I’ve nearly finished getting my kids presents and then I can move on to the adults but as I would like a few more ideas I was wondering what you was getting for your kids?

What ages are they?

Lisamac1988 Sat 14-Nov-20 09:50:29

I have a 6 and 7 year old girl and a 10 year old boy that has autism so I really have to think outside of the box for him as I want it to be something he will like

Mine are a bit older and my ds, who also has asd, is happy with anything as long as it’s Lego!

Erasable markers have been a hit here.
Moonballs seem to have taken off again in school so I might get them new colours.
Big hits from previous years were a gymnast’s ribbon on a stick (I’ve no gymnasts here but they both loved this), a book of hand shadows with a torch, and a morse code guide with a torch.

These paper dolls went down really well with dd a couple of years ago and kept her busy for an afternoon. There are lots of less expensive ones on Etsy too.

Dd1 (16)
Ipad
Weighted blanket
Stitch 2020 plush from Disney store

Dd2 (14, ASD)
Lego technics truck/crane
Lego Harry Potter house
Lego speed car set
Kenetic sand
Bird felting kit
Light up race track thing from Amazon

Me and DD2 tried out dd1’s weighted blanket last week and now dd2 wants one, your DS might like one.

light up tube track

Dd2 loves anything that needs building, marble run is one of her favourites, Lego, meccano, knex etc...

I could easily get carried away with Lego for dd2 but we haven’t got much space so I’m trying not to buy too much this year. Though I feel bad as I have spent a fortune on dd1 as she needed a ipad for a level work.

Mine (7&9) having camping equipment as their main present (it's part of their hobby, not as random as it may sound)

Then they have a mini pioneer kit each (t make different catapults). DD1 has a box of second books, a watch, and a cookbook plus recipe journal. DD2 has some Cubs stuff, a drawing book (and il find a sketch book for her), and a click she can colour in herself. They also have some cake decorating bits to share.

Stockings have stationery, bath stuff, Cub badges, Chopsticks, chocolate/sweets, a door plaque with a HP quote, beanie boo. Hot chocolate melting snowman, Seeds.

I'm stumped this year. DD(8) doesn't know what she wants.

So far I think she's getting a new CD/DAB micro system for her room. The cheapo one she got a few years ago switches off after an hour and she loves listening to my CDs while she plays.

Some extension bits for her Gravitrax . Looking at loop the loops and trampolines for it.

DD(18month).
So far a small football. Really struggling for her.

Can I ask where you got your HP door plaques from please?

Thankyou all for the reply’s, I’ve realised that my girls have enough but I’ve found three more presents for my son that I have just ordered, he has limited interests and his birthday is just before Christmas so it’s always hard trying to think of things that he will be exited about.

@Elphaba17 Amazon (but it appears to be an independent seller through Amazon)
www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B072J43LLV?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title&tag=mumsnetforu03-21
