    Want to hear something that's really going to get you into the holiday spirit and make you believe in the magic of the season again? Well, it's impossible not to feel all warm and fuzzy after hearing about a 6-year-old boy who asked Santa for a prosthetic arm -- just so he can play the Xbox like the rest of the kids his age.

    Christopher Kiezek was born without part of his left arm, and while the disability hasn't really hindered him too much in life -- he isn't able to play video games. And if you have a child anywhere around his age, you know they're kind of all the rage right now.

    But sometimes there are gifts that are a little too tough for Santa to make in his toy shop, which is why a family friend of Christopher's stepped in to help.

    If you have a hard-core gadget geek in your life -- then you know all too well just how tough it can be to find good gifts for him at Christmas. (Or birthdays or any other occasion for that matter.)

    Not only are tech-savvy dudes hard to impress -- they also typically already have every gadget under the sun, so it's difficult to find new and exciting stuff.

    But you're in luck this year -- because I asked the biggest gadget geek EVER (my husband) what would be on his wish list this year as far as cool electronics go.

    Ahh ... Christmas. It's one of the few days out of the year where we get to sit back, relax, and enjoy quality time with our family -- usually beginning at a very early hour, I might add.

    And while most moms will probably agree that the holiday is more about our kids than anyone else -- we love finding something special under the tree on Christmas morning too.

    But to be honest, plenty of moms are totally over sweaters, jewelry, kitchen gadgets, and the like.

    If you haven't already picked up a little something to give your child's teacher for the holiday season -- you might want to make a note to go shopping sometime this week. We only have a few more days until they're out of school until after the new year -- and waiting until the last minute to put teacher gifts together is never fun!

    But what should we buy for the wonderful people who make such a difference in our child's lives? We want them to know how much we appreciate them -- but the idea of getting them something they aren't going to like is really, really stressful.
