It depends on what she is into. My eldest daughter loves drawing and art. She’s getting her own set of pencils and water paints this year as well as some new earrings. But if your partner’s daughter is into something like sport you could get her a jersey of her favourite team with her name on it. Or if she’s into hair a good set of brushes and ties/accessories. Or if she is into cars some models she can build and paint. There’s so many different interests they can have at that age that it’s hard to figure out something but if you get really stuck jewellery is sometimes a good winner or a nice journal that she can write down things but has a lock that it can remain private (you can get cheap luggage locks with a number combination that are much better than the crappy ones they put on journals and that her brothers won’t be able to break into).

As for the boys again, depends on their interests but I find for younger children lego, games, laser tag, or just a toy or whatever they’re interested in is always a winner.

Maybe ask them to write a wishlist? That way they’ll get things that they love?

Fair enough. How about something Lego for the boys? I've got 2 boys (2.5 & 5) and Lego is definitely a favourite. Even better if you can get one that matches their likes, e.g. my eldest loves the Lego Batman movie, so was very excited to get a Lego Batman set for his birthday.
