I really need your help with a main present idea for my ten year old stepson. Myself and DH have literally no idea what to go him for Christmas. He has absolutally everything his little heart could desire (he asks and his mum buys!) and we are officially stumped!

We have a budget of £80 for his main present and between us and grandparents we have covered most stuff he is after (within our budget) However, he just doesn't want/need anything big as he has a bike/bmx/laptop/phone/xbox/tablet/tv at his Mum's... you get my drift that he's got it all shock

Please help us find something suitablly cool for him as we are stumped!!!

Odometer for bike

Electronic drum machine
Quality microscope

these are just some of the things my 9 year old had his eye on!

The latest nerf gun ?

There is one with a built in camera now I think.

We have to buy for a similar aged boy who has everything.
I am looking at an experience rather than object iyswim. Go Ape, Segways, something like that?

Stunt scooter
Skateboard
Roller skates

Here's where I spotted a cheap one but I'm sure it's a case of you get what you pay for and it depends whether you want a novelty present or a more serious one for a young person who does mountain biking etc

Helpfully they are out of stock at the entertainer now but they also had this one on the works website.

cheap ish action cam

Rushing to get kids out or I would have been more helpful!

Our 10yo DS doesn't want a main present either.

He wants
Case for his tablet
Orthello board game
Xbox games (things like Shaun White, Forza - between £8 and £20)
Chocolate
Remote control rollercopter
A football with club emblem on
Slippers!

Am watching with interest.
