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.

Have a look at Philosophy Football (please google, I can't link!). Very original and not strictly football related

Our redbubble came really quickly, I'd chase them up starball

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.

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.

Gah - clickable links:
It's tough to buy Geeks something they haven't got but I buy a lot of tees from and - both have previous designs available.

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... : (

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

BearPear Mon 09-Dec-13 21:58:55

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

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)

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.

Oops sorry finger slipped
truffleshuffle is worth a look

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!

Anything from Forbidden Planet!

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

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

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