I hope this helps you with your gift planning this season. Below I've detailed some of my favorite gifts out of this list! Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comment section.

SPY NET: Stealth Video Glasses

Every boy wants to have spy glasses, but the Mission: Impossible-grade spy gear is a little pricey. Enter SPY NET. Their stealth video glasses will record up to 20 minutes of video and 2,000 pictures that can be uploaded to the family computer or to SpyNetHQ.com.

Uploads are done via the included USB cable, which is PC and Mac compatible. This item is not intended for children under 3 years of age due to choking hazards.

MSRP: $39.99

Crayola Glow Book

Crayola Glow Book

Do you have a creative guy on your list? Give them the opportunity to express that creativity with Crayola's Glow Book. With the included six glow markers and four removable drawing surfaces, kids will be able to create glowing, moving, animated art. Don't worry about running out of paper. The drawing surface wipe clean with a damp cloth so kids can continue to create masterpieces as often as they like!

The Glow Book is recommended for ages 6 and up and 3 AA batteries are required.

MSRP: $29.99

Razor A Kick Scooter

I'm sure junior wants a Corvette or maybe even a Monster Truck for Christmas, but since that's not at all practical, he'll just have to settle for a simpler, yet still awesome, mode of transportation. Enter Razor's A Kick Scooter.

Kids will have to use their feet to get moving, but the A Kick scooter is a much more fun and convenient way to get from point A to point B.

Constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum, the Razor A will stand up to years of use (and abuse). The handle tube and foot deck will fold together in a compact configuration to reduce it's footprint when not in use. It's recommended for ages 5 and up and will support up to a 143 pound rider. The Razor provides a six-month warranty with purchase.

MSRP: $44.99

Crayola Crayon Maker

This is something I would have loved to have had when I was a kid. Growing up, my little brother and I were hard on the equipment--crayons included. I'm sure that we weren't the only kids to have this problem. Crayola apparently knew this syndrome and has introduced the Crayon Maker to help fight the epidemic.

The Crayola Crayon Maker has an internal heater that takes all those broken pieces of crayons and forms them into brand new ones! Kids can even create custom colors by mixing and matching different colored crayons. I'm almost tempted to buy one of these myself (and some crayons) just to see this thing in action.

MSRP: $39.99

Angry Birds: Knock On Wood Game

Don't like your kids playing on your expensive iPhone, iPad, or Android device? Do they beg to play Angry Birds all the time anyways? Mattel has a solution. They've introduced a board game based from the game that has such a huge cult following.

Angry Birds: Knock on Wood allows 2-4 players construct castles, draw cards, and let the birds fly to tear down their recently built buildings. Included in the game is 3 Angry birds, 4 pigs, 1 bonus points star, 1 bonus egg, 1 bird launcher, 14 building blocks, 40 mission cards, 16 points cards, and of course an instruction manual.

MSRP: $39.99
