The tween and early teen years are when your child may start developing a strong sense of individual identity. That's all well and good, but can make present planning a bit of a nightmare.
To ease the strain, we've trawled the web and the high street to round up the best toys, gadgets and games on offer this year.
There's something for everyone, from Doctor Who memorabilia to zombie survival guides (sure to come in handy some day).
For the sporty types, we've got a range of outdoor and indoor gear, including a basketball hoop you can mount to an outside wall, and a full size ping pong table that won't break the bank.
And nights in are no problem either: included on the list are best-selling board game Settlers of Catan, where players build their own civilisations, and a 3D jigsaw model of the Empire State Building that lights up with spectacular LEDs.
Even better, our gallery lets you know where you can get the best deal, sometimes knocking a hefty chunk off the RRP. Take a look below and get some Christmas inspiration!
