My Ds has just turned 10 and had a football kit and football boots for his birthday as well as a couple of playstation games and monopoly. I think we're getting him a table football table for Christmas (bit of a theme...)

So far he is getting football kits, football boots, trainers, clothes, Xbox games and a couple of board games & books but can't think of anything else at all.

DS1 is almost 10.

He's getting (from us and family!):
Star Wars Lego (millennium falcon)
Box set of 13 storey treehouse books
Quixels (plastic cubes that stick together with water)
Lego ninjago spinner
Star Wars Lego (naboo fighter)
Amazon tokens
Santa will bring chocolate, some skylanders figures, clothes, pavement chalk, wooden puzzle, more chocolate, travel game and more chocolate.

DS2 (8, birthday next week) similar, except he's getting ninjago Lego instead of Star Wars. We're also getting him a new set of cymbals for his drum kit for his birthday.

Mine is 8 and I'm not sure! We're doing this four present thing. I think his big present may be an iPod touch but DH isn't onside yet.

Marking my place for ideas! Especially stocking stuffers.

DS1 is 11 next week; for 'main' presents from us he's getting a football goal for the garden (b'day) and a basic iPod dock/speakers for Christmas. He has asked for the former, but the latter will be a surprise. He's also getting (from siblings/Father Christmas, in whom he still claims to believe hmm):

football game he saw advertised on the back of Match of the Day magazine (looks a bit crap but he'll be delighted with it)
box set of Alex Rider books
Calvin & Hobbes book
huge puzzle book
Darth Vader cereal bowl
small Nike sports bag
Nike base layer for winter football practice
head torch (I think he will love this more than all of the above!)

One gm is getting him a Liverpool football top, the other is getting him a onesie.

He's getting really hard to buy for these days!

DS2 is getting

Samsung tablet
Lego train set
Brian toy from
Wii u and 3DS games

And that is where I draw a blank

ArtfulPuss Thu 26-Nov-15 18:05:22

What's your DS into OP? Does he have the patience to sit and make stuff? (Mine doesn't, I wish he did!) If so, how about Airfix or Meccano?
If he's outdoorsy/active, would he like a skateboard or (if you live anywhere near the sea) a bodyboard? A simple camera? We got DS1 one for his 10th birthday, cost about £50 and he's had hours of fun with it.

My 9 year old is getting a pair of Heelys trainers for his main present this year (thanks to a suggestion on this very board! grin ),
A Minions onesie and slippers (XS mens technically, from Primark grin and only £19 for both) - it will be a bit big but he's tall for his age and it will last him longer. Usually as soon as he gets a really favourite piece of clothing he hits a growth spurt and it only fits him for a week confused but this should last him a while...
Barcelona goal keeper gloves for football.
Minecraft plushies (dirt cheap on eBay grin )
Box set of Marvel Heroes books and a Minions "Bananas" annual type book (just ordered a few mins ago from the Book People in their Black Friday promotion grin )
A Robofish
Several dinosaur crafty kit things - excavating a skeleton, hatching one from a volcano, and one to make a model.
Bits and bobs of craft stuff - pencils and stickers and such like.
