No idea what to get DD1 (7) or DD2 (4) for Xmas(11 Posts)
Usually, by this time of year I am in full swing - but I just can't work out what to do this time. Plus I'm working full time, so don't casually mooch around shops anymore.
DD1 is crafty. She doesn't really play with toys but she loves to make stuff. I asked her what she wanted and she basically wrote a list of what's in the Argos catalogue.
DD2 likes little collectables (ponies, shelich figures). Her list includes a Christmas train (she has a brio set but I can't find anything Christmassy for it), an angel set (in which the Angels fly) and a Santa trap.
I despair. Please help.
My dd is in the middle of those ages at 5. She's getting
A santa trap would be easy - you can photoshop online videos to make it look like santas in your living room.
You can get flying tinkerbell etc?
Would DD2 be interested in a Melissa and Doug castle? TK Maxx has pink ones which are v good got imaginative play with ponies, animals, frozen dolls - you name it.
Trains, ooh I luffs trains. Bigjigs is interchangeable with brio and doesn't stick like the shit IKEA tracks

For DD1 have you considered something like a craft Table. Saw one advertised somewhere
unhelpful but good light, access to drawers, plenty of adhesives, storage and with protective cover could be something she and DD2 use for years?
My youngest are 7 and 5.
DD2 (7) is getting a bike as her main present as the one she has is far too small.
DD3 (5) really wanted a lullaby (cot mobile) so I have got her one and a set of dolls bunk beds that I picked up second hand that she can attach it to.
Some of the presents my DD 7 has asked for
Don't wake dad
Sprayza pen set
Choc lolly maker
Candle making kit
My dd is 4, she will be getting
Baby Annabell bath time doll
A couple of Lottie dolls + horse
Some Playmobil bits - playground, swan princess boat
An elsa Barbie type doll
Some binoculars (real ones)
Probably some Lego
A pram for baby A (from grandparents)
Then some craft sets inc play dough.
She's also sharing a set of playmags with her brothers.
The best present she had for her 4th birthday was a set of drawers (I think from WH Smith) which I filled with different types of paper, pens and envelopes. She and her brothers have used it every day.
DD(7) is getting
Password Journal 9
Adictaball large puzzle
Sony music player and speakers from grandparents
She also just got roller boots for her birthday plus a bike and little live pets
DD (4) is getting
Octonauts octopod and peso X-ray viewer
Hungry hippos game
Letter fishing game
Nerf small guns (against my better judgement!)
And some other stuff I can't remember grin
mine are the same ages and I'm also stuck for ideas
DD7 wants a hamster and will probably get it (after christmas).
also books / craft things / playmobil / lego
DD4 doesn't seem to want anything, so she will get playmobil / lego and other general toys. but I still need ideas for a 'big present'
Dd is 5 and we have got her a maxi micro scooter.
Ds1 has got her a doh Vinci set.
Ds2 has got her sweets.
In laws are getting her Blublu the baby dolphin (godawful thing but she's been going on about it for ages!)
Dad got her the new Cinderella dress.
Playmobil blind bag
I can't remember what else!
I'm just weighing up whether to go for a Playmobil Mansion or a Hape All Season House for our 4.6yr DD's main present. (Any advice...?)
And then she's getting a double-sided globe jigsaw, Jelly bean dispenser (doubles as a money box), various books including a Willy Wonka book (lovely gold cover with Roald Dahl illustrations), a giant silver chocolate coin, scented felt tips, Science Museum alien putty, some paper straws, a paper kaleidoscope and some crafty things (TIGER), new PJs, some gingerbread and a Chinese fortune cat (the ones that wave).
From family members, she's getting a cuckoo clock (Muji version), a indoor / outdoor den set and a see-through dome umbrella.
Hope there's something to inspire you in there.
Thanks, I have finally started.
DD1 now has roller skates, chocolate pen & a selection of robo aquatic life.
DD2 has tinker bell figurines and a rainbows uniform. I'm now looking for a tiny fairy castles for her... Any ideas on these?
