    My kids still love footed one-piece pj’s, but they’re not so easy to find in big kid sizes. Carters has a nice selection up to size 14, if anyone’s looking.

    Also, I saw you mention kinetic sand. My 9-year old still LOVES kinetic sand, along with all the other sensory stuff (squishies, slime, stress balls, etc).

    DS is 9 and is getting a baseball bag, Garfield day to day calendar, baseball night light, extreme dot to dot, baseball almanac, some kind of board game. DD2 is 12, getting her extreme dot to dot, charm bracelet, earrings, face mask, mystery mosaic book, board game, post it cat holder.
    That’s what I have so far

    Thanks, I was scouring websites and I only found footless ones. I hadn't realized Carter's had the bigger sizes. They have a 25% off $50 which brings the sleepers to about $11. Will the price get better around Thanksgiving? If not, I'll buy today.

    I've seen size 8 at Costco before but not the bigger sizes. When does it become available in Costco? Does anyone know?

    And, I'm glad to hear kinetic sand is hot even at 9. We're in!

    I have never seen them available above size 8 at Costco, I buy them through Carter's. Not sure when the best price will be.

    My b/g twin 11year olds are turning 12 in 2 days. Seems crazy that they are going to be 12. But here’s what I have so far-

    dd-
    Team specialty jackets for her dance team
    harry potter bedding from pbteen
    Some earrings
    kate spade crossbody purse that I got on deep clearance

    ds-
    Undertale and Legend of Zelda posters, tshirts & games
    more video games & Lego sets

    These are what they requested. Several things here I need to order.

    My In-laws are working on memory books that I plan to have reproduced for all my kids and their cousins, if they want them. So they will be getting those gifts too.

    Trying to find family board or card games, maybe tickets for a family outting somewhere. It gets harder the older they get.....
    Some board game/game recommendations that both my 7 and 11 year olds love:

    Ticket to Ride (We have two editions, and they both get play)
    Dragonwood (a current favorite)
    Backgammon
    Farkle (good stocking stuffer)
    Shut the Box
    Mancala
    Jenga

    We are also going to try the want/need trick this year.
    DD is 10- She wants a laptop for middle school next year (and a phone and a puppy-which can't happen), needs a desk chair for her room, wear with be her favorite seasonal Lush products, and I have a book picked out (the Odd one Out)
    DS is turning eight a christmas. He wants a Switch and a rock tumbler (want/need), wear will be a watch (he reacts to the Garmin Vivofit so need to find a regular watch), and still need to find a good book he'd like. His birthday he'll get a switch game.

    I go a little crazy on stocking stuffers so they will still have plenty of fun, but limiting the chaos will be a big relief this year.

    Thanks for weighing in. I'm hoping Carter's will have a better deal come Black Friday
