It can be challenging to find something special for the guys in your life. Our guys work hard, but we want to encourage them to play hard and relax too. These unique gifts and fun finds provide a range of options that you’ll feel great about giving.
Regardless of your big or little guy’s interest, we think you’ll find something here he’ll love. We invite you to explore all of the collections we’ve curated on eBay, but our gift guides for guys are listed below.
Maybe he’s your dad, husband, brother, or uncle, son, or nephew and he’s into sports, style, tech, grilling, or just relaxing in the back yard.
A couple of my favorite items from this list include:
Viper 777 Electronic Soft Tip Dart Board – All work and no play makes Johnny a dull boy. Encourage your guy to have fun with family and friends. With up to 16 players, 177 options, and 35 different games to choose from, he’ll never get bored. And when entertaining friends, this makes a fun toy for “tournament night.”
Goldspot Marksman Walnut Bolt-Action Rifle Ballpoint Pen – Your guy can channel his inner James Bond with this pen that’s both rugged and sleek. This ballpoint pen is designed to protract and retract using the spring-loaded, bolt-action mechanism near the clip, giving the feel of cocking a bolt-action rifle. The barrel is made of solid, hand-turned black walnut wood and feels warm and weighty in-hand. The gleaming chrome-plated appointments and rifle-shaped clip complete the design.
The Reading Room: Books for Boys (and adventurous girls)
Call me a strict Mom, but I limit my boys’ screen time. I work hard to instill the love of reading in my kids. Here is a collection of some of their favorite books. The books are not appropriate for all ages, so please use your best judgment as a parent. My 9 year old has only read the first and second Harry Potter books so far, but we own the entire set. Some of the other adventure series books listed in this collection are less dark and violent for kids and may be a better option. Some of the books listed (like Clifford http://r.ebay.com/eYfuND and all the Tony Mitton http://r.ebay.com/1Av4qI books) are appropriate for babies and toddlers. You know your kids best, so let that guide your selection.
Here are two of my boys’ favorites:
Magic Tree House Books by Mary Pope Osborne – Your kids will be excited to read these simple chapter books about Jack and Annie. This brother and sister team discover a magic tree house in the woods near their home. The tree house enables them to take adventures to many places and back in time. My boys started reading these books in Kindergarten and my 3rd grader still reads them.
Geronimo Stilton Books – Geronimo Stilton is a publisher, and a mouse. He’s articulate, funny and inquisitive. My kids love reading about his adventures from his investigative reporter point of view. This is one of our family favorites at bedtime. My kids also read the same stories over and over on their own.
If you have little boys, you probably know about LEGO Ninjago. If not, you’ve clearly been living under a rock. In this collection, we share with you a variety of items for your little Ninja! Your kids will learn about the Ninja team – Kai, Jay, Cole and Zane – who must master their elemental powers and Spinjitzu weapons to protect NINJAGO from the evil Lord Garmadon. Meanwhile, a mysterious and ancient foe gets unleashed–the Serpentines! Let’s the adventures begin!
Here are two of my favorite items from this collection:
LEGO Ninjago: Official Guide – Being the Ninjago geeks that we are, we obtained this book and read it cover to cover. This handbook is the official guide to all the most important stats from the world of Ninjago, including exclusive info you can’t get anywhere else.
LEGO Ninjago: Cole’s Earth Driller – You’ll see Cole’s Earth Driller in full use during season two of Ninjago. http://r.ebay.com/RZmTHv I love LEGO toys for the skills my boys gain in learning to follow instructions via the accompanying blueprint and the engineering skills from seeing how machines are built and operated.
Almost every boy, and many girls, in our galaxy have pretended they were Jedi. Love of the Star Wars film series and media franchise spans across generations. These fun finds encompass all things Star Wars including LEGO building sets, video games, board games, books, toys and bedding.
Two of my favorite items from this collection include:
LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar – Generally, my boys’ Christmas lists include something LEGO and something Star Wars. Kill two birds with one stone and count down the days to Christmas with this Star Wars Advent calendar. They look forward to using it every December 1-25!
Star Wars Heroes & Villains Pancake Molds – Pancakes and cookies will never be the same again. Use these molds to shape your little Jedi’s food, so he can really EAT, sleep and breathe Star Wars.
