How to choose the best Christmas presents for boys

Some boys are sporty, some love reading and some like to build things all day. Whatever type of gift you're looking for, you've come to the right place. It's not too difficult when thinking of something to give to your boy (or a boy in general e.g. nephew, younger brother etc) - have a look at their existing hobbies and see if you can add anything to them. Or, you could look at whether they favour a particular type of toy, sport or genre. Figuring out what he likes and doesn't like is the key to buying the perfect gift. Once you have an idea, then you can start looking at potential 'hot' toys in that area. Here's a tip: superhero gifts tend to go down well.

Alternatively, you can think of your intentions for what your gift will provide for the boy. If you'd like him to spend more time outdoors and less time indoors staring at screens, then you might consider buying him an outdoor activity like a sports kit. If you know he's just finished his favourite book from his favourite series, then perhaps get him another series from the same author or genre. The same concept applies to computer games and technology - getting him the latest version or update will also work well in your favour.
