    Default What are your 11 yr old and 7 yr old DCs getting for the holidays?

    What are your 11 yr old and 7 yr old DCs getting for the holidays? My 11 yr old has said he might like a sports watch. He likes reading, sports and music. He's into Lego robotics. I'm thinking may be arduino?

    I need ideas especially for my 7 yr old. He said surprise me He likes sports, arts and reading.

    Thanks!

    I need ideas, too! Both my kids (DS 11 and DD 7) want watches. Theyre getting footie pjs and slippers. DD is getting a new skate bag and skates unless she outgrows her current skates before the holidays, in which case shell get them regardless. DD also wants some new jigsaw puzzles, and shes wanted a robot animal for a while. Im kind of iffy about it. Im at a bit of a loss for fun presents, especially for DS. We dont have a gaming system, and Im not getting one, and that and a cat (which Im also not getting) are all hes been asking for. Im hoping you all will have some ideas.

    I'm at a loss for my boys. My 8 yr old is into beyblades and there was a set/stadium at target he wanted, so I picked that up with a 25% off coupon. There is one video game my 10 yr old wants, so I'm getting that for him. But I still need a few more things from us, and then my parents will want a list. I've said absolutely no lego sets this year, since they still have several from their birthdays that they have not assembled. Worst case my parents are good with sending gift cards or cash, so the boys can get what they want. I wrap those in boxes, so it still looks like a lot under the tree.

    My 10 year old DS wants some sort of fancy camera (DSLR that his grandpa has), interesting Rubiks cubes (hes obsessed), and a professional Rubiks cube timer.

    DS2 (6) pretty much wants every toy out there. Hes always been very easy to please when it comes to toys and games. He especially loves rocks and gems, board/card games, puzzles, and books.

    Thanks for the ideas.

    DS1 asked for Lego architecture/ Ideas. I saw a great deal on Shanghai set ($36 on walmart) but I waited and it's now $47. Same deal with DS2's lego set

    For Ds2 I'm thinking of Rush hour game. He enjoyed it at a playdate recently. May be kinetic sand? Is 7 too old for this?
    He's also asked for sneakers and sports stuff

    I'm struggling with my 11 & 7 year old boys too. They only want sports jerseys, a couple video games, and younger DS wants a nerf gun. I'm at a total loss for stockings.

    I have girls, almost 11 and 13. The younger one is still into Legos and toys and made a big wishlist. The older one only wants a new iphone - that's not happening! Unless I can get a good deal on an upgrade for myself and give her my SE (which would be way better than the 4s she is currently using).

    Trying to find family board or card games, maybe tickets for a family outting somewhere. It gets harder the older they get.....

    My DDs are 11 and 9, and Im sort of at a loss too. So far, theyre each getting a toque of their favourite sports team, footed pjs, a couple of books, and a travel mug (lately theyre really into bringing tea on the way to school, and are always stealing mine!).

    So, nothing big yet, but maybe well just stick with a few small things this year. Of course, both of them have been begging for an iphone and a puppy, but theres no way theyre getting either .

    Football cards, a couple of Legos...

    We are doing the want, need, wear, read gifts this year and are sticking to our budget as best we can!

    For stockings I do almost all candy/little food items and one novelty item.

    Thanks for the footed pj's idea. I saw pjs on everyone else's posts but the footed DS 2 is excited about. I am too for myself
