My 2 goddaughters. Had no clue what to buy them, asked a random lady on the escalator (who had 5 daughters with her) what to buy and they told me to go nuts at Smiggle.
I have no comprehension on why they love it so much, but they were so excited when they opened their gifts.
Also the Thomas table that Santa got for our kids, the play steering wheel and a play cash register. They're very happy little vegemites.

Dd loved her kitchen we made out of an old tv unit and her giant Mickey Mouse. Needn't have bothered with anything else.

I nailed it with all of DS's things this year but the one labeled from us getting the most use is the scooter and helmet. Even the books were excitement worthy. It just so happens that the gifts labeled from his grandpa (the new zelda ds game) and aunt (a portal gun replica) were the most popular so we sorta made a point of the fact that they sent the money and we chose what to get him. Sounds petty but they make no effort to know what he likes enough to actually buy him something themselves. My mum sends money but she decides what to get with it which was a crayola digital light thing and another diary of a wimpy kid book.
Sent from my pho....oh who am I kidding. It's rarely used as a phone

Nailed it with the husband big time when I bought him Mark Donaldson's autobiography, The Crossroad.
He's been immersed in it ever since.

Oh and nailed it with the kids by purchasing a swing set...which they promptly ditched for the box it came in.
They've been using it as a cubby house ever since. Bliss!
