I'm giving the foster kids in my area a better Christmas and I was just wondering...what are some things your teenage sons have asked to get for Christmas that aren't incredibly expensive? Also do 8 year olds still like hot wheels cars? Thanks!Answer Question
I have nephews, yes the 8 year old still likes hot wheels and the older boys are always asking for expensive stuff like video games and IPods, if you knew if the boy already had an IPod you could get him a music down load pre-paid card, maybe a CD walkman or clothes. It seems to me that boys enjoy new clothes almost as much as a girl does. My family usually does secret Santa for at least 1 kid a year, depending on what we can afford and I always include a warm hat and gloves. If you live in a colder area, I would include those because the kids are always loosing them, or tearing them while sledding. I hope this helped. Have fun!

My 14 year old LOVES food, so whenever my in-laws ask what to get him, that's what I tell them! I make a list of all his favorites (and items that I rarely buy him). Soda pop can be included too. I know that food might sound weird, but seriously, you should see my son -- money does nothing for him...it's food that gets him going!
I agree about the CD's, prepaid music download cards, etc. Also DVDs. Some dvds are so cheap (depending on the movie).
Also, I'd just ask the kids for wish list items. Tell them they may not get everything they ask for, but you are looking for additional ideas (I do this with my whole family)
