Really stuck on extra 'bits' for DSS, he'll be here Christmas morning so want plenty for him to open but struggling with useful/useable presents that he'll like! He likes football, NFL, cycling, gaming and is at 6th form, works part time in a shop and is starting to learn to drive. Already got, money, a cinema voucher, anti perspirant and chocolate, thanks so much smile

We did that with his mum for his birthday, Its more stocking fillers we're after, to bulk up his pile

Playing cards (when I was his age fifteen years ago we spent hours playing at college)

Agree with power bank for phone

- Stay Cool Ice Towel
- Emergency dry out bag for phones (very handy to have in case you ever drop it in water)
- Extra long USB charging cable, DSS loves these for when he needs to charge his phone and use it at the same time
- Bluetooth headphones

Marvel/Batman/Pokemon socks from Primark

Multitool keyring

Emergency phone charger (as others have said)

Party game like Exploding Kittens or Cards Against Humanity

Bottle opener


Mini can of Pringles


Gloves that work with touchscreen phones

Stationery - if he’s at college?

A mug? Truffle Shuffle have some cool gaming related mugs in at the moment:

They also have some NFL T-shirts:
