By age 2 a little boy is no longer a baby, and is certainly into the realms of toddlerhood. Sometimes this stage is referred to as “the terrible twos” as parents tend to see more emotional outbursts and boundary-pushing behaviors. However, 2-year-olds are not simply terrible, it is actually an extremely important time for neurological and cognitive development and the brain grows significantly during this time.

As the brain grows and changes, we do begin to see the more challenging behaviors but we also see growing abilities and developmental leaps. At 2-years-old speech is developing rapidly, as are physical skills and the ability to play imaginatively. If you’re looking for a gift for a 2-year-old boy the list we’ve put together here will help with all these different kinds of development.

Thirteen marks the beginning of the dreaded teenage years; as a child turns 13, they begin a mental shift in their self-perception. No longer do they see themselves as a child but instead they begin to adopt that “teenager” label. A 13-year-old boy may begin to feel more independent during this time and will certainly want to have their opinion heard and exercise increasing amounts of control over their body, their environment and their need for privacy.

In some ways this makes buying a gift easier as they express quite clear interests and you can purchase something that fits in with these. Many 13-year-olds still desire affirmation from adults, and care about what grown-ups think of them despite expressing the contrary! Choosing a gift that reflects a 13-year-old’s interests and abilities as well as opening up new skills is a great way of showing your approval. We’ve put together a list of 30 gifts that will appeal to 13-year-old boys.
