Hi all

Im looking for some ideas on what i can buy a 9/10 year old boy to try and even up the size of their xmas present piles. His sister has a 4 foot teddy and a new large tv so im worried it will look like he hasnt got much compared to her. Any ideas welcome!

@howmanysleepsnow thanks some fab ideas there!

@salmoneile he has only asked for an xbox game, money and wwe belt. Ive bought him other bits like books, clothes, lego etc but need something bigger to bulk out his pile a bit...

Ooh, if money is in there blow up a balloon or 2 and roll notes up to put inside. Wrap the balloon(s). He has to pop them to get the money.

Just googled wwe gifts. Road to wrestle mania board game came up, as did a giant foam hand. Any good?

If its the pile size then he is older enough to understand that somethings are bigger than others.

We always mix the presents up so there's no piles to compare

@howmanysleepsnow thanks so much, great ideas!!

We tend to separate their piles so they have room to sit and open them.

He would understand if we had bought him something small and expensive but we havent! Lol. Theres a big difference in size and value at the moment.

Goal if he likes football
Musical instrument
Beanbag, my son loves play the switch on his and came in a very big box. Got ours from beanbag bazaar. Very popular with visiting friends too as it’s big enough for two. Just need to have room to store it.
Print for his room.
Gravitrax vertical if he likes marble run, comes in fairly big box.
