Ds is 12 soon and im struggling to find things to get him for Christmas. I have his main gift. That was easy. So far i have also got

2 ps3 games
Hollister hoodie
Pjs and slippers
2 board games
Books (hunger games)

Now im stuck. The only things I can think of are possibly

New ps3 headset
Speakers for laptop (main gift)

Any other suggestions?

He doesnt really like lego or similar. And paper jams were not a huge hit last year.

i need a minecraft t-shirt but for a small 10yr old, i can find loads of mens sizes (saddos)

I've not head him mention minecraft so no idea where to start with that stuff.

He did ask for a scooter back in the summer but the one he liked was £300 shock didnt look any different to thr cheapo asda ones imo. His dad is supposed to be getting him one now anyway.

tilly Im a seasoned hollister shopper these days. I've got him a tshirt and sweatshirt from there for his birthday in a few weeks.

Projection alarm clock is exactly what im looking for. Will check out amazon for one.

this afternoon i have ordered him a couple of pre-owned games and a few laptop accessories.

Just his stocking to do and then I need to finish his sister confused

omg omg, I love this thread. So glad I posted something, loads of stocking stuffer ideas MCraft on Ebay. <<gleeful>>

Scooters are okay here until you're too big for them, really.

I have 11 & 12 year old boys so I feel the pain.

12 year old wants an Architect drawing board and A2 paper - special peb=ncils set squares etc. Well, he actually wants a new gaming PC at 1000 pound so this is 2nd choice! He is also wanting a graphics tablet, gaming mouse/keyboard, some PC games, Guinness Book of record/Ripleys, A onesie, some DVDs, I picked him up a Devid Beckham shower gel and spray set. He has some other books he wants too. He is also getting an upgrade to his little pen-knife of a proper Scouts knife.

No 2 son wants a PS Vita and games, some manga and anime books as well as some art stuff and books and a onesie - he is getting a multi tool pen knife for scouts too.

They both like some Lord of the Rings Lego Stuff

No 1 son got a Superdry wallet for his birthday that might go down well and they both got Minecraft Mouse mats last year
