    Default Christmas Gift Ideas Ė prize competition

    Itíll be Christmas again soon and, as usual, Iím short of good ideas for gifts.

    I suspect Iím not the only one in this situation, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a competition to help myself, forum members and other readers out.

    What is your best idea for a gift that costs NZ$100 or less. (Feel free to mention multiple ideas.) The gift should appeal to both boys and girls aged 12 to 16. (There, thatís made it harder!)

    The prize for the best idea (in my opinion) is a gift voucher worth £20 (Amazon.co.uk) or US$30 (Amazon.com). Please make all suggestions before the end of December 7 New Zealand time.

    Some form of shoe mounted mirror so as they mope around staring down at the ground they can still see where they are going?

    Or 3 physio appointments for texters thumb.

    Sorry, but the neices and nephews have all universally been asking for i-tunes / cash for the last 4 years. Put the money towards games consoles / games, and that's both boys and girls.

    That is one of the reasons why we - in our wider family - don't Xmas gifts any more. And this now for a number of years. We concentrate on birthdays to be "really" individual with out presents. So a general answer to this "problem" is IMHO not possible.

    Is this for presents remaining in the country, or to be sent overseas?
