Possibly board games? DVDs? Boxed sets?

Plays tennis and swims .

Avid reader but getting lots of books - doesn't want a kindle.

Likes Star wars Dr Who Roblox -not into football

Likes music -Foo fighters Green day

So far Santa's cupboard contains a load of books and a tennis racquet!!

He has a bike ipad and laptop - so no major stuff needed....doesn't have a TV in his bedroom so thinking maybe a smart tv?

Ideas big and small gratefully received.

I'm getting 12 y/o DD the Keri Smith Pocket Scavenger and Everything is connected postcards. Obviously they're books but at least different! (I was actually wondering just now about them as a present for a 12 y/o boy, they're not 'girly' I don't think.)

I've also got her a themed hoodie from Redbubble - I've seen some good Dr Who themed ones around if he'd like something like that.

Definitely agree board games are good if he likes them. If he's a sci fi fan then he might like Galaxy trucker

If you are after games, this is amazing:

You have to build a spacecraft and fly it, but it obeys the real laws of engineering and physics (so they learn proper terminology as they go). Kept mine busy...
