Wondering if anyone has any ideas for present ideas for my 9 year old at all, I’m desperate!
His birthday is near Christmas and I’m taking him away for that so that’s sorted but I need some actual presents for Christmas.....
He doesn’t use or like any technology or games, the tablet and kindle he was bought have not been used and ended up being given away. He loves books but we have hundreds, is home ed so we have tons of arty stuff, go to London regularly so trips there aren’t anything different, did afternoon tea out last year, Lego he used to love but it hasn’t really been played with the last year, other toys are no go.
He loves History, dinosaurs, is very smart (special provision smart) museums and traveling......
Any suggestions most welcome TIA

National geographic junior or even the regular magazine.
Dose he like animals? An experience day at a zoo.
Traditional model kit. Maybe some world war style airplanes or vintage car style ones.

Thanks everyone, unfortunately he already has Magazine subscriptions and has flown birds at the zoo....the model kits might be a idea though thanks I’ll have a look.
