I have 3 dc, dd5, ds8 and dd11 so far I have got the girls a pair of unicorn slippers each and that is it. I have no idea what to get them and I am running out of time, startinv to panic slightly. We have Amazon Prime so if I get organised can do one big order have it delivered tomorrow before the kids break up. Please inspire me with ideas, budget wise up to £400 each child but don't need to spend all of that, that is just what I have saved for Christmas gifts.

Mine are 3 and 4 and have a lot of toys so I got them trunki suitcases and a scooter and balance bike. Then some paw patrol vehicles and little bits and bobs.

Mine have asked for audiobooks, Sphero robots and an xbox game. They've got stockings with all the usual yoyo's and tat inside but I tend not to go mad because we really do already have a house full of toys and games, plus mad relatives who'll buy huge boxes of lego and playmobil.

Ds is 8 and is mainly getting Lego, Lego and a bit more Lego!

My dd is 6 so thinking of your middle dc here, my dd is massively into Our Generation dolls and Baby Alive, as are most of her friends.
Also, Smiggle stuff, JoJo Siwa doll and merchandise, anything to do with craft, LOL dolls and accessories, Shopkins, Barbie Hello dream house ( it's amazing ) I could go on and on, she did 6 lists throughout the year but I told her she could only have one so did a "final draft"

My other dc is a 14yr old boy and he's getting all technology stuff like a new phone, Xbox S and TV so not much help there.

Good luck smile

Lego
All the Lego

DayDreamer99 Thu 14-Dec-17 14:24:49

Both dd love Lego but we have most of the Lego friends and Disney range, that is normal go to present. Dd1 has a ps4, ds has asked for his own but I am not sure we need two.

LordSugarWillSeeYouNow Thu 14-Dec-17 14:26:31

Sorry that is what she has got plus a very very expensive ( over £215) American Girl Doll that she has wanted since forever, all the way from
the US.

DayDreamer99 Thu 14-Dec-17 14:27:26

LordSugar thank you so much! Your post reminded me dd2 had asked for the Our Generation ice cream van and the ice cream doll to go with it. So much going on at the moment I had totally forgot. What is Smyths click and collect like?

Mine are 5, 3 and 1. We have got them a set of those cool magnetic building tiles and a book each, plus some little bits for their stockings (cool socks, a funky toothbrush, nice hair clips). They're going to be spoiled by the rest of the family so we decided they didn't need much from us.

Wanderlust1984 Thu 14-Dec-17 14:29:52

A Nintendo switch and some games... i was panicking too until my friend mentioned this, I'd not heard of it!

LordSugarWillSeeYouNow Thu 14-Dec-17 14:29:54

Dd has the ice cream van it's amazing!
She's got the camper van for Christmas, Smyths c and c is brilliant, if she likes OG stuff then you can't go wrong, the choice this year is fabulous ( and bloody expensive ) grin

DayDreamer99 Thu 14-Dec-17 14:30:35

Its the Dot... Amazon echo dot...not the big one! £35 for Black Friday.

DayDreamer99 Thu 14-Dec-17 14:42:14

You lot are great. Ordered a Nintendo Switch, case and a few games for ds from Amazon, should be arriving Saturday. And ordered youngest dd the Our Generation ice cream van and matching doll, the camper van, jeep with Bluetooth and surf board and the surfing doll to go with it. I also got her some lol dolls to go in her stocking, the rest of the stocking stuff will be a trip to home bargains tomorrow morning so not to worried about that. Now for dd1 she is 11, already has an iPhone 7, ps4 and iPad and ideas?

DayDreamer99 Thu 14-Dec-17 14:44:35

Ok what is an Amazon dot? Dd has Spotify on her phone and connects it via Bluetooth to her tv sound bar, is it that sort of thing?

DayDreamer99 Thu 14-Dec-17 14:46:11

Reading that back my kids sound so spoilt and they are really not.

CJCreggsGoldfish Thu 14-Dec-17 14:46:24

Too much! I thought I was done and then I got twitchy and bought more 😬.

Hippee Thu 14-Dec-17 14:48:27

A MacBook wink.

No, seriously, I am struggling too - once I have given ideas to my DM, DMIL, DB and DSIL I have no ideas left, and the children have plenty as it is. DM is getting DS1 (11) a popcorn maker, DS2 (9) and DD (7) some canvases and Sharpies, DMIL is getting them all Rubik's Speed Cubes, DSIL is giving them NERF guns and DB is giving them all books (Guinness Book of Records for DS2). I have got DS1 loads of books too, DS2 a small electronic drum kit and DD a Sylvanian Family.

LordSugarWillSeeYouNow Thu 14-Dec-17 14:51:41

Wow you're nearly there op! Good choices, especially for dd, 5. They are all brilliant presents. I'm afraid I don't much advice over eldest dd, what is she into?
My nieces are 12/13 and love River Island stuff, Lush, Boux Avenue pyjamas etc, make up! Perfume, bags ( RI again ) and sparkly stuff i.e. Converse with bling.
Would she use a kindle?
Hair stuff ie GHD's?
Pandora or similar charm bracelet?
Half presents/half vouchers for fave shop?
Something for her bedroom?
Anything "designer" that she's always wanted?

Sorry if some of these suggestions seem
old but from what I've gathered from my two younger nieces, 11yr olds are quite grown up!
