How To Choose Perfect Christmas Gifts For Boys

By Janice Wee

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. http://www.action-figures-shop.com/Justice-League-action-figures.htm

By the way, boys are especially enamoured by superhero stuff. Spiderman, http://www.cheapestsale.com/superheros/Spider-man.html Batman, Wolverine http://www.cheapestsale.com/superheros/Wolverine.html are among the hot favourites with boys.

Movie inspired gifts kids love include anything from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory http://www.toyskidslove.com/Charlie-and-the-Chocolate-Factory-toys.htm to Star Wars http://www.action-figures-shop.com/star-wars-action-figures.htm.

Younger boys who are hooked on Sesame Street might want something featuring their favourite character, Elmo http://www.toyskidslove.com/Elmo.htm.

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 advertised on TV.

This section http://www.birthdayjoy.com/birthday-boy.html 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 http://www.christmas-giftshop.com/boyschristmas.html 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. Like the ones found at http://www.christmas-giftshop.com/educational.htm.Educational DVDs with math, language and science games would be a hit with both kids and parents. So would board games that require thinking or language skills. Classic games like http://www.christmas-giftshop.com/chess-sets.htm comes to mind. As does http://www.christmas-giftshop.com/scrabble.htm.
