We like to get a family game or two for each of the kids. Pindaloo is a fun game for kids of all ages. It teaches eye hand coordination while being a lot of fun.

This would be a fun game to play with friends and have some fun friendly competition.

    These ideas are great. My boys love Legos, would love a drone and any type of camera, and would definitely enjoy the Sphero kit. They are hoping to get a computer to share this year, and that will be their only gift, making things easy for me!

    These are such awesome gifts! I wonder why I never thought to get Zach a remote control boat to use in the lake in all these years??!! I think that might actually still be a great gift for him. Thanks for sharing all the ideas.
