I have two kids in this category - one boy and one girl, plus another girl right on the cusp.  So you better believe I'll be doing my own Christmas shopping from this list as well.

Kids ranging from 5 to 12 quite possible love Christmas the most.  Many of them still believe in Santa Claus and Christmas morning is JUST THE BEST with this age group.  The excitement runs deep.

I've hand-picked 10 items for boys and 10 items for girls.  I think there is a little bit of everything - sports stuff, beauty stuff, electronic stuff, game stuff and just lots and lots of STUFF.  I'm fairly certain you may find a few things!

Let's start with those boys first.
