How to choose the best Christmas presents for boys

When thinking of something to give to your son, nephew, younger brother or grandson, have a look at their existing hobbies and see if you can add anything to them. Some boys are sporty, some love reading and some like to build things all day.

You could look at whether they favour a particular type of toy or genre. Once you have an idea, then you can start looking at potential “hot” toys in that area. Here’s a tip: superhero gifts tend to go down well. Find out what they like and then you have something to work with.

Alternatively, you can think of your intentions for what your gift will provide for the boy:

  • If you’d like him to spend more time outdoors and less time indoors staring at screens, then you might consider buying him an outdoor game or a sports kit.
  • If you’d like him to focus on teamwork, patience and problem solving, a board game that he can play with siblings, friends or family is one idea.
  • If you know he’s just finished his favourite book from his favourite series, then perhaps get him another series from the same author or genre. Has he read all the Harry Potter books yet?
  • The same concept applies to computer games and technology – getting him the latest version or update will also work in your favour.
