    Default Christmas Gift Ideas

    Wanting to start my Christmas shopping and have no idea what to get the kiddies for Christmas this year. I have a 6 year old girl and a 2 year old boy. They have so much stuff already but don't play with half of it so I'm really stumped for ideas. So far I've got a trampoline on layby for the two of them to share but need smaller gifts and Santa presents. Any suggestions?

    This year the kids are getting a boxed set of books, board games, kiddie kutters from us and craft sets and a few bits and pieces in their stockings from Santa. Nice and simple one this year!

    I've got a DS 7 years and DS 4 years... I'm planning on buying roller shoes (you know with the wheel in the heel), kinetic sand, plasma ball, family feud board game and where's wally books. I'm also going to get each of them a torch cos they were obsessed with mine when we went camping.

    My 3yr old is getting a dr, set he has been obsessed with playing Dr after his recent hospital visit. I got some scrubs from km art yesterday (they say nurse but I will repackage) I plan to get a white shirt for a older boy and repurpose it to a Dr's white coat and get him a Dr bag set if I can find one. Other sie I will buy a set and make the bag.

    My 7yr old is getting a paw patrol poster and some logo

    My 12 year old will get some sort of sports stuff. She also has a birthday before than.

    My 14 year old wants gift vouchers and art supplies.

    My 16 year old who also has birthday in a few days wants visa cards to pay for computer parts. He is building a computer for his school next year.

    My 21 yr old will get her mummy when she needs her. Than we work out the rest when I am there.

    We got a balance bike & helmet for DS, plus a Hairy McLairy box set of books and a Paw Patrol christmas tshirt. Then just some pens, chalk and little bubble set from Santa. We are trying to keep presents to a minimum as like your kids OP he has a lot and doesn't play with it all. We have a large family who all buy him gifts so he ends up with too much! I've come to realise that he really just doesn't need that much. He's an outdoors kinda kid who's happy to play with sticks and mud
