she is very trend conscious generally? Does she have any specific interests?

Up to fifty pounds each so would like to get something good. Nanny loves beauty things but runs a small nail business and is qualified to do most things beauty like. She is trend conscious in terms of clothes. Also on slimming world so alcohol and chocs out! She does like jewellery and is quite house proud.

If she likes beauty, then perhaps something from Space NK. Normally around the beginning of november they start selling lots of lovely gift sets. The Nars ones are always lovely and usually include limited edition products.

Otherwise maybe she would like a Jo Malone or Diptyque Christmas candle or candle set.

Subscription to beauty magazine or fashion ?

Subscription to scratch magazine for the nanny.

Nice diary and pen so she can keep appointments noted.

for 7 y/o;


Doc Marten style boots or fancy wellies and umbrella set if you know her size

Toy horse and stable set, with a rider in full kit including jodpurs, eg Julip which is a British company

Sylvanian Families? they are available on Italian Amazon but I always thought they were primarily a UK/ American thing, perhaps someone will be along to correct me.

Thanks everyone!

Is cath kidston cool for 7 year olds? For the satchel idea maybe?

Accessorize is a good call!

my 12 y/o DD & friends have liked Cath K for a while, her designs were definitely cool quite recently.

My 8yo would definitely approve of anything form Cath K
