Presents that don't take up loads of space....

Both my DD's bedrooms and playroom are full. I'm planning to have a clear out before Christmas but equally I'm trying to think of toys etc that won't take up any remaining space!

For my DD's birthday last month we bought garden toys for her just for this reason!

I have a (will be) 5 year old and 2.5 year old...

The 5 year old will be getting Disney Inifinity 3 (space saving wink) but both sets of grandparents and godparents are already asking me what they can get and I have no idea!

Anyone else have this problem? smile

I feel the pain one hundred percent but have no answers I'm afraid.

Dd2 is 15mo so everything is huge and space-stealing, luckily dd1 is less into big things, but various plastic castles add up!

This looks like a pretty good, self contained, toy.

It is currently down to £15, on Amazon. I daren't do an Amazon link. Last time I did, I somehow linked to my wishlist blush

I'm thinking of getting DD dressing up stuff for Christmas - at least that can be hung up in the wardrobe.

Cash for their savings accounts grin.

Tickets for theatre/magazine subscription/trip to the zoo etc etc.

Clothes.

Books.

Charm bracelet - add a charm each birthday/Christmas

micro scooters.

If you can bear it, Nintendo wii or DS are fun to have and don't take up much space. You can add new games each birthday and Xmas.

Oh, dressing up outfits are a good idea smile

My mum gets us panto tickets and a meal out for Xmas. She's also paid for a term of swimming lessons or similar in the past. Or you could have theme park tickets for something to look forward to later in the year. National trust membership.
No space taken up, things to look forward to, lovely memories smile

Bits for a large present - so furniture for a dollhouse or leap pad games.

Garden toys that live outside

Clothes they need

We've also got swimming lessons for lo before.

This is ideal for a space saving present - 3 in 1 - it's a book, it's a mat, it's a fire engine - £14.99. www.wickeduncle.co.uk/presents/boys/all-boys/convertible-fire-engine-book

And it's even cheaper here!

The Schleich fairies are not big and much loved in this house.

Another big hit are the sticky mosaics craft sets - not big and gets used up.
