Mumsnetters I need your help. I am struggling to think of ideas - and battling whether the console option is a good one or not. What have you been getting your boys of this age? Big and small present ideas all welcome!

Star Wars and Lego city space Lego are going to be ds9's main presents.
We don't have consoles and we are not going to get any. However we just got a new laptop and he gets a mine craft game. That's going to be his first game.

Other things he gets are Star Wars book, Star Wars aquabeads, Star Wars water bottle, Star Wars T-shirt and pyjamas. I think he is getting loads of Star Wars :D He is huge fan of it though.
