Tween Boy Gift Guide

· ·

Finding gifts for kids between the ages of 10 – 12 can be tricky. My 11 year old son wants to be a grown up but still wants some toys for Christmas. (My 41 year old husband also asked for LEGO so…) It can be hard to find a balance between too baby and too grown so I’m compiled a list of gifts that I think any tween boy would love to receive. I tried to provide a variety of gift ideas because I know everyone has different interests but I think I’ve got a little something for everyone here.
