Christmas Presents For Boys Aged 12 To 14

If you've got a boy aged between 12 and 14 to buy for this Christmas and you're in need of inspiration, we've put together a fabulous festive gift guide that should be just the ticket.

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!
