Top 25 gifts for a boy for the New Year

When choos­ing a gift, be sure to focus on the age of the boy. Too adult or, on the con­trary, too child­ish sur­prise will spoil the impres­sion of the hol­i­day.

3–5 years

1. Tent

Col­or­ful hous­es made of fab­ric, plas­tic and oth­er mate­ri­als cause gen­uine delight in chil­dren. Buy a boy a soft Indi­an teepee or a medieval fortress and let him feel like a real knight or leader of the red­skins.

2. Constructor

A time­less clas­sic gift for a lit­tle boy. And this has its own rea­son. The assem­bly of the design­er ll devel­ops the baby’s imag­i­na­tion, his think­ing, mem­o­ry and fine motor skills.

3. Toy railroad

Chil­dren are inter­est­ed in learn­ing the prin­ci­ples of move­ment, so a toy rail­road with a bat­tery-pored train is a great gift option for a boy. And to make it even more inter­est­ing, choose a road with as many inter­sec­tions, tun­nels and sta­tions as pos­si­ble.

4. A set of baked clay

A set of blocks of poly­mer clay in dif­fer­ent col­ors may ll be the begin­ning of a big hob­by for a boy. The devel­op­ment of imag­i­na­tion, cre­ative vein, fine motor skills, and at the end — also a won­der­ful prod­uct with your own hands.

5. Magician’s set

6–8 years old

6. Sports complex

The love for sports is instilled from child­hood. Give the boy a small sports cor­ner with a hor­i­zon­tal bar, rings, a rope and a rope lad­der, choos­ing a pack­age accord­ing to your own dis­cre­tion and inte­ri­or pos­si­bil­i­ties.

A won­der­ful sur­prise for the most inquis­i­tive. Chil­dren’s ency­clo­pe­dia in an acces­si­ble form will intro­duce the child to the basics of chem­istry, physics, biol­o­gy and many oth­er sci­ences. And bright illus­tra­tions will make the cog­ni­tive process more visu­al and excit­ing.

10. Art set

Learn­ing geog­ra­phy will become much more fun with an inter­ac­tive globe. The sphere of the globe is locat­ed on a spe­cial stand with a touch con­trol mod­el. The device also comes with a pen-point­er. By touch­ing such a pen to dif­fer­ent points on the globe, you can get com­plete infor­ma­tion about the select­ed region: its land­scape, his­to­ry, cul­ture, pop­u­la­tion and much more.

13. Bicycle

Dur­ing the day, you can study the con­stel­la­tions and the bright­est stars on the map, and at night you can sim­ply admire its radi­ance. Such a map not only per­forms an edu­ca­tion­al func­tion, but also cre­ates a cos­mic atmos­phere in the room.

15. Magnetic darts

An excit­ing, and most impor­tant­ly, absolute­ly safe gift, because the darts are equipped with mag­net­ic heads, due to which they stick to a met­al tar­get. Per­fect­ly devel­ops accu­ra­cy, con­cen­tra­tion and improves eye­sight.

12–14 years old

16. Quest in reality

Quest

The bot­tom line is that the play­ers are placed in a cer­tain the­mat­i­cal­ly designed space. To get out, they need to com­plete a series of tasks, such as find­ing an object or solv­ing a puz­zle. Some quest rooms are styl­ized as a detec­tive or hor­ror, which makes the action even more poignant. Such a gift will pro­vide impres­sions for a long time.

17. Smart watch

Styl­ish mod­ern acces­so­ry, func­tion­al­ly rem­i­nis­cent of a full-fledged com­put­er. Many mod­els are con­trolled by oper­at­ing sys­tems and can replace an alarm clock, cal­cu­la­tor, fit­ness bracelet, MP3 play­er and many oth­er devices. The per­fect com­bi­na­tion of small dimen­sions and wide pos­si­bil­i­ties.

For the cold win­ter sea­son, a hood­ie or a sat­shirt with a hood is the most rel­e­vant gift. And if you show imag­i­na­tion and humor when choos­ing a print, then it is also very orig­i­nal.

19. Runaway alarm clock

It is rare for any­one to get up ear­ly in the morn­ing eas­i­ly. If the boy is not one of those lucky ones, then a run­ning alarm clock will be just the way for him. After the set timer is trig­gered, the device runs away and hides from the half-asleep own­er. Pret­ty fun gift.

20. Stylish smartphone case

The vari­ety of designs and col­ors of cas­es is tru­ly inex­haustible: movie and car­toon char­ac­ters, celebri­ties, fan­tas­tic land­scapes, abstract pat­terns… You can also order a com­plete­ly orig­i­nal case, tak­ing into account the inter­ests of the recip­i­ent. When choos­ing a case, keep in mind the boy’s smart­phone mod­el so as not to get into trou­ble.

15+ years

21. Headphones

The music lover will cer­tain­ly be delight­ed with the new head­set. Wired and wire­less, on-ear, wrap­around and in-ear head­phones — there are a lot of mod­els, but the main thing you should pay atten­tion to when buy­ing is sound qual­i­ty. Care­ful­ly study the tech­ni­cal para­me­ters of the head­set before mak­ing a choice.

22. Bean bag chair

It looks like a huge bag, in fact — a great way to relax. It usu­al­ly looks like a pear, but in our time, Peach, Lounger, Puck, Lim­ou­sine and many oth­er forms have gained pop­u­lar­i­ty. You will see, the bean bag chair will become a favorite rest­ing place for the boy.

23. Gyroscooter

This elec­tron­ic vehi­cle has not lost its pop­u­lar­i­ty late­ly. The gyro scoot­er con­sists of two con­nect­ed plat­forms for feet with wheels on the sides. The gift will def­i­nite­ly please a teenag­er. The main thing is to fol­low safe­ty rules when dri­ving. There­fore, com­plete with a gyro scoot­er, imme­di­ate­ly pur­chase pro­tec­tive equip­ment: a hel­met, knee pads and elbow pads.

24. Gym membership

Even if your teenag­er is not a big fan of fit­ness, a month­ly gym mem­ber­ship is a great chance to join the sport, strength­en the body and release excess ener­gy. Anoth­er gift option is a pool pass.

25. E‑book

If a teenag­er reads with rap­ture, sup­port his pas­sion by giv­ing him an elec­tron­ic read­er. Read­er mod­els dif­fer in tech­ni­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics, func­tion­al­i­ty and mem­o­ry capac­i­ty. There are gad­gets equipped with E‑ink (elec­tron­ic ink) screens. Such a screen imi­tates a paper page and is as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble for the eye. In addi­tion, this com­pact elec­tron­ic device is able to accom­mo­date a huge library with thou­sands of volu­mi­nous vol­umes of text. An avid book read­er will def­i­nite­ly appre­ci­ate such a gift.

How to choose a gift for a boy for the New Year

Sim­ple but effec­tive tips to help you choose a gift:

Get­ting ready for the hol­i­day

Advent cal­en­dar from “We”: every day a new sur­prise

  1. Give what the boy would like to receive. Per­haps the most obvi­ous advice. Chil­dren, and peo­ple in gen­er­al, often make it clear, direct­ly or indi­rect­ly, what they would like to receive as a gift. If you are aware of the boy’s New Year’s desire and you have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to ful­fill it, use it.
  2. Make a gift based on the hob­bies of the recip­i­ent. A young foot­ball play­er, for exam­ple, will be hap­py with a new ball or a book ded­i­cat­ed to his favorite sport. Such a sur­prise is also pleas­ant as a fact of show­ing atten­tion to one’s inter­ests.
  3. Do not give ordi­nary things. School clothes, bor­ing socks, bags, office sup­plies are the attrib­ut­es of every­day rou­tine. They do not feel inter­est in the gift­ed; there is no mag­ic that you are wait­ing for on New Year’s Eve. Such a gift will bring noth­ing but dis­ap­point­ment.
  4. The gift must be use­ful. Even in child­hood, boys appre­ci­ate the prac­ti­cal ori­en­ta­tion of things more than the visu­al, so do not expect to cause stormy joy with a beau­ti­ful fig­urine. But, for exam­ple, a set for grow­ing crys­tals — this is a more sub­stan­tive con­ver­sa­tion.
  5. New Year’s pack­ag­ing is still an impor­tant part of the over­all impres­sion of a gift, espe­cial­ly when it comes to a very small child. There­fore, approach the pack­ag­ing with soul and imag­i­na­tion.
