Hi, I need several gifts for 8-9yo boys (birthday parties season) and looking for current bargains, budget under. Somehow my imagination doesn't stretch behind Lego and there isn't much in this price range. I already have some books purchased.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

We discovered IQ XOXO yesterday which is on my list for the whole family to play together. Very easy puzzles to start with, but you can skip up to more difficult ones quickly if you get the hang of it.

It was my 7 year olds part last month so some might be a bit young but some of the things his friends bought were:
-Fidget spinners
-Power ranger action figures
-Pop Vinyls
-Tech decks
-Hot wheels
-Super hero capes
-Little live pets
-WWE figures
And obviously Lego!

How about a light box? You can buy them in the works for £8

Legos are the best and other educational board games as well. Amazon or ebay offers a lot of good deals by the way.

I've just bought a few of these for Christmas as I have several boys in that age range in my family

Usborne do a book 100 paper planes to fold and fly. It's currently £4.50 on Amazon and makes a nice present. You could buy some top trumps to go with it. Or how about the Where's the Wookiee book which is currently 3 for £10 on Amazon

Links are below if they work

I bought a remote control Lamborghini from the entertainer yesterday for an 8tg birthday party. It was £10.

This is the Porsche online. The Lamborghini is black. Ds is 7 and he chose it for his friend
