  • Everything under the sun. And I laughed at her. She knows better than that. But I understand how teens feel entitled to everything. We give no more than 3 gifts to family, and give the most to people who are in need.

  • DS-16 gave me a 3 page typed list of CDs and video games he wants! But was sure to tell me it was not that he expects them all but so I have plenty of choices.

  • My son wanted an XBox at first, but now he's changed his mind and he wants an electric keyboard. We have a piano but it's an antique and I can't afford to have it tuned so my son could play it so he got tired of waiting and just wants the keyboard! LOL! And he's getting it since it's cheaper than the XBox and much better for him...he also plays trumpet, drums and guitar.

  • Some of the teens I have worked with wanted clothes, DVDs, video games, iPods or mp3 players, books, arts and crafts stuff. As a teen, I HATED getting bath wash and smell good stuff (lotions). I used to ALWAYS get that and perfume when people didn't know what to get me. I hardly ever used it. My niece asked for a iTunes gift card, which I thought was pretty good b/c then she could buy the songs she wanted.

  • We celebrate Chanukah. My sons don't ask for anything because they know that the last night gift is a $10 gift which is usually a movie that we know that they want. I only have 2 at home (they are 18 and 19) that we buy for but the movie has been their last night gift since they were 12. Until then it was an age appropriate toy (action figure starting at around 5-6), a collection of Hot Wheel cars or a box of trading cards that fell in the $8-$10 price value. We have never spent more than 410 for their last night gift and have never spent more than $50 each for all (8) of their Chanukah gifts. They have never felt jipped because they know that their gifts are symbolize the miracle of Chanukah.
