My best advice would be to ask them (or their parents) if there is something that they would particularly like, or you're probably going to get it wrong! My nephews/nieces seem to be very fond of cash (as opposed to vouchers) as they can spend it where they like and on things that their parents wouldn't necessarily approve of! (Actually, I have one Nephew who sticks any money straight in the bank & never spends anything! Think he's planning a mass blow out at some point!)
Alternatively (which I do for Birthdays) take them on a day out in the West End, plan somewhere fun for lunch or dinner (depending on age), like the Rock Island Diner, and give them a budget to spend as they wish in the shops. This will make you "the fun, trendy Aunt"!
