It's almost that time of year again and I think it's always worth being prepared. As you know we have my son's birthday before Christmas and my daughter's birthday after so making sure I select the right gifts is quite important. Also if I'm organised it means no stressful last minute buying and spending lots of money just for the sake of it. I like to take my time and plan where I can so I've put together this lovely gift guide of Christmas present ideas for older boys. My son is 12 so this gives you an idea of what age I'm aiming for, 12+ really. So read on to see my top Christmas gift picks for 2021.
Call of Duty Bedding Set
My son is getting so hard to buy for but he loves his gaming and he loves his bed, haha, so this Call of Duty double duvet and pillowcases bedding set is literally perfect for him. It's a brilliant design sure to suite any older boys room, teens and even young men, and with the new release of Vanguard it's perfecting timing for all Call of Duty lovers. Made from a soft polycotton fabric and features a reversible design, one side boasts an action-packed COD print, while the flipside is covered in an all-over camo pattern. This set is fully licensed and includes one double duvet cover (198 x 198 cm) and two pillowcases (50 x 75 cm). Retails for £35 on the Very website.
PrimaBerry Passport Holder & Luggage Tag
It's inevitable that eventually my son will want to travel with friends as he gets older so this lovely passport holder and luggage tag set from PrimaBerry would make an excellent gift. Inspired by the sea and the sky this set is beautiful and won't break the bank at a very reasonably priced £8.99. Made from environmental friendly PU this set is waterproof and durable. Something which my son needs as he can be so hashy with his things.
I absolutely love a practical gift at Christmas and there's non better than this Bicycle Cover from Bike Parka. It really is the gift to get someone who has everything, especially older boys/teens/men! We all know a boy/man with a bike and it's usually well loved so why not purchase and gift this fab bike cover to keep their precious ride snug as a bug from all kinds of weather. It's excellent for those on the move and has unique lock-through panel and attachable Stuff Sac. Bike Parka have engineered these covers for tough protection against rain, snow and ice. Their technology ensures your bike will be kept dry and clean even in the harshest of weather. Retailing at around £39.95 I really think this is an awesome practical gift for all bike lovers.
If you’re looking for something more unusual to gift then why not give the gift of driving? It'll be a unique and exciting experience that'll make memories to last a lifetime. My son would definitely love this and I'd love it to as it's a gift that doesn't take up space in my house haha! If you're child is aged 10 or over they can get behind the wheel of a real car with Young Driver, how amazing is that. There's over 70 UK venues so plenty to choose from. I was surprised that there's a few near me just outside of Fife. Prices for a 30-minute lesson for 10 to 17-year olds start from £32.99. Gift vouchers are available and can be purchased from www.youngdriver.com.
