We are on a limited budget and have 3 boys; 2 12 yr olds and a 10 year old that have all the gaming systems out there and every electronic that could be wished for.

Any thoughts on useful, quality gifts that a 12/10 yr old would enjoy? You know at a reasonable price (under $75).

Thx :)

How about some classic non-electronic toys? You remember bicycles, skateboards, rollerskates, books, LEGOs, trains? My son loves LEGOs to this day and he's 30. He's also an avid reader. With the all the reports of childhood obesity epidemics, I'm leaning towards toys that promote physical activity.

Although a very recent "empty nester," I do have a thought for you ~ both my Kids were in the same situation courtesy of an over-lovin' Grandma with deep pockets! Often, when money was tight, I would create a X-mas stocking with individually wrapped oddities & goodies within. Both my Kids Loved it! In fact, last year after X-mas, my now grown Daughter (who now has a little one of her own) told me, "Mom, I sure wish you'd make us stockings again!" Who knew!?!?!

While you can't do it for under $75...if ur boys like playing about building them a backyard ice rink? We recently went that route and provided a gift that led to multiple memories...we found this bracket and rink kit by Iron Sleek that makes it easy to build. Obviously, you have to live in a colder climate and be willing to do the maintenance. Games like hockley, skating, broom ball (no skates required) are just a few of the options. Make winter fun and get the kids outdoors!!!

Have you ever picked up Geo caching? I gps and a membership and now they have hours of running around finding "treasures". Are they into sports? maybe you can pay for them to get into a rec team for soccer or something? If they like building things I would suggest an model to build and paint or a rc car to build.
