Every year I go back to the drawing board and share my favorite holiday gifts. I love this exercise because I get to share with you all that my boys love RIGHT now. So, in this post, you will find, super fun, reasonably priced worthwhile toys & holiday gifts for boys.
Not only are holidays special for kids because of all that lands under the Christmas tree (in our home), they’re also a time to exercise gratitude and to give back to the community.
Best Holiday Gifts – 10-Year-Old Boys
Ever since my son decided to wear this hilarious t-shirt to a school concert instead of wearing a carrot costume, I knew funny t-shirts were going to be his thing. This vintage t-shirt is no exception!
Building is and always will be an obsession (in a good way) for my boys. We’ve explored the best building materials for kids, studied bridges, and dug into engineering for kids. So, this engineering toy is a perfect addition.
Ever since I found my boys’ nestled on the couch watching “don’t laugh” videos on Youtube, I decided there has to be another way to feed that desire to challenge their giggles. As you can imagine, when I discovered this book, my heart jumped for joy!
This unconventional gift for boys is a hit in our home. Last spring while at a baseball game that was dragging on a bit too long, I noticed a friend walk over to her car and pull out this contraption.
When she explained that it was a metal detector and that her boys will hunt for treasure for hours on end, I knew this item needed to be part of our life!
Books like this one keep my son occupied for loads of time. Furthermore, the information discovered within the pages ignites further learning of new topics he never knew even existed in the world!
This bestselling book is timeless and explores essential childhood skills such as learning how to fish, how to use a compass, and how to build a treehouse.
Best Outdoor Gifts for 8-Year-Old Boys
We love our nerf guns and this item takes it to a whole new level.
A great time to push financial responsibility and money sense to kids. These piggy banks engage kids and get them thinking about saving versus spending. Plus there is a lock on it to keep all funds safe from siblings!
There is no better gift than the gift of laughter! My 8-year-old cannot get enough of hearing, telling, and creating his own amazing jokes!
Drone obsession, anyone? Can you imagine when you were a kid having a fascination with this flying object? Well, times have changed!
Holidays Gifts for 5-Year-Old Boys
My son spent nearly 3 hours with this art station the first day it arrived in our home.
Get kids outside with this super fun exploration kit. What child doesn’t love a good pair of binoculars!
My 5 year old uses magnetic tiles to build solo structures but also to integrate with his hot wheels sets and legos.
One of my fondest memories as a child was looking things up in the encyclopedia. Do you think it is possible to bring back that excitement and anticipation of learning? Well, this book is a good start.
My 5-year old’s love for all things hot wheels continues to burn strong!
The ride-on vehicle is the number one most requested gift by my five-year-old this year. Wish me luck.
