10 Perfect Gifts for 6-Year-Old Boys
Looking for Gifts for 6-Year-Old Boys? My son is turning 6 in just a few days. With his birthday being so close to Christmas time, I need to have a lot of good gift ideas in mind.
When it starts getting close to November, I start taking notes. Not with a pen and paper, but mentally. (I could write it down I guess…) This is how I put together my list of the 10 best gifts for 6-year-old boys.

Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. To read more about how my affiliate links work, click here.
What I pay attention to:
- Which toys does he play with the most?
- What are his interests?
- Is there anything he has mentioned that he wants?
Quick tip: Write down I a planner or notebook things he mentions throughout the year. By birthdays & Christmas you have a great list of Gifts for 6-Year-Old Boys.
What I want in a gift for my 6-year-old:
- Something that he will play with more than once.
- Things that don’t take a lot of batteries.
- Toys that spark the imagination.
- Educational toys.
- How long it will last.
These are all things I take into consideration before buying gifts for my son.
I also let him go through a magazine and mark things that he wants. (This usually leads to pretty much everything gets marked though… so it’s not really that effective!) I also let him add things to my Amazon wishlist.
10 Gifts for 6-Year-Old Boys
#1 Magna-Tiles Ice
Boys love to build! Endless possibilities with these!!
#2 Yeti In My Spaghetti
My 6-year-old loves playing board games and this one is super fun.
My 6-year-old loves riding his RipStik! The older kids have one too. We take them on walks or they ride around our cul-de-sac. These are pretty tricky to ride at first, but it promotes good balance! They will be flying around on it before you realize it.
My son would absolutely adore these! Binoculars+Boys=WIN!
My kids love using walkie talkies with their friends. Our neighbors have a set so the kids can talk back and forth.
A boy can never have too many dinosaurs! Both of my boys went through a dino-loving phase around 6 years old or so.
#7 Waterproof Remote Control Car Boat
This is something my son has been asking for. He saw one at Toys-R-Us and he can’t stop talking about it! This one does 360-degree spins and flips!
Also, it’s waterproof and all-terrain!! Definitely a plus because we know boys can be pretty rough on their toys!
#8 Dinosaur Duvet Set
This is a really cute idea for boys! If your son is like mine, then you know he’ll love anything and everything to do with dinosaurs!
These are great for creative play. For building, sticking, and bouncing. They are right up any little boy’s alley! (Actually any kid!!)
#10 Superhero Cape Set
I saved the best for last! (At least my son would think so!) Superhero Capes and Masks!
