I need ideas please. Instead of starting a thread asking specifically for ideas just for my DC, I thought we could write the age of the DC and what you are planning on getting them in order for it to be useful for everyone smile

Thanks in advance.

DS1 will be about to turn 5. He is having Switch & Go dinosaurs, Schleich dinosaurs, dinosaur books, a globe, Lego, scooter & fossil bits (includes gifts from other people & birthday).

DS2 (2) is having a Brio grave, wooden road/ vehicles, Grimms rainbow, story CDs and maybe a Playmobil 1.2.3 house. Again, includes gifts from others.

Ds is 8 and wants a tv in his room but I'm not too sure to be honest. His other ask is a giant African land snail. Oh god. Which is the least bad option?!
He's also having another new football to go with the ten he has hmm, some books, some fossils, a couple of new games, a nerf gun and target, some Star Wars Lego figures and probably a soft toy of some sort.

Dd will be 2 on Christmas Eve. She is having the leapfrog ice cream cart, a playmobil playground, some dressing up shoes, a kitty surprise (horrific), a fisher price medical bag, peppa pig jewellery box and some play jewellery and a flower building toy set. That will be split between her birthday and Christmas.

DD is 4 - she is getting a bike and has a few barbies/my little pony things.

DS is 5 - he is also getting a bike and a captain America shield, Thor's hammer, a transformers remote control car.

I ordered them a build-a-bear each yesterday as they had 70% off superhero clothes.

I will get them a few extra pieces but only little bits as we're cutting back majorly this year as DH is learning to drive and we have baby things to buy.

Halfords have that Christmas saving plan which is fantastic as it doesn't seem so bad. We'll pick them up end of November and can pay what we like until then.

I also downloaded an app called 'santas bag' which is very good!

DS will be 5.6. He's getting playmobil children's hospital, playmobil fire engine and I may twitch and buy the ambulance as well. He's getting a big box of Lego city from my parents. He also wants a Go glow R2-D2 to be friends with the Go Glow BB8 he got last Christmas.

Ds1 is 13 and might get a Nintendo switch.

Ds2 is 3 and will probably get shapes, shape sorters, shape puzzles and probably wooden/magnetic letter and numbers. (He has ASD and loves those things, if you're thinking that seems a bit "young"). Oh, and a dark den.

Dd1 is 7, she's getting a wooden dressing table, rocket mic, Jojo siwa headphones, hair bits, doll & book, kids sewing machine, shopkins shoppies doll and maybe the shopkins plane & some heelys.

Dd2 will be 3 in December. She's getting a wooden kitchen, happyland bus, bing car & shop, Melissa & Doug basic skills board, fisher price movi (from nana) baby alive snackin lily & a wooden highchair. I've also seen the little tikes place which I'd love to get!

Neverwas you've just reminded me how much Dd loves the kitty surprise advert, she's two as well. But why is the cat so ugly? It looks like it has run face first into a wall of paint. I'd be more inclined to buy it if it looked like a normal cat!
I might get it anyway. I had the puppy version as a kid so it make me all nostalgic blush

PodgeBod Wed 27-Sep-17 00:20:13

DD1 will be 3 in February. She is getting a kindle kids tablet, a bing doll that wets itself, read with me violet, a cry baby, a paw patrol playset and some books.
DD2 is 1, she is getting the toot toot fire station, beat bo dance mat, twirlywoo boat, and a wooden post box.
These are all dependent on getting them in the Argos 3 for 2 tomorrow, though. They both get a stocking with little bits in it.

DS,15, no idea
DD, 6, not a clue

Dd1 is 16 and would like a laptop (GCSE year and on to A levels next year). Will probably get this around novemeber/December time.

So far I've got her:
Novelty hi top slippers as she lives in her converse!,
Sprocket (joint pressies with dd2 as don't see the point in getting them one each),
Leather cardsafe purse,
5pk socks,
5 pk knickers

Harry Potter snitch fidget spinner,
Ravenclaw drinks coaster,
Ravenclaw pen,
Sprocket paper,
Charcoal face mask.

Dd2 is 13 week on Friday. She would like a tablet for watching you tube and Netflix on. I think I'm going to get her a Chromebook though instead so she can use it as a tablet or a laptop for homework.

So far I've got her:
Sprocket (as above),
Unicorn colouring book,
Leather cardsafe purse,
Bluetooth shower speaker,
5pk socks,
5pk knickers.

Funny bookmark,
Sprocket paper.

Ds is 10. He would like video camera for making you tube videos!

So far I've got him:
Call of duty,
Fishing for floaters,
Home alone colouring book,
Monsters Inc monopoly,
Xbox one controller keypad,
Five night's at Freddy's scare game,
Xbox legend hoodie,
5pk socks,
3pk trunks,
Giant whoopee cushion,
Ark survival.

Xbox controller thumb grips,
Hand putty,
Magnet rattlers,
Finger pen,
Noisy slime,
Booger slime.

I will get the electrical mains nearer Christmas. I always do a big Primark shop before Christmas as girls like the jeans from there, so always get them jeans, maybe a top or two and stocking fillers. I also need to go to Superdrug to buy make up bits for their stockings. Ds is very hard to buy for as all he likes is his Xbox, tablet and occasionally plays with cars, dinosaurs or transformers.

Can't wait for the shops to get rid of the Halloween stuff and go full on christmas mode! 🎗

Podge I tried to choose the least horrific one. It's a tortoiseshell. The white one wasn't too bad either. The kittens are cute though, you can see one of them, it purrs. Dd loves cats though and babies. Now she will have baby cats!
