The best places to buy online gifts for boys has gotten harder as the internet has grown and filled up with abundant choices. And every year my son’s taste for gifts seems to get more and more expensive. Do you remember when your kid was excited to get a box full of Duct Tape? Or a Christmas stocking stuffed with dollar store trinkets? Not anymore. This is year, after all my boys birthdays had passed, I became determined to take notes of the things that they said were “really cool” and start looking.
I am not sure where to start. There are more options than you can ever new imagine. The first on the list is at the top because all three of my sons constantly ask me, Mrs. Santa Claus, to get them a gift from here. Drum roll please, tada, Loot Crate!
If you don’t know Loot Crate you need to take a look. There are several box options for your modern child. From Anime to Gaming boxes and now they offer a Sport Crate that features many of your popular baseball teams.
The best idea is to buy a gift certificate. Plus there are never any due dates or late fees. Which is great because my $1.50 movie rental at a certain movie rental “Box” ended up costing about $15 because we were late. There are many features that I like about Gamefly. The kid can test drive a game or beat the game and be done with it. Have you bought a $60 game only for your kids to beat it in a week or two and never touch the game again? You can also rent movies. Are you liking them already? There is more: if your family likes the game that was requested, you can keep it. You just buy it for the used price which can be anywhere from $7.99 to around $36. It all depends on the game.
That’s right. More gaming and techie toys. This is one of my “go to” sites for gifts for boys. They have robots from basic to not so basic, many Pikachu items too. My favorite being the Pikachu Coin Bank. Did I mention the Death Star Model?
Snoopslimes.com SLIME! I thought that fad had died away but the younger kids are still making this gooey stuff. If you have a slime fan you have to visit Snoopslimes. There many slimes and floams to choose from but my favorite is Dragon's Egg.
This not a store but their well researched recommendations will help you find techie toys and games. That is how the LEGO Boost Creative Box was discovered and has been added to our Christmas buying list.
That’s right, the Dollar Shave Club which by the way is not a dollar but they have a quality product line. All three of my boys, especially my 14 year olds friends, are very curious about the Dollar Shave Club and want to try the products out. I am embarrassed to say that there were big laughs over the One Wipe Charlie to be used in the bathroom, if you know what I mean. There is a gift option available.
Bella Luna has beautiful natural gifts for younger children. However, I did find the perfect gift for the older person in your house that enjoys building but has less time than they used to. A 100 piece octocolor block set is not like any other block set I have seen before.
Last but not least is Etsy! This is where you can find unique one of a kind gifts and I will say that buying a gift from Etsy seems more personal. Unfortunately during my browsing I ran across a few ads that were selling questionable items. I really liked this cell phone docking stand that also has areas for keys, glasses, etc. designed by SkyWoodStudio. It is made from wood and you can customize it. Do you have a gamer that plays Nintendo Switch? They might like the Nintendo Switch video game case from RookesWorkshop. Shopping on Etsy is easy. In the search box type in what your little man likes and voilà, the perfect gift appears.
You will love these unique online places to buy gifts for your boys. It is going to make Christmas gift giving much easier and less time consuming. Well, hopefully. To make shopping a little easier here is your complimentary Christmas Gift List. Just “click” here.
