Great Gifts for Boys!

To help you out with your holiday shopping, I thought I would put together a list of gifts for boys based on what my Facebook followers suggested.

Cub Scout girls, your list is coming soon! 🙂

From Legos to Nerfs, you're sure to find something that your son wants for the holidays.

Click over to find out if your favorite is on sale!

Amazon has a great selection of Nerf toys.  There are literally hundreds!

This Nerf CS-18 N-Strike Elite Rapidstrike looks like a fun option if your guys like Nerf toys.

And you'll have to have some extra Nerf darts.  Grab this pack of 100.

Who can go wrong by combining two of the hottest toys this year–Minecraft and Legos.  The Lego Minecraft – The Village is a best seller this season.

If this isn't the set your son wants, click on over to Amazon to see literally hundreds of other choices!

Shhhh….  Don't tell your boys, but they'll be learning STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) by playing with one of the Snap Circuit sets.

And they just might earn credit toward the Cub Scout Nova or Supernova awards.

What boy doesn't love walkie talkies?  He can grab a friend and head out on an adventure–even if it's just in your back yard.

These walkie talkies have a 2-mile range, so the older boys can use them when they walk around the neighborhood.

Of course, having a good cargo vest with lots of pockets is a necessity when you're on an adventure.  Fill them with snacks, a compass, your pocketknife or any of the cool adventure tools from Backyard Safari.

There are so many great books for boys!  Regardless of your son's favorite topic, he is sure to find something he likes.  The Boys' Book of Survival is one of the best sellers in Children's Camping Books on Amazon right now.

Do your boys love the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books?  Mine do!  Recently, my husband bought one for my son and gave it to him after dinner.  By the next morning, he had read it TWICE!

When we went to Philmont this summer, all my boys could talk about was getting a Camelbak.  They only bought the reservoir and not the actual backpack, so I think this one will show up under the tree this year!

I hope this list of gifts for boys helps make your shopping a little easier today!

Yours in Scouting,

Too bad the link to the kids' Camelbak is broken.

David, thanks for letting me know! I'm so sorry about that. The Camelbak was available from Bass Pro yesterday morning, so I'm not sure what happened. I updated the link to the same one on Amazon.

Thanks again!
