DD has plenty of personal keepsakes that we've given her over the years - this year I'd really like to get something for DS 10. Nothing schmaltzy but showing how special he is to us - a personal thing just for him. Something he can keep and look at over the years. I'm a bit stumped. DD has a few bits of jewellery but def not the thing for a boy!

Any ideas welcomed

It's very niche but DS(11) has a handmade leather belt with his first shotgun cartridge shells stuck on (riveted or something, it looks better than I made it sound grin)

Difficult with boys, though I know DS is bizarrely very fond of watches. Perhaps something like that that you could get engraved?

crikey Libid - the belt sounds very 'specialist' grin. A watch would be a good idea but he already has one from PiL.

A leather backgammon set. A decent one will last him a lifetime!

Or a chess set.

A really fab snow globe? I know it doesn't sound very boyish but my Grandad had one he'd got as a boy one Christmas and it was genuinely the only material 'thing' he was remotely bothered about. My Gaga loved decorating and their house was full to the brim of bits and bobs, but Grandad always said if he ended up on his own he'd just keep a comfy chair, a bed, his telly and his snowglobe.
