It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, or whether you have kids of your own, you’ll undoubtedly have to think up some gift ideas for a little boy at some point. Whether you’re buying for a family member, a friend’s little one, or just your own, it can be difficult to think of birthday presents sometimes – especially when it seems that the boy in question already has it all.
Some parents will give you an idea of what to get him if you ask them – it can be far easier to do this rather than playing the guessing game, assuming that he’s into the same thing all kids his age are. However, if you’re stuck for inspiration, here are ten fab ideas for gifts that cover various budgets and interests.
Fancy Dress Costumes
When boys are young, imagination is everything and with George’s range of fancy dress costumes, the birthday boy can dream up all manner of scenarios while dressed as his favourite hero. Whether he’s a Marvel or DC fan boy and would love to dress as Thor or Superman, or he’d much prefer to dress as a cowboy or a cartoon character, there are plenty of fancy dress options to choose from, at affordable prices.
Is he a bit of a whizzkid on the games console? Perhaps he collects Skylanders, or Disney Infinity characters? You could add to his collection if so.
As one of the best-selling toys ever, LEGO continues to be a massive hit with boys, and girls, of all ages. New sets are released all the time, with The Simpsons and the LEGO Movie inspired collections making their way onto the shelves as we speak.
If the birthday boy loves his train set, you could treat him to a shiny new train, some track, or some accessories so that he can create his train-track masterpiece.
A Science Kit
Does he love to get a little hands-on and a little experimental? Even if you’re not sure, a science set is a great gift to give a boy if you’re unsure about what toys and action figures he may be into.
A Magic Set
If he fancies himself as the next Derren Brown or Dynamo, a magic set would be a hit. He’ll be presenting magic shows to his family and friends in no time!
For something cheap and cheerful, opt for a DVD. It doesn’t have to be a latest new release or Disney Pixar blockbuster. Old school films, such as Hook, Jumanji and the original Toy Story will likely go down a storm, too.
As the weather should be warming up soon (hopefully), it’d be a great excuse to buy him something to play with outside. Jumbo patio chalks, a new football or a pack of water balloons, for example!
Kerplunk, Hungry Hippos, Buckaroo, Gooey Louie – you name it, a game will always go down well. Alternatively, you could opt for an educational game, such as those made by Orchard Toys, instead.
You don’t have to spend a fortune to make a little boy’s birthday. Choose from a whole range of toys and games and treat him for his birthday this year.
