I often see threads on Mumsnet asking for ideas for birthday or Christmas presents, so I thought we could share the best presents our children have received.
Here are our family's top four:
- Compact digital cameras: bought for DS3 and DD for their eighth birthdays, and still used nearly every day, two years on.
2. Minecraft: exceptionally good value for money in terms of hours spent playing it. All three boys play regularly.
3. Onesies: popular with 14 y old, 12 y olds and both nearly 10 y olds. In our family, you can't go wrong with this one.
4. Rainbow loom: only DD makes them, but DS3 is happy to wear the results. She says it was the best Christmas present ever. I think the phase will pass, and the bands get everywhere.
