$218 on other holiday purchases such as candy, food and decorations
$141 on other non-gift purchases for themselves and their families
We’ve got some of the most unique gift ideas for you – as well as some of the trendiest – right here:
For the wee ones:
Anki Cosmo Robot, one of the year’s hottest toys, this very cool (and super cute) Robot who has a mind of his own. He can nudge you to play, express emotions in response to your actions, and keep you coming back for more! Download the free app and you are ready to play games all day! Plus, the more you play, the more games you unlock. You can purchase the Anki Cosmo Robot at Toys R Us and on Amazon and Ebay!
For the teens:
The WonderTech Invader Quadcopter Drone features a light and agile body that can be controlled from up to 300 feet away. The 6-axis gyro lets it perform one-touch flips; it features a collision protection shell and headless mode.
For your wee beastie:
Look no further than Amazon.com for the iFetch Interactive Ball Launcher – this great invention lets dogs play fetch to their heart’s content! Once your dog places the miniature tennis ball into the top of the iFetch tennis ball machine, this interactive dog toy throws it 10, 20 and even 30 feet. Adjust the launch distance with a touch of a button and let the fun begin.
