<p>Thought this might be a fun thread - for anyone who has one (or two) gifts left to purchase yet no great idea what to get. Let's see who we can help out!</p>
<p>Of course, I have a personal interest in this, because I have ONE gift I haven't settled on!</p>
<p>I have a history of buying my nephews who are currently 10 and 7 great "out of the box" ideas - they are sort of "out of the box" kids. Gifts in the past included the big cardboard building blocks when they were little, a puppet theater for putting on shows, "real" walkie talkies, etc.</p>
<p>Here's a description of the "problem" nephew I have yet to buy for:
10 years old
Lives in Brooklyn - has plenty of enriching experiences in the big city w/his parents who are very gung ho on "field trips".
Extremely bright - really, EXTREMELY.<br>
Musical - plays piano - has participated in the New York Philharmonic Kids Composers program.
School extracurricular - Chess club 2 or 3 years.
Sports -just casual.
Is maxed out on Lego sets!
Loves board games</p>
<p>Any ideas on a creative, unique idea for a 10 year old musically inclined chess player??? :)</p>
