Making children happy is a blessing, but it can be difficult to do this when you want to choose a gift. Gifts for 13 Year old boys are hard to find from the first, simply because they are no longer small children, but not yet passionate teenagers.
You are wondering what is the best choice, and how you can make sure that a boy’s special occasion will turn into an unforgettable memory? Then check out these gift options!
A drone. Now, for the last couple of years drones became incredibly popular, and many adults and children would love to play with one. There are different types that you can choose, from budget friendly ones that only have a few minutes of flying times, to expensive ones that can even take pictures or stream live videos. Make sure that you add to the gift a flying guide, instructions on how to use the drone and batteries if necessary.
A cool watch. And here I’m not talking about just any watch, I am talking about a smart one. One of the best gifts for 13 year old boys are smart watches, as they are not only very popular on the market, but also a great replacement for a phone. It is not as easy to lose as a smartphone, not as distracting when it comes to homework and study and definitely not as expensive. It is, however, a gadget that will be highly appreciated!
A skateboard. It is important for teenagers to be active and play sports as often as they can, but you don’t see many of them jogging around the neighborhood. Skateboarding is the next best thing, simply because it’s fun, easy, healthy and it will help them make friends and spend pleasant time outdoors. If the boy did not ride a skateboard before, you might also consider buying protective gear, just so he doesn’t get any injuries.
A board game. Young boys generally prefer to play with their friends, so a board game is a great source of fun in those days when they have to stay indoors. Make sure that you pick one that can have many players at the same time, and that does not have very complicated rules. Also, if you want to make things even more interesting, you can make by yourself a few cardboards with some fun challenges that need to be completed by the ones who lose the game.
A chemistry set. Of course, I don’t mean a real, dangerous one. There are chemistry sets appropriate for children that come with fun, but not dangerous substances and equipment. Even so, it should only be used under the strict supervision of an adult, and it should come with protective gear and instructions. Make sure you let the parents know what your gift is, so they can establish safe rules with their child.
A book. Yes, we know that not many young boys have the patience to read, but there are books that will get their attention from the first, and it will stay in their mind and soul forever.
In order to make the birthday boy interested in ready the book, write a card saying that this book remind you of him, and that he will find many interesting things related to him in the book. He will definitely be curious to read it, and intrigued to find out how others see him. Besides, his parents will definitely be happy that you convinced him to read an entire book!
Any of these choices are good, but it depends on the preferences, personality and style of the birthday boy. Make sure that you discuss with his parents before buying any of these gifts!
