  • Go to for some great ideas. Even narrow it down by personality, gender, and age!!

  • The one year old would probably prefer a set of different size shipping boxes... or a ring of real keys. Amazingly lacking in greed at that age...

    The 10yo, otoh, is much tougher: you need to know at least something about his taste, 'cause he has an opinion. Some kids at that age are still right into whatever they liked as 7yos, but lots of them have moved on. If you don't know, you'll make a major faux pas.

    I like giving adults 'consumable' gifts --anything from homemade chocolates to baking mixes, candles or things people lose a lot of (mittens, scarves)... You can make up a selection for everyone you're gifting, 'cause no one said anyone's gift HAS to be different from everyone else's.

  • Bed Bath and Beyond is having a sale on monogramed candles, legos, dinosuars and cars are usually a big hit with boys. The 10 year should be able to give you a list so you have some idea for him, clothes, $10-$15 bottles of wine are a big hit or restaurant gift cards.

  • Toys, clothes, books, maybe a movie for the older child.
