My oldest DS is turning 13 in July. I realize that's a few months away, but I'm starting to think now about what to get him and I'm coming up empty.
He's always in desperate need of clothes because he has grown out of them as quickly as we buy them (getting pretty tall) but usually his extended family (4 grandparents, 4 uncles + families) get him clothes. We usually get him the "fun" stuff - and he's not yet at the age that he thinks clothes are "fun".
He has some electronics (portable DVD player, MP3 player, cell phone, netbook, DS) as well as video game systems for family use (Wii, PS2, computer games).
I intend to get all three boys a Kindle or Nook for Christmas, so don't want to get him that now.
When I ask him what he wants, he just says "I don't know".
He is involved in Cross Country and Track at school as well as band. He loves to read, draw, and listen to music (his MP3 player will have to do as we can't really afford an iPod).
So - any suggestions? I'm really clueless on this. Thanks!
