Gift Guide for Boy 6-8

Some of these items were gifted to me for inclusion in my gift guide. This post also contains affiliate links.


Star Wars Lego Set: Oakland is almost 8 and is wanting more expensive items. He asks for clothes and shoes now which is bizarre to me. I feel like he was just asking for a power wheels truck !!

Kamigami Scarrax Robot: These are really cool! They are a build-it-yourself robot platform using foldable plastic material!

Playstation 4 slim: He is starting to get into video games and as much as I don’t want that to happen it is inevitable! I would just rather have him outside then be inside playing video games all day. This is the latest gaming system and I think Jerod might want it more than Oakland.

Grave Digger remote control truck:  He loves anything that has a remote! Monster trucks have always been a favorite of his! Head to the link and get FREE SHIPPING too!

Air Hogs 2-in-1 Hyper Drift Drone for High Speed Racing and Flying – Blue: This vehicle is awesome because it can race on the ground or fly in the sky! Perfect for boys this age!

Dog Man and Cat Kid ( Pre-order): He has also started to foster a love for reading, which is something I have been wanting to happen for a long time!!! He loves the Dog Man series and has finished all of them. The newest book featured in the image above comes out on his actual birthday!

Jordan shoes: Oakland has owned a few of these! He loves Nike Air Jordan shoes and they last a long time! We will always spend money on shoes if they last!

Pokemon cards:  O is really into trading these Pokemon cards with his friends so a few packs will be going into his stocking this year!

Justice League Action Hyper Shield Batman™ Blaster:  Oakland loves Batman having blaster fights with hid buddy’s!

Astros WORLD SERIES t-shirts:  YOU KNOW my son is going to wear some Astros WORLD SERIES gear! Ha! He got this shirt and a fitted hat like his dad!

PS4 Camo Controller: Oakland will need another controller for when his homeboys come over. This one is cool and a great price right now!

There you go…. one of the hardest ages to buy for! Hope this helps! Happy shopping and thanks for stopping by!

    Great gift guide. My 5 year old boy is all about race cars and drones this year. Love the diversity of options.

    GREAT list! I think my 9yo would love the robot thing! And sport jerseys are always fun. And Pokemon make great stocking stuffers, too!
