DD’s Christmas is a bit dull so far, help!!
34

Loveatthe5anddime · 04/12/2021 12:42

Not only am I so disorganised this year I don’t seems to have lost my usual excitement and or any inspiration for my DC’s Christmas particularly my youngest DD10.

It’s such a funny age and while there are things she has asked for and is getting (mostly for pony) they are all very practical and dare I say it a bit dull.

At 10 I’d still like her to have a bit of sparkle, fun, surprises so I’m looking for some more ideas.

We don’t need any tech/snuggly blankets/bed room lights etc, she likes a bath bomb and will have one in her stocking but other than that not into smellies.

To give you an idea of the kind of things I’m look at I’d seen a wicker basket which has Midnight feast printed on the front and was going to fill it with some of her favourite things but unfortunately it’s out of stock!! Another thing was an old fashioned sweet shop set with glass jars etc I have also looked at a few of the bigger Maileg sets as she still collects them but then realised I’d need to sell a liver to fund it

So basically it’s magical part that Santa would bring that I’m trying to fill.

Does anyone have any ideas? I’d love to hear what everyone else’s 10 year old DD’s are getting!

Isn't having a pony the pinnacle? Not sure much would be exciting compared to receiving that!

Agree with the candy floss machine, my dd loved hers at that age!
Make your own midnight fest basket - printout the words 'midnight feast ' - you could cut out the individual letters on dark blue card and add glitter if you wanted. Just use any hamper basket from B&M etc. Then fill with the treats.
At that age she might be interested in treat things like pot noodles etc or pancake/waffle mix and maple syrup!

What about one of those cuddle cushions so it's comfy to sit up in bed reading/using tech? Attached.
Zebra highlighters from Amazon
Silly things like bouncing putty, Christmas scratch art etc, £1 shop for Christmas rubber ducks. Have a look at pound toy for stocking fillers

Milk frother for making hot chocolate.

Fun game like throw throw burrito or exploding kittens

Body/hair glitter

Those fidget popper things

My DDs are 8 and 10 and are getting iPads as their main presents. Other stuff will be books, diamond painting sets, a Kawaii surprise box for the 10 year old (Etsy) art pens (they want Posca but ££££) make up (for the 8 year old - she is obsessed!) and Kraci Poppin sets.

depends how 'sophisticated' she is. Cos she could track Santa's progress around the world on Christmas eve on the NORAD website. Depends on what she is into.

I’m stuck too. Such a tricky age. Last year she lived led lights for her room. This year, not a lot.
