Ah, Christmas time is upon us once again. It’s time to start gathering lists and getting ideas for everyone on your list this year. What do you do when you’re needing gift ideas for 10 year old boy who has everything!? This can be a tough age to shop for especially if it’s not your child and you don’t really know what their interests are.

General toys that are marketed for kids of this age are really common go-to options for someone. Finding the right gift that you’d like to make an impression with takes a little guesswork and understanding their needs. NO, I’m not talking about an electric toothbrush in the stocking or body wash. I mean developmental needs.
