Mom of 4 boys, tried and true, list of 10 gifts for little boys!



Best gifts for Boys 2014. A mom of 4 boys lists her top 10 favorite gifts for boys. All items listed are owned by the family and have been used on a consistent basis. They have stood the test of time, and more importantly, the possibility of being destroyed by 4 boys.
This is my list of 10 gifts we have personally given to our children that have stood the test of time. These are the presents that were played with non-stop, that never sat collecting dust. Sometimes it’s so hard to find the right gift. Hopefully this list of 10 items of all price points will help you out if you need a little assistance in finding something that special boy in your life will like. These are the top 10 most fantastic toys that have gotten years of use in our house by all 4 boys. I would gear this list towards kids 7-14. In each case I will try to list several places to purchase so you can price check and find the best deal. The list is in no particular order.
