Christmas Shopping

I’m pleased to report that most of my Christmas shopping is finished. That doesn’t mean all the Christmas knitting is finished, but I’m pleased with my progress.

The biggest problem I have each year is the nephews. The nieces are easy. I knit them something pretty and they always love it. Nephews don’t seem to like anything that doesn’t involve a video game or flashing lights. As the boys get older (2 in high school and one in the high single digits), they are harder to shop for. Since we don’t have kids yet, we don’t know what the latest cool thing is. Plus, have you seen the prices for the latest cool things? Yikes.

So, I call out to you, my frugal clan to ask for your help. How do you satisfy the male children in your life?
