Help! I need a gift for a "broody" 15 year old. He apparently likes Americana and things that you keep wrapped in their packaging. I am at a loss. It needs to be around £15-20 and be ordered from Amazon. Any ideas??

Oh broody as in teenager rather than wanting a baby

By "things that you keep wrapped in their packaging" I mean the type of collector's items you put on display fully wrapped.

What do you mean by broody? Only meaning I know is wanting a baby

Josie314 Tue 16-Dec-14 22:28:00

Lol- yes he doesn't want a baby! That was bad wording, but it is how my MIL described him to me when I asked for her help. She then said if she had an idea, she would have bought it herself.

I think it means: philosophical, deep, thoughtful, quiet etc

Maybe : music, clothes, books?

Brooding rather than broody grin Some Star Trek memorabilia?

Nirvana cd (prob showing my age)
£20 note - then he can brood slightly richer

I think you mean brooding? Rather than broody! Cos I think that just means wanting a baby. I think you need more info as to what he collects?

a portable speaker

a cover for ipad/phone etc if you can find out what he has by way of gadgets

metal wall poster
similar

a copy of On the Road and a Marlon Brando film

Yes, 'brooding', not broody, thank goodness grin

Some Steampunk stuff? T-shirt?

A my little pony

A my littl pony might just get through in the irony stakes
And it could be displayed in its box
But not the ever irritating pinkie pie

PacificDogwood Tue 16-Dec-14 22:39:33

Amazon has some cufflinks and 'Victorian' goggles

PacificDogwood Tue 16-Dec-14 22:39:58

My Little Pony is inspired grin

Good lord, i was expecting a much more depressing thread about a teenager desperate to join the statistics.
Get him Withnail and I, just the thing for 15yr old boy or a piece of art. americana is easy just get a broody james dean poster.

CheeseBuster Tue 16-Dec-14 22:41:43

Does he write, a nice leather bound journal maybe?

traviata Tue 16-Dec-14 22:43:16

yes to Withnail & I.

OhHolyChildOfGallifrey Tue 16-Dec-14 22:52:51

Would he be interested in Pop Vinyl figures? They're collectible and according to DS you absolutely cannot play with them... They are for looking at hmm

www.funko-pop-vinyl.co.uk

That's the original site but I have seen them on Forbidden Planet and Amazon

DD20 has bought DS17 a condom shaped memory stick thingy!!!! I hope it's the only sort of one he needs to use!!

Josie314 Wed 17-Dec-14 03:51:39

Thanks for all the suggestions - really useful! Hopefully I'll be able to pull together something he will find acceptable. :-)

My 13yo DS has a pinkie pie and is getting an mlp t shirt for Christmas. The website thinkgeek has a ton of all sorts of stuff... And 15yo dd has just been given tix for comic con. DS is going to be beside himself.
