I have two TWEEN boys and sometimes finding a good gift can be challenging. So with their help, I’ve created a gifts for tween boys guide.
I have two boys ages 10 and 12, officially tweens! It can be challenging to find some gifts that they like, so with their help, I’ve made a fun list of gifts your tween should love. Video games (like the Nintendo Switch) and gift cards seem to be the go-to gifts for this age, but I wanted some other ideas too. Here are OVER 30 ITEMS to help you.
Finding the perfect gift for your teens can be tough. Don’t forget to shop for your teenage boys from this list too. There are some great birthday and Christmas gifts.
Before I get to these gifts, I do have a few more gift guides that are popular. See if one of these will help you find what you’re looking for. Make sure you are keeping out for sales throughout the year.

Update: I’ve gotten several gifts at a website called Uncommon Goods. They have cool and unique gifts for tweens that are silly and fun. They have products for kids all the way up to adults. Check that website out too.
Gifts for Boys- They are going to love them!
This has been my go to gift this year! Kids love them! I’ve bought this waterproof shower speaker several times and it’s a winner with a great price! It has a suction cup attached so they can put it on the shower wall.
These are great for many different reasons. Since kids have been at home and on their computers and video games, these will help with headaches and better sleep. I bought four pairs from this company and love them all. One pair even came with a blue light so we could test the glasses ourselves.
Again, perfect for gaming or school work at home. All room decor is a good idea!
My kids love these. They’re inexpensive and great stocking stuffers too. Make sure you get the right size for your kid’s computer.
All kids could use an additional water bottle. My kids take them everywhere- biking, car, school, sports and I make them use them in their rooms so they don’t spill. They also get nasty after a while so it’s nice to replace the ones that look beat.
I just bought this for Christmas and have it hidden. Update: My son loves this. I told my family members what I got my son and then they purchased his favorite drinks to keep inside.
This game falls in line with card games maybe. My family isn’t into board games like we were when they were smaller, but this is something that the whole family will love.
You can play with real money too and it can make fun a fun holiday or birthday. It’s turned into our favorite holiday activity when we have all the family around. We take it to out of town sports trips and get the whole team involved.
My son wanted this for a Christmas gift so I caved and got it for him. He LOVES it and can cruise the neighborhood on it. This is the exact one we purchased and have had no issues with it. Update: It’s been a few years since I added this to the gift guide, but it’s held up well and he still rides it at 15 years old.
Tie-dying is such a good time! You can get some inexpensive tees at a hobby store or just dye things around your house, like sheets or socks. There are tons of YouTube videos to teach different techniques. This kit is good because there are a bunch of colors to pick from.
Harry Potter Merch
Harry Potter fans are forever and you can practically find anything Harry Potter these days. You have a ton to choose from. I linked to one of the newer illustrated books they have now. The first book is such an easy read and this one makes it even more exciting.
You don’t have to be a lacrosse player to have these fun sticks. They are perfect for summer and beach trips with the family.
I don’t think kids ever stop playing with these. The teen boys in my neighborhood are still having Nerf wars.
We have this exact one and all my kids play with it all the time. They make up their own songs or find a song on youtube and sing away.
This is such a fun game.
Both my boys have something similar to display their medals for wrestling and baseball. If your tween plays sports, then this is great to have hanging in their room.
Tween boys love anything remote. These are small and inexpensive and the boys can fly them by themselves.
My boys love playing this with their Grandma.
These are perfect for day trips, sleep overs, and sports.
These are so much fun. You see older men using them at the beach all the time, but they are fun to mess around with in your yard too. I bet you have a lot of nails in your yard you didn’t know about.
I don’t know about you but all my kids go through headphones like crazy! They are always smashed in their backpack, one side isn’t working correctly or the cord is frayed.
Now that my boys are older, I can’t tell you how many times he and I have used a pocket knife. It really comes in handy when opening boxes and other random things you don’t even think about, My son plays lacrosse and is always using one when he’s stringing up his stick.
I tried to get different price ranges and ideas. Hope you found something you can give your tween boy! Let me know if you have anything I can add to the list.
