Best Gifts For Boys From A Mom Of Four 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.



1. Razor Rip Rider

This puts a new spin on the fun three wheelers we used to have, literally. The fun swivel wheels make doing loops, oh so much fun!

2. Snap Circuits

Snap circuits make a great gift for boys. 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.
My oldest son first discovered these in his gifted and talented class. We’ve purchased several sets over the years and highly recommend them. It’s a fun way to learn about circuits and electricity and parents can feel reassured that they are safe for the kiddos. Combine sets together to make unlimited inventions.

3. Diary Of A Wimpy Kid Book Series

Diary of a Wimpy Kid. 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.
My kids can’t get enough of the stories about a boy named Gregory. The comic book style interlaced with chapter books helped encourage reading. The movies are hysterical and I love the lessons the books teach with tons of humor. There are 9 books in the series.

4. Nintendo Wii U

Nintendo Wii for Holiday gifts. 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.
My kids have spent hours on this gaming system. I prefer the Wii U because we can also stream movies from amazon and netflix. Also, in a pinch, my kiddos have used the handheld controller to play games or watch a movie while the tv in the playroom is programmed to something else.





5. Legos

Lego Creator cottage. 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.
Legos are one of the best gifts we’ve ever given the boys. I’m forever amazed at what they have created. These easy sets can build 3 different designs, and once completed can be added to a brick collection (unless of course your child wants to keep their work of art on display!).

6. Walkie talkies

Boys love these things! Hide around the corner, pass back secret messages, spy on the neighborhood, or just keep in contact with your buddies while walking around the neighborhood.


7. iPod Touch

iPod Touches continue to be a favorite. 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.
My sons are in love with their iPod touches. They play with them everyday. They text (for free to other iPod owners!), FaceTime, and play games. They watch videos and movies and do their homework on them. Although pricey, these are probably the #1 toy used in our house.
We have the 5th generation and it looks like a 6th generation is available.

8. Nintendo Wii U Games (or other formats)

Super Smash Bros and other favorite video games. 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.
Three games my kiddos love. Mario Kart 8, Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric, Super Smash Bros, and Just Dance 2015
You can find these, among others by searching through the video game section of all three sites.

9. Nerf Footballs and Nerf guns

Ahhh, the Nerf I loved growing up, is the same Nerf that my kiddos love. The footballs make excellent gifts (we usually buy at least 1 a month for birthday parties) and the Nerf guns are also very popular.

10. Minecraft

Anything, anything, anything Minecraft. My kiddos are so hooked to this game. It’s fabulous for learning coding skills, teamwork, and basic computer gaming. My kiddos own t-shirts, plush toys, the actual game, Minecraft legos, among other things.
