I'm trying to get it all online this year. Any ideas of what I can get cousin's children?

I would think books DVDs etc is good - or if they have an IPod an I Tunes voucher - or simply cash !

Can't afford boys. Was hoping they were still yuk.

Will do New Look vouchers - or maybe Topshop? I suppose they'd get more for the New Look pound wouldn't they?

Games consoles? Like a DS?

Vouchers - New Look, iTunes, HMV, Waterstones

agree with vouchers - perhaps love2shop which can be used in New Look (safe bet for that age group) plus lots of other places? Depends what you want to spend but a voucher and token gift (small selection box/lip gloss/socks/book/stationery item) so they have something to open too? But a voucher on its own would be absolutely fine and very welcome in our pre-teen DD household!

just remembered a really cool website called Heidi Seeker (google?) for something a bit different?

My 14 year old would hate New Look vouchers but love Topshop ones. the 12 year old would hate both. They would both be v happy with HMV vouchers or book tokens.

Accessorise do lots of lovely quirky necklaces and earrings, which are v popular with both dds and all of their friends: little bird cages, unicorns, teacups, rocking chairs etc.

Their lists are very similar to Perdu's list:
- fluffy socks or slippers
- notebooks or journals
- gloves or scarves from somewhere like Accessorise or Topshop - although dd1 also likes the bright leather ones in M&S
- for dd1 (dd2 not allowed it yet) - makeup - but better than her usual Number 7 etc - so I may get her some decent mascara or an eyeliner from somewhere like Urban Decay or Benefit
