Last week we shared our gift ideas for teenage girls and this week we are turning our attention to the boys. I actually find it much more difficult to buy for my teen son. However this year some awesome products have caught my eye and his sack will be brimming. From designer jumpers to X Box goodies there is something for every budget.
First up is a selection of games. We enjoy playing games in the evening and these will make a great addition to what we already have.
The Game of Things
The party game for anyone and everyone aged 14+. There are no right or wrong answers, just giggles galore as players try to guess who said what. In each round players write a response about anything and everything like ‘THINGS you would never wear’ or ‘THINGS you wouldn’t want to find in your sandwich’. You can be as outrageous as you like so grab yourself this distinctive wooden box of THINGS this Christmas and get together with friends and family for a very merry time. The Game of THINGS… is available from Amazon UK at a price of £32.99. We loved this game as it is not about knowledge just a sense of humor. It will be a hit with your teens!
This question and answer matching game is a family must have this Christmas. Match the ‘Which One’ questions to the correct answers to win points, but watch out this matching game has a twist, just one incorrect match will lose you everything. Just how confident will you be when the pressure is on? Which One Family Board Game ‘is available from Amazon for £18.00 and is also available from all leading stockists.

It is all about drones this year and the Nikko Air Race Vision™ 220 FPV Pro is fab. Immerse yourself in the action and race like a professional! Experience the thrill of real-time flying without any delay, the 5.8GHz analog frequency used by the professional DRL drones lets you see the action as it happens. Using the First Person View (FPV) goggles, this high-flying racing drone enables future pilots to see real-time video transmissions of their flight path and avoid obstacles without delay or interruption. You can take your training to the next level with the DRL Racing Simulator, a digital gaming platform that provides new pilots with the ability to learn how to fly a racing drone, compete in actual DRL™ courses, and master their skills before taking to flight in real life. Made of a highly-durable composite frame, the drone includes a full color LCD screen and FPV goggles that provide an immersive flight experience from the cockpit of the drone, as well as a 130-degree adjustable wide-angle camera, three variable flight modes, multiple speed settings and 16 one-touch stunts that will take pilots from beginner to pro in no time. Ages 14+. My dad has enjoyed trying this out and is impressed with the speed it gets up to. He also found it fine to fly it. It can be bought for £119.99 with free delivery on Amazon.
