How To Choose The Perfect Christmas Gifts For Boys
What do boys want for Christmas?
Every year, there would be one particular item that every child
must have. That would probably be the gift the kid would pester
mom or grandma for. If the little boy in question tells you what
he wants for Christmas and it is within your budget, then
problem solved. That is the ideal gift for him.. that is, if it
is not something that is potentially dangerous like firearms or
anything inappropriate for a boy his age.
What if the boy does not tell you what he wants, or the gift he
asks for is out of the question? What are the gifts that boys
like that are appropriate for his age?
Kids basically like whatever they see on TV.
Take a cue from his favourite program. If he has to watch
Justice League every week, then he would be thrilled to receive
Justice League action figures. Likewise if he is
crazy about Curious George, he would be thrilled by a c
urious george soft toy.
I have 2 boys myself. Whenever they see the ads while watching
their favourite program, they come running to me with "Mommy, I
want..." whatever they see on TV. If you think what appears on
TV shapes their tastes, you should see their reaction after
watching a movie. After watching The Incredibles, they wanted
every one of the In
credibles toys they saw at fast food outlets, shops..
basically everywhere we went.
This section on Birthday
gifts for boys applies to Christmas gifts too. Based on what
my boys are crazy about. They have a common interest in cars,
superheros, gadgets, build it yourself models and trading cards
which they share with the other boys their age in school.
If you know the child well enough, buying that perfect gift is a
cinch. Just pay attention to the child's interest and you are
bound to find the appropriate gift in the stores.
Based on what my kids loved at the different stages of life, I
compiled this. Chris
tmas gifts for boys by age to list down the things my boys
were crazy about each year in their lives.
What if the child's parent disapproves of your choice of gifts.
What seems perfect to the kid may be too trivial, to distracting
or a bad influence in the eyes of the parent.
Ask the parent what you should get that boy for Christmas and
the parent would recommend books or clothing. Practical things.
The kid would want an xbox or some game. Fun stuff.
So how do you reconcile the two?
Educational games would meet both sets of demands. Fun and
educational gifts for kids would be good. My sister gave a cranium
game to my kid for his birthday and he loved it. Even his
dad was impressed by the educational value of the game.
Practical because I child learns math, language and thinking
skills through the game. The kids love it too because it is fun.
