Bs Christmas Journal


I thought this would be as good a place as any to keep all my ideas seeing as us creeps like to have something to read when we get five mins

I have my Three boys to buy for who are 9, 6 and 4 I'm struggling with the older two the most. They already all have decent bikes, stunt scooters, 9 yr old just got a £160 skateboard for his birthday they have a tablet each. Two Xbox ones. A Nintendo switch. Hundreds of pounds worth of Lego, everything you can imagine obviously for boys between them over the years so I'm lost! Ideas welcome

And my Mini me will be 1 at the end of November and then Christmas three weeks later so I'll be splitting her stuff between the two, I'm so excited to buy girlie toys though after so many years of boys stuff

Plus various family and my OH

Following, I have 4 children, 11 year old and 8 year old boys and boy/girl twins who will turn 3 in November, so far I have found my daughter the easiest to buy for (like you it's nice being able to buy girlie toys!) I'm finding the older boys, particularly my 8 year old difficult to buy for. So far I have bought them a Nintendo Switch with 2 games and Slush Puppy Machine and syrup flavours to share along with a load of Jurassic World figures (they still love dinosaurs). For my eldest I have bought a XL Drone, Littlebits RD D2 Droid and huge Link figure plus annual some funko Pop Vinyls etc, for my 8 year old I have bought a Roblox annual, I think most of his gifts will be around Roblox!

I have two girls and wouldn't have a clue what to buy boys ha ha.
It's all unicorns and mermaids here.

Thinking of your older boys how about one of the 8 in 1 games tables. I remember DH saying he got one to share with his brother when they were kids (takes up space though)

All they keep asking me for is to keep their little sister when they're at their dads house and then discussing how I should make them another sister to have at their dads house think he can sort that one out lol

They have two switches and two Xbox ones (one each at my and ex hubbies house) so I think I will get a couple of games. The slush is machine is a good idea especially since my four year old is allergic to dairy so that would be something that they can all have the same thanks funko pop vinyls are on the list too they (we) already collect those and such a good stocking filler

I'm seriously loving all these unicorns and mermaids believe me I want to get DD a wooden pram and a doll I think for her main Christmas present. I'm going to try not get into the rut I did with the boys buying them masses of everything and then it never being played with. I want her to have things she actually loves and uses especially as we live in a one bedroom flat at the moment (desperately hoping to move before Christmas) so space is an issue but They love table hockey so that's actually a good idea maybe they could have that at their dads x
