I recommend it all the time to everyone who's looking for something out of the ordinary and intelligent for kiddos –it's US-based, so the links tend to take you to US sites, but you can usually find the gifts themselves in the UK too.

It's the The Kid Should See This Gift Guide , created by the makers of The Kid Should See This, which is also very cool.

Categories at the top, or you can just scroll and look at everything. Seems a little book-heavy right now, but it's often updated.

It's a tumblr, so you have to keep scrolling down and it sometimes takes a second to load, but it's also Freaking Awesome for inspiration or just a good browse.

I find myself linking to it all the blimmin' time, so I thought I'd stick it in its own thread and be done wiht it grin

Should say - I'm not affiliated with it at all – I just love it and wanted to share!

Thank you! I've just ordered a fab looking game from here. Never heard of them before, but it looks quite cool!

I saw this site linked on here the other day and spent ages browsing. There are some great gift ideas. If it was you, thanks!

This is an absolutely brilliant list thank you!

It's a lovely collection, right?

Really thoughtful, and so many things I've never seen anywhere else.

The 'Grown Ups' category has loads of stuff I'm eyeing for myself, too!

Thanks @ladybee28!!! That’s stocking fillers sorted, which is great because I had been at a total loss as to what to get.

I could have spent all day scrolling. List at least half done now and will forward the link to DB and DBIL for their broods, it will be right up their street.

Honestly, dead chuffed, my wee geek is going to love some of this stuff. He has a birthday in December so we need loads of ideas.

@Namechangeforthis88 your post has made me really happy –so glad to hear this is up your little guy's alley!

Brilliant thank you. I was struggling for ideas. Some of these books look interesting enough to read myself!

Thanks so much for this, I've had such a lovely time looking through! My very hard to buy son who's ten in December will be sorted with much more thoughtful original gifts than I would otherwise have found!

I'm being daft but how do you find the grown ups section?

@EwDavid it's one of the items in the categories list at the top...

Here, I've attached a screenshot. Red circled bit on the right.
