    Love the camera idea!!

    I might try the journal as well! Although my 12yr old nephew is such a ️boys boy LOL!

    Anyone else with pearls of wisdom?

    You could get them a Polaroid camera to share? Although the film is quiet expensive - $20 for 10 photos.

    Otherwise Kiki k has nice children's travel journals but again not for an older boy!

    You could also look at where they are going and book an 'experience' for them at that destination - zoo, cruise etc.

    What about a nice beach towel, swimmers, hat etc?

    Walkie talkie set?

    Solar powered torches?

    I think Computers games are a fantastic idea. Some ideas are:
    Books
    Christmas Movies
    Crayons
    Drawing Books
    Funny-bladed scissors
    Matchi cars
    yoyo
    Bubbles
