    I never have any ideas what kind of prezzies to buy friends kiddies when you don't really know what they are in to ....

    What can you never go wrong with other than selection boxes? zzzzzz

    What do you kids get that you get loads of from various people?

    I know its the thought but its always the ages of toddlers+ that I'm stuck on :shrug:

    I use to like games when I was little - operation connect 4 ludo etc do kids still like these?

    Bless ya! :lol:

    You know what I look forward to this with my babies - family night games on the table not console or PC. We can't really hide that lifestyle from our kids with our jobs but its not all I want them to be interested in.

    what about tubes of sweets?? i was in morrisons earlier and they've got the big tubes of smarties and jelly tots and stuff. i'm eatin jelly tots now!! i think games are a good idea, if the parents arent that into games then they might not think of it themselves, but really like the idea

    Toddlers are hard. I have 5 new siblings (foster kids and adopted) living at my moms house, so any ideas would be helpful. Not just with Christmas coming up but also for birthdays.

    One year my mum had lots of her friends visiting with their kids (my mum was a single parent with 4 kids at that time so money was tight) but kids dont understand that so my mum had a big box the hamper came in.....got all of us to decorate it so it was christmassy....filled it up with the ripped up wrapping paper and bought selection boxes, books, felt tips, toys etc stuff for boys and girls of all ages and wrapped them all....(labelling them "boy" or "girl" or "boy and "girl" etc) and threw on some cheap crackers and called it her christmas present box.....!! The kids loved it and even though they were only cheap books and stuff they were happy with the whole choosing their present and my mum got so much stuff (thank goodness for the pound shop etc) some of them had 2 or three presents from the box....

    As a mum of ickle ones I'd say Games yes good idea.But my 2 like craft things.Sticking,colouring that sort of thing.I tend to buy theses things for friends kids or some books or even a token for woolworths so they can go and be grown up and choose their own.If i do this I buy them some sweets as a little something for under the tree.
