Get them each a leg lamp.

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

If adults know it's cool, it isn't anymore.

At this age it's almost easier to go back to the 4 choice idea, where they kind of have to tell you:
I want- I need
I would wear- I would read

As mentioned by 2G, AAA isn't shiny but because it goes with the-kid-and-not-the-car, can be a great present that you never know when it'll be used.

He drives (her friends drive?)- so gas card, maybe?

So far the best idea my husband has had is to get our oldest a bunch of $10 gift cards to his favorite places,

because we are total dorks, it would be hilarious (to me) to give random value gift cards (unmarked) - to each of them, so they would have no idea.
yeah, maybe the total is still $50 - but the amounts would be $8.73; $2.11; $23.01 etc...*

peace & also, always socks

* one can go online and find the value of almost any gift card, so a few minutes with google & he would know, but he'd still have to do a little leg work.
