For our nephews. We don't really want to spend more than £10 each as we are pretty skint.

They both like the ipods (but can't get £10 vouchers anymore) and minecraft and football.

Any ideas?

I'd like to know this too.

I just sent my roughly same age cousins a nice crisp tenner each in a card - I don't know what to get them, and figured they'd enjoy having the money to spend . . .

Lego Minecraft... it's more expensive than £10. But you could get them set to share?
Airfix Kit?
Board game to share... Othello, Connect 4 etc?

My DSs are 9 and 10 and the crisp tenner suggestion is a winner. They love getting to choose themselves.

I think a tenner is great. I had aunts and uncles who sent me money when I was that sort of age. It was like getting jewels and rich spices! Money of my own! I even saved a bit of it at times smile

My 11 yr old was delighted with ten pounds to spend, he will add it to other bits of money he was gifted.

My boys are 9 and just 12.
How about goalie gloves, football annuals, calendars or posters of favourite teams. Minecraft books.
Alternatively my two loved those money box chocolate dispensers, about £8 each I think, or magic sets, gooey science and all that stuff.
You can't go wrong with sending the money either.

Minecraft paper craft.

Football! Mine get through loads and loads of them with punctures... A new football is ALWAYS welcome...although tricky to wrap!

Nerf guns?

Match Attax? Money is a winner here though.

Do they have FIFA 15? If so you can buy Fifa 15 points card for £10 on Amazon. Online code or physical card.

Or cash with a bag of sweets.
