    Default 7 year old boy b'day present ideas..

    Can anyone swing me any? DS's b'day is in a few weeks and I seriously have no idea what to get him. He's not really into anything particular. His pretty much well and truely past the toy stage, hates sports, already has a computer, ipad, DS, etc... no need for more technology.
    I was thinking maybe a craft set as he enjoys that kind of stuff, but what else?

    Speaking from experience, you might live to regret a magic kit as it resulted in non-stop magic tricks being performed. He loved it though. 😊

    An special outing, for example a lunch date and take him shopping to pick his own present.

    Or perhaps a season pass somewhere he like to go.

    Or a bedroom makeover

    Lego, books, a favourite movie on DVD.

    Or what about an experience instead? Like a trip to the zoo or theme park/attraction that's nearby?
