TheReader Posted August 2, 2012 Share Posted August 2, 2012 Okay, I normally roll my eyes at these posts because I think "how are a bunch of people on the internet supposed to know your kid better than you do????" I hereby repent of that eye-rolling for all time. My son is turning 15 next month, and then there's Christmas, both of which we need to buy for on our upcoming US trip. He likes Lego. He does not like tech gadgets. I'd like to broaden his horizons, but I have no idea what's even available these days. Suggestions??? He has a room FULL of Lego already, and $$ to buy his own when we're in the US (he saves his allowance all year for this purpose). He has an iPod shuffle that he rarely, if ever, uses. He has his own camera that he uses some of the time. We do not want to give him his own personal "to keep in his room" laptop. He's not in scouts or anything and we don't have places to use a lot of outdoor gear such as hiking gear, etc. He likes to draw & write, but I don't know how to turn that into gift material. It needs to be something that fits in our luggage to come back to Brazil, and we are getting the younger 2 boys each a Nintendo 3DS for their Christmas gift (+ a game or two), just to give an idea of budget. The only thing oldest has mentioned wanting is a new Lego set, the collectible R2D2 that was recently released. We might do that, but then again, he might buy it himself. Help a girl out --- what's out these days? What does your 15 yr old like??? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
