It’s the time of the year when kids all across the globe are busy making their Christmas list with hopes that Santa will bring less underwear and socks than games and toys.  But if your kids are anything like mine, it would take winning the lottery or at least a second mortgage, for us to be able to buy everything on their list.

For the most part kids are easy to please when it comes to Christmas presents.  While they might be disappointed if they don’t receive the new i-whatever, you can be assured that as long as there are gifts to open on Christmas morning, the more the better of course, they will be excited with all of their new “stuff”.

But what new “stuff” should you get?  Instead of following the trend of buying presents based on the latest advertising campaign, how about gifts that are different, creative and won’t leave you in debt until next holiday season?  Well, that’s exactly what we are going to take a look at.  The following are gifts that are a bit out of the ordinary but are sure to make any kid happy on Christmas morning.
