My sweetie-pants, Shane, just turned 5! So, I thought I would share with you some of the things he received, things he already has and loves at his age, and things I almost got him…just in case you are in need of ideas! Hopefully, one of these days will we have the age of every kid and some gift ideas…but that will be a while. Baby steps, right?
Need more gift ideas for a 5 year old boy (and everyone on your list??) Visit my Gift Idea Central… you’ll want to pin it, for sure! Comes in handy for any time you have some shopping to do and presents to buy. 🙂
I want those for MY birthday!
Happy SITS share day! 🙂 Your blog is SO fun! I love this post, wish I had found it last weekend, as my little cousin just turned 5! I might have to bookmark this for Christmas gift ideas! You’re so right about the “war” games, he’s totally in his element pretending to be a general! 🙂
Thanks for the great ideas…I hadn’t even heard of most of them! I especially like the Moon in My Room!!
Great ideas! I googled “gifts for 5 year old boy” and your blog came up. My kid is turning 5 in 1 1/2 weeks. Doesn’t NEED anything. Isn’t into any character (any more–hooray!). I love your 1t 3 ideas especially. I didn’t even think of the practical side of walkie-talkies. One idea i wish my kid liked–worms! I started a worm bin for myself (most of our garbage gets turned into soil) for the “green” aspect of it. I was sure my boy would get into it–he’s a BOY–they’re WORMS–but no…he is not interested. So fine, mommy has worms. You solved my dilemma with your post!
I know it’s a whole year after you posted this, but it’s still GREAT! I also googled “Gifts for 5-year-old boy” and your post came up first. I bought the Hyper Dash and the Wobble Deck for my nephew’s birthday last week. They have been a HUGE hit…not only with the kids, but the adults, too 🙂 Thanks for the suggestions!
