Shopping for boys isn’t easy— especially if you don’t happen to have one. And even if you do, kids’ interests change every day. One second, a toy is hot and the next it’s not — just like fashion. It can be difficult to figure out what boys would like for birthdays, graduations, or even for Christmas (no pressure!). Let’s face it, not all boys are into the same things. Some enjoy kicking a punching bag, Some boys enjoy creative projects and science kits while other boys enjoy tablets or videogames. When you have to buy a gift for a boy you don’t really know, the list becomes even more difficult to complete.
