Impossible to buy for, keeps asking for 18 rated xbox games like his friends have (never going to happen).

He is really into art, so any thoughts on what to get in that area? Or xbox games that are a bit like the tom clancy shit he wants but can't have?

I'm stumped. Budget of about 100£.

thanks smile

Is there any games he likes?

My 12 year old is one sees with halo ( yes it's a 16 but there's no gore or blood and not in any way realistic) he's getting all the halo films on DVD and a master chief theme Xbox one controller

They do mime craft and other theme controllers to
He's also getting a big bean bag for a gaming chair
Wireless gaming head phones
Extra storage for the Xbox

Also if he's intonart what kind of art. Manga? Some books and nice quality pencils pens?

For some reason an airbrush spring to mind - my Ds sounds similar but is too young as yet; at 13 I think he'd get a kick out of the tech / art crossover

I noticed 3D pens on Amazon - no idea whether they’re any good but they look like the sort of thing an arty teen might like.

Ds3 (11.5 but going on 18) is getting a graphics tablet to connect with his laptop. Also a sketch pad , charcoal and pencils and a book called 501 things to draw. He's very keen on art.

He mainly likes drawing cartoons, but he's now studying art and is branching out into faces and still life.

His friends all seem to play COD and the like while he plays minecraft and roblox with his younger siblings. He does have Halo as well. It's a difficult thing to manage and he won't suggest any games to me other that ones he isn't allowed!

Drawing tablet is a good idea. Anyone know if you can get a half decent one for not too much? There seems to be a vast array in ahuge price range....

Thank you.
