Hi, any advice?  He likes sports and politics. I could try to find a book but was wondering if you had any other ideas? I prefer a gift rather than a voucher.

Thanks

Does he read?  What is your budget?

The “Best Political Cartoons 2019” book perhaps?

I am buying this for my 16 year old. Anything from the Nike Jordan range is cool.

Is he interested in travel?

The scratch-off maps are fun.  Australian Geographic used to sell them - I think they are now Curious Planet - but I think there will be a few around.

Subscription to a sports mag? Either sport specific if he has a favourite or something that has a bit of everything, like Inside Sport.

Or a pair of Nike socks if you don't want to do sweets!

Also - at the Nike store they have these cool gym bags which I see a few kids using at sports - either as a bag - or in my dd's case to put her wet training gear in.  They are almost always $20 at the Nike outlets if you have one near you

Thanks for all the ideas. I normally spend around $30 but could go a bit higher.

He likes AFL and soccer, maybe basketball but I will have to check.
