47 Best Gift for 3-Year-Old Boys

What's Covered

3-year-old boys may be considered as young individuals but these little people somehow already know what they want especially when it comes to gifts and toys! In fact, the toys they play affect their behaviors.[1] You would actually ask them: “What do you want for Christmas?” What do you want for your birthday?” Yet, you still can decide what to buy for them! If you are looking for a great gift for a 3-year-old boy, reading this article will surely help you find one.

How to Choose the Best Gift for a 3-Year-Old Boy

Personally, when I buy a gift for my toddler, I look into certain considerations here are some points which might help you in choosing a gift for a 3-year-old boy:

Consider the age

When buying a gift, always consider the age. You can actually look into the packaging and see if the gift you are buying for a 3-year-old is in the age group.[2] Considering the age allows you to help a 3-year-old boy develop his skills according to his average development.

Think about safety

Always remember safety. Every toy is supposed to be made in consideration with safety.[3] Go for those products with sustainable materials and avoid those that were made with toxic chemicals. Additionally, avoid buying gifts that can choke curious 3-year-old boys.

Complexity

Consider buying a gift that is multifunctional. Take into consideration the features of a certain product and always choose the one with lots of features. Additionally, choose those gifts that can be used in variety of ways.

Do not stereotype

Gender-typing is has a lot of consequences. It makes the little boys feel that they are not permitted to play pink toys.[4] Avoid stereotyping when buying gifts. Not all 3-year-old boys are fans of cars. Think of the personality of the child and defer the gender norms.

Sharable Gifts

Personally, I buy gifts that can be shared by my child to other children. There are many days when my child has to play with his cousins and I have noticed that kids always want other kids’ toys. So, for this reason, I always choose gifts that can be played by many people as this can foster a healthy and fun relationship.

Think about the parents

If you are buying a gift for other child, think of the parents of that boy. Will their parents allow them to play it? Will their parents object? Although you might think that it is improper to think this, this way might actually help you make the most out of your money.

Durable

Always choose the durable ones – those that can be passed to other kids. Choosing durability over low price is always my choice. Even if the product pricey, as long as it is durable and useful, I go for it.
