Every year for the boys' birthdays people ask us what they would like or in the case of my dad I need to put my foot down and tell him what to get or he gets something that ends up being a nightmare. I already got him to get Sam an O3 backpack that was listed on one of the daily deal websites. We usually get over run with toys and then I end up like trying to keep their room organized. I plan to suggest puzzles for Sam as he loves the 40 or so piece Spiderman ones he has (has three different ones) among others.
Just not sure what some good gift suggestions would be. Elliott is getting a water table and wagon from us while Sam is getting a bike helmet and his first bike. MIL said she was getting them power wheels/four wheeler. Not sure if she plans to get them one each or one to share.
And it doesn't have to be toys. It can be crafts or educational or something that will last a few years.
