Bday/Grad gift

My son will be 14 next month and a few weeks after he's graduating from middle school.

We were thinking PS5 for a combined gift.
He has the 4 now and plays with his friends a lot at night,

Any other ideas if we don't get that for him?
He has a good phone and a PC already.

If you got a PS5 and suggestions best place to get it?

Thanks

I think the PS5 is perfect. My 12 year old is obsessed with it. We got it from eBay only because that was the only place we could find it (Christmas 2021).

Did you ask him what he would like? Once they are teens, it is better off to ask then just try and surprise.

The oculus is also a lot of fun for that age.

He is one of those... I'm good with whatever kids.
He's pretty easy going. Already got a new PC last year for his bar mitzvah, not huge into sneakers, but has to be good Nikes (he can just slip on LOL).

Unless he really, really wants something specific he just doesn't care and I know he plays his PS4 a lot with friends and online. We'd also like to make it a surprise bc I think it's something he'd be happy with

I'm only talking about my 13 year old. Now my 11 year old likes to spend our money. LOL
Usually on those ridiculously expensive Legos or some electronics. LOL

What about a smartwatch? My DD wanted the Oculus and I told her if she wanted it, she would have to save her money for it. She decided not to buy that and to get an Apple Watch.
