Birthday ideas, boy age 11

Hi all,
My boy turns 11 next week, and I am struggling to think of what to get him, apart from sports and computer game related gifts. He quite likes construction though, and I was wondering if anyone could recommend (woodworking) craft kits for a boy his age, even large kits like a go kart or something that he could actually then use?
Thank you!

My DS is 11 in November. For his birthday he’s getting:
ThinkFun laser maze
Magic set
Hydraulic robot arm kit

For Christmas he’s getting:
Marble circuit puzzle
Chemistry set
Basketball hoop and ball
Stikbot studio
Soda stream

Besides playing on video games, he likes Hot Wires and his dart board.

Thank you so much. I think my son might like Boom Trix and the Marble Circuit Puzzle. They look great!

My ds likes those excavation kits...National Geographic do good ones. It's like a piece of rock with a fossil or sea creature (not real!) in it and they chisel it out...kept him busy for ages.

He also loves the air fix kits, cars and planes.
