dp's family are coming to us for xmas from australia, its his dad, stepmum and half? brother(17) and sister(13) dp didn't grow up with them and hasn't seen them for 7 years, i have never met them. i want to get them nice xmas presents but have no idea what 17 and 13 year old like. i know the boy likes football - help me!
Hmmm very tricky. I know they're not as nice to open, but what about music/dvd vouchers. It's so hard for both of those ages - something signed from a team he likes? 13 yr old girl - a gift voucher for a nail bar?
about £30 each. i would really like to buy them a gift rather than vouchers, they are going to be here on xmas day and probably wont have much to open as they wont have brought all the gifts with them from australia.
Football shirt for the boy? Even if he's not the type to wear it as everyday wear, he could wear it when doing sports.
Maybe jewellery for the girl. Do you know if she has pierced ears? I probably wouldn't buy the bubble bath type stuff mainly because it could be an issue for packing to go home - unless they are here for a while anyway.
To be honest I'd find this an almost impossible task without knowing them. I have two teen girls and they are both very different. The younger one likes make up - older one hates it...
Do they have face book you could check their interests on there or maybe get some ideas talking to their Dad/Stepmum...
other than that something typically english that they will keep like you might buy a boomerang from australia, london bus, or a nice book about london and maybe some tickets to an attraction for while they are here.
