Are you looking for some fun and creative gifts for your tween boy? I’ve gathered some of our favorite screen free gift ideas that the tween boy in your life is sure to love!! From DIY kits, to slime, to fun foods and clothes, I’ve got great ideas for the little man in your life!
The tween years can be a little tricky when it comes to buying gifts. Kids are transitioning from wanting toys and fun things to wanting electronics and new clothes. Sometimes they can have trouble making a list, and others can’t think of anything at all!
My son loves his tablet, his video games and his computer, but he also has a ton of fun with fun activities like building, cooking, and of course the thing every kid right now loves slime!
One of my favorite places to shop for unique gifts is uncommongoods! My mom has gotten their catalog for years and my boys love to pour over it and find fun and unique items to put on their gift list! Uncommongoods has a great business model that connects creators with people looking for awesome items that are creative and unique!
So I enlisted the help of my very own tween in residence to help me pick the best of the best gifts for the kiddo on your list!
Here is our fun and creative gift guide for tween boys!!
Slime & Putty- Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years everyone is crazy for something to squish!! Uncommongoods has you covered for all sorts of squishy fun! You can pick up a design your own slime kit for hours of creative fun. Or check out Liquid Glass Thinking Putty, it is super clear and so fun to experiment with! We also love the Black Light Thinking Putty, it comes with a cool little key chain that helps you activate its awesome glowing power!
They also have magnetic putty, neon putty, and enchanting unicorn putty!! There is one for everyone on your list!
Fun Fashion– If your tween son is anything like mine they have one crazy fashion sense! Why not embrace it and find them some fun accessories to wear! How can you pass up taco socks?? Or some other funky socks with army men or guitars? You can’t go wrong with something fun and funny to spice up their wardrobe!
Musical Gifts- Do you have a budding musician in your family? There is all sorts of fun to choose from! From a pick punch that lets them make picks from all kinds of things!

If you have a Lego lover you need to check out these light blocks! They take your building to a whole new level! Or how about building your own robot, or a puzzle shaped like a narwhal?
Fun Foods– My son loves to cook… and eat of course! What better way to learn about food and cooking then through some super fun dishes!
