    I need some ideas for a Christmas gift for a 6 year old boy that won't

    break the bank. Don't want to spend more than $30 or $40. I never had a

    boy so I have no idea what to get him. Long story but I don't get to

    see him much, so I don't know what he has or needs & I want him to know

    that we do care even if we aren't related & the situation going on with

    his mother isn't his fault. Nothing big or heavy because I have to mail

    the gift.

    Do you know the child? His likes or dislikes?



    a reader? books

    a crafter? assorted inexpensive craft supplies crayons, modeling clay etc.

    loves models? model kits, age specific

    super heros? action figures

    movie buff? movie passes

    a builder? legos, erector sets

    I have a 6 year old boy. He loves anything that has

    wheels. Like cars, monster trucks, match box cars and

    stuff like that. They have some great ones at walmart

    for under $20 that are bigger and will withstand them

    tearin them up. ha ha. Also my son is just starting

    to get into army men. ya can buy them at the dollar

    store. I think boys are much easier to get somthing

    for then girls, cause at this age, they will be happy

    with just trucks or somthing, at least my son would.

    Hope this helps some

    Laters,

    Kelly

    Maybe a small collection of books on boy friendly subjects such as trains,

    dinosaurs, trucks, etc and a few toys to compliment them. Or a few activity

    craft sets.



    I have all girls, but I do have quite a few nephews and getting pretty good at

    picking out presents for them.

    You can't go wrong with a remote control car....



    Also, you can usually get great deals on Amazon.com

    for boys toys for around $6-$10 for things valued at

    $20+.

    I don't have any boys of my own and had this same problem with what to send my nephew for his birthday (he was six). I ended up getting 25 one dollar bills and putting them in a box. He thought he was rich when he saw "all that money." Then, his mom took him to Wal-Mart and let him buy whatever he wanted. She said it really made his day.

    Since then, I've just sent him money on his birthday and Christmas. He's really good about writing me a letter and including a picture of what he bought with his money.

    I have a five year old son- he loves Legos,army guys, and he would

    LOVE a remote control car (Santa might bring one...)

    I think Legos are great, creative, quiet,and they can be added to, and

    the boys are interested in Legos for many years....

    I hope that helps.

    Years ago when my nieces were small and I'd send money for either a

    birthday or Christmas gift I'd go to the bank and get "funny" money.

    Actual cash but in fun, not normal currency such as $2 bills, Silver

    dollars (don't think you can get these anymore) but maybe Susan B

    Anthony or Sacajawea dollars,& half dollars. This way they not only got

    money to spend but could "show it off" to their friends first and

    learned about some unusual money.

    One year at Christmas I paid a friend's son to make me some orgami

    figures using dollar bills (the kid got some extra money for Christmas)

    and I had cute animal shapes to leave as tips for the holiday season.

    I have a 6 year old boy. He loves LEGO and hotwheels cars. He also likes putting things together - there are wooden kits available at toy's R us for about $19.99 that contain wood, screws, screwdriver, etc, and the child can actually make a vehicle (or another thing like a bird house, mailbox, etc) He just loves this kind of thing... a little paint would be a perfect accompaniment to the kit (most don't come with paint) so he can decorate it the way he wants. My son also loves board games, like Snakes and Ladders, Trouble or UNO. Perhaps a game would be a good choice for him? I tend to stay away from ninja turtles, spider man, and that sort of thing as it can be contriversial, so unless you know the parents opinion on those kinds of agressive toys, I feel it is better to stay with something that is neutral. Hope there was a helpful idea
    there! Rachel
