Today I’m so excited to be sharing with you the best Christmas gifts for boys! Since I don’t have boys of my own (and I’m still waiting for nephews to come along!) I talked to all of my boy-mom friends about their sons’ favorite things. These are the best of the best, toys that are durable, build imagination and physical development, and will last longer than a dang fidget spinner.
P.S. How cute is my friend’s son, Peter?! The blonde mohawk gets me every time!
Wicked Comfy Pajamas – Walkie Talkie Set – Gear Building Blocks – Lacrosse Set – Over and Under the Snow – LL Bean Fleece Pullover – Dyson Mini Vaccuum – BluTrak Race Car Track – Snowman Family Kit – LCD Doodle Pad – Bosch Tool Set
Cozy Christmas pajamas are a must, and how cute are these ‘wicked comfy’ jammies from L.L. Bean? They come in lots of sizes, so big and little brothers could match. I also love L.L. Beans cozy fleece pullovers for fall and into winter to wear under a puffer jacket or vest.
When I was a kid, me and my brother would have flipped over these walkie talkies. These have me totally nostalgic for days spent outside playing cops & robbers, or inside building forts and going on secret missions. The set of three is enough to split into teams or share when friends come over. Another new version of a classic, these STEM gear toys are fun to use and educational, and a set of 100 is under $25.
I’m always on the lookout for active outdoor toys for my kids, and this lacrosse set is a great introduction to the sport and a fun way to build hand-eye coordination. They are the perfect size for kiddos, and can even be used on snowy days when you just need them out. of. the. house. If you can’t quite send them out in the snow, you might as well put them to work (kidding, kind of) and this mini Dyson vacuum looks just like the real thing and even has suction!
If you have a car-obsessed kid in your life, you need the BluTrak race track. It’s a flexible track that can be stuck to walls and looped around household objects for endless combinations of flips, turns, and hills. When not in use, it rolls up for easy storage.
Over and Under the Snow is a great book for curious, nature-loving kids. Bright illustrations show tunnels and dens underground where animals live safe and warm under the snow. For more snow fun, we love this snow man family kit from L.L. Bean. Eyes, buttons, noses, and even antlers – everything you need but the snow to make a whole family of snow men.
I love these LCD doodle pads for quiet time, a church bag, or travel. They can draw and write to their hearts content with the included stylus, then tap it clean and start again. For more indoor fun, this tool set is super durable and looks just like the grown-ups.
