Finding a gift for that special 10-year-old in your life can give you a chance to check out what's old and new in toy land.
Things You'll Need
- Bookstore/music Gift Certificates
- Birthday Cards
- Children/teen Gift Certificates
- Movie Tickets
- Savings Bonds
- School Supplies
- Children's Software
- Child's Logic Games
- Child's Spy Tool Kit
Consider the boy in question: Does he like music? Taking things apart? Computer games? Reading?
Look for a gift that's likely to mesh with his interests. Talk to a salesclerk if you're at a loss.
Take another route and trust you instincts: Go for a spy tool kit or a logic skills game.
Be practical and shop for clothes or school supplies, or buy a bond for his education fund.
Check with the parents if you're stuck. They'll know best what's likely to please him - and they'll also know what he already has.
Plan an excursion: Take him to a cave, the movies or an amusement park. You'll get one-on-one time and his parents will get a little break.
Go for a gift certificate if you're short on time - he'll get the pleasure of picking out his own present.
Tips & Warnings
- Make sure whatever you choose can be returned and avoid contributing to that pile of unused items in the basement.
- Make sure your gift is safe by reading packaging and warning labels carefully.
