At last, it’s gift ideas for tween boys time! We’ve found gifts to sort the teen girls, teen boys and tween girls and here we are buying for adolescent boys. They are a tough crowd to buy for, let me tell you.

If they’re sporty, they’ve already got all the sporting equipment they’ll ever need.

If they’re readers, they’ve already ploughed through the Andy Griffiths / David Wailliams / Anh Do standbys.

If they’re not readers or sporty types, then you’re in real trouble. Tween boys are hard work… I mean, to buy for. But also hard work in general.

This list contains all gift ideas for tween boys I could conjure up with a little help from my kids. I also kept in mind my favourite fantasy-child, who is into STEM and enjoys being with others.

All the lists are here:

1. Watch Ya Mouth 90S Edition Party Card Game


This is just the kind of random fun that tween boys go crazy for. It seems almost like a reminder: I don’t know about you, but I find myself saying “Watch your mouth” to my son fairly regularly?

Get it at The Amazon

2. Wild Science Ant Jungle


This AntColony kit requires a small level of care (so that’s good!). It’s sort of like the ultimate pet. The ants build a colony and your son gets to play his part in their survival. Ants are fascinating, and much less time consuming than a dog…

Get it at Amazon.

3. Ravensburger 76303 Thinkfun Rush Hour Junior Game

A small word of warning: I got Rush Hour for my son a couple of years back and I became obsessed with it. Could. Not. Stop. Playing. It was way more fun than an actual traffic jam, let me tell you. I’ve since been banned outright from going anywhere near the game – the wheels were starting to fall off the housework and I was so behind on my Netflix bingeing. I’ll bet your son will love it.

Get it at Amazon.

4. Fantastic Beasts 

I helped out at our school’s book fair recently and THIS was the book all the year 6 boys were queuing up for. JK Rowling is a sure thing.

Get it at Amazon.

5. GraviTrax Starter Kit

How good does this look!!!!! (I’m starting to believe I may be a tween boy trapped in a middle-aged mother’s body.) Forget all the logical puzzle solving, fine-motor, brainiac benefits of Gravitrax and just get it because it’s awesome. Mind you, I don’t think this middle-aged mother needs this game to ‘experience the power of gravity’, thank you very much.

Get it at Amazon.

6. Mini Drone, Potensic A20 RC Nano Quadcopter

Drones are 59 bucks? Who knew!? It’s just a matter of time before they are delivering our take away… Look, I know absolutely nothing about drones, but this one has nice colours and it looks like it would go okay.

Get it at Amazon. 

7. GoSports Slammo Game Set

AKA as ‘round ball’ Slammo is volley ball’s latest incarnation. Frankly, I don’t think volleyball gets enough air time. This version is a super-fast, super-fun game for one, two, four or more players. You can set it up and play pretty much anywhere

Get it at Amazon.

8. Viper Vault Cabinet & Shot King Sisal

Darts is the kind of thing that most homes had in the eighties because there wasn’t a lot to do before the internet. Now, if your boy had a dart board, you could just say “get off that screen and go and play darts”. He’ll roll his eyes and complain loudly of boredom and how darts are stupid and unnecessary (just as we all did in the eighties), but will soon find himself up to dart throw number 326 with a smile on his face, because playing darts is like that.

Get it at Amazon.

9. Fitness tracker

He’ll want an Apple watch and you’ll palm him off with this Garmin, but the $300 price difference will make his ungrateful, sad face completely bearable.

Get it at Amazon.

10. Lounging space

That’s right, you’re basically giving him permission to lounge around doing nothing. Sorry about that.

Get it at Amazon.
