Best Gifts for Tomboys - My Favorite Ideas!
My Favorite Gifts for Tomboys
This is a collection of gift ideas for girls who are Tomboys. I was a tomboy and some of these ideas are things I actually got as a kid, or things I would have loved.
I was a girl who liked to do boy things. I didn't like girly things.
Whether the Tomboy that you are buying for likes sports, playing outside, or science, computers, nature, cars, construction, etc, I hope that you'll find the perfect gift on this page...
Gift Ideas by Category
Gifts for Girls who Build Things!
Build a Working Catapult - Great Construction Kit for Kids! - I wish this was available when I was a kid!
Build this catapult with real wood! The wood is pre-drilled and pre-cut. Have fun putting this together and firing marshmallows, play-dough balls, and other small things across the room!
Tomboys often like doing things with Dad. Construction projects like this one are a good Dad & Daughter activity!
Great Gift for Girls who Like Cars! - Build a race car, a crane, and more!
These look really cool. I never had too much interest in cars, but for some reason cranes intrigue me. Regardless, this looks like a metal construction set ideal for the pre-teen or teen Tomboy.
Build your own Pneumatic Hydraulic Engines! - Great science kit for kids ages 8+
This set allows you to build 15 models! It looks like a pretty comprehensive set!
I've always liked gears... I think gears are fun for many kids!
Build Solar Powered helicopter, car, bike, windmill, or oil derrick. - Put these together with screwdrivers and wrenches... and make things that go!
This is a toy that is suitable for ages 8 to well into the teens. Adults could even have fun with this one!
Sporty & Outdoorsy Gifts
Gift Ideas for Tomboys who are Wild or Active Outdoors, or Like Sports
A Scooter is a ton of fun! - I loved riding scooters with my friends!
A great gift idea is a scooter, skateboard, roller blades, or a bicycle.
This scooter is great for a wide range of ages - from age 4 all the way up to age 12 or so (up to 143 pounds). It's fun to use and comes in many different colors. It folds up for easy storage or transportation.

Basketball Hoop for my Driveway - This was on my wish list for many years... Never did get one though.
Shooting hoops is fun! It's a great activity for kids. It's an outdoor sport that can be played with just one or two people, or a whole bunch of kids. Great for the long summer days, and for parties. If you'd rather your kids stayed around the house, setting up a basketball hoop is one way to keep the kids busy!
This one is ideal for kids under 12. Amazon has other ones for older kids.
My Own Tent - Great for Family Camping Trips - This one person tent appeals to kids and teens because they like privacy!
Camping outside, whether in the backyard or at an official campground, is a fun activity! I had a one person tent like this one, and my parents allowed me to set it up next to their tent when we went camping. It made me feel so grown-up, and made me much happier about going on family camping trips.
All I wanted for my birthday was.... A Pocket Knife! - My Mom said I could have one as long as it "locked" so it wouldn't close on my hand!
*** This gift idea depends on the age and maturity of the kid or teen. ***
I got one like this one when I turned 12. It was a very memorable gift. I carved some wood with it, but mostly I just carried it around when I walked in the woods or went bike riding.
I wanted it so bad... I remember picking it out at the hardware shop with my Dad. Of all of the birthday presents I don't remember, this isn't one of them!
Unfortunately, I don't have it anylonger... Just the memory of it. Somewhere between moves, it disappeared.
Nerdy or Geeky Gifts
Gift ideas for girls who like science, computers, or gadgets.
Electronics Kit for Kids - No Soldering Needed! - Make over 300 Projects, including a Radio, Doorbell, & Burglar Alarm
I had an electronics kit, although not as clever as this one appears to be. This one is for ages 8+. This is a great gift idea for a nerdy or geeky Tomboy, or any girl that loves electronics.
Do they love computers? Maybe they'd like to program! - Learning to program is a lot of fun, and this book will get them started!
There is something very rewarding about writing a program that works. Programming is a great skill to learn. I was really into it when I was about 14, and having them learn to program is one of the better ways for them to spend their computer time.
This gift guide has become so popular that I'm creating a whole site dedicated to tomboy gifts... I'd be honored if you checked it out: TomboyGifts.com

All I wanted for Christmas was.... - To paint my room a different color!
My room was bright pink. It seemed OK age age 6... and very much NOT OK at age 10. I wanted to paint my room myself. I wanted camouflage or some other boy themed bed set... Anything besides pink!
I wanted sheets like this one. I wanted to paint my walls. I wanted to get rid of all the girly decoration and pink color in my room!
