  1. This is so timely! It’s my nephew’s birthday in a few weeks and we’re actually thinking of what present to give him. Super love all the suggestions but the science experiment book is my favorite. Thank you for sharing.

  2. My son is definitely harder to shop for than my two girls! At 12 he still loves his joke book, building Legos and taking off on his skateboard. That hover board would be a hit with him as well!

  3. I love this list! My son is turning 7 soon and we’re struggling with gift ideas. These would all work for him.

  4. Legos are always a hit. And while some of the items were not available at the time my own kids were that age, I know they would have loved all these
