Wicked. My girls are grown and I have an excellent relationship with them. The boys are coming for a visit and I'm trying to do something nice for them as a surprise.

i'm 13, so i'll only have to go back a couple years...
i liked to ride my dirtbike, watch TV, play computer games, play sports, and talk with friends
i really wanted a cell phone, a new gaming system (now, it'd either be the PS3 or the Xbox 360, ask him which one he wants before you buy it, there's a real rivalry going on in the gaming industry between the two), and i also wanted a TV for my room. i wouldn't suggest this, but it's an option. a rather expensive option would be an iPod or MP3 player. may i suggest this: kids these days have a tendency to lean towards the iPod or Zune. other MP3 players not as much. also, the new iPod video is the most popular amongst us. I have the iPod video, however, and it suits me fine. if you are going to buy a video iPod (be it the new iPod nano or the iPod video,) make it at least 40 Gigabytes (GBs.)
some cheaper things you can get him would be: a skateboard (get him a real one from a real skate shop, there's a real difference between a walmart board and a real board), or a BB gun, or even a few video games (make sure they are for his gaming system, whichever one you have or choose).
I hope this helps!
If you're leaning towards a handheld device, lean towards Playstation's PSP than the Nintendo DS. i made a mistake in begging my mom to buy the DS, then when i finally got it, i was upset that it didn't have any good games for it. i really should've done my homework. xD
I also like the person above me's statement to get a rip-stik. they are about 77 Dollars at wal-mart, however, but from what i have heard, they are fun if you have pavement around. like, sidewalks and cul-de-saks and stuff.
ooh, and the first person's statement, to buy him tickets to a sporting event, would be a great idea. for my 13th birthday, my parents got me great seats to a baseball game with my favorite team. they won, and it was a great time. however, you should find out what his favorite sport is, then his favorite team in that sport. if it's like, tampa, and you live in like, new york, then wait for an away game where tampa comes to new york to play. reserve tickets to this event through ticketmaster (link below with the rest).

Movie party theme for hall or at home. Have a movie themed party. They sell decoration kit and lots of decorations for this at oriental trading. com. If at home watch a cool movie, have popcorn and all kids of candy and junk food. Make or buy pizza and have sundaes. Have a sleep over with the girls if you want. Have a dance in a hall with this theme. Have everhyone wear a movie star costume. Favors: black gold metallic beads from oriental, directors clapboard photo keychain from oriental, sunglasses from oriental or windy city novelities (make sure to buy adult ones).
Neon glow in the dark This is a cool theme!
For the invites oriental trading has neon badges. They are neon nylon necklaces that have a clear plastic case. You need to make the cards on your computer using the business card maker on your computer or just use the MS Word. You might want to put a really big VIP in color and on the back at the top Nicole's Neon Bash in cool color and font and then the party info, who what when.
Oriental trading sells Neon gangster hats.
Oriental sells neon sunglasses.
Oriental also sells neon jelly bracelets
Glow in the dark bracelets and necklaces, lot of sites have these.

More neon themes go along with Glow in the dark.

These appetizers were great at our sweegt 16:
2 softened cream cheese.
1 16oz sour cream
1 packet taco seasoning.
Mix with mixer. Put in bottom of a cookie sheet. Top with shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes and green onions. Use the cheese but you can altered the rest to your taste, maybe add black olives. Make 2 of these. Serve with tostitos scoops.
6 cups Crispix cereal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
12 ounce chocolate chips
2 cups powdered sugar
Melt peanut butter, butter and chocolate chips together in the microwave or on the stove. Stir into cereal. Put powdered sugar in a paper sack. Put cereal mixture in and shake until well coated.
Silver Dollar Sandwiches:
These are silver dollar rolls made by your bakery in the grocery store. We have them in our store just ready to grab, for large orders call ahead for some. Anyway they are perfect for parties, hand size, neat. You buy shaved ham, beef and turkey. You put lettuce on if you want and some cut cheese into triagles and put on. Also put real butter on on side of the bun inside of course. And have mustard and mayo packets on ice in case anyone wants that.
get a pinata that matches a theme if you choose a theme.
Put a certain number of candies in a pie plate, fill with cool whip or whip cream and guests have to hold their hands behind their back and find the candies to win a prize.
Buy poster of a cute actor or singer (get one of a girl and one of a boy if you are having a coed party). Anyway, put lipstick on the guest, blind fold them and then spin them a couple times and put them in front of the poster and they have to kiss it. Whoever comes the closest to the actor or singers mouth wins a prize. This can be funny, especially if boys come and they have to put on lipstick.

Army/Camouflage theme. Lots of decorations all over the place for this theme. Everyone dresses in costume.
Video games are like 50 bucks each if not more..If your looking for something different Nerf toys are great.. you"re never to old for those. Movie tickes are always cool with all the movies coming out as of recent. What about music cd's? I think my son was just getting into music at that age, also gift cards for music cd's are fun and resonable priced. Do they like to read? Gift cards for a local book store. My son wanted a camera at that age to. Then we took him out for the day and let him take pictures of stuff in the city. There are some good movies out on sale now to you could consider.
Not ALL 11 year old boys like to do the same thing. Heck, alot of times they don't even come close to liking the same things. If this is for your son, I'm sorry your relationship isn't better that you don't already know what he likes. If this is for your child's friend/classmate, you need to be asking your child what their friend/classmate's interest are.
My son just turned 11 and this is what was on his wish list this year... (I'm NOT saying he got them all!! LOL)
