If they will want to be able to get cheap pre-owned games from CEX/Game or borrow games from their mates I would avoid the all digital edition.

This, it might be cheaper but will work out dearer in the long run
Digital games if you can get them cheaper. Disc still requires downloading so may as well save some money if you can with that.
Been some good deals on the Xbox One X lately so I would consider that too if it's not outwith your budget.
Get a game pass and ea access subscription. Loads of games for the money. Also set up and update the console and put some digital games on before you give it as downloads can be extremely long. Console will need update as well
Already discussed similar situation here

Cheers for the feedback so far . Any info on where to buy? Cheapest bundles? I've seen Currys, Argos etc, at around the £250 mark. Is there any chance of me paying under £200?..
Are you looking for the Xbox one X (the 4K beast) or the stand Xbox One S. How old is he and what TV will it be used with.
Amazon have a 1TB XBox One S (with optical drive) for £189 (its a fulfilled by Amazon) - a decent deal if it needs to be bought now. shopto.net/en/…es/ - Shopto have a two controller bundle for £219 or Console + Forza Horizon 4 racing (which is currently included with Gamepass).

As above, I would recommend reading up on XBox Gamepass as well - a huge digital library of games to use while you have membership - you'll get 1 month (almost) free with the console.
IF you have until March I would be holding out.. the prices won't go higher and deals will surely come.

Looks like a decent price to me, can't see it for less.

If you want it cheaper you will have to settle for the digital only version which means no physical games or DVD/BD playback.

Yeah also a good deal, I have used ShopTo for many years so you should be fine with them.

Or just wait.. They have weeks to get it, not 24 hours
Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is the cheapest because it has no disc drive. This is probably best for a family on a budget as you then only need a subscription to Game Pass and EA Access without ever having to buy a game. Really good idea if you have kids as you don't have to worry about buying them a game everytime you are out at the shops.

Game Pass is considered the Netflix of gaming and is getting close to reaching 300 games. More games get added each month than those that leave. Includes family friendly games like Minecraft, Rocket League, Untitled Goose Game, Human Fall Flat, LEGO, Rush: A DisneyPixar Adventure, Super Lucky's Tale, Disney Epic Mickey 2, Tracks: The Train Set Game, Snake Pass, Zoo Tycoon Adventures, Disneyland Adventures and Overcooked! 2.

Two popular kids games exclusive to Xbox are Happy Wars and Roblox which are free to play. Fortnite is another popular game with the kids and free to play.

My local Cex got used 1s for £150/160. But I've managed to find brand new for around £180/190. So it might b worth the extra few quid to get new
