Lego is always a great option for boys of all ages, as there are many different types of Legos that are specifically built for children of different ages. If you're shopping for a young boy, check out anything from Lego Duplo. You can pick up any standard Lego set for ages 6-10 years old, just pay attention to the age recommendation on the corner of each box.

For slightly older boys in their tweens and early teens, you can find so many different options, and you can even lean into their favorite fandoms (like Star Wars or Harry Potter) to find a Lego set they'll enjoy.

Board Games for Boys

There are tons of great board games that boys will love, especially when they start getting into the tween+ stage. But for 7-10 year olds, look for games like Fluxx (there are many different cool versions!) or Pandemic. For late teens, I highly recommend the Wildlands board game - super fun!
