So what are your tweens going to be getting for Christmas?

I am pretty much at a loss as to what to get my dd. I mean there are only so many movies and video games we can afford to get. Not to mentions that gets kind of boring. She doesnt even know what she really wants. I would like to start to get away from all the toys.

  • A big trampoline with an enclosure. I have had one in my yard for 6 years, and it is worn out. We need a new one. It got a LOT of use.

  • WEE if she is unlikely to do any physical activities. Does she have a scooter and a bike? We are likely getting another laptop and the kids will split it for now. I want to do something active and ongoing though.

  • I have boys 9 & 10. I think boys stay outside active longer so we are getting the Fuzion scooters about $100 apiece and perhaps an inexpensive I-pod type($35 each) listening device. then stocking stuffers from the school book fair (this last week) and some personal items ie;deodorant, shampoo, body wash etc...I almost always include a book and underwear and socks, thrilling I know, but they are starting to want more high $$$ things so they get less quantity and some basics slipped in LOL Oh and yes I do start in August (or earlier) for Christmas shopping because well who can afford it all in one month???
