When my nieces and nephews were young they would ask for certain Christmas gifts. I always told them Aunt Barb does not buy junk. My idea of junk gifts included sponge animals that grew in water, plastic trucks from the dollar stores, snow cone machines they would use twice, or anything gone after one use.

I would buy bikes, computers, a desk for their rooms, good jewelry and video games. These lasted for a long time and gave me a better feeling about spending my hard-earned cash.
