OK, someone tell me what to get a 13 year old boy for his bar mitzvah. He likes sports, and that's about all I know. (Soccer and swimming.) I don't want to just get him money, I'd rather get him an actual gift.

An Extreme Aqua-Driedel?

Swim shorts and a soccer ball!

I'm very original.

I would hope he already has those, as he's been swimming and soccering for a few years now. (Though you never know - maybe Orinda is one of those towns that allow naked swim teams.)

my first thought was "a subscription to Playboy!", but I'm sure you're looking for real suggestions here and not my smartassed ones.

So... binoculars? telescope? Xbox/Gamecube/Playstation2 game?

I say binoculars because he's 13 and probably just realizing girls are cute and binoculars will let him observe without being obvious about it... I'm thinking Then Again, Maybe Not or whatever Judy Blume book was the one about the boy with the hot girl who lived next door.

anyway, those are my suggestions :/

Something kind of scientific would be cool, or some gadget. Hmm.

How about the Chronicles of Narnia?

Or is that too on-the-nose?

I don't think it's too on-the-nose. But where will we find the right kind?
