My post from UnMod.

Let's see here:

For Dad: a bigass grill and tons of grill stuff. He really needed a new one.

For Mom: stuff for entertaining around the home. Stuff like a heated dish for misc. stuff for parties and this huge bowl and stand that you can put tons of ice and booze in. It's great, and I really want one for myself now.

For Bro: a really nice cappuccino machine.

For Sis: a 45 piece knife/kitchen set, blender, and a juicer.

For G-Ma: lots of flowery and smelly shit. Bath stuff, candles, slippers, etc. She really digs it.

For G-Pa: more garage stuff, as usual, and a really cool AA battery charger.

Wow, that's quite the chunk of change you're giving.

I'd suggest going with GBA Micros. They're $40 at Wal-mart, smaller and brighter than SPs, and the only thing they lose (besides a little bit of screen size) is the ability to play GBC games and *gasp* connect to a GCN!

Good idea. GBA games should be cheap by then, and if I see somewhere that has some bundles for sale, I can kill two birds with one stone.

I really think having their own little video game system is a good thing for a child in such a situation. If not for the small amount of escape they provide, then for the fact that that little piece of electronics is theirs, and theirs alone. They can take it with them, they can hide it if they need to, and they can pull it out and play it when they want to. Because being a kid with nothing sucks.
