Hi my lovely nieces twins b/g will be 10 in Nov, struggling for ideas for their b/day and Christmas. Only get to see them once or twice a year so no idea what they are into. Could ask their mum, but I remember everyone keep asking me what to buy my triplets! Thank you.
There's a massive craze for putty at the moment and hobbycraft are selling some great 'make your own putty' kits. A chocolate making kit is a pretty safe present for children if you don't know what they are into. There are a few chocolate lollipop kits about, a make your own chocolate pizza kit, chocolate coin making kit and there's even a 3d London chocolate kit! If I find the link I'll send it. My DS has a 'doodle your own world map pillowcase' which cost about £15. And of course there are some brilliantly imaginative board games and puzzles out there. I'm thinking along the lines of Mouse Trap and Rush Hour.
