DS is very laid back and basically won't say he wants anything. Present buying is made more difficult by the fact that his birthday is boxing day, so we need double the number of ideas. He's quite geeky but does also go out a lot with friends (cinema, bowling etc, we are getting some vouchers for this). Any thoughts? Please help!
I’ve got my ds 17 a few bits this year. I agree it’s a hard age to buy for. My ds is now driving so we can’t gift him driving lessons. I got him Some clothing, socks, a VR headset, decent quality beard trimmer ( he has a full beard that he struggles to shave) Chocolate
He wanted the new Xbox but it’s very expensive and he has enough cash to buy that himself.
Wireless headphones money toiletries clothes vouchers for game store character slippers t shirts nice chocolates and sweets that’s what my 13 yr old is having. He wants an iMac laptop but I can’t afford it this year
What are his interests? By late teens most boys are clearly either sporty or musicians or computer/gaming geeks.
My DTeens are easy as they're music obsessed so it's always guitars/guitar pedals/synthesizers/ gig tickets etc. Does he have a similar hobby?
I'd get: Tickets for Reading Festival/live gigs of his favourite bands/Band tee shirts or Tickets to his favourite sporting event/new sports gear or New games/Gaming gear/phone/laptop/drone if he's a tech geek
Does he have a favourite clothes shop? Vouchers for there, or ask one of his friends if there's a coat or jacket he has his eye on.
Good trainers or walking boots?
If he goes bowling a lot - how about his own bowling shoes?
