Socks
Hair gel (if he uses)

Ds had this one year and loved it.
This was also a hit.
I buy tubs of chewing gum, a mug, stationery usually themed so football team/star wars/ game of thrones/ breaking bad, earphones are always useful.
Poundland had Nanoblocks last year that were selling for around a tenner in John Lewis.
