Wicked Uncle Teenage Present Review

Wicked Uncle approached me and asked if I would like to try out a gift of up to £40 from their website. I said yes please especially as I'm stumped for ideas for my sons upcoming 18th birthday. You 'd be forgiven for thinking there is nothing suitable at all for an 18 year old or older but I assure you there is .

We are into the time of independence with my son going to university next year and announcing he'd like to holiday with his friends . How exactly he'll holiday with no job is another matter ( all study at the moment )  but he's ever the resourceful young chap ! With that in mind I thought a scratch off map would we ideal , we love travelling as a family so with his independent travel plans in mind he'll love this !

Original version of the high quality wall map with a scratchable surface. 
Scratch off the foil layer to show all the places you have visited to reveal a whole new world below, featuring vibrant colour and geographical detail. Making a great addition to any wall, measuring 82cm x 58cm, the result is a totally unique and personalised world map just for you. Comes packaged in a smart poster tube - perfect for the intrepid traveller."
This is priced at £18.95
In a similar vain to the search of map  I thought the adventure journal would be ideal ! perhaps he will take us parents off on his travels  ? I think that will probably be a no !

"A fun 64 page journal featuring ‘must do’ experiences from around the world. 

Packed full of exciting ideas and experiences that are out of the ordinary, from a horseback safari in Kenya, a steak dinner in Buenos Aires, wreck diving in Egypt to swimming in the Great Barrier Reef. This great pack has 8 scratchable maps to scratch off each experience if you are lucky enough to do it, in categories of nature, culture, activity and cuisine. With over 300 ideas to inspire and excite, this is the ultimate fun to-do list - discover the explorer in you!"

Priced at £16.95 ps he will be funding these adventures himself and not applying to the bank of Mum and Dad !
And it's not your birthday unless you have birthday chocolates so I choose Chocolate Fish and Chips , y husband literally though it was chocolate covered Fish and Chips ( bless him ) but in this day and age you never know do you !

What it actually is Belgian chocolate shapes of Fish and Chips !

" A fun trio of chocolate that's a unique take on the classic seaside fish and chips. 
Each yummy box contains a loveable detailed chocolate fish, a tasty ampersand and a perfectly-sized portion of fries. Handmade by the magical elves at Choc on Choc in Somerset, a brilliant idea. The traditional British take away has just got even better!"

Priced at £6.95 and isn't lucky that there is 3 pieces of chocolate and we are a family of 3 .

Delivery is very prompt and there is even an option ( payable ) to have your presents wrapped . I would not hesitate to use Wicked Uncle again for future presents for all of my family !
