Brother: 12- When I was 12 I was more like a boy, my mom had such a hard time trying to get me presents, and that was when she was buying them! If he likes dirtbikes, Try finding a way to make an accessory or perhaps a t-shirt. Maybe, although it might be a bit of a challenge, a bag for his helmet? Videogames, seeing hes into dirtbiking, He probably likes sport games a lot. not really any of the olderstuff... my only suggestion on this one is making something for him to organize his games with, he would use it for a while if he doesn't already have one. Try putting something on with a stencil like a dirtbike or something. I feel sympathy for you. 12 year old kids are hard to give gifts too. Everyone hopes they don't throw them in the closet! Good Luck!  Smiley

The helmet bag idea is perfect, but my mom beat me to it years and years ago. I do, however, like the video game organizer though. Any idea how to make one? I'm not very talented in the "building stuff" area.

Oh goodness... how to build one.... Frankly, Im not too great in the building department myself... let me see.... Hes 12.... he probably isnt delicate with things, so you want something that will last. How bout something like a shoe tree? A peice of cloth with a bunch of pockets to place the games in. You could sew on little dirtbikes too! haha. If you want you could get a box of somekind... and decorate the outide to his liking, try to find the dimensions of the games, and get a box slightly bigger. The games are usually In cd form nowadays, and come in cases the same size as DVDs. I want to keep the boxes, but I like the Cds in regular cases . Perhaps take a regular CD case, and Revamp it a bit, and make a  box for him to keep his cases in? Hope that helped!

           For a shirt for your dad, you could be "inspired" by http://www.piratemod.com/.  And if the crafting urge still strikes, you could make your SIL an abacus.
