Best Holiday Gift Ideas for Boys

This is a year full of holiday blockbusters and iterations of toys we are familiar with from years past. Big hitting categories are the usual suspects such as action figures, Legos and Hot Wheels and video games which are all getting updates with the latest in blockbusters from Star Wars, Marvel, and Harry Potter.  Read on to see what the Made Modern boys are asking for Christmas and what would fit with the gifts you need to buy your loved ones.

Boys Holiday Gift Guide

Action Figures:

Action figures are a consistent hit with boys and this year is no exception.  Star Wars figures top the charts with high quality Hasbro 6 inch black series figures are highly articulate and have great quality and details.

Marvel Figures are also a consistent hit with the key characters receiving top votes.

These action figures may change going into the end of year with the release of Disney+ and the additional dedicated content and shows that will be included.


A timeless favorite of kids is Legos.  You can never have enough Legos.  They are great for teaching many things from attention to detail when following directions, creativity when playing or building new custom creations and spatial thinking or the ability to translate ideas or drawings into 3 dimensional creations. Favorites in the Lego world for our boys are Star Wars, Harry Potter and Ninjago.

Video Games:

Each year we try to have one special gift that is the 'big gift'.  This year that is going to be their first video game.  For many reasons including the portability, multiplayer nature and family friendly games we have settled on the Nintendo Switch.


Learning Toys:

Each year we also like to buy a few learning toys, games or books.  These provide great family fun activities where kids don't even know they are learning.

Outside Toys and Games

Sports equipment and outside toys are always a big hit. Anything we can do to motivate our kids to get out of the house, off electronics and interacting with each other is always win. These toys and games provide the perfect fun.
