One year DS2's list was mainly different kinds of cheese. Luckily I found an online site that did them. He was only twelve at the time.Weird child.

Oatmeal squares breakfast cereal (teenage DD)

You can only buy it in the US so it is far too expensive for everyday.

Christmas Knickers with pockets and grey and white tiger leggings are my unusual requests that I haven’t managed to track down yet!

Omg tinsel my 10 year old wants mash and gravy too!! What is that all about? Is it a new fashion brand/toy/game that we don't know about and are taking too literally??

When DS was 2 I bought him a lint roller for his stocking. He used to pinch ours all the time and cry “roll me!” as if it was a massage tool. He was over the moon to have his own!

Big Christmas bow.

I eventually figured out she had seen it in Claire's accessories.

As a seven year old I asked for four pork pies, a fact my family haven't forgotten as I've received them a few times since! Plus other gifts, lucky for me.

Aww, the weirdest thing on my son’s Christmas list is sunglasses - not very wintery.

“Sparkly shiny wand like Oscar at nursery has.”

There IS no Oscar at nursery. I asked, just in case I could see this exotic item.

Taking DD to the local panto between Christmas and New Year. Hoping there will be some kind of LED spinning joy there she will be excited by.

White sliced loaf was always on my DDs list.

My Ds wrote a number of amusing thank you letters when he got cash when he was about 10.

Thanks for the £10 I am putting it towards a tattoo (Ps. don't tell Mum)

Thanks for the money. I am spending it on wine, women and song.

I let him send them out too.

I didn't let my other son send this thank you note to a relative who had bought a football for a child in Africa in his name.

He wrote: "Thanks for the football. One day when I am visiting my goat I'll be able to play with it!" the goat had been a previous present from the same relative but at least he remembered!

Dd has asked for a dishwasher coz she's sick of washing up.
I keep telling her as soon as we have the kitchen done we will get one.

My 4yo wants a blue retractable dog lead with his name on! We do at least have a dog or it would be more weird.

My nephew asked for his brother's toy. Not one like that toy, no the actual thing. He didn't want the toy, he just didn't want his brother to have it either.
