Please wise ones of Mumsnet help me out.

I have 2 boys and no clue where to start on girls stuff. DS1 is going to birthday party on Sunday for his ex-girlfriend (he advises me that she dumped him yesterday but he is still invited to party, bless ) and I need to get a pressie.

In the region of £5 or less, I'm skint. I know absolutely nothing about the girl or her tastes so I'm hitting my head on a wall over this.

Anything to do with Bratz dolls. Crafty things like making bracelets etc go down well at this age.

Dd just turned seven and was given lots of arts and crafts stuff which went down v well, esp Window Art from Woolworths, her fave present of all time, she says, altho a cuddly toy alsatian has become inseparable from her too.

My girlies love 'pretties' the most as pressies..(ages 6 - 9 - 11). In other words, Clairs accessories for pretty hair clips. They often have a sale rack filled with bits at under £1....I go quite often to stock up ready for party's. Last time I went I got loads of pretty girly handbags at 3 for £5, and some hair clip sets at 3 for £1 ready for pressies. That was less than a month ago too.

Hama Beads.

Craft kits from local toyshop about £3.99 +


Hair accessories.

Arts and crafts, paper, pens, gel pens etc.

All of which have been mentioned I'm sure.

I love Mumsnet

Actually wasted an hour of valuable kid-free time trying to think up pressie ideas before thinking of posting on here. Duh!

Smashing ideas all, thanks. Usually I just have to buy anything with a football on - all this pink girly stuff is alien to me
