My daughter is obsessed with getting a beauty advent calendar this year, that's easy...my son on the other hand not so easy!
He's 15 and whilst I can get him something extra for the actual day it seems mean his sister getting something every day in December so if at all possible i'd love to get him a nice one as well.
Lego is a no go
Obviously the alcohol ones are a no go!

I found a next one for men but lots of the products are beard related, and bless him he's not blessed in that department.

Has anyone found a 24 day advent calendar for teenage boys?!

When we do one we fill our own. Last year he barely remembered to open his chocolate one from his Nanna and we felt a bit sad. I will be following as it's great to find little stuff he likes but it's now bloody hard!

Maybe a Haynes manual one? Build your own radio or electronic games.

A pringles one? Tbh my 2 like the expensive lindt chocolate ones.

Thanks for all the recommendations, I was going towards the pringles or pork scratching ones.
He said he doesn't like pork scratchings (gave him a bag to try!) then when I directed him towards pringles also said he doesn't like most the flavours :/
However, by that point he realised what I was after and asked me for a nerds or millions one (millions one bought from b&m this weekend!)

Last year I got my son a posh marshmallow one with a little burner thing so you can 'cook' your marshmallow. He loved it!

Great for foodie, sweet-tooth, non-pyromaniacs!!!
