Anybody got any good ideas as to what to buy a 12 year old boy. Trying to not buy anything gaming related!

Does he have any hobbies or play any sports?

How about a magazine subscription to a gaming mag?

Is it for a birthday or something to do?
If it's birthday then I think you buy them what they would like, even if it's gaming because that's what they enjoy.
If it's just because Or something to do then speak them about what type of things they might enjoy.

Gaming merch? It was my DS’s 13th birthday last week and he was given a Zelda book which he thought was great.

How about something to eat, something to wear, something to play and something to read?

A mini pool table? Football? Basketball net? Boxing gloves and punch bag? Football kit? Trainers? Air pods? (Amazon do a cheap version look exactly same as Apple ones work great my DS doesn't realise I didn't pay £150 more like £25 grin) any sports clothes from JD? (north face and under armour big hits with my 13yo). Dartboard? Scooter? Just some of the things my DS likes that's not fifa or fortnite related 🙈

I’ve got a 12 yr old boy. He’s already got everything sporty that uhoh suggests. Probably a hoodie (ask his parents if he’s into any brands), chocolate and vouchers / money would go down well.
