What to get a 12 year old for Christmas?

I am going to start Christmas shopping and I am stumped on what to get my 12 year old. Of course he wants all the expensive things like X-Box 360 , rockband, and other electronics. I've thought about getting him this but then he would have less gifts than my other two children who are 6 and 8. I think that they are all going to get less this year b/c they are getting older and they don't want many toys.

  • I think he is old enough to decide if he wants less, more expensive presents or more, cheaper presents. I'd rather buy just a few things for the same price. At least you know he will like what he gets and that is less junk to clog up your house!

  • My mom gave me and my sister the choice. One big gift and stockings or a few smaller gifts and a stocking. I always chose the bigger more expensive one and my sister a few smaller gifts. That way we wern't surprised on Christmas morning when one got "more" than the other.
