Help me find a great puzzle-type gift for my aunt. A snowflake is falling.
My Aunt will be turing 52 next week. She has a learning disability - so for the sake of this question, let's pretend she is in the 11-15 age range.
She is really great at puzzles, patterns and brain teaser type things. She mentioned MindWare
in the past. I took a look at the site, but I don't know... there doesn't seem to be a lot for older kids. I haven't really found anything on there that pops out.
She will need something that she can do solo, since she is often alone or with my Grandmother.
Some things she likes:
-all kinds of "regular" and 3-D puzzles (I think she's probably getting bored with these)
-fill-ins/logic puzzle magazines/books
-arts & crafts
-those wooden/metal brain teaser puzzle things that you usually have to unlink somehow
My budget will need to be between $25-60. I usually give several small gifts instead of one big gift.
What do you think?
