What would you buy them for around £20-£25?

It's a present for a guy who babysits ds4 and dd on occasion, he's 21 and he's our neighbours son. All we really know is he likes DR Who, Star Trek and Metal (I think he's into drumming).

I'd like to spend around a tenner each and get him 2 small presents but will go up to £25 for one or two good things.

I don't want to buy him DVDs as I think he has lots and I wouldn't know which ones he has or doesn't have.

Help! My boys were all into football and Lego so I'm really stuck.

A 'teach yourself Klingon course', a box set of TBBT (though he may already have got it) or Browse the Firbidden Planet website for ideas (Jedi warrior bath robe?)

Just popped in to remind pp that Jedi is in Star Wars, not in Star Trek.
I've been informed they are not the same thing.. wink

Or did i mix them up myself again? blush

scaevola Mon 09-Dec-13 18:52:57

blush

For some utterly misplaced reason, now I check, I thought it said Star Wars in title. So sorry.

No, Elovena, you're right and it was my mistake.

Anything from Forbidden Planet!

I'll be buying DP a model kit of the Enterprise from the reboot films.

check out phoenix copper art on facebook. He makes gorgeous engraved copper books and has a few dr who ones. I commissioned a notebook with the Greyjoy crest from Game of Thrones for my husband last year and he also made our wedding guest book!

Is he by any chance secretly into baking? Lakeland have some great Doctor Who stuff.

Actually just checked and they also have a TARDIS teapot and cookie jar and various mugs.

My DH loves Star Trek, Deep Space 9, Serenity, (but not Star Wars)

DS has by osmosis inherited the love grin

We bought DS a couple of Big Bang Theory T Shirts. (Not the same thing, but he might be into that)

My son is 21 and a massive Dr Who nut. One of his gifts is a t-shirt with the graphic "University of Gallifrey". I think I got it from Play.com

I am getting DD her first Monopoly but it will be a Dr Who one

ZoeZoeZoe Mon 09-Dec-13 22:48:01

sorry, no helpful suggestions as such, just a slight application of the brakes if he is such a big fan that you don't get him something he already likely will have... : (

Redbubble have great different tshirts for all geeks fans. Dd has several from Arctic monkeys to hunger games.

Hohohowhatfuckeryitis Mon 09-Dec-13 22:56:27

Oh and obviously dr ones.

JennySense Mon 09-Dec-13 23:55:21

It's tough to buy Geeks something they haven't got but I buy a lot of tees from http://www.teefury.com and http://www.qwertee.com - both have previous designs available.

Gah - clickable links:

Redbubble send from the USA and are very slow, I'm still waiting for three t-shirts, ordered ages ago.

two Dr Who and a Calvin and Hobbes.

Which gives me an idea I wonder if he's ever seen revenge of the baby sat

The snow goons one is brilliant too.

Thanks. I've been looking through all of these. I suppose its a bit like trying to sell chewing gum to a toothless man, I really as in REALLY struggle to see the appeal of these things. DH and the DC are no better.

I think I may try and wheedle some information out of him before making a decision.
