    Default 12 year old boy present

    Hi

    Anyone have any ideas for my 12 year old nephew's birthday present. He is overseas so it will need to be light to post.

    I dont want to do vouchers etc as I do this for christmas and like to buy him a real present for his birthday. So far I have got him a t-shirt.

    He isnt sporty, not all that keen on reading, likes animals/wildlife, slightly into computers but not sure what game stuff he'd got.

    HEEELLP!

    Not stingy $50 is very generous. Does he like card games like UNO or would a book on wildlife interest him, even if he doesnt read?

    Thanks punkbaby. Not sure about the cardgame. I had thought about the wildlife book but was worried about the postage, maybe I could have a look on Amazon....hmmmm.

    Or I wonder if there is an Australian wildlife dvd I could get him

    Thanks you have got my brain ticking

    dvd great idea too, postage with your t shirt would easily fit into a $9 satchel they hold 3kgs the dvd and t shirt would cost about $5
