Looking for the best boy gifts for the little guy in your life? Look no further! Time-tested, and kid-approved, these gifts for boys are a sure win for the 7-9-year-old boy!
I grew up with two sisters. Then I had two daughters. Shopping for gifts for boys was a whole new world for me when my son was born. Thankfully, his dad is a pro at finding awesome gifts he loves, and I learned a lot in the past decade of buying gifts for boys. From trucks to trains to sports equipment, pick up one of the best boy gifts ever!
The Ultimate List of Best Boy Gifts for 7-9 Year Old Boys
Remote Control Monster Truck – For little boys, small remote control cars are great. But when they get older, they want BIG trucks! The bigger, the better. The downfall to these trucks is that their battery takes an hour to charge and lasts about 10 minutes. So make sure to get an extra battery.
Suntail SwimFin Shark Fin- Mermaid tails were ALL the rage with girls – but don’t forget about the boys! The swim fin is worn on the feet and gives the swimmer an extra boost when swimming.
Anything LEGO – You can’t go wrong with a LEGO set, big or small. Our son really isn’t into the Star Wars or other character LEGO sets, though. He loves the LEGO City line of sets. The Monster Truck kits were also a big hit. Don’t forget to pick up a building plate or two for future play.
Hot Wheels Tracks – I was excited when Hot Wheels brought back their track sets. The tracks are inexpensive and make for hours of fun. I’ve found the fancy sets don’t work well. Stick with the basic tracks and curves.
Electric Train Set – My son received an electric train set at age 5, and he still plays with it. Once they’ve outgrown Thomas, this is a great first step up. His train has three sounds, smoke, and goes forward and backward, similar to this one. We all love his train and spend quality time as a family playing with it.
Foam Dart Guns – If you dislike guns, move on to the next idea. But my son plays superhero outside with his friends, and they love dart guns. The most popular brand are Nerf. Just don’t forget to pick up extra darts because they will lose ALL of them!
Football and other sports equipment – Don’t underestimate a good old-fashioned toy! My son was dying for a football for his 7th birthday and was elated to get one. I bought a Junior size for his smaller hands, and it’s great. A soccer ball, basketball, and baseball glove are all ideas.
Tabletop Air Hockey – I picked up one of these on a lark one year, and it’s gotten so much use! The whole family loves to play it. The best thing is that I stash it in a closet when we aren’t playing it.
Magnetic Dart Board – One game that my husband and son play together is darts. It started as a game on phones and turned into real life when we finally put a dart board in the garage.
