Buying Gifts for Preteen Boys

Welcome to the pre-teen years! As the mom of 4 kids, ranging in age from 7-13, I can say that gift ideas for 10-year old boys can be especially challenging. I know that its tough to come up with gift ideas for this age range. That's why I put together this article to help parents, guardians and relatives.

Generally speaking, kids this age are truly in between childhood and young adulthood. While they may still have juvenile interests, many are transitioning toward more grown-up desires - mostly with respect to technology and entertainment.

Before you head to the shopping mall, or browse the Internet, know your gift recipient. Some 10-year old boys still have strong interests in specific characters (e.g. Harry Potter or Percy Jackson) or specific sports teams or leagues. Kids that have older siblings may have slightly more mature tastes than those that are the oldest in the family. Another key suggestion is to be sure to try to talk to your 13-year old first. Trust me, they are not always forthcoming when it comes to gift ideas, but you might be surprised what you will learn just by putting forth a few simple questions.

I've grouped a range of gift ideas for 10-year old boys into several categories below: (1) sports; (2) technology; (3) practical gifts; (4) gaming ideas and (5) entertainment. You should be able to find an appropriate gift for a preteen boy here... or at least get a good start on ideas!

Happy shopping!

What Interests Your 10-Year Old Boy?

Sports Gift Ideas for 10-Year Old Boys

My sons love sports! When its football season, they love football. And, when its baseball season, they love baseball.

My 10-year old son is a loyal fan - no matter if his team is winning or losing, he cheers them on. On the other hand, my 13-year old follows the top teams.

If you are shopping for a preteen boy that is a sports enthusiast, consider these sports gift ideas:

  • Team football jerseys
  • Sports equipment (balls, bats, mitts, helmets, hoops, goals, etc.)
  • Sports memorabilia (trading cards, signed balls and/or posters)
  • Brand-name T-shirts - my son likes Nike and Adidas
  • Team pennants
  • Fathead room decals (giant, life-sized stickers of your favorite athlete)
  • Team emblazoned room décor items - wastepaper baskets, sheets, pillows, bedspreads and much more
  • Tuition for youth sports camps or programs - Pee Wee Football, Little League baseball, etc.

Gaming Gift Ideas for 10-Year Old Boys

There are many gaming systems offered for kids of all ages, and even more games available with new ones coming out each year!

At our home, the kids have Nintendo DS consoles (handheld game system), as well as an Xbox 360. Many of their friends own Wii systems and/or Sony PS3. There are also games you can play on your computer and applications to download to phones.

Experts say that new game consoles will not be offered until 2013. So, your best bet right now is to consider adding to individual game collections.

Before you purchase a new video game for a 10-year old boy, check the ratings. Games rated "M" for mature often include violence and/or sexual themes. Even games with a "T" rating for teen may not be appropriate for a 10-year old boy. If in doubt, ask a salesperson or read online reviews.

Popular gaming gift ideas for 10-year old boys include:

  • New versions of NCAA, NFL, NBA and MLB sports games
  • Lego games (Harry Potter Lego, Lego Batman, Indiana Jones Lego, Lego Star Wars, etc.)
  • Mario games
  • Backyard sports games (Backyard baseball, Backyard football, etc.)
  • Movie-themed games (Harry Potter, Batman, Disney movies and more)
  • Rock band games
  • Dance dance revolution
  • Scribblenauts

Entertainment Gift Ideas for 10-Year Old Boys

Beyond video games and sports, 10-year old boys enjoy movies and some even like to read (yes, shocking, isn't it?) Each year for Christmas, I get my boys at least one new book and usually a DVD movie, as well.

Not sure what's hot this year? Consider this list:

  • Harry Potter movies
  • Harry Potter books - still popular after many years
  • Percy Jackson book series by Rick Riordan
  • The Seekers book series by Erin Hunter
  • Dragon Slayers Academy series by Kate McMullan
  • Chronicles of Narnia series
  • D.J. MacHale's Pendragon series
  • Children cookbooks (yes, even boys like to cook!)

Tech Gift Ideas for 10-Year Old Boys

Most preteen boys are into tech gifts. At the top of the list for my 10-year old son this year is a cell phone! He really just wants to be able to text his friends, but I'm sure a new iPhone would be a huge hit (dream on, Joe...)

Depending on your budget, there are many gadgets you could consider when shopping for gifts for 10-year old boys.

Keep in mind that not all boys will take good care of these items that can easily become lost or broken:

  • iPod Nano
  • iPod Touch
  • Other mP3 players and accessories
  • Laptop computer - many inexpensive notebook versions available
  • Cell phone - you don't have to go with the new iPhone4! There are basic models that still allow for easy texting available for less than $50 with generous rebates (hint: go for an unlimited texting plan to avoid a shockingly high cell phone bill)

Traditional Gift Ideas for 10-Year Old Boys

Although you might think that 10-year old boys are only interested in sports and video games, there are some traditional gifts that are always a hit with this age group.

From my experience, preteen boys often appreciate the following traditional gifts, as well:

  • Monopoly games - many varieties of the classic board game
  • Clue board game
  • Playing cards
  • Themed Lego sets (some very complex and expensive sets out there too)
  • Scrabble game
  • Spy ware
  • Nerf guns/accessories or Nerf balls
  • Roller blades
  • Bicycles
  • Scooters
  • Other sports equipment - snowboarding, wakeboarding, sledding, etc.
  • Trampolines

Don't forget other items that may be required for some of these gifts. Helmets, gloves, boots, bindings, even batteries!

Gift Cards are Always an Option!

Sometimes you just cannot figure out what gift to get for a 10-year old boy. Fortunately, at this age, many kids are eager to go shopping to pick out their own presents. When you give a gift card, they can sometimes get a great deal with post-holiday discounts, or even combine gift cards to get a more expensive gift on their list.

Many retailers offer gift cards in a range of dollar amounts (generally $25-$100). My son likes gift cards from Target, Old Navy, Wal-Mart, Game Stop, and a variety of sports stores. Since he owns an iPod, my 10-year old is always excited to get iTunes cards that allow him to choose new music for his device.

Be sure to check the fine print regarding potential expiration of gift cards. You'll also want to make sure that the gift card doesn't accidentally get tossed in the trash along with wrapping paper and envelopes!

Where are you going to shop for gifts this year?

        My ten year olds loved growing The Zombie Plant- the only plant that plays dead when you touch it and then comes back to life. Search The Zombie Plant Grow Kit. I mentioned in an earlier post that these were a great way to excite a ten year old about nature and gardening. Just search online to see a video. as The Zombie Plant Grow Kit is very popular.

        My son is turning 10 on Sunday. Even though I have his gift neatly wrapped and ready, I am interested to know what is the ongoing trend for this age group. I loved your suggestions. In the book category I would like to recommend the Suzanne Collins triology which is a big hit with the boys. Thank you for your ideas. Superb!

        I pod touch is nice idea and if you are afraid of it I'll till you nothing is dangerous just you have to take note of your child when he got it something changed in him or not and I suggest you if you are bringing an iPod touch for your. Son don't lit him play on it for more than 2hours in a day and avoid crime games I think we should let them try as they are entering a preteens age good luck in gifts and merry crismas

        i totally disagree about not giving a ipod to a 10 year old!!my son got his on his 10th birthday!!He did love it and he does take really good care of it!!I think all depending on each kid!! Have an friend that have an 12 yo and got his ipod stolen at school so maybe parents should be warning about this and pass to their kids!!There are many kids that wants a ipod so probably will be easily if they take from someone that have already since their parents cant afford it!i pod is really fun for kids and adults! just make sure you lock some site and never tell than any of password because if you dont you will ending having a huge bill!!Have a great holidays guys!!!

        I agree, don't discount all 10 year olds. My son is 10, he saved his money and paid for most of the iPod touch himself. We paid for about 1/4th of it for his birthday. He takes care of it, but we also remember that we are parents and he's not allowed to take it to school, etc. He doesn't pick it up unless he asks, much like his gaming systems and anything else. He loves it. But now we don't know what to do for Christmas!

        Re: 10 year old boy and an iPod Touch

        No, I don't necessarily think 10 is too young for an iPod touch - my oldest Nephew saved and bought himself an iPod Touch in the summer as he loves the apps for it. He can also take photos with it, which he likes. He will be 11 in November and is looking forward to receiving an iTunes voucher so he can move beyond the free apps!

        Do I think they're for every 10 year old boy? Absolutely not! I know of many who would not treat it with the care it needs. But my Nephew can absolutely be trusted with it and knows exactly how to handle it. But then his 8 year old brother does too...and my 6 and 5 year old Nephews know how to handle my iPhone with care too...and even the 3 year old knows not to be rough with it...so maybe we just lucked out on the kid front in our family!

        To summarise a very long post - yeah, I do think an iPod Touch might be an appropriate gift for a 10 year old. Don't discount all 10 year olds just yet, there are some responsible ones out there!

        For a 10yo boy, really, a IPOD? I hope all of you out there have a very responsible son that doesn't lose things because IPODS are not cheap!! I am so against buying these expensive toys at such an early age. What next?

        For a ten year-old boy, something sporty is the best gift that you can give them. Most especially if the signature of their favorite baseball player is printed on it.

        Hi Nell - thanks! I have to admit, I included some of the board games above because I like playing them too (Scrabble in particular) - though both my 10-year old and 13-year old play a mean game! We really enjoy family game nights. Best, Steph

        Ha - yes, and he definitely believes he's an expert on 10-year old gifts. ;-) I just added another item that I had forgotten (*gasp*): Nerf guns and Nerf balls.

        I'm not surprised at how appropriate these gifts are for 10-year-olds, steph. After all, you have a 10-year-old consultant on hand to advise you.
