A Personalized Christmas - Complication: I want to shop from my butt.

It is my niece's very first Christmas this year, and I want to use her image and make personalized gifts for everyone: Mugs, Shirts, Calendars, phone cases, etc. I've used Walmart to make personalized mugs, but they were expensive and really annoying to order from (I'm ordering from Ontario, Canada). Can anyone recommend a reputable personalized-gift website that can take orders online? It would be great if they had a wide variety of items to personalize. Thanks in advance!!!

Gift for 13-year-old Boy

What can I buy my 13-year-old nephew for $15-20 that doesn't suck? He's into computer games, magic the gathering, ps/2 and isn't all that athletic. He's a little sheltered, and when I asked him if he wanted a throwing star or a bb gun, he replied, "you had better check with my mother about that."
