Lip balm. Bath salts. It was your dd who had the pamper bday party, right? Face masks, bath bombs, new scrubby for shower. Favourite Lolly? Glitter Or gel pens

Ds is 9 and he’s getting exploding kittens, cool fact book, toothbrushes, mini cans of lemonade, candy cane and a new ornament. I may have forgotten something.

Along the lines of what 4 Shining Stars said. Target has microwave Nutella cake mugs for $8, which I know due to being in Target Friday evening and hearing "BUT MUM IT'S ONLY EIGHT DOLLARS AND IT'S NUTELLA CAKE AND YOU CAN KEEP THE MUG. BUT MUM IT'S NUTELLA CAKE. BUT MUM IT'S ONLY EIGHT DOLLARS. MUUUUMMMM PLEASE. BUT MUM IT'S ONLY EIGHT DOLLARS THAT'S SO CHEAP. MUUUUUUUMMMM".

Yeah she's into pamper, but I also have a DS 9. Having to get different things for them will really complicate matters as inevitably they (i.e. DS) will think the other one has something he would have liked and then WHY IS THE WORLD SO UNFAIR!

Any reason you can’t get the pamper stuff for your da too? Mine likes all the supposedly “girly” stuff

Yeah good point! I've bought him nail polish in the past but he'd probably do a face mask for the novelty and wouldn't baulk at a lip balm or so.

Toothbrush? Coles had electric battery operated ones at half price recently, so I got one for dd. DS hates them so I got him two nicer toothbrushes.

#17 a letter to Elise.

My da is getting some candy cane Lindt balls, some Bertie bots gummies and jelly beans, funny socks, a rubiks cube and some undies.

im really liking the puffy paint and shirt idea! I feel like he’s getting too old for the smiggle and k mart craft stuff, but I think he’d quite like that.
