    Default Gift ideas - 6 & 8 year old nephews

    Can anyone help me with gift ideas for my 6 year old and 8 year old nephews .... I generally spend about $100 each. They have everything and when I ask their mum she just says anything outdoors is great...she generally throws out most of their toys after a year or two... Anybody got any ideas????

    Basket ball and hoop , any sports equipment really or remote control cars or planes? DS loves Lego and for $100 you can get the really cool bigger ones

    Default Gift ideas - 6 & 8 year old nephews

    Some of the things DS1 loved around that age:

    An explorer pack with things like a magnifying glass, bug catcher, butterfly net, a book to help them identify the bugs etc... All in a little back pack.

    A water fight kit. The big super soaker guns, water balloons (seriously recommend the bunch a balloons brand), a beach towel.

    Nerf guns with extra ammo packs.

    You could buy a joint gift of a telescope with a star gazing book.

    If they already have a lot of toys and things, how about paying for entry to a theme park or something like that?

    It's not for outdoors, but you can't go wrong with lego for that age group. Target currently have buy one, get one half price on all toys, which is great because lego is rarely on sale and you would get some awesome sets within budget.

    We have all but given up on toys for ds since he was 7. They just break or he gets bored. Instead we opt for experience gifts now .. So far we have done -
    Surfing lessons
    Private skateboarding tutor
    Indoor rock climbing
    Kayaking tour down the river
    Season pass to movie world &SeaWorld
    Movie passes
    Australia zoo

    Term of art classes (parents approval required)

    Skates/ rollerblades with a pass to the local skate rink?

    Lego for sure!

    Skimming boards for down at the beach or a decent boogey board?

    Skateboard? My DS8 loves his.

    Passes to a local fun centre/ water park/ fun park?


    A sporting experience ticket maybe?

    Skins are pretty popular as the kids can wear them through winter while playing sport. Sports hoody? Adidas tracksuit?

    We recently got our 8 yr old an Eziroller. Wow it is the best thing ever. Good honest outdoor fun but $150.

    Ten books each. They sound like they have enough gadgets.

    I'm a big believer in buying experiences rather than toys that they'll get over in a week. How about a ticket to the zoo and maybe a meet and greet with one of their favourite animals?
