More often than not I struggle to buy gifts for children who are not my own and not family members either. So thought I would put together a few ideas for gifts with an RRP of £10 and under. These suitable ages vary on each gift but this guide is mainly for the older ones (Think school age children).
Gifts for children under £10

In Native American tradition, dreamcatchers filter out the bad dreams, therefore giving the person asleep good dreams only. Such a great idea, the kit contains everything the child needs to make their own.
