Homemade and Creative Gift Ideas for 7-10 year olds

It used to be super easy to decide on gifts when we went to birthday parties. When the middle of our four sons was a toddler or a preschooler we could come up with lots of items that I made: playfoods, homemade play dough, or books we loved. It seems like it is getting more difficult lately. What do you make for a boy turning 7? What can I purchase that will make an 11 year old excited?

Now, I will be the first to admit that my children are rather eclectic and their tastes are much different than many of their peers, but I have found some successful ways to satisfy my desire to buy artisan-made products and also bring smiles to the older children.

These are some ideas and some cool stores I have found that carry products like them.
