No idea. Ds appears to think we are zillionaires at this time of year and I am sick with worry over a tax bill that will be due and impossible to pay and he just does not care. I know he would/does/can't help it but I just cannot face what should be a lovely day battling with his disappointment at not receiving the expensive stuff he wants.
DS1's not asked for anything specific, either. He's getting an expensive magazine subscription for his birthday, next week, so I'm not going OTT. I've got some inexpensive noise cancelling headphones for him. Only problem is, his MP3 player's now bust - and they're now pretty hard to buy as people tend to use their phones, though Currys carry 2 different portable CD players in store . He wants to open his tin of money on his birthday, so we may be able to rectify the situation for him.
DS1's favourite present last year was one of those desk pencil sharpeners.
Have got dh a kit to make a remote control paper plane, it uses a phone/tablet for the remote. Hopefully the actual electronics will withstand a few crashes, even if the paper plane needs remaking.
For the kids stocking there's usually some sort of fidget toy, this years is thinking putty. DS also has some colour changing lights for the den under his bed. Lots of cheep kits on eBay at the moment.
Ouryve, would the sansa clip zip work. The buttons are on the small side but ours have survived a couple of years of the kids. It was me who killed one. Washing machine strikes again!
