    So, what to get my 12 year old nephew for his birthday?

    He has EVERYTHING, ps3, xbox, ds, tv, dvd player, bike, skateboard, skooter, mountains of books/games/dvd's, lots of clothes etc...

    Didn't want to spend too much as there is 5 birthdays in may in my family!

    So was thinking around £10?

    Any ideas!?

    Thanks in advance!

    My 12 year old boy would rather have a voucher for one of the games places (game/gamestation etc) off his auntie, then he could choose the game he really wants, or is there a film thats recently out that he would like the dvd of?

    Hmm suppose i should have added what kind of person he is, he's very outdoorsy so don't think he'd be interested in anything like that!

    Thanks for your suggestion anyway! That shop may come in handy for another birthday this month!

    Hmm yes that is a good idea!

    Unfortunately, an ipod is one of the things he doesn't have haha!



    I've had a think and thinking maybe a quicksilver wallet or belt or something? as most of his clothes aren't brand names, and if i remember rightly when i was that age if you had a designer item you were really "cool" lol

    A 14 year old girlfriend would be appreciated by most 12 year old boys.

    If he happens to be a fan of mother nature, the BBC Planet Earth series is only £14.99 on BluRay from Amazon. Seeing that he has a PS3, he can play the series since the console also functions as a BluRay player. ;)
