We usually give a gift to each kid individually, less than $25, usually something they've been asking for or can use. This year bh, only one kid specifically had been asking for something. But I can't just get for one and not the others. I also don't like tons of extra toys and stuff hanging around the house.
Any good ideas for a 3 yo boy, 5 yo girl, 7 yo girl and 11 yo boy? I know kids have different personalities, but can you start me off please? :-)

I got my kids an mp3 player and loaded it up with music. Was like 20 or 25 dollars on Amazon

Thanks, the only one who'd appreciate it, I got it for his afikomen/bday gift- and still haven't completely filled it up with music Confused

Besides the youngest, my kids each have a Kindle (used sparingly).

The girls like dolls etc but we have enough bh. My 3 yo loves cars/police/trucks etc and building, but bh we have enough if that too.

I'm thinking to just make it a big family gift, which we've done as well, but I already got my DD the gift she wanted... And her bday is not till the fall!

we're getting our kids an air hockey table as a combined present. Not an actual table, it's like the table without legs so it can go on a coffee table or on the floor.

Or $99 for the smaller model, which most people seem to say is great.

I just bought my 6 year old son an adorable carry on suitcase for his bday. He was over the moon with excitement! Feels like a million dollars.

You can do a singing mike for 3 year old. The 5 year old will appreciate anything doll house or to play house with like the fake high heel shoes plus a purse. 7 year old girl would appreciate a white board to draw and play with. The 11 year old I would buy him great headphones for MP3 or fill the MP3 with more music. You can also buy him a watch a small handheld game.

If you are near an amazing savings you can get an arts and crafts project to do each night. Most of them come in packs for of 3 or 4. One night you can bake Chanukah cookies and do decorating. A really nice family present is to send away a picture that can be made into a family puzzle. If you do this, the presents can be smaller but will be very exciting.

Thanks for so many ideas! I'll probably be going with the knock-off doodle board for either just the two girls or also the 3 yo too. Or I'll get the 3 yo a random truck, which we really do NOT need another, but I know he'd like it. For the 11 yo boy I'll either do the headphones or the watch.
Thanks again!
