As a girly mom you would think that I would have difficulty with providing gift ideas for a boy who is between the ages of ten and twelve. What could I possibly understand about being a sporty guy? But I spend a lot of time with my son who will soon be turning ten and I’ve learned that boys his age mostly want action packed stuff. They don’t want time to talk too much unless it’s to talk about something athletic. Just to make sure I wasn’t stereotyping I decided to ask my son point blank what he would want for his tenth birthday. Here is what he said: video games, board games, ipod or mp3 player, computer or a new pet.
It was a nice expansive variety of gift ideas to choose from. So here are a few links if you decide you would like to give your tween guy one of the above mentioned gifts.
For video games, log on to: www.gamestop.com or www.target.com
For board games: www.boardgames.com, www.walmart.com, or www.target.com
For an ipod or mp3: www.bestbuy.com
For pets, I actually believe this is a really great gift especially during the tween years. There is an opportunity for the tween boy to learn a great deal of responsibility. I urge pet adoption. Go to www.adoptapet.com or www.petfinder.com. Or let your friends and family know you are looking to adopt a pet. They may actually know of someone who is looking for a home for a loving pet.
One thing my son didn’t mention that I think would really make him happy would be tickets to any WWE event. You can order through www.wwe.com/tickets.
