NEED HELP: Christmas Gift Ideas 4 my 2 sons!

Recommended Posts

I have two sons, a 5 year old and a 6 1/2 year old and I'm in some help for Christmas gift ideas for them. As most boys their age, they're really into superhero stuff but I feel like they already have so much of that at my house that it wouldn't be that special for them. They're also starting to get into gaming, although their mother and I limit just how much time they get to do that kind of stuff during the week. I already found out that my parents have stolen one of my ideas to get them each a PSP so that option no longer exists. My youngest is sort of a LEGO kid but not quite sure which one would knock his socks off. So anyway, please help!

My son is only three, but he has shown a great interest in photography (or just playing with our camera and taking photos!) We are getting him one of those kid tough cameras.

I have four nephews, but they're all 3 & 1 years old.

Would this work? It's Batman lego! :)

Hey paraisobeachbride2009!

Thanks for that link. I didn't even know LEGO did so much Batman stuff, they sure have branches out a lot since when I was a kid. That's definitely a great idea since my youngest loves both!

Thanks

My youngest is the same way. My ex is actually getting him a digital camera so he can play with it. He's always asking to use hers so he can take photos of random things.

Do your boys like to read/look at books at all? I've become known as the "aunt who gives boooks", and am always ready to reccommend if given the chance.

 

You mentioned they like superheroes. There is a series of books (reccommended for 6-8, but I've seen younger boys read them depending on their comprehension leel) called Captain Underpants. Not all parents are fond of them, but I think they're hilarious, and in my opinion, if they're getting kids to read, they can't be all bad.

 

Amazon.com: The New Captain Underpants Collection: Box Set (Books 1-5): Dav Pilkey: Books

 

If those aren't quite your cup of tea, there are also two other series that I would reccommend, Geronimo Stilton ( Amazon.com: Lost Treasure of the Emerald Eye (Geronimo Stilton, No. 1): Geronimo Stilton: Books ), which are kind of comedy adventure stories, and The Magic Tree House ( Amazon.com: Magic Tree House Boxed Set, Books 1-4: Dinosaurs Before Dark, The Knight at Dawn, Mummies in the Morning, and Pirates Past Noon: Mary Pope Osborne, Sal Murdocca: Books ), which I actually found myself reading out of pure curiosity during my shifts at the bookstore I used to work at.

 

Then there would be my personal favourite, anything Star Wars related. There are a lot of story books and informative books available in the children's sections of the book stores right now, full of great pictures (I know, I have a bunch of them in my personal collection blush2.gif )

 

 

Oh, and going back to the Lego that someone mentioned in an earlier post, there are Lego video games available (Lego Batman, Lego Indiana Jones, and Lego Star Wars), and let me tell you, they are FABULOUS. I love the Lego Batman, my husband and I are still playing through it.

 

Happy Shopping!
