what do 10 year old boys like just now? I am struggling I have 3 dds and dd2 wants me to buy her boyfriend.... yes I know at this age a christmas present, he his mum has bought dd jewellery and make up set.

I am really struggling boys this age are alien to me and I am not going down the £85 nike air max route dd2 suggested... wtf £85 for a 10 year old bf... my reply was merely this >shock hmm NO

so something reasonably cheap that will go down well?

No way I wouldn't let dd16 spend that ammount on her boyfriend.

At that age I bought my boyfriend and action man and soap on a rope smile

What about Lynx set?

what about a hexbug fish or nanobug set?

I know she has no chance in hell!!

that sounds good, I am oblivious to what's in for boys.

dh thinks a selection box is adequate... dd has uninvolved him from the gift choices now grin

10 year old boys are a bit like 10 year old girls in that they will be into particular things and will vary in maturity enormously. However, suggestions are:

Something to do with football or whatever other sport he likes,
Minecraft stuff?
A "designer" or sports branded wallet
snap back hat or whatever it is they are called
Super dry beanie hat
Nerf gun

My 10 year old and is friends are really into Finger whips ATM.

Failing that, Lego minecraft is £30 and an ideal present for a 10 year old.

thanks will need to Google some suggestions as I have no idea what they are... confused

the finger whips look fab dd1 would love them, will show dd2 them.

Sorry just realised this is not for your own child, so options 1 and 2 are too expensive obviously.

Speaker for his phone? Some sort of dock?

I've got my 10yr old nephew a nerf gun but now worried it's too babyish. Hope not.

Nerf gun will be fine, my boys are 13 and 12 and still have nerf wars from time to time. I'd say 9 to 11 was probably their peak nerf age when Christmas day usually involved a family nerf battle. I never did make it upstairs to capture their base. Guess I never will now sad

some Minecraft goodies from The Entertainer, any of these should go down a treat.
