ds will be 11 on Thursday. He has asked for pokemon cards and a nerf gun which i have bought. But its literally two presents. I have zero ideas what to get him and he doesn't know either. its really stressing me out.

he likes

his xbox
minecraft
mathematics
NASA
pokemon
he doesn't really do anything other than his xbox/phone! he's very smart and loves things like maths/testing himself.

i was thinking lego but no idea what sort!

help please

I honestly don't understand this post.
He has asked for two things, you've got them.
Job done.

T shirt with any of his interests on?

I have the same issue for DD who is a little younger but likes the exact same things.

In the last few months, We got her a gaming mouse that lights up and looks cool. From b n m. With a headset and a gaming laptop.

We have bought her a fair amount of shit recently so haven't got anything to get her fir her birthday. Following with interest.

The new Xbox/PlayStation comes out soon. Could you say you've preordered? Joint birthday and Christmas?

If that’s what he asked for, I’m sure he’ll be pleased with anything else you get. At that age my DS would have liked-
- A gaming headset
- A hoodie- you can get NASA ones
- Lego k’nex- standard ones or Education ones
- If he likes maths, here are maths puzzle books, brain teasers or a box set like ‘Murderous Maths’

Gaming keyboard, gaming mouse, minecraft annuals/books, Rubik's cube, beginners guitar and lessons, electronics set, science kits.

If you fancy going a bit old school, Exploding kittens is quite a fun card game.

Asda have NASA bedding which my DS12 likes

Turing tumble if he loves maths.

Has he got a rubix cube?
Puzzle ninja book or What If? Book.
A maths inspired t shirt?
A new skin for his xbob controller or a headset for his xbox?

Cool clothes? If he likes lego and nasa maybe a lego spacecraft.

Couple of hoodies based on his interests?

Activity day? Driving experience?

Gohenry card with money on it, can use the app on his phone and you have more oversight to monitor expenditure than a normal bank account.

H&M have some good Nasa bits at the moment, we've ordered DS2 a hoodie and the hi-tops for Christmas

BearSoFair Sat 26-Sep-20 14:10:01

And Happy Birthday to him for Thursday, DS2 is 11 on Tuesday so very close!

We got DD a gamer chair in the end. Not sure if that helps. An xrocker thing with speakers and a sub in it.

How about a Lego spaceship? My day, who’s 10 likes the same kind of things. Two recent bday presents he loved were a pair of Minecraft pyjamas and the game Mastermind (the one with the coloured pegs) we’ve all enjoyed playing that- and a fab memory from my childhood! Or Yahtzee was a recent hit too!
