10 - bubble bath/shower set - I used to hope and pray I would get stuff like that at christmas when I was 10.

14 - does she have an I-Pod? - I-Tunes voucher, or even a Top Shop voucher, she is bound to be able to put it towards something.

10 - Guinness Book of Records (DS12) loves getting this every year.

15 & 8 months - noooooo idea, sorry, tis a long time since I had to buy for babies.

asda have some of their nice toiletry gift sets on 3 for £10 here click on gifts on the line at the top, nivea lip gloss one went down well with my nieces last year, as do things like impulse spray or shower sets. Ds2 (9) also starting to get into using body sprays, shower gels etc. Vouchers good idea for older girl, way too easy to make the "wrong" choice if buying clothes grin For the younger ones I'd be tempted to for board books (the Works is usually pretty good for cheap ones) or push/pull along toys.
