Now what on earth can you get by way of birthday gifts for a 12 year old grand daughter – the problem is looming in this household. There are currently six grand children to cater for and the present buying gets more difficult every time. I have christmas more or less nailed. They all get new night wear, be they jazzy pjs or seriously sensible jersey nighties, there is always a theme to the group purchase. Presents and gifts for young adults has always presented a nightmare for relatives. The fear of any gift being rejected out of hand for being unwanted / old fashioned / uncool / etc. is dreadful. Three of the six are active and take part in all kinds of sports – this is not too bad, there’s always a jokey sport based item to be found. But the kiddies who don’t have hobbies of any kind leave me with nothing to aim for!
