    Default 13yr. old gift ideas?

    I have a nephew who is 13 yrs. old and I have no clue as to what 13yr. old boys are into today. Any suggestions? He is well rounded loves academics and sports.

    gift certificates! ....Seriously! to the movie theatre, the mall, blockbuster etc.

    other ideas

    video game for whatever system he has
    a nice soccer ball if he plays
    jersey for favorite sports team


    Really though, I wouldn't ever try to buy for a 13yr old without asking them or their parents what was "on the list" Everything they want costs a fortune!

    That's why gift certificates are great.... it can go towards something

    I have a 15 year old boy and I know it can be tricky to buy for them. How about a gift certificate for east park Intencity. They have wall climbing, bumper cars, the arcade. Fleetway bowling is popular too. They have a new climbing wall, pool tables, and a rope course too. It's right next to the Dairy Queen too. I don't know what your nephew's interests are, but Chapter's gift certificates are popular with my kids too. My son's into medieval sword fighting and , so some of the more moderately priced items at Relic's on Southdale Rd. have gotten an enthusiastic "Cooool!".

    I have been checking out the different website's based on the idea's given.

    Any suggestions where to buy the best quality soccer (Brazil, Arsenal or Barcelona) jersey's, toques, scarf etc. at the best price in London?

    Best place to buy "pirates of the caribean 2" dvd and play station games?

    Another idea is gift certs to the music store. I have a date with my son today so he can cash one in from Christmas. It's for a store downtown, so we'll add lunch in there as well. This means I can hopefully squeeze in some quality time.
