What are you getting your 15 year old boy? - or 14, or 16, just roughly that age will do.

grin

mine wants gta and that's a big hell no from me
as are all the other totally inappropriate games he wants.
everything I am happy for him to have, he doesn't want.
I'm about two strops about the unfairness of life in general and me in particular away from lump of coal territory.

What do yours like or want?

I avoid buying PS4 games, as these cause arguments in our household.

This year DS (16) is getting:
Bowers and Wilkin headphones
A new hoody
Some sugru
New trainers
A polo shirt
A Fred Perry barrel bag

I still need to find:
A couple of books
Some chocolatey treats
A few stocking fillers

Last year we got him a gorgeous guitar (which is his pride and joy).

I think teenage boys are the hardest to buy presents for OP, so good luck!

Ha!
Ds 15 has requested GTA. Not a chance.
He's getting Adidas trainer/shoes
Fred Perry polo, hairdryer, jumper, aftershave , £100 in cash and a stocking.

I've got my 14yo nephew a really cute tiny remote control quadcopter. It really is dinky, has LED lights on, can fly inside or out. And Argos had it for �20 (reduced from �30, thus bringing it in budget). Can you tell I'm really pleased with this one smile

arlagirl Sun 07-Dec-14 08:17:10

Got that last year beehatch ...great fun. A big hit.

15 yr old ds, iPhone. That's it from us. Jack wills gym top, posters framed, Adidas gazelles. He said don't get me stuff I don't need just to open. Bless him. <grin>

I have a ten year old asking for 'Halo Reach' shock (He is absolutely not getting it!!) How do you get around the whole 'my best mate is allowed to play it'???? I feel like such a mean mummy but I see from your GTA experiences, I need to brace myself for this going on and on!!

Mines 15 and getting an Xbox one. He is paying half of it though. Then books, pyjamas, chocolate, smellies, Doritos,and a game for the Xbox. So hard to buy for, and his sister is so easy!

livvy DS is 15 on NYE, I've got to split the haul above and add some manga books and posh chocolate.

Livvylongpants Sun 07-Dec-14 09:01:42

He's saving for a laptop so family members are just giving him cash so will probably just give him some cash too. Though reading above cements my idea that he gets far too much but DP is having none of it

MeanwhileHighAboveTheField Sun 07-Dec-14 09:30:56

New "park" skis and boots from us.

Hoodie, boxers, a new bike wheel & tyres from Santa.

Fedupnagging Sun 07-Dec-14 09:50:04

I know exactly where you are coming from Vital. Ds3, 16, is a tad miffed I won't shell out for an iPhone contract at £25+ per month. I don't even have an iPhone!

Ds3 is getting
Topshop fishtail Parker
Topshop l/s top
Headphone/microphone thing for ps4
Calvin kleins
Deodorant/body spray/shower gel- FCUK
Calender
Chocolate
Hair putty

This is on top of a football season ticket for a premier league team that was a joint birthday/Xmas preset.

And he still thinks life is unfair fshock

Bonsoir Sun 07-Dec-14 09:54:49

Both DSSs (17 and 19) want contributions towards new iPhones. DSS1 has two iPhones to replace so I don't think he'll be getting anything else! DSS2 will get t-shirts (he likes very original ones, no brands).

Secondhand guitar, some kit he wants for cadets, headphones and books.

BestIsWest Sun 07-Dec-14 10:14:30
