Depending on child but superhero stuff, DVD's, car set , Lego, Video games, books are a good start. Sports equipment could work.

I have an 8 year old little brother...he is really into Transformers and Spiderman, and there are literally dozens of different things you could buy for him in those categories. Also, if he is into games, the Nintendo DS is really popular and there are tons of games available for that. Hope this helps!

I am a third grade teacher and a lot of the boys are into wrestling...WWE. They are also into nintendo DS and Wii so getting games for that would be a big hit.

My 9 year old nephew LOVES the Star Wars Lego sets, and they are available at a variety of price points. You can find them at Target, Kmart, Meijer, Toys-R-Us, etc., etc., etc. (and, of course, online at Amazon). Good luck!

My nine year old love Kynex's they let him use his imagination to build all types of things. Some are even motorized. He never ems to grow tired of them. Nerf guns are always a hit, no pun intended.

My son wants science stuff this year -- 9 is a hard age to buy for. Try the grow a frog kit, raising butterflies in the butterfly pavillion, a telescope, or they have a great gadget lab.

Where did you even find a 4 year old thread? The OP needs suggestions for a 13 year old now.

The 2 best Christmas presents you can give your child are a Bible (God's written Word) and the gift of your time. Take him to a homeless shelter and as a family, all of you give of your time preparing and serving meals to those who would otherwise not have a Christmas. Then go visit an elderly neighbor or someone who will be alone on Christmas Day and make their day brighter.

Then you give the child the written teachings of his religion. And don't be so disrespectful, AoA.

A few fun suggestions - depending on your price range.
This is a FUN toy.
Hot Wheels Video Racer Micro Camera Car - Green
This is also FUN and easy to do. It can be as complicated as the child likes or as easy. My son loves his!

I would get the child to write out his Christmas wish list for when he gets to see Santa. Make sure you look over his shoulder!

Maybe when they are old enough to know that "fictional" Santa isn't real, then you can have that conversation. Until then, let the kid believe that there is some real magic in this world.

My kids at 9 were kind of young to make any conscious decisions about a choice of any religion. I guess I could have coerced them to believe what ~I~ did, but I always sort of considered that more programming and obedience than true, personal believing. I know I am in the minority, though. We learn about different ones and they can choose (or not) when they know more and their frontal lobe/executive functioning is fully developed (which is usually in your 20s.)
