holiday gift guide: for kids

I had a list a mile long of gifts for kids and then I decided to do the most obvious of all things to narrow it down: talk to actual children. I have nine younger siblings, and five of them haven't hit their teens yet so they were perfect for helping with this gift guide. Some of the items on this list are the actual presents I bought them this year for Christmas (they just don't know it yet), others are things they asked Santa for, and then I added a pick or two of my own.

The "appropriate" age group on all of these items vary, but kids don't care what age is specified on a package, they like what they like. My four-year-old brother loves playing Mario, my twelve-year-old sister is ecstatic at the possibility of receiving headbands as a gift, and my nine-year-old sister is all about new clothes. If you're buying for your own kids you already know this, but if you're buying for a friend's kid, nieces, nephews, or even younger siblings it's your best bet to talk to a parent and find out what kids are into currently because it really might surprise you.
