Fussy teenage boy!

Always struggled to buy gifts for my 14 year old and he’s getting more difficult the older he gets!!! He loves gaming, music, his phone, films, cycling and playing rugby. Oh and eating sweets grin.

Family are pestering that I need to add some bits on the amazon wish list for him. They aren’t keen on money or vouchers - he is a great saver so you don’t get to see what he’s bought himself.

It’s really not helped that he’s just had his birthday - new bike and cycling gloves. I can’t think of anything else

So, any ideas?! Those of you with teenage boys, what are you buying?!

We are the same here, I still don’t know what to get ds this year. He uses his bike a lot, but doesn’t want a new one yet. He plays footie, so maybe new boots, but that’s it!

His mobile will last another year, he has Xbox and doesn’t want anything else gaming right now, he has a tv, Bluetooth speaker for music, doesn’t want a tablet. It is really hard.

He too would prefer money so he could use it to buy new Xbox games when they are released during the year or to contribute to better footie boots when they need replaced.

Sorry, no help, but you are not alone!

From family I usually ask for branded clothes he likes such as north face/boss etc t-shirts which you can get for £18 upwards (hoodies etc if they are more generous).

Rugby shirt from his favourite team. I’m dreading the teenage years, my 5 year old currently wants the entire toys r us catalogue!
