Does the idea of finding a gift for a tween boy bring you out in a sweat? Never fear, we’ve got you covered! We have been researching far and wide to create our extensive guide: ‘What to Buy Tween Boys for Christmas’, just for you!
From stocking fillers to fabulous gifts for under the tree, from designer labels to toilet humour, and from tech treats for gamers to oddsocks for footballers, there’s something for everyone. And with almost every item listed under £100, and the vast majority well under £30, you needn’t worry about breaking the bank either. (Just like in our Gift Guide for Tween Girls.)
So, relax, take a deep breath and, Happy Shopping!

For any sport- or weights-loving tween, these chocolate dumbbells from Choc on Choc will be sure to raise a smile on Christmas morning! With rugby balls, cricket bats and toilet rolls also available, we’re sure you can find a chocolate creation to suit!
We absolutely adore these toasting gift sets from The Naked Marshmallow Company and knew our Tween Boy Gift Guide wouldn’t be complete without it! Pick two flavours from a selection to create the perfect combination for your young person.
2020 is most definitely the year of the comfies … and they don’t get much more comfy than the Oodie – an ultra soft fleecy blanket with sleeves! Available in a multitude of patterns and plain colours, but, do get the order in quickly as these are selling like hot cakes.
The original onesie company, Onepiece, is a little pricier than some others, but their jumpsuits are great quality, wash well and there’s a huge selection of patterns. If you have a smaller tween, you may get away with a kids size!
We can’t deny; we’re hesitant to make a specific suggestion here as trainer brand and style is such a personal choice. But, the Nike Air Max 270 React ENG does seem to be a popular choice at the moment.
Six socks, none matching. Perfect for tweens who don’t care, and parents who don’t want to waste time pairing socks! These United Oddsocks come in a wide range of themes. Footie-mad kids will love these ones.
These Ralph Lauren reusable cloth facemasks are timelessly elegant. But, if Ralph Lauren is not for your young recipient, just replace with their preferred designer as everyone has a line of facemasks in their 2020 collection!
An ergonomic swivel chair in disguise, the JR Knight gaming chair comes in a choice of colours and styles, and just maybe could encourage more homework time as well as gaming (we can dream, can’t we?!).
Ok, your tween may be growing up and may not want their friends to know about any soft toys hanging out on their beds. But, we challenge anyone not to smile when looking at these cheerful Jellycat Amuseables festive characters!
Perfect for any tween looking to express themselves in biscuit form! Lakeland have done all the baking so it’s all about the design on this gingerbread campervan kit. A great activity for lazy Christmas days at home.
From the best-selling author of This Is Going To Hurt, Kay’s Anatomy is new for Autumn 2020 and provides a humourous, if somewhat gruesome, introduction to human anatomy. (We think it’s perfect for this age-group, but do take a browse first to check you’re comfortable with all the topics discussed.)
Continuing the theme of adapting classic games, any Harry Potter enthusiast will be thrilled with this Cluedo set. Players travel by floo powder in your quest to rescue a key character. Careful not to get locked in Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes though!
A great family game. Claim train routes across Europe to complete your challenges and see who can travel furthest. Ticket to Ride balances skill and luck brilliantly to make a very enjoyable (and not too long!) new classic.
We’ll leave you to decide whether this is the year to treat your tween to a set of noise-cancelling wireless Beats! However, if you’re looking for an affordable alternative, we would recommend these wireless headphones by Rydohi. They come with their own case, and in a variety of colours.
Air Pod Cases
Again, we’ll leave the Apple AirPods earbud decision to you! But, if you do decide to go for it, what about adding a bit of personality to the case? We love The Child cover pictured here. This is the way!
This Anker PowerPort Speed PD 5 was voted best overall charger by Tech Advisor in September 2020. With 60W maximum output spread across the five ports, it’ll ensure a speedy refuel of phones, tablets and other devices.
Ever wonder what your tween will be like behind the wheel? Find out now with a Driving Lesson or Experience with Young Driver. They have centres all round the country and a variety of packages to chose between.
Anything branded with your young person’s favourite YouTuber is almost guaranteed to be a hit! So get googling those merch stores.
Anything Sports Teams!
It almost goes without saying but there will be a wealth of branded opportunities to celebrate your tween’s team of choice. Whatever the sport, whatever the team, there is bound to be everything from wallets and beanies to official shirts and balls available to add to their stocking this year.
The quintessential tween gift! Unfortunately a little caution needs to be applied this year as we watch the High Street struggle with the challenges of 2020 (remember gift card holders sit low down the list of creditors if things take a turn for the worse).
That being said, the Kid’s Choice gift card provides a selection of tween-friendly shopping options so it should be a safe winner.
