A backpack makes an ideal, practical gift for a 15-year-old boy as at this age they often spend a lot of time independently outside of the family home, pursuing their own hobbies and interests. Backpacks make a great useful gift because a 15-year-old boy will probably use a backpack for school, and then may need one for school sports kit, any extra-curricular sports or activities and will usually like to have one to take to friends’ houses or out and about too. So even if the boy you’re buying for already has a backpack, another will probably still come in useful!

The last year before becoming officially a teenager, age 12 is an age of being in-between. On the one hand, 12-year-olds have not quite become teenagers and can still act like children you have known up until now, but on the other hand, they are rapidly approaching the teenage years and you often begin to see little glimpses of this in their desire for independence and self-expression. Fortunately, at this stage, the changes that go along with the teenager years are still emerging slowly so there is time to prepare.

All of this though can make choosing a gift slightly trickier, as you may be unsure whether to go for something like a toy or something more suited to a teenager. This list brings together some more mature toys, and some practical items, so you can find something suitable for the 12-year-old boy you are buying for.

Hape Gourmet Grill Playset

As children turn 3-years-old, they move from being ‘toddlers’ to being ‘pre-schoolers’ and this may co-inside with beginning pre-school or moving into a pre-school class within their usual childcare setting. The transition from toddler to pre-schooler isn’t always smooth, leading to some dubbing 3-year-olds “Threenagers” as their behaviour can often seem like that which we usually associate with teenagers. Emotions run high at age 3, and 3-year-olds are quick to express their thoughts, feeling and opinions. Whilst this can be a little difficult to navigate it’s a great sign that they are developing as they should be.

3-year-old boys, like most young children, still need plenty of time outdoors and lots of physical activity; allowing them the freedom to run, climb, and jump is essential for practicing their physical skills, developing strength, balance and coordination and burning off some of their seemingly endless energy. If you are searching for a gift for a 3-year-old boy there are plenty of toys and gifts to choose from, but we’ve brought together some of the best which will help to support their development too.

Being 10 is a time of change and transition; children of this age are beginning to welcome the approach of adolescence and are firmly in the ‘tween’ age bracket.

Self-identity and self-esteem become much more important around this age as children develop more of a sense of who they are and how they fit into the world.

Social interaction is increasingly important at this stage and children will become more skilled socially; being more able to navigate conflict, control their emotions and negotiate solutions with peers.

If you’re searching for a gift for a 10-year-old boy, this list may help you to find something special. We’ve put together a range of options, catering to different interests and skills so you will get plenty of ideas of what to buy.
