Lego Minecraft – The Jungle Tree House (₹7,012)

Minecraft – the video game that replaced Lego as the ultimate creative tool for children – is now available in Lego form. That’s right, we’ve now gone full circle. Still, this is an excellent gift for Minecraft obsessors, with the Lego kit complete with a waterfall. Best of all, the included Skeleton aren’t capable of real destruction, so your creations should be safe and sound.

While your Xbox One controller may be perfect for gunnin’ down aliens and Nazis, it’s not quite as practical for Netflix navigating and TV browsing. This remote provides a handy alternative which is a pro at seeking out season two of Stranger Things. Take note, though, to use the remote for controlling your TV and volume, you’ll need the Kinect sensor. It has its uses after all.

Control freak wall art (from ₹170)
