It’s always fun giving people gifts, and people receive them for a wide number of reasons. They could be for a birthday or Christmas, a wedding or be part of a baby shower.
Perhaps it’s time to give something special to your son, but you’re struggling for suggestions. If so, fear not because this article discusses 6 fun ideas of things you can surprise him with.
- Gaming Equipment
This will keep him entertained for hours on end, and he’ll be able to play online with his friends and make some new ones too. A gaming console or new gaming laptop might be just the thing to make his day.
You may decide to buy a brand new PlayStation or Xbox for him. If you purchase games be sure you know what he already owns, and what’s trending at the moment.
There are plenty of cheaper gaming accessories you can choose from—two examples are LED lights and playmats. It’s possible to see from the YourPlaymat website that many people like to create custom versions using images they upload online.
Some are influenced by Yugioh, MTG or Anime and there are discounts and reviews to help people decide.
- Basketball Equipment
If your son spends too much time gaming indoors, there are ways to tempt him outside! A basketball hoop is a great gift idea that your son will love. There are versions available that you can attach to almost any door frame in minutes, making them super easy to set up.
Basketball nets are available with different sized backboards so they fit every age group of basketball players perfectly. Full-size basketball goals tend to only be used by older teens or adults playing against each other rather than kids who are learning how to play.
- Tickets To A Sporting Event Or Concert
This will allow him to experience something new and exciting, and it will be a memory that he will always cherish. Plus, tickets are a great way to get out and enjoy some time together as a family. Alternatively, why not secretly invite some of his friends to go with him so it can be a lads’ day out?
If your son is into sports, tickets to a game are the perfect gift but if he prefers music, tickets to a concert are sure to please. If you don’t know what are the latest bands he’s into, have a secret word with one of his mates.
- A Trip To An Amusement Park
Amusement parks offer a variety of different rides and attractions, so there is something for everyone. Plus, they often have special events and deals throughout the year, so be sure to check their website before you go.
If your son is into thrill rides, a trip to a theme park may be the perfect gift. These parks offer roller coasters and other extreme rides that will get his heart racing. Some even have water slides and other wet attractions that are perfect for summer days.
- An Inflatable Pool Or Slide
An inflatable pool is an excellent gift idea for your son because it is something that will keep him entertained all summer long. He can enjoy the sunshine and play with his friends in the garden. They are easy to inflate and deflate and come in multiple colors.
An inflatable slide adds excitement without taking up too much space in-between seasons. Again, it is easy for your son to inflate and deflate it as needed. It offers kids hours of fun on hot days when they don’t feel like dealing with crowds at the local community pool. Plus you’ll know where he is and what he is doing at all times.
- Some Music Speakers
They can be a great way to let him listen to his music and enjoy premium sound quality (They’ll be better than what he may have on his phone or computer). Plus, it can be a lot of fun to jam along with musical instruments or to have them connected to his gaming equipment.
These days they usually come with Bluetooth and other functions which makes it easy to connect wirelessly to any music device. If you don’t want the noise in your home, however, why not buy him some quality headphones or earbuds?
Hopefully one of these suggestions has inspired you to do some more research. You may be able to find a bargain that will surprise and delight your son. It will be worth all your hard work just to see the look of appreciation and the smile on his face.
