Sometimes, Santa wants one gift that will make all three of my kids happy. Since my firstborn is 13, her younger sister is 9 and their baby brother is 5, this is no easy feat. But it's also not impossible. I look for toys and games with objectives that are not overly specific but offer challenges at varying levels. For practical items, it's a relief to get everyone the same thing. I mean, Santa can only do so much list-making, you know?
