They’re all fairly young and was just wondering what are some great present ideas for my nieces and nephews?

  • books and maybe lego would be loved by the kids.

  • Last year I gave my nephew a spiderman Backpack with a spideman T-shirt, Spiderman cup pencil case colouring book and he absolutely loved it

  • Mine love books so I stock up during sales

  • A towel with their name… all of our nephew and nieces are getting one this year

  • I sometimes make stuff. I made some streamers out of ribbon once. I stitched together some felt planets another time. Otherwise I love all the wooden Montessori style toys out lately from all the local handmade shops.althoigh they can be pricey.
    Lego is a good one

  • Slime. It works for both boys and girls and any age loves it. Boys especially love the farting ones and girls love glitter glitter and glitter. The other thing kids of most ages and bouncing balls. Whether they are glitter, or light up or both, kids can never have enough balls

  • I get my niece something educational (book, puzzle ect) something to wear (clothing) and something fun (try and go for something physical like a ball, sport set, or an age appropriate toy) I usually head to Kmart or big w to get it so that it works out cheaper.

  • always depends on age and interest. my older nephews love vouchers to their favourite shop or app so they can buy something themselves. the younger ones I get toys based on their current interests.

  • It depends on the age of the children. Maybe ask the Mum and Dad for suggestions. One year when I asked a single Mum she desperately needed some clothes for her baby son who had just had a growth spurt. I also gave him some books that his Mum could read to him. I remember one year my brother and I were given a fairly large set of wooden building blocks. I still have them. One year I was given a rubber stamp set in trays in a b ox. My brother and I spent hours stamping them on paper and colouring them in. The days of the old stamp pad that you inked.

  • I have 11 nieces and nephews so Christmas is not a fun time for me :/ When they were younger I would print of a heap of coloring in pages free of the internet, make 11 books and gift them with 5 pencils, stickers, a lolly, a small packet of twisties, pop top juice, yo-yo and $2 plus a cheap board game for the whole family. They were a huge hit and less the $70!

  • Sometimes a joint present in a family can work too. Something everyone can play, like games or create, like construction projects.

  • Maybe books like picture books or puzzles dependant on their age Lego or a toy or arts and craft.

  • If you have photos of the kids with your and their families, you can make a Photo book which they can treasure and relive the memories of the happy times you have had together.

  • Depends on the age and their interest for me. My nieces and nephews all live oversees so I can’t give them the gift of experiences. I often order something online, things like a photo puzzle of a lovely memory we shared together or a personalized pillow with a photo, I also have given lego, crafts like window paint, a cook or baking book with cookie cutters, garden tools with a plant, a bracelet and for the younger ones toys or books.

  • I like to buy ‘doing’ things. Paints, pencils, games, build your own models, board games, outdoor activities. Things to keep them busy and maybe enjoy with others
