I need ideas for stuff for pressies for 1-4 girls who aren't girly.
They are aged between 11 and 13.
They can be a bit active or sleepover things.
No make up, nails etc as to take to school.

There is a really nice anker Bluetooth speaker on amazon daily deals today. It is reduced to £16.99 and gets really good reviews. They can connect their phone, ipod etc to it to listen either at home or on sleepovers etc. I was going to buy one for my 12 year old dd but I think she wants a docking station more.

My children love everything from Tink shop

My 13 y/o dd wants a pack of multi coloured sharpies, a pretty fountain pen, Harry Potter stuff, would also be pleased with nice (eg bamboo) socks, stabilo pens as above, nice hardback note book or good sketch pad.

Last year DD got a tin of sketching pencils and one of those posable wooden figures. Anything arty usually goes down well.

This year she'll probably get an adult colouring book, purse and new phone case. Like the idea of a wing up toy too. We had racing sprouts in crackers a few years ago which were fun. They come out with the tree decs each year but I think we're down to only one working.

Dobble is possibly the most addictive card game ever made...

some lovely ideas here, thank you.
I have bought a few bits and pieces but thought it would be nice to be able to take some things back with her to play with friends.

Great ideas though as anything big won't fit in the small spaces they have to store things.

Fluxx and Werewolf are popular at DD's school, and both are just small packs of cards.
