So basically SIL seems to be popping out kids every year, each Christmas is getting ridiculously expensive (and more so we only get a card - seems strange!) but they're kids and we want to get them gifts. After number 5 arrived I'm desperate to think of one gift that covers them all! Any ideas? Racking my brains! They already have a family subscription to the local sea life park or that's the exact kind of thing I'd like to get!
Any ideas? £20 per child is nearly 80% of my whole Christmas budget and it's madness!
Any ideas or help would be appreciated. Thanks for any help.

I should say the baby is so new we are getting him newborn gifts etc. We're not that cruel ;)
#2
Jenga?!
#3
Family photo shoot voucher perhaps?
#4
trampolines can be picked up quite cheap its great for all ages and if u build it and throw some wrapping paper over it they can all rip it off
#5
A family board game, with a chocolate stocking filler for each.

Or you could do what my relatives used to do - give age inappropriate aftershave to a 7 y/o oO
#6
A movie gift set. You could get a variety of DVDs, popcorn, chocolates, sweets and glass mason jars each
#7
you could get them a dvd or game with popcorn and chocolate for a family movie night.

What about a 'treats' hamper? For about £5 per person you could easily make a really great looking hamper packed full of treats e.g a photo calendar, hot chocolate, candy canes, Christmas DVD, colouring books, coloured pencils, baby bib, personalised baubles, chocolate biscuits, bubble bath, etc. Most of this stuff can be found in Poundland, B and M or Home Bargains. All put together in a big box covered with film would look fab. If you wanted to spend a little bit more you could also include matching pjs and turn it more into a Christmas Eve box.

Any of the above would be better than the kind, but diabetes inducing 12 tubs of celebrations we received when we had five kids resident under one roof.

Check out the works for 2 for £10 gifts, they can make their own zombie, create light up jewellery etc http://www.theworks.co.uk/c/multibuys/2-for-10/christmas-gifts

Or a gingerbread house kit, they can all try making their own gingerbread house

I second a gingerbread house. I had fun putting one together last christmas (and I'm 23), though i did receive alcohol as another present and opened that first so that could have something to do with the awful decorations and enjoyment.

Oh wow! Just logged back on, some amazing ideas! Thank you guys! :D definitely think I'll be able to keep it somewhat cheap now!

In all seriousness it's probably tricky getting something that covers them all but things like board games can be good.

Maybe get them one "big present" between them like board games or some kind of craft thing like making a gingerbread house or christmas tree decorations and a small thing or small things each. That way they all have an individual thing to open for themselves which seems to be half of the fun of christmas presents for kids.

The average young child isn't fussed with price of a thing so simple poundland toys and things like that (though not anything with small parts as these will break in four seconds flat) are great.

If you're anywhere near an Ikea then their gingerbread houses are pretty good and also well under £5 as well

Yes I completely agree. Gingerbread house was suggested a few times so we may got for that (from IKEA as one user suggested) possibly buying them a space hopper each.. cheap but fun! And add in some suggestions from here. OH reckons he needs to "knock me up" asap so he can recoup these costs haha! Thanks for everyone's help :)

Hobby craft have got some lovely little kits in. Paint your own moneybox; theres owls, cows, santa etc. £3 each but on 3 for 2. I got my daughters friends presents yesterday and they worked out at £2 each. Argos have annuals for £1 at the moment, Thomas, Frozen etc. A selection box from a pound shop or some of the big shops might have the small ones for £1 too. Joint gingerbread house too as I love that idea.
