Gift Ideas For 8 Year Old Boys

Hunting for gift ideas for 8 year old boys? Buying for older kids can be tricky. At the age of eight, boys are beginning to leave behind the cutesy toys of their childhood and are craving all kinds of cool.

8 year old boys want to experiment, explore and be challenged. They yearn for adventure outdoors, but also need a little down time inside. The trick to the perfect gift is finding something unique that balances the many different needs of this quirky age.

Eight is the new tween!

You’re on a fast-track to tweendom when you’re 8. Your definition of fun is morphing into something new!

8 year olds are quickly developing their own unique personalities. They are relying less on adults for entertainment and are content with creating their own fun.

It doesn’t have to be hard to buy gifts for 8 year old boys. Check out these gift ideas your cool kid is sure to love.

Desk and chair set

Your 8 year old will love having their own private space to study … or play Minecraft. This comfortable desk and chair set will provide the perfect place for your boy to work independently on their homework and studies, draw, read or construct Lego. A desk can be a bonus for parents, too, keeping papers and pencils tucked away in desk draws rather than cluttering the bedroom floor. This chair is available in seven cool colours and will continue to grow with your child, ahem – big kid, for years to come.

King single bed

Is your 8 year old boy eating you out of house and home? At age of eight, boys have left behind their baby face and are becoming broader, stronger and bigger! Time to upgrade to a bigger bed for your 8 year old? They will think they’re king of the world with this king single bed. This bed will provide them with the support their growing bodies need, and give them plenty of room to move. What’s more, it comes in the uber-cool colours of taupe and stormy grey.

Bean bags

No matter how active your 8 year old is, they still need a place to chill out. Whether your boy likes to curl up with a good book, play video games or watch TV, bean bags are the perfect place for them to sit back and relax. Choose from a one-seater arm-chair style bean bag or let them kick their feet up with a roomy two-seater bean bag. The super-comfy lounger bean bag can be used indoors or outdoors for ultimate relaxation.

Lego storage bag and play mat

While your 8 year old boy may be steering away from the kids’ toys of their younger years, Lego will still undoubtedly be a focus. Sick of seeing Lego strewn across your living room floor?
