How to Select a Gift for a 10-Year-Old Boy


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
  • Music
  • 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.
