Buy Now

Children are one of the most precious gifts in life and watching them grow healthy and strong brings delight to everyone that loves them. We always have a reason to celebrate these little ones and what better way to show your love for the 10-year-old in your life than to buy them something special? Our gift list is intended to help you do just that.

Choosing the best gifts for 10-year-olds

Child development experts identify hitting the double digits as a great milestone and you may want to celebrate this anniversary by getting the child something nice. Thankfully, experts agree that 10-year-olds are at a stage where they can appreciate the value of a gift so go ahead and get shopping. 

You are bound to find that shopping for a 10-year-old is a bit more challenging than it was before. According to human development markers, a child at his stage of life is starting to have very definite preferences and they can be assertive about what they like or do not like. You therefore want to be careful when shopping for them because you need to give gifts that put this delicate balance into consideration.

How we identified the best gifts for 10-year-olds

When compiling our gift options for 10-year-olds we considered that at this stage, the child has control of their muscles and improved coordination so they can get into lots more physical activities. Gifts that promote sporting activities, indoor and outdoor play and fun activities such as dancing make great gift options. 

We also considered that the average 10-year-old enjoys fun educational activities. Their motor skills are also greatly refined and they can get into detailed artwork. We picked various gifts that promote STEM learning, arts and crafts kits to encourage their creativity, as well as slime gifts to help strengthen their finger muscles.

Tips for buying the best gifts for 10-year-olds

  1. Keep it simple
    Gifts that are educational, promote fun play, keep the tween fully engaged, and last long after the gift-giving is done are ideal. Think along these lines when you go out shopping and you are sure to find a great gift.
  2. Factor in the child’s personality and interests
    Always keep in mind that no two individuals are exactly the same so identify what their interests are. There is the child who will enjoy outdoor physical activities while the other may be more the indoor artsy type. Knowing this will help you find a gift item that will actually be used not stored away and forgotten.
  3. It doesn’t have to be expensive
    As already mentioned, friendships are everything to boys and girls at this stage of life. This means that a truly meaningful gift is one that’ll help the child bond with his/her circle of friends. The good news is that you don’t have to break the bank to achieve this — just get something they’ll enjoy sharing with their BFF and you are on the right track.
