Maybe a book set for that age group? You can get collections for teens for less than £10 from The Book People.

Our local radio is doing similar and suggests CDs and clothes.

I did wonder about CDs - how awful if they have nothing to play them on. Any thoughts on that OP?

A watch perhaps?

For something similar in previous years I've bought headphones, TK Maxx vouchers, iTunes or Amazon vouchers.

Also how about a nice bag / rucksack? Something a YP can take out every day and feel good about using. When in school uniform it is often accessories like this that can mark teens out as different.

Thanks Pistachio. Good luck with your collecting.

My 11yo DNephew still likes the Wimpy Kid books, and they are quite accessible for a range of reading abilities. I think the rucksack sounds like a great idea. Toiletries - lynx etc - PJs?

David Walliams, The Alex Rider series, Tom Gates and Beast Quest all seemed popular with the 9 - 11 year olds I was reading with in school. For the slightly younger boys Captain underpants went down well to.

Skateboard - I've seem the small ones around £11 so not too far over budget. There are a few scooters around that price to which might suit 5 - 8ish
