What 5 year old boy on the planet doesn't have a Chrismas list as long as his arm? I even sat him with the argos book but he cirled loads of stuff his siblings might like but next to nothing for him! I really need some suggestions on a good gift please help!!

my 7 yr old could only think of one thing.

Get him some books. You can never have too many books.

It might be too much money, but the DSIs are really good - my dcs have had one for ages and they love them.

Mine never ask for much which makes buying hard!

My ds, 3, has asked for some plastic joke dog poo.

We went to a Santa grotto today and he asked him what he wanted for Christmas, I was a bit nervous what he would say but luckily he was struck dumb by the whole thing!

My 5 year old only wants 5 things -
ipod touch
gaming chair
xbox 360
mobile phone

I've had to get him to think of something affordable that can be special.

An orange t-shirt.


I'll watch this thread for inspiration.

J D Bug scooter?

My DS (also 5) wants or loved receiving for his birthday recently: globe, a cushion of his own (his younger brother was given one), a tea set, books on space and the underwater world, binoculars, morphibiams alligator (remote control amphibious vehicle from ELC), as much Lego as anyone can have, Shaun the Sheep DVDs, duvet covers in Toy Story and dinosaur designs.

Does that help at all?

simpson Sat 04-Dec-10 22:29:38

Oh quality street you are in trouble!

Ds is 4 so I dont know if I am much use but he loves imaginext toys, he is getting the space shuttle and other space things for Xmas and birthday. Would highly reccommend them, he plays with the stuff he has already loads and they are pretty hardy and alot of them dont make noise dont need batteries.

I know - unfortunately that is what happens when you are the baby in a very techie household, you grow up too quick.

What happened to cars?

When did boys stop just asking for cars?

My 7 year old DS wants a joint present with his 19 month old sister.

A big pink play house.

It could always be worse wink

My 3 year old DS2 wants:

Thomas Thingies
Drum Kit
Drum Helmet
A new golden teddy who will be friends with his old (not golden)teddy cos his old teddy doesn't get on with any of the other(squillion)teddies in the house.

I'm struggling with the drum helmet.

DS1 who is 7 at least has sensible, if expensive requests(and he's not getting them all)

Ben Ten Alien creation chamber
Lego Harry Potter game for the DSi
Mr Gum books

Just a tip Junkcollector that Ben ten Alien thing is a major pain in the arse. DS got one last year and bits were everywhere by lunchtime. Good luck (or maybe you've good children unlike mine who don't create masses of mess!)

junkcollector Sat 04-Dec-10 23:07:29

Oh yeah I'm sure it would be. That's the thing he's not getting. I've got enough plastic crap lego under my feet already without adding to it.

InkyStamp Sat 04-Dec-10 23:11:41

I feel your pain. My five year old has given us NO ideas this christmas. And he really isnt 'into' anyhting either!! Painful! I am stuck!

DrSeuss Sat 04-Dec-10 23:13:39

You should be really proud, though,that you brought up a child who thought so much about what his siblings would like rather than just going me, me, me. What a little sweatheart!
Anything Toy Story is well received by my son and the rest of the reception class. Joseph (nearly 5) is getting a Buzz and a woody.

My 6 year old DD wrote a Christmas list that was 3 pages of A4, it took her all evening. I was impressed as the writing was lovely. Then I told her that she won't get EVERYTHING on her list, it's just to give Father Christmas some ideas, and her little face fell, bless her.

Thanks guys, some good ideas, forgot to add his birthday is beginning of January, double woe! DrSuess I am very proud of him he is very considerate, gets it from his mammmy!(smug emoticon)
