My boys are 11 and 10. This year, we are taking a different approach to gift giving for them. Rather than buying just for the sake of having a "pile" under the tree, we are doing something I saw on Pinterest. They will each get something they want (they both are getting iPod Touches), something they need (each will get a case, earbuds and iTunes giftcards to go with their iPods), something to wear (the 11 year old asked for new hightops and the 10 year old asked for a nice watch), and something to read (Both are getting a nice hardback book). In addition to those things, we got them Disney Infinity for XBOX as a joint gift. In their stockings, I will put a DVD for each, and XBOX Points Card, and other small things. It is SUCH a relief to have almost all of their gifts purchased already, and I know they will be thrilled with them. I know once they get their ipods, they won't play with much else anyway, and they usually get cash/gift cards from extended family, so they can buy whatever they may want that they didn't get from DH and I.
