I have friends who I'd like to get their children a little something but I don't know them too well (relatively new friends)
Both children are girls and are age 3 and 7. All I know is they both love Disney.

It makes it worse as I don't have kid other than DSS so I haven't got a clue.

Do you have a budget in mind?

Frozen cuddly toys? A Sven and an Olaf (for them to fight over haha!).

Or a frozen jigsaw to share?

Or books? Or a board game? Or a craft set?

Thank you flowers I am thinking about £10 each. So far i am thinking about a soft toy for the younger and maybe an art set for the eldest.

That was easy smile

My standby present for that age group is to buy a plastic wallet and fill it with stickers, pens, feathers, felt, foam sheets and card for crafting. It doesn't matter if they have some already and you don't risk duplication as you do with other toys.

Can I gatecrash? I have probably £20 to spend on an 11 year old girl I hardly know and my own DD is an adult so I'm clueless - is there anything out there all 11 year old girls will love?

Dvds are always good - just depends what they already have. I noticed a load of Disneys in Sainsbury's for £3 last week

Hassled, the 11 year old girls I know seem to love nice pens, pencils and pencil cases as they are always comparing. Lip balm is also very popular and you can get in sweet flavours like refreshers etc. Fleece pjs and fluffy socks are also good if she is a standard size.

I'd go for some sort of craft kit for both of them, it doesn't matter then if they've already got something similar, it just gets used up.
