I need to get a present each for friend's kids. Budget is about £15 each (happy to do joint present). I haven't seen them for about 3 yrs so have no idea what they like. DH doesn't want to give vouchers & is thinking board game or t-shirt each???

Also needs to be something not too heavy as I'll be sending by post

Book via Amazon.

top shop voucher or new look for girl

They do like reading, or at least they did bury kids are much younger so I have no idea what kids their age read

The girl isn't that interested in fashion so top shop doesn't really work either confused

some quirky socks?

can you find out what books they might like?

Bobochic Sat 26-Nov-16 11:55:13

Can you not make some book suggestions to their parents? Any decent bookshop will give you some ideas.

Will Google quirky socks! Yes I suppose I could ask what books

But why not vouchers?? They love them at thst age and now you can get Nandos or Starbucks which always go down well with the teens I know including my own!

I didn't think of that kind of vouchers.Really good idea but for some reason my DH thinks it's a cop out but I'd rather that than getting something they don't want. I'll see what cafes etc they have near them

or cinema vouchers?

I have bought my 17yo nephew a popcorn maker, but definitely have it sent via amazon as the postage was extortionate!

Or a lightbox, dancing water speakers? All equally heavy of course!

weediculous Sat 26-Nov-16 12:21:16

Ooh cinema vouchers, might go with that. Wtf are dancing water speakers?

skinnyamericano Sat 26-Nov-16 12:32:57

this kind of tat!

Cinema vouchers are a great idea - my DC would love that.

weediculous Sat 26-Nov-16 12:40:58

Cinema tickets it is. Thank you.
My kids would love the water speakers!

weediculous Sat 26-Nov-16 15:42:06

Thanks Belle, going to get cinema vouchers. Will get my DD some pjs though

I did a cinema box for my teen niece last year.

Cinema voucher, popcorn, drinks and chocolate, she really really liked it, she's asked for it again!

vouchers all the way! I've got nieces and nephews approaching and in their teens. The boys have game vouchers and the girlies have h&m or primark fsmile
