I asked DD 8 what she wants for Christmas and apart from a Charlie Bear and a new riding hat she hasn't come up with anything. Any suggestions as I'm being asked by family and friends for ideas. I've bought lots of books already as she's a keen reader and has an ipad and a kindle. Thanks.

We are getting ours design a friend stuff. Jaqueline Wilson annual, hair chalk, stationery sets, ugg type boots, clip on ear rings and her very own box of chocolates. To stop her pinching mine !

Dd wrote her list yesterday

Lego friends ( the new forest sets )
Lush bath bombs
Bath bomb making set
Crystal growing kit
Sewing/craft stuff

I am getting her a jewellery box full of cheap jewellery from Amazon ( all for under £1 a piece ) and I have bought her the ligh up cushion from Argos smile. I'm sure her list will get bigger over the next month.

An iPod touch.

She says if Santa brings that she knows she will be very lucky and won't expect anything else smile, but has dropped lots of hints on other things she likes just in case the iPod doesn't happen grin.

A crystal furbling
Ever after high dolls

My DD wants an iPad mini. We said if she saves up half (pocket and birthday money) we'll pay the other half. She's busy squirrelling away for that atm.

Otherwise she wants:

Sylvanian families
Fabric for her harmulika kits
Jacqueline Wilson books etc
Trendy clothes

marking place here... not convinced dd (8) would love any of these...aaaargh...

She wants a pogo stick and a radio/cd player.

I have also lined up:
(Too many books)
Onerepublic music
Erm that's it.

She is not massively into toys, I think the books will be the main draw anyway.

loubielou31 Wed 29-Oct-14 23:26:56

I'm loving some of these ideas.
On DDs list is
A two wheel scooter, (she currently has a maxi micro scooter)
Lego friends,
Brownie Annual,
It's so hard to know.

Does your daughter like horses? The books are from a while ago- but my nine year old sister is horse mad and a book lover so we have brought her all the Heartland books for her Xmas present.
