We have 5 nieces (ages 12 thru 19) and 1 nephew (15 yrs old) that we buy X-mas presents for. I'm not a big fan of commercialization of Christmas ... but hey, they're kids.
Anyhow, we always have a difficult time buying for the kids since we don't have any of our own, and aren't up on all the cool stuff. I think we got lucky this year with a present for our younger nieces. It's a charm bracelet with magnetic charms that you pop on and off. They're pretty cool. http://mogocharm.com/
We also picked up some weird animal-look toques (or for my American friends ... winter hats) for our neices. Apparently they're the in-thing for winter-wear
Thought the rest of you clueless uncles and aunts could use some help
Anyone got any other good ideas? We still need to find things that will work for the older nieces and the nephew ... and we're quickly running out of time
