    Need Gift Ideas Help

    Hi, any ideas of a present for a boy (15). He is my boyfriend's son and I am going to meet him for the first time this Christmas and I would want to surprise him with a nice gift. My budget is about 70 or 80.
    I was thinking about some video game (but I don't know his preferences), a gadget, or even a watch...

    Can you please help me with some suggestions !

    Don't you think vouchers are very impersonal and emotionally neutral?

    Please tell me if you have any more ideas though.

    I still think cash is very impersonal.

    Sporting gear is actually a great idea! I've recently seen an ad for this small camera for sports, since I found out Josh is really into Skateboarding I thought I could get him this camera to film his progress and I was also thinking about some watch (which obviously would have to be sports resistant). Do you think that would be a good combo?

    Katie.B my dear you feel that way because you are a woman.
    We are talking about a 15 year old male here.
    Having been one raised one and working on two grandsons take it from Old Papa a gift card from a local gaming store or cash will move you right to the top of the gift givers list in this young man's eyes.

    From about 14 years and older, boys prefer cash - so they can go get what they really want. They do remember where they money (or voucher) came from, and remember how they were able to procure their treasure.

    I think the camera is called a Go Hero but it looks quite expensive for what it is... I also found this shop that sells Sports watches do you think any of these wiill do? I would like him top wear it and not just leave it in a drawer somewhere...

    I posted a reply here but for some reason it does not show. Is there something I did wrong?
