Sometimes trying to find the best gift for a 10 year old boy is tricky business, whether it’s for a birthday or Christmas or something else. But with 7 boys between the two of us, we consider ourselves experts in all things boys, including what gifts they love to get. (And we brought in the real experts-our boys and had them tell us what THEY love to get.) These 10 Best Gifts for a 10 Year Old Boy for Under $15 are tried and true, great gift ideas. We think giving a great gift doesn’t need to break the bank, so these are affordable and fun!
To tell you the truth though, these might also be great gift ideas for a 9 year old boy or an 11 year old boy or even a couple of years younger or older as well. Our boys range in age from 6-16 and the middle pack (who are 9-12) all approved of these gifts!

Remote Control Helicopter Ball:
Have you ever played with a remote control helicopter?! They are So. Much. Fun! Our boys love them. All ages. They can be a little bit hard to maneuver, so they are probably best for about 7-8 years and up, but even our older boys think these are fun! Definitely one of the best gifts for a 10 year old boy.
These toys are a throwback to our own childhood, but they’ve been a bit of a craze at our kids’ school lately. We’ve got one kiddo who’s a total pro at them-he’ll play with one forever! Also, it’s kind of nice for them to have something to use their brain for. 😉 It’s a fun gift idea!
One of our boys is an 11 year-old that is obsessed with these magnetic balls. He loves molding them into different shapes. They are fun to play with and easy to store because they are so small. These make a fun gift idea for those kids who seem to already have everything because chances are they don’t have these.
We took a vote with our boys and this is the Nerf Gun that won! They all agreed this is the coolest gun and they were convinced they needed to add this to their vast collection of Nerf Guns. Nerf Guns are a very fun gift idea because no matter if the kids already have one or two, they always want more. You might want to consider buying some new bullets with this gift because you can never have too many bullets.
This is a super fun family game! Everyone in our family enjoys it-from the 6 year old up to the adults. And it’s small and easy to travel with which is handy for trips. Roll the dice and make a choice on how you want to use them that turn to get the most X’s on your board and win!
Bean Bag Chairs make a fun gift because they are so versatile. This one is smaller and can be used more like an over sized pillow. Bean Bag Chairs are perfect to take to movie nights, or sleep overs or to simple use for lounging making it a perfect gift idea.
These are magical! We promise that no matter who you are buying for they will absolutely love these. Perler Beads provide hours of creativity and fun. All you need is this kit and everything is included, it’s a great starter kit and makes a perfect gift.
Have you walked into a class room lately? Chances are you will see at least a dozen of these fidget spinners. They are the new craze and every child wants one (or 10). You can’t go wrong giving this as a gift.
Whether you are buying for a Lego lover or a beginner, this Lego block box is perfection. It gives a variety of fun Lego blocks of all shapes, colors, and sizes. This is a perfect addition to any Lego collection or a good starter pack. Makes a great gift idea. (Can you imagine how many Legos we have in our houses with all of these boys!?)
These Hydro Footballs make a really fun gift idea. My (Danetta) little guy got one of these for his birthday and he would not put it down. This ball went everywhere with him, needless to say, it was a perfect gift. They are perfect in the pool or any outdoor game. They can get wet and float in the water. Our boys absolutely love these, and honestly always want more.
Have FUN finding the best gifts for a 10 year old boy!!
