Son hasn't really got anything on his list except a puppy and new tv which he's not getting either! He has perfecty good tv and we can't have a dog. So moving on give me some ideas please. He's a typical pre teen into football, PS4 and now getting into fashion, but I'm open to all suggestions!

I'm finding it difficult too. 13 year old. Does he have a favourite tv Show?? Mine likes the flash so I typed it in on amazon and have found loads of ideas and have a wish list a mile long now. Also into the walking dead. Then will be getting a ps4 game and some good name clothes and trainers. Then the usual chocolates and deodorant sets. How about a bike for the main gift??

Thanks! Unfortunately not a tv watcher. I really don't want to buy PS4 games or credits and the bike was last years birthday present. His birthday is just before Christmas too!! I think clothes and trainers is going to be the way to go.

Stocking fillers:

Showergel/deoderant/novelty soap etc
Sweets/chocolate/chocolate santa/festive confectionery.
Food he loves but you would not usually buy (coke/expensive cereal/nutella/pringles/cheesestrings etc)
Novelty Christmas hat or gloves or socks
Any toys he might still enjoy? (Water guns? Water bombs?)
Novelty item (eg cheap disco light, basket ball hoop laundry basket, novelty mug,)
Somethings inflatable and pointless (banana? Guitar? Fish?)

Mine is having a switch for his birthday on Halloween. So games for that and the Xbox. He likes Rick & Morty so merch such as calendar, mug, t shirts etc. Exploding kittens game and merch. Bears vs babies is a new game coming out. Posters for his room. Giant slinky.

What's a switch? Feeling so behind with things now! He's mentioned rick and morty!! Can someone enlighten me to exploding kittens and bears v babies.

Simpson, great ideas, cheap go pro thing would go down well I think!

Nintendo switch is the new console that you can take out with you or connect to a TV. Exploding kittens and bears vs babies are games by Oatmeal. We take exploding kittens out with us everywhere. My eldest ds14 loves it too. Bears vs babies is the new game by the same company.

Thanks l8toys, will look into those a bit more, by the sounds of it exploding kittens or bears v babies might be hits!
