Ideas for my 15yo Nephew?

I appreciate these sort of threads have be done to death but i need ideas/a bit of advice.

My brother has recently been made homeless and my nephew lives with him (its just the two of them). They are in a hostel type thing at the moment but that is only temporary and they will probably be moved to another hostel or a b and b before Christmas but this wont be permanent.

I really want to get my nephew a nice present but at the same time i want it to be something useful/usable and that can be easily transported. I picked him up a lego set (the Ghostbusters car) really cheaply a few months ago as i had some vouchers. I was going to give him this and get him something else as well but now I'm not sure wether it would be suitable or not as they will be moving a lot and i don't want to give something that will be difficult to move or will break.

Anyway, any other ideas would be great. He doesn't really do video games (doesn't have a consul) but does like art, superheroes, comics, movies (especially older films like the gremlins, ghostbuster, the goonies ect) and reading and budget is up to £50

Thank you.

What about a refurbished Nexus 7 for £59.99?

Rucksack.

Hat & gloves.

Football shirt, if he is into that sort of thing.

Cash.

Amaxon gave yobs of books about drawing/art etc - maybe one if those and some good quality art pencils/watercolours in a practical case if they are going to love a lot? His own duvet cover to make each place feel a bit more homely? Tbh my nearly 13 yo doesn't play with lego anymore as he's outgrown it. What about some trendy aftershave/shower gel/body spray and a designer t shirt - Hollister ones can be about £10 in reduced bit, then he'll feel more like his peers! A diary/notebook in case he feels the need to write down how he's feeling. Cinema tickets and vouchers for a pizza - sounds like that would be a treat for both of them.
