Best Gifts for 5 Year Old Boys

Sharing gift guides has by far been one of my favorite things to share on my blog – as a mom of 4 I do so much research when it comes to getting gifts for my own kids, and their friends, so I love taking the research out of things when it come to buying gifts for you guys.

I have a 7 year old son, 5 year old girl, as well as a younger son and daughter.  Over the years I have found (especially with 2 of each gender) that getting well thought out gifts keeps the playroom from getting over crowded and your kids busy playing.

I always to try to find some unique finds, as well as some great options that all kids love.  Check out this post below and just click on the image to shop.  Hopefully whatever the boy in your life loves you will find something he will just love!

Rule of Thumb on Gifts

If you ask me – when it come to gift buying or telling friends and family what to get your child try to find great options that fall into different categories.  

I like to get items for outside, then items like puzzles, books, a toy or two, maybe a bath toy.  Basically think items that can be used in different areas of the house and be enjoyed at different times of the day.

This will help keep them having fun while it helps keeping your house from being crazy cluttered.

    This is such a great list! My son is five and is obsessed with all things LEGO. He got a similar Dino Dig kit for Christmas last year and has been hoping it will show up under he tree again this year. It’s definitely a fun and different activity that keeps kiddos busy (I found they were great for him to do while I was prepping dinner or trying to knock out a little work on an extra busy workday). Thank you for putting these back gift guides together! They have all been so helpful!!
