Ok so I'm really stuck for Christmas presents for my 13 year old. Ideas anyone??

I am looking for a ‘wow’ present for my DS and struggling! But little ideas include:
Gaming headset
Touchscreen gloves
Hornby stuff
Books
Exploding kittens
Slippers
Not very exciting I know!

I'm stuck too - can think of little things but not a big gift.

So far, I have:
band t shirts
books
American sweets hamper
more bloody x box games
another bloody x box controller
tickets for a show/event (but he knows about this one)
hoody from TV show he likes

None of it is amazing sad.

Agree virtual reality headset - DS tried one in the US on holiday and really wants one.

My 13yo is getting

Xbox game
Nike hi tops
Superdry sport jacket and holdall (all in the sale!)
Mini projector
Hype sweat shirt
New hockey boots and club top (although he already opened that as it was delivered to school)
my old Iphone 6 wrapped back up in it's box. This will be his favourite thing.

Also some little stocking fillers.

13yo DS is getting a bird of prey experience day as his main present. He couldn't think of anything he wanted except 'surprises', so that was helpful fhmm... From siblings he's getting a (cheap) digital weather station thing and a wildlife photography book.

Bonfires we gave him DH's old iPhone 6 reconditioned and back in its box for his birthday, and his reaction was priceless - he just stared at it with his mouth open for ages + is still saying weeks later that he can't believe it, best present ever, etc. Hope your DS is equally delighted!

Thanks artful, I suspect he will have the same reaction, he’s been desperate for it but he thinks I traded it in for my new phone. 😄

The bird of prey experience sounds amazing! I’d like to do that!
