Choosing the right gift for boys can be a tough ask. It can also be more than a little frustrating when something you’ve spent a lot of money on doesn’t seem to impress them at all!
Though no two boys are the exact same, we have noticed that there are a few staples that always seem to hit the mark. Here are some safe, fun and cool bets for boys Christmas Gifts this year!
These days, tech surrounds us in every aspect of our everyday lives. For boys, it is only natural that a lot of them will find a lot of this stuff really cool, even if they don’t fully understand how it works yet. On top of that, space travel is always going to pique their interest levels.
With this interactive robot, they can explore the far regions of the house, moving the robot by both voice and touch commands. It can also record and repeat messages. Basically, it’s like a smarter version of R2D2. At a very reasonable $69, this may well be the ideal gift for boys this Christmas!
Plants. They’re probably not the coolest gift idea in the mind of a young boy, are they? But, what if the plant was to eat insects as they passed by? We’re pretty sure that changes things! This little grow kit allows you to grow your own carnivorous plant. Sounds dangerous, but we can assure you that it is only interested in flies!
The kit itself contains everything you need to grow your own Drosera. It will also promote and cultivate an interest in the natural world. The plant itself is perfectly suited to the Australian climate and will thrive relatively easily on a desk or by your window. Better yet, this fascinating little meat-eater only costs $15!
Ever since the Harry Potter books and films came out, many of us have dreamed of being able to play a game of quidditch. However, seeing as we’re confined by our mere-mortal bodies, that just isn’t possible for most of us. But this toy brings us one step closer to living that dream.
This golden snitch not only flies, it also responds to your hand movements! It’s remote-controlled, rechargeable via USB, and looks ridiculously close to the real thing. So, if you’re buying for a quidditch fan, you could certainly do worse than this golden snitch for $59.99.
A lot has changed since we were kids. Simple gifts have been replaced by super high-tech toys like the robot astronaut above. That being said, some of the stuff us oldie's used to play withh absolutely has more than a little appeal left. You can’t mess with the classics, it seems!
When it comes to pure fun, shooting bits of potato at things was pretty much the best thing ever all those years ago. So why not let them go nuts with the spud gun for a measly $14.99. Hours of mischief, guaranteed!
Bouncy balls are always a hit when it comes to having a bit of fun. It’s simple, it generates a decent amount of chaos; basically, it’s boy stuff through and through. But the game changes a little when you actually get to sit down and design your own special models.
In this kit, you’ll find everything you need to make a vast array of different shapes and patterns. There’s even metallic and glow in the dark finishes. To be honest, we’re a little bit jealous this wasn’t around in our day. You can either gift this or keep it for yourself at only $25.
Admittedly, this isn’t so much a present just for the boys. Pretty much anyone will find this nifty little device more than a little interesting. Seeing that it accurately predicts the weather, it isn’t exactly your typical Christmas gift. But, for those interested in those kinds of things – it’s pretty much ideal.
The way it works is really simple. One side will tell you how cloudy the day is going to be. When that cylinder is cloudy, it’s going to be the same outside. The other cylinder accurately gives you the temperature. Grab one for them for $59
No list of gift ideas for boys would be complete without at least one mention of dinosaurs! After all, from the age of 3 onwards, boys will just love to rattle off dinosaur facts to just about anyone who will listen.
It may sound like a bad idea to invite a T-Rex into the bedroom but this guy isn’t scary in the slightest. To turn it on and adjust the light, all you need to do is give it a light tap or a squeeze. It’s also super-practical and is USB chargeable and very portable. Coming in at $29.99, this dino companion is sure to be a hit.
And here it is; the second and last mention of dinosaurs on this list. Let’s face it, dinosaurs are pretty much the coolest thing ever when it comes to children’s imaginations. They’re massive, they’re green (well besides this one), and they’re sometimes a little mean.
Well, what cooler thing is there for a dino-obsessed boy than gifting them the possibility to actually become one whenever they want to? Yeah, I don’t think that experience can be topped. This inflatable dino suit is sure to impress and inspire more than a few pranks!
Here’s another simple solution to all of your gift-buying woes. Better yet, it is one that will take them away from the screens and out into the outside world. This glider is super simple to build and flies much further than your regular paper model.
For those kinds of boys that are hard to buy for, this hand-launched glider might be your best shot. It’s simple, it’s fun, and it won’t cost you much at all. You can get yours here for just $22.
Imagination and creativity are central to the experience of being a boy. If you’re not running away from invisible dinosaurs, you’re probably out in the garden trying to save the world. If the boy you are buying for is one of these types of kids, this is probably the gift you have been looking for!
The superhero handbook helps you to create a superhero name for yourself, add in a good mix of superhero abilities, and even help you create a costume and special gadgets! At $20, that’s a great price for an adventure that will probably last for years to come!
