gift guide for bigger boys

Over the next couple of weeks I will be sharing gift guides for many of the people on your list.  I swear gift guides are one of my most favorites thing of the holiday season.  Someone else does all the hard work and you end up giving the best gifts.  I love them!  I have a simple rule in my house when it comes to wish lists.  The list must include something you want, something you need, something to wear and something to read.  All of my gift guides will include at least one item from each category.

I decided to collaborate with real live kids for a few of the guides.  First up, a gift guide for a bigger boy.  You will notice that this list has expanded beyond JUST toys {Most likely for boys ages 9-12}.

1.  Nerf Mega Thunder Bow Blaster – No boy has enough Nerf weaponry!

2.  Guardians of the Galaxy: Aweome Mix , Vol. 1 –   Gift a CD or digital album of this awesome mix tape!  The music is an old school groove.

3.  Dakine Campus Pack – This falls into the NEED category.  Most boys this age need a larger pack.  Books and binders are larger and take up more room.

4.  KD Essential Basketball Court – It is something to WEAR.  It is what all the cool kids are wearing.  Shorts in the middle of winter are 100% appropriate.

5.  GoPro-Hero – And this is the IT item.  A video camera to catch all your crazy action.  {GoPro finally priced a camera at an entry level price point.  YAY!}

6.  Survivor Kid: A Practical Guide to Wilderness Safety – I know that not every boy is into wilderness survival.  However, if they are this guide looks awesome!

7.  Maze Runner: Audio Book – Boys seem to love audio books.  Push play, lay back, relax and enjoy.  {This would require a CD player!}

8.  Pokemon Alpha Sapphire – A new game out for the Nintendo 3DS.

9.  Cold Hard Cash – no link required.  Boys this age love money in their pocket.  Money = Freedom.  You can’t go wrong.

10.  LEGO-Ultra Agents Mission HQ – They still love ’em!

Left off my gift guide, but on Big W’s list is Beats by Dre Solo 2 Headphones and a Microsoft Xbox One.  He insisted that I add this!

PS:  My printable wish list template from last year.  Just download and print.
