It may seem like a boring present to some. But vouchers can come from all different companies these days. You could stick with a clothing store or shop voucher. Which would go down well with an older boy, allowing them to pick some new clothes. Or you could go down a different voucher route.
Things like experience days or Paintball Vouchers would go down well. Paintballing is something that can be a lot of fun for a group of people to take part in so that it could be part of a birthday party as well. Experience days offer all kinds of options from driving a race car to a hot air balloon ride. If they’re a big fan of video games, you could get them a voucher for a gaming store. Or if they’re into board games, you could get them a voucher for a board game cafe. There will be something to appeal to your son.
Maybe your son has shown an interest in taking up a new hobby. Perhaps something like boxing or football. Maybe even street dancing or hockey. Whatever it may be you could buy a block amount of lessons so that they can try it out. They may fall in love it and it could be a new lease of life for them.
