what should i buy an 10 year old boy and 7 year old girl???

    Looking for something relatively cheap (under£10) for my neice and nephew not that close to them so im really not sure what there into. Any moms n dads out there with any ideas? cheers x


    Rather than run the risk of getting the wrong thing.......what about a £10 Toys 'r' Us or Woolies voucher?

    Transformers for the boy - my boys are 12 and 9 and they both love them. Can't help you with the girl though - have no experience.

    gift voucher

    what about something high school musical for the girl and something to do with cars for the boy.

    i presume you cant just call the parents and ask what they like? if not then just use your own judgement but make sure you put the receipt in the parents card so they can exchange? the amount of times i have had items too small/large or just unsuitable and they are reduced after xmas when you exchange with no receipt so you get £3 to spend when the buyer paid £10...
    Have you got a local B&M as there was a lot of stuff there today..Hannah Montana and High school musical suit a girl..

    I would buy books. Great sets for under £10 from The Book People or Red House. This gives you age guides too so you know you're buying something suitable. Score points with the parents too for getting something educational.

    I reckon a book token each, there will be something out there they will each want to read

    wow cheers guys :santa:theres some really awesome ideas on here I never would have even thought of some of these! much appreciated :thumbsup:

    Apart from the usual computer games etc.. My 11 year old asked for the Beano annual. (I cant wait to read it myself ). He also loves the Simpsons.
    But after years of trial and error of getting unsuitable gifts from relatives, they now send him the money, in the form of a cheque.
