What do your boys want?

I have an 11 yr old and he says he does not know what he wants for Christmas.
I am a mother of 6 sons and he is 3rd to oldest. I am big on NOT getting items that keep him sitting in the house so other than a basketball goal which is for all the boys, what else could I get him? Laptop? Game system?
Any ideas?? He is easy to satisfy.

  • Mine wants the books I just bought at the school book fair, a wii (for the family) with baseball for him, and that's about it. We don't do a lot for Chanukah. Mostly a larger family present, like a wii or an overseas trip. The kids then get smaller things like music, books, or something that I see that they would like.
