Mama OWL Blog: A Tween Christmas Gift Guide

A Tween Christmas Gift Guide

Wednesday, 4 December 2013

Shopping for five kids for Christmas is a taxing task in more ways than one. I must say that choosing things for E has been much easier than shopping for teenagers, and then there are the tweens. L has very specific likes & dislikes and picking things for him has been relatively easy. Poor H on the other hand still has a good chunk of his budget left & I really need to step it up.

I've had a look around the 'net and wanted to share my findings with a Christmas gift guide especially for a tween boy, for anyone else who might be struggling to find that perfect gift. H is 8 and mad about the outdoors, vehicles and construction so these gifts are ideal for him.

Under £10

Boots have a great selection of toys for under a tenner as well as offering 3 for 2 mix & match across a wide range of products. This NERF Firestrike Elite Blaster is just £8 and would be very well received by H who thoroughly enjoys NERF battles with his brothers & sisters (I say battles - more him sneaking up on them and catching them unarmed & unawares!). This NERF toy is suitable for ages 8+ & comes with 3 elite darts.

I also love this classic Connect 4 game from Boots, it was a favourite of mine as a kid and H is very much into playing games as a family so this would be a winner for him and at £9.99 it's a bargain, too. Suitable for two players, aged 6 & up.

Under £30

The Meccano Pro Toolbox from Debenhams is suitable for age 6+ & includes 8 buildable models (tools & building instructions for 3 models) with an engine to make your creations move. H is very hands-on & loves to create, so this set would provide endless fun and possibilities, all contained within a handy storage case. It currently has 20% off & is available for just £22.40, and you could save even more by checking for promotions.

Flair Micro Chargers Time Track from Debenhams also looks like it
would appeal to H, with a track that you can reconfigure into multiple formations and four lane race action meaning he can play it with his siblings or friends.
At the moment it has a massive 40% off & is just £21.60. Suitable for age 6 years +. have the LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™ Shredder's Dragon Bike for £25, and with a discount code available for first orders there is potential for more savings. A big fan of TMNT and a collector of LEGO this 198pc set ticks all the boxes for H, and is suitable for ages 6-12 years.

Under £50

Amazon have the LeapFrog LeapPad2 Power for £46.66 and there is also free delivery available. H loves to learn and the capabilities for this ePad are limitless, with expansion available through downloading apps, music, books, videos and more or by purchasing additional gaming cartridges. This is a great - and safe - electronic learning tablet for kids, with downloads available from the pre-approved library.

An enjoyer of the great outdoors (whatever the weather), H loves nothing more than to zip around on his scooter. His has seen better days, and I have heard him mention the JD Bug Pro Scooter before when perusing the Christmas toy catalogues. At £49.95 from Amazon it's very reasonably priced and has great reviews. Suitable for age 7+ it's said to be good for learning tricks on as well as being sturdy & durable.
