In desperate need of help!!
Struggling for idea for presents for two step sons, ages 14 & 10.
They have alot tbf, phone each, tablet each, playstation and sega in their room (that they don't play on) There's still presents from last year still under their bed never been out of the box - board games, jenga things like that so not buying that sort of thing again but I've no idea where to start! We don't like getting them clothes as that's what everyone else gets them.
14yo only really interested in his phone and football atm (he has about 10 footballs, just had new boots etc for birthday)
10yo likes snakes and lizards (NO!) did like pokemon, star wars but not sure if he still does now.
We like to buy them stuff they can use/play together and with us as well as individual gifts but my mind is just a blank this year.
Any ideas would be much appreciated!

I got my step son tickets to see the Harlem Globetrotters once (basketball team) that went down well...

Or maybe vouchers for cinema and Pizza Hut for the eldest so he can go out with friends?

Such a tough age.... I’ve got an 11 year old nephew and I think we’ll just be giving him money as whatever we buy for our budget (about £15) won’t be used/appreciated/compared to the gadgets and technology he has.

Activity experiences go down well. Also indoor skydiving went down well. We made it into a family treat for all of us!
