Looking for Some Fun Christmas Gift Ideas Your Son Will Love?


If you're anything like me, you're asking yourself... "What the heck do I get my son for Christmas this year? He already has everything, and I'm not spending thousands of dollars on big electronics!" When I asked my son what he wanted for Christmas this year he spouted off some things like "A PS5, the new iPhone and a laptop."


Well buddy, don't we all want those things for Christmas, lol.


Then, he gave more some more realistic options.


I've managed to put together a list of items that are fun for boys in the age range of 9-13. The list varies on age, so just use your judgement on what you think your kid would like. I know around our house we can't always afford those big expensive electronics, especially when we have more than 1 child to buy for. Plus to me, I love Christmas morning being about fun things that the kids can actually use their hands with! Toys, board games, scooters, basketball hoops, new clothes, outdoor toys... things to get them active! And you know, the occasional PlayStation game because, why not?


So, when reading this list, you're going to see there aren't a bunch of computers, phones and other big electronic gadgets. I've added a few small electronics so they can feel like they're getting SOME of that! Also, if you have a child that loves gaming, I've added some cool accessories for gamers.


If you're looking for some fun gifts your son will love that don't involve just screen time, I think you will like this list! It's just a mixture of everything!


I love doing my Christmas Shopping on Amazon because I can read tons and tons of reviews before I buy something. Most of everything on this list is from Amazon for that reason.


I hope you find something on this list that interests you!


Here is My List of 56 Gift Ideas for Your Son This Holiday Season!



#1 A Sports Box Subscription

I wanted to start with this because I know how big Youth Sports is right now. My son plays basketball and it's a big deal around our house. When I found this subscription box, I was so excited because it's really unique. If your son is into sports, definitely check this out. They have a box for many ages and sports and send training items and other fun items related to the sport. From basketball to baseball to soccer and more! My kids love it and I think it's a great company. If you're looking for something unique, this makes a great gift!

#8 LED Strip Lights

I got these for my 12-year-old son last year for Christmas, and we put them at the very top of his wall (almost touching ceiling) and then wrapped around his entire room. He LOVES them. They're super easy to put up as they have a sticky backing. They come with a remote so you can change light colors, speed and settings. It's probably one of my favorite things about his bedroom now. Here we are a year later and going strong!
