The Best Gifts for Elementary-Aged Boys
- Nerf N-Strike Elite – a perfect, classic boy gift! And a great gift for nephew or friend. Under $15! Although I heard a mom recently say that she started pushing up her boys’ bedtimes by 10 minutes every nerf bullet she found laying around the house. So if you want to get this gift, but have nightmares of nerf bullets everywhere, there you go! Problem solved. 😉
- Football Building Blocks – Football and building blocks? What’s not to love??
- Customize Baseball Wall Art – For the boy who has his room decked out in baseball trophies, this sign will encourage him to keep playing the game!

- Kids Detective Set – This detective kids is perfect for the boy who loves an investigation or a good mystery! And bonus – it’ll keep them busy for hours! (You’re welcome, moms.)
- HedBanz Game – My daughter thinks this game is so fun and loves to play it with her friends, both girls and boys. So it’s a great game for keeping them occupied for a while and not looking at screens! Although there is an app version called “Heads Up!” for your phone and we saw people playing this in line at Disney all the time. A great way to pass the time in the car or in lines!
