Want to get them both something but don't know what. Last time I got her a gift it was ages ago and she still remembers me from that gift, whenever she see's me which is not often, she gets them out and goes "look this is what you bought me remember" ;D

They have enough clothes, their mum went crazy on boxing day sales.

I just give people money and let them buy whatever they want. Makes my life so much easier. I hate shopping.

Yes, Tragic. She's going to give her 2-year-old cousin some money along with a bus pass so he can buy whatever he wants. :exhausted ^o)

Well, you know those sketchadoodle type things? Here's an example. You can get a small one for the little one a bigger one for the older child:

Well it depends on the age. I give the money to the parents if the child is very young. They will buy toys/clothes for the kids. It works all the time for me.

I have a 9 year old nephew and gave him £300. He decided to buy an Xbox 360.

I have noticed people tend to be more happy if you give them money LOL.

It is not conventional but very effective.

AsSalaamu 3alaykum,

Oh the boxing day sales :wub:

You can get her some islamic toy/book or on the girly side of things, buy her little accessories for her hair or jewellery, or buy her a barbie doll..(not). Or like someone suggested, give her money..alternatively you can take her to Toys 'R Us and let her choose something.

What a coincidence! Two days ago I bought my 2 yo nephew Thomas the Tank Engine toys, also operable with batteries.

He loves it!

few days back i visited a book fair and there was some Islamic stuff for children at one stall.. they had such a brilliant education stuff for kidz; personality building folders, manner folders, wall charts (of hadiths quotes) quizes and puzzles books on different Islamic topics, stickers with Islamic expressions and more and all were so beautifully designed. Much stuff was for those children who just started their education. i wanted to buy that all but what was i going to do with it. i dont have any one of that age in my family:hmm:. i wished i had little cozns whom i can gift all that :heated:

I'll be honest, Dont give them something 'big' because as they grow up they would expect you to give them something even more bigger... So stick to something there age..

You get these small cute laptops which say arabic letters etc.. Could be usefull.

Just get something similar like you have before. Its the thought that counts. She still remembers and likes what you gave before, so whatever you get will be good =).

Puzzles are good. Or even a plushy pillow or something. Balls?
