Anything cool I should know about that human children about those ages would like?


Although it was fun to buy for my children when they were young, it has become tough. I have a 36 year old daughter and 15 year old son. I try to make our gifts "memory-making ones". Tickets to a future baseball game, basketball game. A play. Two years ago I gifted the two of them and son-in-law tickets to a wolf preserve (they had vip passes, stayed all day and played with the wolves, foxes, etc) and the hotel accommodations they needed. Thus, they made a memory.

I have decided on something for my son this year. He was totally impressed when they took a photo of him and orthodontist a few weeks ago when he got his braces off and handed him a piece of white paper that developed into a photo as he watched. So, he is getting a fuji Polaroid camera. I think he will enjoy taking photos, giving them to his friends or putting them on his bulletin know, the old-fashioned way, instead of on your phone where no one sees them.

My daughter is getting him an electric razor.

I'm still working on this year's memory making gifts. My brainstorm better come quickly, with only 15 days to go:)
