Technology would be very good like a new Xbox or playstation or some new PlayStation or Xbox games or if you have the extra money a new iPhone or iPad. AirPods are also very popular with teenager. You could also get him a very cool bike as that is popular too

You'd have to look at what he interested in.

It might also be worth looking at why he not asking for anything is he worried you can't afford things this year and doesn't want to stress you or is he struggling with everything and feeling depressed. Try talking to him

You could always put money in bank account for him to get something when he feels ready

Is he into music?

Maybe an Amazon gift card so that he could get some mp3 downloads?

Also, you can get basically anything from Amazon, so if music isn't his bag, he could get something else.

And the expiry date is very long.

The only downside is that you'd have to order stuff for him.

I have two sons, Mine are a bit older now but I do know teenage boys can be tricky to buy for. I usually opted for any of these: Aftershave, clothes, loungewear, trainers, gadgets, tech, sweets, playstation/xbox live cards. Amazon gift vouchers is a good shout.

Perhaps a hamper of some of his fav things/hobbies,interests? For instance one of my sons is into Manga & Japanese culture & also likes to draw sketches so Iv bought some Manga comic books, Sketching pencils etc & I'm going to get some Japanese sweets, noodle snacks & drinks & make up a hamper for him. All depends on what your son enjoys with regards to what you could add.

How about a box full of their favourite things, for example favourite sweets, chocolates, biscuits, drinks etc. Maybe personalise the box with his name on?

With all due respect, you're not going to get anything better than a Google search on here. Nobody knows your son personally and at the age of 14, people's personalities, likes and dislikes are already very unique. How does he spend his day other than going to school? There must be something he does in his spare time such as sport, gaming etc. Focus on that.

My son is only 7 but I know the feeling...😂 I like to gift him things which will keep him active. Such as bike, scooter etc.. but he already has it all so last year he got switch with some games. Electric scooters are very in at the moment. Does he play Roblox, apex or fortnite? You could buy him a game pass or specific character maybe? Also if hes onto any of them games there are plenty merchandise with it - mugs, cups, clothes with logo on it. Another thing I'm considering is to get him an experience- your son is old enough to get some driving experience maybe? Or be zoo keeper for a day etc. There are science, drawing etc kits you can get. If all else fails just take him as a treat to his preferred choice of day out - to escape rooms, arcade etc. It is hard to suggest without knowing his likes/dislikes.

I would call his bluff and not give him anything! Take a photo of his face when he realises then give him cash to buy what he likes.

Lynibis My Mum did that once. She bought me a board game and then surprised me with a console. I feel so bloody ungrateful in hindsight and actually have great memories of playing the board game (Battleships). All that crap I wanted as a teenager seems to insignificant now.

Dennab yep we have all been there. But I think parents need to shoulder some of the blame as they do not instil gratitude into kids any more.

I remember my ex coming home from a 3 month tour abroad with a bonus. It was late November and he wanted to buy bikes for our sons. I suggested waiting until Christmas but he went and got them, then they got expensive Xmas presents too.

Lynibis It's true what they say about appreciating what you've got. I had a financially comfortable childhood but was always taught that money doesn't grow on trees. It didn't stop me making some very silly mistakes but did help to show the value of things.

What about even a day out with his friend for throughout the Christmas holiday. If he has a Xbox or PlayStation a gift card for him to buy what he likes on it or a personalised controller.

Does he play World of Warcraft ? If so find out what side he is on as I have found out it matters. I bought some WOW bedding on EBay and Amazon has some clothing. Zavv I is worth a look too
