My DS (2.5) is telling anyone who asks that he would like 'socks' for Christmas this year. When I told my friend, she said that her child once answered her with 'Mummy, I'd reeeeeeally like my own packet of Blu Tack'.

Any other great 'modest' Xmas present requests?

I once put Blu Tack in DS's stocking..he was overjoyed. He is always acquiring Blu Tack from school

DD2 once came up with a disarmingly modest Christmas list. I can't remember what was on it, but it's so lovely, because they can only be delighted when they get the little things they asked for, and something big as well.

My ds asked for a yoyo last year. His list is a little longer this year though smile

My DS (nearly 4) just wants a stripy hula hoop.

"A red one"

No idea what needs to be red, just - what present do you want? "A red one."

My dd (13) has only asked for a jar of Nutella this year. It was a packet of Pringles last year hmm strange child that she is grin

My dd(7) has just written to fc. As well as things for her she has asked for 'nice stuff for mummy'. I am not sure if she thinks I don't have nice things?! Because I certainly don't need anything. But it did make me want to give her a big squeeze.

Cats, have you seen the Nutella cookery book? I'm going to get it for my dd smile

I did see online that you could get personalised jars of nutella, might be worth a search

My DD2 once just asked for an umbrella hat!

DD1 (nearly 15) only has books on her list this year

SouthernOne Tue 25-Nov-14 13:04:47

sorry guys seems no longer available online, it does say in store at selfridges, can't see if it's a current thing though (nutella)

Ds2, now aged 10, asked for a pack of pegs for Christmas when he was 4 - he was obsessed with making dens with blankets and airers and hated not being able to have pegs because I had washing on the line!

A big cardboard box. Mmmmmm

i saw them doing the personalised jars of nutella in the birmingham bullring last night for �3.99 a jar!! I was tempted then i realised it would be �4 for a jar of nutella!!!

My 3 (11) (10) (9) want a can each of silly string

Ds2 has a habit of getting fixated on one random thing as a present, usually modest, thankfully! Two years ago it was a yo-yo, last year was an umbrella, this year it appears to be a minion onesie. He genuinely squeals with excitment when he gets that one thing, he likes the other things we get him but at least the fixation means we know he's going to have a great christmas!

Thurlow-my ds (2) wants a 'purple one!'

When dd was 3 she asked for a lollipop, a book and a jigsaw. She repeated this little list to everyone who asked her what she'd like and got some very sympathetic looks as if I'd indoctrinated her grin. Once she'd found those presents in her stocking she wasn't really bothered about opening anything else.

Dd has asked for a ladybug yoyo and a hello kitty balloon!

Badvocinapeartree Tue 25-Nov-14 13:32:07

Ds2 asked for blu tack last year smile
This year it's a guitar and camera!

DD once wrote in a letter to Santa:

Please, please, please can I have a Satsuma this year.

I had forgotten to put one in a couple of years back blush

Raahh Tue 25-Nov-14 13:33:54

Dd1 (8) has ' a watermelon' on her list.

I'm beginning to thing Santa may be making a Tesco-delivery stylee substitution grin

RueDeWakening Tue 25-Nov-14 13:34:00

My dd and ds1 both got a pack of blu tack in their stockings last Christmas, both were delighted with it grin

My DS drew his Christmas gift wish for a display at nursery. In with all the dolls and teddys was his request for a bowl of crisps!
