7yo DD2 has got loads of things on her list but really struggling to think of things to buy for the 10yo (she really wants a mobile phone but I've told her that she had to wait until she's 11 for that - another 7 months).
So what are your tween Dds getting for Xmas this year...?
Does she have an iPod. Probably to much like a phone with access yo the internet. I also went for the camera, beats, seems to be all small expensive presents at this age. I am also at a loose end for a bit of reasonably priced bulk.
Whilst it's not for me to question or disrespect your choices, OP, can I just revist the phone thing.
Assume you're saying 'not until you're 11' because you're thinking of a mobile once they start secondary?
Can I just flag up that kids are HOPELESS with phones for AGES. They lose them. They don't answer them or respond to your trying desperately not to be frantic messages. Then they ring you to ask you something spurious and ridiculous.
A chance to practice BEFORE they start secondary school is no bad thing. AND you can buy them a rubbish/cheap one and tell them that if they can manage that, then their next phone will be something more decent. Just saying.
Otherwise, something make-up/body care-y would be nice. If she You-Tubes, something rubbish (and overpriced) by one of the YouTubers would probably be appreciated.
The book based on that movie that has just come out, it should link you to one about a boy a similar age who has to live in a bubble as he has no immune system. My DC's found them really inspiring.
Failing that decent felt tips, decent pencil crayons, decent pencil sharpener, pack of pencils, drawing journal, colouring books, Keri Smith does a fab collection of books that give you crazy things to do. Look at Wreck this Journal and those type of books.
I've got most of the Keri Smith stuff for myself, I go to use it and a DC has started it.
Maybe a journal, Wilko's do a sweet one for £2.50 inspired by cats that has hopes, dreams, stuff I did great, it's grey & sparkly. They have love heart post it's. To Do List, stickers for journals so prioritising that kinda thing.
