Gifts for children

Help! I need to get some gift ideas for two distant relatives I don't see a lot of (but I am fond of their parents). One, a ten year old girl (her mum has no idea), the other, a 14 year old boy who is quite arty. But is a boy.

Any ideas? What sorts of things do children want this year?

She used to like unicorns. Do they grow out of unicorns?

For various reasons, I can't do that (I do do that with closer family).

If the 14-year-old boy is arty, how about some art material? Ask the mother what he's already got in the way of paints/brushes sketch books, drawing paper, pens/inks, etc etc etc. and what he's into. You can buy him something he hasn't already got, like a set of watercolour paints, or fancy pastels, etc.

My 8-year-old grandsons are both nuts about Lego, especially Star War things, Minecraft and Pokemon on their kids' tablets.

I can't believe these kids haven't got Wish Lists on Amazon???

What's your budget?

How about some pajamas, beano hats, or bedclothes with their fav cartoon characters?

D'oh! That's blindingly obvious and I had missed it. I thank you. He also loves computer games and all the normal paraphernalia of a 14 year old boy who is trying not to be bullied ... but I reckon art supplies will be just the ticket. Thank you!

You are more than welcome.
