What would a 14 year old boy like for Xmas?

Quite a young 14 (only just turned), who lives with rather strict grandparents (so any dvds/music etc would definitely need to be 'suitable' IYKWIM). His birthday is very near Christmas, so will do an amazon/itunes voucher for that, but would really like to do an unwrappable present for under the tree.

Any ideas, wonderful MNers? Someone's ds suggested a brio (? not sure of make, but think that was it) watch last year, and that definitely hit the spot!

Not books as gps buy him these in great quantity, and ideally not anything 'educational' as he gets very educated wink .

Has he got anything like an Xbox or playstation? Games for those go down well.

I was going to say a 14 year old girl....

But failing that, how about a game? I got DS (13) Monopoly city last year which he really liked. Or one of those sweet grabber things from Firebox. Also a nice wallet, a cool belt or t shirt (Superdry or SoulCal).

T-shirt sounds like the sort of thing - good to have suitable brands

What is a grabber from Firebox? (ignorant - have only an 8 y/o . . .)

grin at the 14 year old girl.

Jack Wills or Hollister or Abercrombie and Fitch or Superdry clothes.

Powerbalance wrist thing if he's sporty as that is what my DS has on his list.

Lynx/Ted Baker/FCUK smelly spray stuff which always goes down well (even though it smells vile teenage girls seem to flock towards boys wearing it)

Nice wallet - Superdry or the like

Candy grabber
Your 8 year old would like it too!

Takver Sun 07-Nov-10 12:51:35

Too right she would grin

OK, bear with me, but are we talking something like this then.

(Struggling to reconcile this with small, very nice but rather spotty & skinny young man who I mostly see in his school uniform . . .)

Maybe I'd better stick with the candy grabber wink

My DS (almost 14) hasn't discovered Superdry yet but he does like "cool" t shirts. I'm getting him one of these as one of his birthday presents:

Hmm, that looks good too. I think maybe I'm just slightly fazed by the models.

(I like the 'you are surrounded by armed bastards' one too - but perhaps not for young relative!!!)

I second Superdry - my DSSs (13 and 15) love Superdry!

Not sure why the link isn't working but it is

Men's clothing - then t shirts and its the melting guitars one.

webwiz Sun 07-Nov-10 16:28:11

yes Takver some of them are obviously aimed at the older teenager/adult!

If t shirts fit the bill, my 14 year old son loves this brand

If you are looking at Superdry - they have a fab ebay store where you can pick up their stuff as well as their sister brands like soulcal very cheaply.

Sounds like a t-shirt it should be - just need to find out his size now
