i buy for alot of kids at christmas too as we have loads of nieces and nephews and friends' kids from a few months to 12 years old and everyone of them is getting a book this year. Either as their main present (say guinness book of records, which i think is on offer for £10 at smiths at the mo) or added to another present. The book people, amazon and tescos have very good deals on at the moment and for most you can get free delivery or there are codes around to get discounts.
ooh reban, at least 3 of the kids on that lest are real readers, boy T, is a HUGE reader, so either book token or a book (book token is because i never know what hes read!!), the babies will deff get books (i give them books as soon as poss!)
I bought "dr who scene it" last week in boots (reduced to £8!) so will do as a joint presant for T and L
really trying to cut down on what i spen, family wise i have only mum dad and brother and 2 friends to buy for, its all the kids that are stressing me out!
ooh boots could be a good idea, although even with the 3 for 2 their gifts seem rather overpriced!
OOh thank you! we had a VERY long convo about how it would be cool if you could control spider...like a robot....so he could have it chasde after his DSisters! will probably live to regret getting him one!
TY robot spider finiding mumsnetters!!
aaah, thought it was nincky knonck or something!...it has caused some distress i tell you!
ooh why did i think it was you comewhine? LOVE the name btw! and the show come to think of it! although come whine with me is often m,ore appropriate!
Zavvi still exists? i thought it had joined woolies in the great bankrupt ships in the sky!?
