I've 2 Christmas left before my son goes off to University and I want make this a family Christmas to be memorable.

For the Star Wars obsessed teen 

It has got to be the droid that is Sphero BB-8 .

In a galaxy far far long ago that was 1977 I was there from the start ! hurrah , and seeing a blockbuster at Christmas time has always been a family tradition in the T household. So what better for a tech love at Christmas that the droid Sphero BB-8 The App enabled Star wars Droid that  I  can play with with this Christmas , cat is going to love that !

£129 is the price for this little chap may the Force be with you !

For the teen that loves gaming

As my teen get ever more gangly limbs a kimber like a startled bambi he is outgrowing his rocker chair in his bedroom , so a new gaming seat was in order . This bean gaming chair form is ideal and he will be able to game in comfort or sit their reading his A level books as he tends to work any where but his desk .

i-ex® Gaming Bean Bag makes a great gift for a teenager! Most teenage boys are into their gaming, and this specially designed gaming bean bag chair is the perfect accessory.

For the sporty teen

Trainers are essential for a teenager it enables them to go outside and experience fresh air and clouds and stuff ....  But really for my teenager good trainers are a honest necessity as he is doing A level P E and apparently they do more than shimmy up a top in gym these days. At the moment he is having his training sessions video towards his A level , Every thing is oh so technical these days.

So these ASICS Gel-Kayano 22 Lite-show running shoes will be just the right present for his feet ! and there is plenty of choice of other trainers from from

These are priced at £115 but are a top quality sports shoes that meet the demands of the modern athlete.
