My best friends son is 9 and i need to get him a present. Unfortunately, he appears to be VERY hard to please. Every time I give him a present he always looks pretty dissapointed. It drives me mad! Last year, he even made a sarcastic comment about my present not being very big!!!
(his mother wasn't in room at time)

Any ideas? Maybe I should just give him the money but don't want my friend to think I haven't made an effort and he's only 9!!

Read title as, "Want to buy a 9 year old for less than a tenner" and came to offer sympathy for the crappy day you must be having
