What are their interests? I got my DD a metal detector when she was 9...big hit!

She and other kids spent hours with it.

Also, skateboard or roller boots.

My DD (8) has asked for 'suprises' so far. She'll be getting something along the lines of:
1) a mountain bike
Or
2) a PS4 with Just Dance
Or
3) a Nintendo Switch
Or
4) a laptop
as a main present

As well as:
1) Harry Potter sorting hat
2) Harry Potter Lego
3) Roller Skates from The Skate Hut
4) Lush bathbombs
5) Make-up
6) Smiggles stocking fillers
7) A chocolate Santa
8) Traditional jar of sweets

Thanks all.

Dd10 isn't interested in any toys or crafts. It was her birthday last week and she's not looked at anything I got her.
Dd8 hates pink and unicorns but has so many lols and barbies that she doesn't bother with. She's asked for a reborn but if I got her that she wouldn't get any more presents

What do they both love doing/watching? For DD10 would she like to choose something specific, or give you a list of ideas? I always get mine to do a list and stick to it, I've learnt in the past if I get random extra gifts they don't usually play with them unless they're closely related to what they asked for. Would it be a problem for DD8 to just get the one special present, if that's what she wants and knows not to expect more? My DD is also 8 and usually just focuses on one present so I fill in with things she needs like clothes that I was going to buy anyway (she loves getting new clothes, so it's not a hardship for her).
