I need something inexpensive to send to my 2 friend's boys.
I need an idea fast.
I have to be able to mail it or email it. ;)
It has to be cheap because I'm out of Christmas money.
I realize it may not get to them on time but they will be okay with that.
I've got everybody else in the family covered (their mom,dad & 2 sisters).
I didn't spend much (it's the thought that counts, right?
They are both into sports: baseball. Help! TIA

What can I do next?

My teenage boys would be thrilled with a card with $20 bucks in it. Or even ten. Or even 5.

Itunes gift cards, or BestBuy, or Dick's.

But yeah, cash is the bomb.

Baseball cards? Even adult sports fans (my husband and his cousin included) love opening up a pack of baseball cards to see if they got a special limited edition card or one of their favorite players. And you can attach a gift card to them too if you want.



answers from New York on

Depending on where they live...
- gift card to Target
- gift card to a local pizza joint
- gift card to the local "gaming" store

Give each one $10 and they'll likely "pool" their resources and go do something together!
