Gifts for all with forward2me


Finding gifts for boys is always tricky. They are notoriously 'difficult' to buy for. Unimpressed with most clothing; generally ambivalent to jewellery and perfume, ornaments and smellies; boys can be really awkward. They would probably say the same about girls...

We're here to help. We've had a think and have come up with some gifts for boys and the even bigger boys we all love, squeezing the girls in at the end too.


Disney can't be beaten for the littlest men in your life. The latest popular characters are from Disney Infinity and Monster's University. Characters from Cars and Planes, as well as Buzz Lightyear will also keep them entertained.

Minecraft has been a huge phenomenon and there are plenty of related gifts to give. Posters, pyjamas and even Lego will suit the Minecraft obsessed boys you know.

Carrying on with the tech, all the boys I know are addicted to Apple stuff - iPods, iPads and iPhones are still up there as the most coveted items on the Christmas wish-list. Accessories for Apple gear make great stocking fillers too - covers, headphones, cases - all useful things that they might not already have. Games consoles and games always go down well and the X-Box One and Playstation 4 are already on most boys' Christmas lists this year no matter how old they are...

Sporty boys will love the latest football kits from their favourite team, a new football or even a sports bag.  Snooker or pool tables, table tennis or even air hockey make great gifts for boys for when the weather isn't playing ball. We can ship even really bulky items using our secure international delivery service.

Tear them away from the screen with a new scooter, skateboard or even rollerskates. Get them a Nerf gun and they can have running (skating?) battles with their friends.

If your kid wants to be too cool for school, and breaks the rule by actually liking clothes, check out RedBubble and River Island for some natty threads to keep him happy.


Geeks are cool at the moment... iwoot is a great site for geek-related gifts. Or how about a sci-fi boxed set from Amazon or a personalised T-shirt?

Books - several celebs have autobiographies out. Is he a bit of a chef? Try 'Cook Like a Man' or Tom Kerridge's 'Proper Pub Food' for starters from Amazon.

Man-bags are in - some great ones from Burberry. You might need a new wallet though...

Is he a classic car enthusiast? There are some interesting bits and pieces related to cars from motorgifts. And then there's always the reliable, ever-popular power tool. Proven to enhance any man's machismo, anything cordless will do.

Don't forget the ladies...


Littlies are still amazed by anything Peppa Pig related, from clothing to Peppa's playhouse. Disney enthrals them, princesses are still all the rage. Dressing up clothes keep them amused too.

If they want to get hold of your tech, why not get them a tablet of their own? Vtech produce a robust, children's tablet so they can play all day.

Older girls are into Monster High dolls at the moment. They also love Apple tech as much as the boys and there are some great accessories to glam up the gizmos. Use our UK parcel forwarding address to get all the gear.


Notonthehighstreet have a great selection of gifts, whether you want jewellery or a little 'arty' something. Cushions, throws and unusual household items can be found at Heals too. Snuggle up in a onesie with some slippers - Ugg slippers are the ones to get, apparently. For something bright, try Joules.

Handbags  are always appreciated, as are purses to put in them. Asos and Selfridges have many to choose from.

Check with our customer services department before you order, but the good news is we can ship chocolates to most countries now.

I hope we've made choosing gifts for boys a wee bit easier and given you some inspiration for the girls. Good luck!
