No man is ever too old for toys, but early teens need to set themselves apart from the train loving or superhero adulation of their younger years. A gadget gift that makes the most of modern technology whilst still appealing to a young man’s sense of fun is the ideal gift. Our range includes mini drones, one of the top trending gifts of the decade, as well as remote control helicopters. If you're looking for a machine in a lower budget, then the 3 in 1 SkyDrive Motorised Paper Planes set is an excellent small gift or stocking filler.
A Solar Robot Kit, Saltwater Engine Motorbike, Hydraulic Robot Arm or Air Engine Car Kit are all great choices for boys that are ready to move on from Lego and Mechano and like to know how things really work.
Whether the boy in question is your son, nephew or brother, you may have noticed already that his phone is taking over his life. The best phone accessories for early teen boys include an iPhone Charging Cover, an Emergency Wristband Charger, the Bike Phone Holder, an Extra Long Charging Cable and a 3 in 1 Lens Set for Smartphones.
Most boys aged between 10 and 13 are into their sports, so we've made sure our range for them includes a great choice of sport-related gifts. From personalised football mugs from all the top Premier League Teams, to personalised sports trivia books and even a Rugby Ball Lunch box, our sport gifts are both fun and diverse!
Young teens still want to have fun, which is why this gift range includes Laser Tag Guns, Water Bombs, Water Wars Pistol Set, a Snowball Fight Set and the amazing gravity defying Waboba Moon Bouncy Ball.
Early teens will start needing their own essentials like alarm clocks, stationery, lamps and mugs. We stock all of these, but with quirky features, such as the Build Your Own Lamp, the heat changing Star Wars Mug, a range of fun Build Your Own Pen Boxes and the never ending Swiss Army Whiteboard Notebook.
Once you’ve looked though this range of gifts for early teen boys, you’ll wonder why you were ever stuck on what to get them. Instead you’ll find yourself hard-pressed to choose between a Head Lamp Beanie and some Bullet Shaped Pens!
