My daughter is only 14 months old but she gets a new gift every other week - when we go shopping. Now, it's nothing major but something she enjoys & can keep, it also helps her with her development :) She gets a new board book every time we go shopping, if i cant get a book she doesn't already have, then i find her something like a new teddy, doll or something like that. I never spend heaps coz it's just a gift to make her happy but if you see something, just grab it :) 8 year olds would probably enjoy a new top, maybe a sticker book, costume jewellery or a jewellery box maybe - anything like that would make her happy, as for the 2 year old, something like a giggling doll, musical book or even just a normal book or something like that would make her happy. If you know what they like then you're the best one to pick out the gift! Oh & if you have trouble picking, just go with a DVD, my daughter LOVES the Barbie ones & they're not exactly expensive :)

I would give them each a mommy/daughter day. With your 8 yr old you could go and get manicures, go to the movies, out for lunch, puttputt and fun things like that. With your 2 yr old you could go to the park, McDonalds, shopping ect. I use to do this with my 3 boys. They would have their own day and got to choose what they wanted to do. I'll never forget my middle child wanted to go to the movies. We ended up going to a dollar movie theater. We watched 3 movies that day and ate a whole lot of popcorn.

While both of my children love getting gifts - especially if it is "just because" - they love it when I spend time with them doing something special. So I would say, give them the gift of time. Doing something that you all love. Take a camera along and make some memories!

i have 4 kids and 3 of them are girls. when they are still toodlers they are very fond of barbie dolls... when they reached 8 they are very much into fixing and putting a lot of clips on theri hair so i bought them a girlie box... where a lot of clips, ribbons, combs etc are inside. now theyare teens already and they like shoes and blouses and skirt.

Both of my girls liked dolls. But you didn't tell us what you want to spend. They also liked coloring books and blocks. Your 8 year old might like play makeup or dress up stuff. Your 2 year old might want a ball.

Well I'm not used of giving presents to my kids except for christmas...but everyday I would give them words of encouragement so they would study hard...my little boy used to ask me to bring something everytime I went home...like candy, a toy or anything and he'll call it a "SURPRISE".

as a mother you should know what is the utmost demand by your daughters. I mean at her age and your capability. Especially for their level of growth development and to make them happy as well. For education purpose should take first.
