Why not give a unique board game this year? Take a look at the LAWSUIT! game-- the 1st legal-themed board game for kids as young as 8.  LAWSUIT! teaches what it's like to be a lawyer.  The game's setting is the day-to-day operation of a law firm.  Players bring fictitious lawsuits with whimsical premises, and can opt to appeal and settle cases.  It would make a fun, educational, holiday gift for the young attorney-wannabe.

There are some really great suggestions for gifts for kids!  I'm searching (last minute of course) online for gifts for my 2 Nephews who are age 8 and 10 and am having a really hard time this year!   I managed to find the 8 year old a really cute kids bedding set from the boys depot in a transportation theme but I'm still looking for something for the 10 year old as he's past the age of playing with many of the little toys out there.   If anyone has any suggestions on what to buy a 10 year old boy let me know!!!
