Hi, have quite a few presents to buy this year and I am doing ok just stuck on a few. Need present ideas for 14 yr old girl and 10 yr old boy at this stage, all suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Also if you by presents for twins do you buy the same toy each, similar, or completely different, the presents would be for 2year old twin girls. If you are the parents of twins what do you prefer?

I am a parent of newborn twins and every twin forum/parent I've spoken to have said to treat them as individuals so a gift each. If they are the same sex you could get them the same gift in different colours/formats, etc.

What about a village cinemas gift card for the 14 y old?

14 year old girl - make up, hand bag/wallet, jewelry, clothes, movie tickets, voucher - itunes, smiggle, supre, equip etc.
10 year old boy - Monsters or Star Wars Lego, Nerf water gun, movie tickets, science kit, box set of books
2 year old Twins - I would buy 2 gifts similar but not exactly the same. 2 Cabbage Patch Dolls or 2 Fisher Price toys, bathers and beach towel and beach toys, 2 party dresses and complimentary hair accessories (Target has some gorgeous ones), 2 nice books like complete tales of Beatrix Potter for one and Complete Tales of Winnie the Pooh for the other.

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
