    i suck at gift ideas! especially children, i just dont kno what kids are interested in at different ages. can anyone help me with ideas these are the childrens presents i need to get.

    my three nieces, aged 6, 5, and 18 months

    my boyfs twin nieces, aged 6 months

    my girl friends daughter aged 21 months

    and of course my own daughter aged 6 months

    is that bad that i cant even think of anything for my own?! i could get clothes but thats a bit boring for a gift coz theyre a necessity and xmas gifts should be a treat but she loves simple things like magazine pages and sweet wrappers! my mums already gone mad buying her building blocks, big books that squeak, rattley things, teddies etc so i cant think of anything original!
    and what sort of things would my older nieces like?
    HELP

    for the older ones crafty things, even if you go to a craft shop and make up your own box with feathers, sequins, bits of fabric, diferant coloured card, childsafe glue etc etc.

    the 21 month old a sing along DVD like 'fun song factory'

    For Matilda I am buying her one of the walker things like manda224 suggested, also want to get her something to 'bang' have seen a great fisher price one with a little hammer and bang on the 'eggs' and it plays tunes or says letters/numbers. my bruv has bought her a baby walker which she's already using and I have also asked for a singing nursery rhyme book, a sit and stand giraffe, a crawl and roll mirror etc. things to stimulate her and encourage her to crawl/walk etc.

    TBH we're not going mad as she's too young to understand yet and things here are soooooo expensive

    Books or craft things. I was talking about this the other day with Jed and we were saying how when we were little our aunts always used to buy us them big packs of felt tip pens and big scrap books and big drawing pads. They obvioulsy didnt know what to get us but what they got us were our favourite presents!!! All kids love pens and paper :wink:

    Oh and books, you can't go wrong with a book. Isaac has loads, I tell people to buy them so we don't end up over run with lots of plastic, noisy, big, irritating toys that he hardly ever plays with lol

    This year I went through the smyths, argos and early learning catalogues and made a list of presents for people to get him and everyone has shared them out between them. I wasn't being cheeky, everyone asked me to do it! That way theres also no doubling up of presents which happened last year :roll:

    oh this post is well long. Sorry :oops:
