We really need to limit how much we spend on Christmas, but still want to get our nieces (ages 15, 16 and 17) and nephew (age 13) something - the max limit is £10. We did toiletries and chocolate for the girls last year, so looking for something different.

The 17 year old knows how to make herself look nice without going over the top and is at college. The 16 year old would probably go for anything. The 15 year old isn't really into her appearance (make up/toiletry wise), arty things or anything interlectual - she has a bit of a weight problem so although not opposed to buying chocolate I would only buy something small. Our nephew isn't arty, but likes making things with lego, meccano (sorry about the spelling if not correct).

We have the same limit here and for the last few years it has been £10 in a card. My kids and nephews love it!! Sad but true.

My DC are this age and really they prefer vouchers/ cash. Cinema, Nandos, Superdrug, iTunes are all top choices.

I was going to add vouchers too. Starbucks or the ilk.

Ours absolutely love the maps we got them from Amazon which you scratch off the countries you have visited. Also, posters are good for all teens. Funny photographs of them?

Posters for my teenage niece from ebay. She asks for Music vouchers, band t-shirts and posters. My other teen niece loves fancy hair stuff and bath bits.
Do they read? I love buying teenagers books.

Could get one (or all) of them a Sharpie pen set - there's some really good deals on amazon at the moment. I just got one for my 20yo sister

ASOS have some nice Jack Wills stuff for about £10. Socks, pencil cases, purses, bags etc.
