A little gift guide for what the men in my life REALLY want this Christmas… {& a giveaway too!}

Kids change their minds like the wind when it comes to writing out their Christmas wish list. My lot is no exception! However, I have been a little sneaky this year and actually managed to pull off a little undercover work to see what my children would really like for Christmas. Sneaky me!

But it was interesting to compare what they had put on their wish list to what they were actually wishing they would get – and god love my children but they were focusing more on how much those items cost {and going for something cheaper} rather than asking for the thing they would really love to unwrap on Christmas morning.

For example, my son has been going on and on at me about the new WWE 2K18 game and how he hopes he can unwrap it on Christmas morning. He’s been a wrestling fan for as long as I can remember – which makes me super proud because I too am a wrestling fan! I have been since the ole Royal Rumble days back in the late 80’s! 

What makes WWE 2K18 more exciting is that this game promises to have the most realistic WWE video game experience too date! You can have eight-man matches {WOW}, there’s a new grapple carry system, weight detention {another new feature}, loads of new animations and even backstage access! So, straight off the bat, I can see why my son is keen to play W2K18 – I’d be lying if I wasn’t wanting to play it as well! 

Christmas gift guide

Xbox One ‘Ocean Shadow’ Wireless controller // Full face kids BMX bike helmet // Graphics Tablet // Viper BMX Bike // Blindside Stunt scooter // VRSE Jurassic World // WWE 2K18 // NBA 2K18 

I did a little ‘secret undercover’ Santa shopping with my son recently and for months he was adamant that wanted a new desktop PC for his gaming – but it became apparent that what he would really like, was a new bike. And specifically a BMX bike – which I was totally on board with because not only is it cheaper than a new desktop computer, but it will also get him out more. I had a pretty snazzy yellow BMX 2000 when I was around his age and I loved it – stunt nuts and all – so I know he would be so excited to come downstairs on Christmas morning to see this waiting for him.

I have added the stunt scooter because my son was torn, for a moment, between the BMX & a stunt scooter. So I may spoil him with both this year {and possibly his Sisters too} because they’re so much fun and you can learn cool tricks and things. Oh no! My hallway is going to be overrun with scooters, bikes and possibly stunt ramps and such, isn’t it? Maybe I didn’t think this through! Only kidding – it’s part of the course when you have children, right? 

The full faced bike helmet is a no-brainer – when the kids are on bikes & scooters I am a firm believer that helmets are a must! I picked this one as I thought it would look awesome with the Viper BMX!

Unwrapping a graphics tablet when your a little nerdy on photoshop will always be a welcomed gift. My 18yr old enjoys playing around on photoshop and he has been asking me for ages for one of these! So I cannot wait to surprise him with one – let’s hope he doesn’t read my blog!

My Husband – the man of the house – loves his gadgets – like, loves his gadgets and he is such a huge fan of VR that I know this VRSE Jurassic World would keep him entertained for hours – or at least until I hijack it off him! I think between us I am the bigger Dinosaur fan! Although he does have a better aim than me! 

Lastly, being in a gaming household – games and a snazzy wireless controller had to make an appearance on this little gift guide. All of my kids are gamers so it’s hard to say which of them would enjoy these games more. But if I’m honest, I think WWE 2K18 would be the favourite because who isn’t a fan of a good wrestling match! However, how would one of you like to be in with a chance to win BOTH of this games {value of £100} for either a PS4 or XBOX ONE!
