Hi all, apologies if this has been covered before but I'm really hoping some of you can help. We have my nephew and his family coming to stay for a holiday and I would like to put a little gift for each of the children on their beds. One is a girl of about six, the other a boy of around three, both quite advanced for their age. I don't want to go overboard and embarrass their parents so just a little something - also I have no idea what they have at home so better to be something you can have more than one of. As my children are now 26 and 27 I have no idea what the latest craze is or even where to go. If any of you can give me a clue I'd be so grateful, I have about a week before they get here. Sorry for long post.

Maybe you could make them a holiday basket with lots of little bits and bobs to do. So my daughter is 4 and things she would enjoy are colouring things, bubbles, buckets and spades, sticker books, puzzles etc. Maybe a disposable camera would be nice?

Something local?
Wherabouts is the 'holiday'? - bucket and spade, crafty bits,

Thank you for the tips, I will have more luck with my great niece as I had daughters - boys are a bit of a mystery. They are coming to us in Cornwall so if the weather holds out hopefully they will able to be on the beach and rock pooling, etc.
