Hi I have 2boy/1 girl trips, one of my boys cannot think of anything he wants except an x-box, which he is getting with his brother! Any ideas please for a 13yr old who has no interest in music, clothes, art etc!!

A fun book - I've got DS (14 next week) this one www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1847945864/ref=pd_lpo_ k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=103612307&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-strip e&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=1847945856&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5 A1OLE&pf_rd_r=01D7P0AZV3PMQB8Q52K7

He'll also get a DVD - I think "the A Team" is out and an x box game.

What's the budget? Maybe digital camera or video camera (Flip ones are good)? Or gift certificate for some kind of 'experience' - Go Ape, paintballing with a friend, quadbiking day, cookery course or something.

Those small radio controlled helicopters are great fun. DS started with a £15/£20 debenhams gadget, moved to a £50 Macro model and is now contributing to a very expensive "proper" helicopter and has been practising on a decent simulator for months to try & minimise expensive mistakes

The Cherub series of books is also good for younger teen boys.

I think my son was 13 and equally difficult to shop for when we got him these. He loved them for a couple of years. Very much up to individual children and their/their friends' stage of development whether they find them entertaining though.

I got my nephew a coffee shop voucher as he is quite into meeting his friends in town. He is 13.

Thank you all............the tanks look good Duchess will google them, he would like something like that. Ipod is not him as he hates all things musical, James his brother is hoping for one but I am having trouble finding a bargain as they already have over £300 worth of new xbox stuff between them. I don`t like the new nano size wise as he will lose it so easily, the 5th generation pod looks nice but it is around £150!!He just isn`t into clothes, he does like Lynx, not interested in photography/art.......he`s just gaming mad!
