Top 10 Best Gifts Tween Boys 2014

Updated on April 25, 2014

Gift ideas for tween boys 9, 10, 11, & 12 years.


At this age, the boy is no longer considered a child, yet he is not yet a teen. The boy falls somewhere in between, he's now considered a tween. The tween boy may share some interests in common with older teenagers, but they are not quite as advanced yet. We have lots of gift ideas for that tween boy you love, cool stuff he'll like.

Don't know what to get the boy? Ask! Of course, coming right out and asking the tween boy what he wants for Christmas can be a very practical proposition or it can be dangerous territory, at this age be prepared, because you never know what'll pop out! He'll most likely tell you he wants an R/C Helicopter, Nintendo Wii, XBox 360 or a video game, surprise-surprise he wants the fun stuff.

The best thing to do is to level with the youngster and give him an idea of what you can afford to spend on gifts. Then the tween will most likely think of a gift you can afford and then you don't have to do mess around, you only need to squeeze it into your budget. Choosing tween boy gifts wisely and staying within your budget will actually make Christmas a happier time for everybody involved. It's not a good time to be worrying about finances, so shop smart this season to get the most out of your hard earned cash.

But don't worry no matter how unique a tween boy is however, most boys 9, 10, 11 & 12 are on the same vibe and like to receive certain things as gifts, so it's hard to go wrong. With so many cool gifts for tween boys out there, there's something for every tween boy; no matter how picky they are.

There's just no way around the fact that playing video games is one of the most entertaining things that a kid can do to kill time.

Gamer Gifts Boys will surely love to play video games alone and even with their friends. This is a cool idea. You can give them video games that they really enjoy and in which they can relate. A music player of their choice is also a good gift.

These are highly enjoyable and stimulating gifts that you can give them. Kids always want the newest and greatest stuff, so we put together a gift guide featuring the top 10 video gifts for 2014, including games, consoles and video game accessories.

With the holidays coming up, there is no doubt that a video game console would be the perfect gift for a hardcore gamer. If

he is happy with his console, video games or accessories are the way to go...



Boys that participate in active sports totally appreciate new gear for the sports they engage in, and much of the time, sporting goods gifts can be a motivating factor too encouraging him to get out and play.

For those tween boys who participate in sports like basketball, soccer and baseball. You can put a soccer goal in the back yard, or get him one of those portable basketball hoops outside the house in the driveway for them to practice their favorite sports game. Then

again you can simply give them a nice basketball, a soccer ball or a sports garment.

Try to narrow down what he may need and give him the best equipment possible within your budget. Of course the good stuff always costs, more but it's usually worth it since it it out performs the cheap low end sports equipment. These will surely make them happy and satisfied.


Battle Machines RC Laser Tag - Battle Machines Radio Control 2-Pack - Chevy Camaro vs. Ford Mustang...


If your tween boy likes RC cars, he'll love the Battle Machines R/C Laser Tag 2-Pack featuring Chevy Camaro vs. Ford Mustang with Shark Design is a radio controlled, vehicle-based game of tag. Each vehicle is equipped with an infrared laser and an infrared sensor. The goal is to shoot your opponent until their vehicle is disabled. Controlling your vehicle via radio control is just part of the fun.

We added an element of excitement that takes ground R/C to the next level of play: Radio Control Laser Combat. Your radio controller allows you to maneuver your vehicle strategically into a position where you can tag your enemy by pressing the fire button. The first and second hit you unleash on your opponent will cause their vehicle to stop in its tracks and rumble with exploding sounds. The third and final blow will cause your enemy to lose all control of their vehicle declaring you the winner!<

Invite your friends to join you in multi-player modes and watch your back or be Lazertagged!



When I was a tween aged boy I loved playing games. Whenever the weather was nasty outside the neigbor friends would come over and we would retreat to the rec room downstairs in the basement, pull out the games and we would peel off the hours of the day, having the time of our lives playing fun games. We played The Game of Life, Yatzee, Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots and of course we killed hours playing monopoly. I also enjoyed Operation, Mouse Trap and who could forget Risk? We had it all...

Ah, those were the days my friend! But you know what those Games are still around and they are just as fun as they were back in the day. Plus, there's a whole new crop of games to entertain and challenge kids nowadays.

Have you seen the new euro style games such as Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride? They are awesome games. Unlike American games, players in Euro style are not eliminated before the game is over. So nobody is stuck twiddling their thumbs as the rest of

the players grind on to the end. Also, Euro-style board games do not rely as heavily on luck or chance in their games. American games are pretty dicey that way, a bad roll and your in jail. Euro style games place more emphasis on strategy and efficiency of your move selection.

If you are sick of searching for the perfect present for a tween boy, a Lego set may be just the cure the gift guru ordered. Kids in this age range like to put things together. There a lot of things that your tween can assemble objects out of small parts such as model cars and of course LEGO sets. Wow, I can't believe how far LEGO Sets have come since I was a kid, nowadays a kid can construct the Space Shuttle or the Eiffel Tower with a LEGO complete set.

Tip: Not all tweenagers are going to like LEGOs, but most boys will love them. You just have to know the teen who is getting the gift. The LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot is relatively expensive, but it's so cool, even for older teenagers.

OK, you've discovered the perfect tween boy gift. You know the young man is into radio-controlled vehicles and that he's is a big fan of RC trucks specifically. Except? You don't know diddly squat about electric RC planes or cars so how to choose the right one?

We've sifted through the rif-raff and come up with a few that your tween will really like. In fact they all are radio controlled vehicles that I'd like! It's funny, there are not many products in the universe that appeal to folks both young and old alike, but RC is one of them. Why? For kids, it's a fun toy that allows them to feel in control and for the adults, it allows them to feel like a kid again. It's not every gift that works with such a wide range of personalities, but the radio controlled cars do, making them an outstanding present for tween boys.

The brand new 3 channel gyro mini metal RC helicopter is on of the world's newest, smallest and lightest RC helicopter you can get! At approx. 7.5" long, it easily fits in the palm of your hand and is fully functional, equipped with latest Gyroscope technology, which makes this helicopter an instant hot seller in the RC world. This mini Gyro Metal Helicopter charges directly either from the USB cable or from the controller which uses AA batteries and has a full-function trim control for the perfect flight.

The all-new Air Hogs Battle Tracker delivers head-to-head interactive combat. Intelligent auto tracking technology provides boys with real-life interactive battle play. There are a few ways to play too, including single or multi-player missions. Play friends to see who will be the winner, or go head to head against the the Robotic Turret which zeros in on you, and shoots powerful missiles aimed at dropping your helicopter out of the sky.

      If your kid is a basketball fan a great gift would be a training course on how to jump higher. You know he'll want to slam dunk like Michael Jordan.
