Mine are a couple years behind that, but they have actually asked for clothes. FirstLock still fits into a lot of his clothes from middle school, so Mrs. Lock has been buying him t-shirts that are more sports/college/high school oriented and less super heroes and Mickey Mouse.

FirstLock wants a wireless x-box controller with a charging stand.

Owlboy wants a phone. He'll get one, but no service so it will only work around our house with wifi. He is always borrowing ours to make movies/puppet shows.

As an off hand thought. If you do allowances, you can give them a pre-paid debit card and then put their allowance on that. That works well for ours, since they spend a lot of their money on computer shopping so I do not have to put my card in all the time, I just put money on their card. You can load $10 on it and then let them know that any allowance/chore money will go on the card.
