Gifts for Tween Boys
I asked my email subscribers who the hardest people to shop for were and one of the answers I got over and over again were tween boys (ages 9-12). Not girls but tween boys.
They may not have necessarily called them tween boys but people asked for gifts for 10 year old boys, 11 year old boys, and even 12 year old boys.
I don’t have tween boys yet nor do I know much about what to get tween boys. I mean I’m pretty sure any kid would love this monthly adventure box, but I don’t have tween boys so not 100% sure.
Luckily I have a brother who does. So I asked my sister-in-law to put together a list of the best gifts for tween boys, mostly based on her own sons’ Christmas wish lists! She put this list together when her boys were 9 and 11 and many of the items on the list are things that they use and love.
Since her boys were 9 and 11, I’m just going to go right in the middle and call these gifts for 10 year old boys. They’d work great for 9, 10, 11, and 12 year old boys as well.
My number one gift for kids of any age is one of these experience gifts for kids but if you’re going to buy something tangible, these gift ideas are great too!
