Regardless of what holidays you celebrate, the end-of-year festivities are right around the corner. If you choose to purchase gifts online, you need to order then in advance to allow for shipping time, backorders, and comparison shopping. We at GeekMom are here to help you with ideas for anyone on your gift list, from babies to grownups. We’ll be running a series of half a dozen or so posts, sorted by category or age group, with suggested gifts this holiday season. Many of our writers have contributed to our series of gift guides, so the ideas run the gamut from popular bestsellers to more obscure, interesting gifts with which you may not be familiar. Chances are there will be something that appeals to you. Feel free to add your own recommendations in the comments below.
This week’s guide is targeted at the grade school kids. Some of the gift ideas could be given to older kids, or even adults, but they are mostly aimed at the middle age kids. Don’t forget to check out the gift guides that have already run: Week #1: Books, Week #2: Games, and Week #3: Small Kids.
