Too many shoes, not enought feet

I'm addicted to shoes - and no matter what I buy, I always want more. I love having the perfect shoe to complete an outfit. My tastes run the gamut from designer heels to cool sneakers. I am always planning my next shoe purchase - and then I have to work out where to keep them all. It's not as easy as it sounds, my whole wardrobe is quite packed. My family is bored with hearing about by shoes, and I know I'm not the only one like this so I made blog to share my shoes obsession with the world!

Five Great Gifts for Boys Ages 11 to 14


Finding a gift for an older child or young teen male can be difficult. These youngsters don't really identify as kids anymore, but they may not want adult things either. Want the perfect gift for a boy in the 11 to 14 year-old category? Then check out these ideas:

1. AFL Jersey

Let the youngster you know show their Australian Football League spirit with a jersey. You can buy AFL jerseys representing any team, and if you don't want to buy a jersey, you can buy hoodies, shorts, leisure suits, hats and accessories.

Buy the kid on your list a bunch of AFL gear, or just buy one item at the price you feel comfortable with. If you want to make it more exciting, pair the jersey with some tickets to an AFL game.

2. A Night on the Town

Kids of all ages love experiences, and so too will the boy-man on your gift list. Buy him gift certificates to the movie theater or passes to the local pool. Alternatively, give him a few rolls of coins to take to the classic video game arcade.

3. Anything electronic

Kids of this age group typically love electronics. Video games, consoles, tablets, gaming headsets and other electronics are all perfect. If you want to give a gift to a video game lover but don't want to encourage extra screen time, give a gift that corresponds to a video game.

For example, if you know the male likes playing football-based video games, give him a football jersey. If he likes racing games, buy him tickets to a race track.

4. Pocket Knife

Kids in this age group love gifts that emphasise their maturity. A pocket knife isn't a "kid" gift, making it ideal for someone who is aching to be treated less like a youngster.

If the boy on your gift list loves hunting or camping, a pocket knife is essential. Look for a multi-purpose knife that can do anything from opening cans, to slicing an apple, to whittling a stick. If you think his parents wouldn't approve of a knife, give him other survival items such as a flint and steel to start fires, or a compass.

5. Cash

When all else fails, kids in this age category love cash. That way, they can buy whatever they want. Of course, you can pair cash with any of the ideas listed above.
