Holiday Gift Guide 2021: Boys 11-13

November 18, 2021

It’s my favorite time of the year! I don’t know about you but as I’ve gotten older I find more joy in buying gifts then receiving them.

As we are all always looking for the perfect gift , I’ve put together a few of my favorites for boys ages 11 to 13.

If there is one thing I’ve learned being a mom it’s that as boys get older it gets harder to shop for them. But luckily for you I’ve been planning this shopping season all year long. Check out a few things that not only my boys love but yours will too!

As we are all always looking for the perfect gift , I’ve put together a few of my favorites for boys ages 11 to 13.

If there is one thing I’ve learned being a mom it’s that as boys get older it gets harder to shop for them. But luckily for you I’ve been planning this shopping season all year long. Check out a few things that not only my boys love but yours will too!

This is my personal favorite gift of the year. My boys eat, breathe and live for baseball so to find something that they enjoy and will use often is a major mom win for me.

When the boys are ready, they simply open their iOS Diamond Kinetics app and it allows each of them to make adjustments and improve their game to their skill level. Order yours here – and use code HOLIDAY20 for 20% off your purchase through the end of December! Shop Diamond Kinetics and give the gift that gives all year long.


Riders Republic

Do you boys love to game? Riders Republic is the game of the year to add to your shopping list. Riders Republic is a fun multiplayer game that invites players to jump into a lively playground where they can experience the thrill of outdoor sports in an open and densely populated world – great for extreme-sports loving teenagers!

One of the fun perks to Riders Republic is they can play with or against their friends from all other gaming platforms and others to compete in biking, skiing, snowboarding, wingsuiting and rocket wingsuiting in some of the most amazing National Parks throughout the yesterday.

Now through December select retailers are running a great deal of 33% off. Make sure to grab yours before it’s gone! Shop Riders Republic Here!


BMX Street Bike

If your young man is looking for more of an adventure I’ve noticed this past year skate parks with BMX bikes have really taken off for both Tyler & Jaxson who are 11 and 12.

While there are many bikes to choose from I can remember when I got my first Tony Hawk skateboard and thought I was the coolest in town. So obviously Tony Hawk wins my vote along with all of the amazing reviews I’ve read.

Make sure when picking your bike pick the correct size. My 11 year old fits a 20in and my 13 year old is in the next size up. When looking at sizing be sure to check the requirements of any bike before purchasing.


Paintball Gear

Have you taken your kids to paintball before? For as long as I can remember my kids have always had a nerf gun and throughout the years they always enjoyed it and then this past year each of them were invited to a paintball party and from there each of my boys have loved the sport.

As their mom I tend to worry about their safety but knowing they have protective gear makes it much easier to willingly take them to play. Grab this full set here – Amazon Paintball Gear .


360-Degree Swivel Gaming Chair

I’ll be honest, we go through gaming chairs yearly lol. So this year we decided to upgrade from the foldable ones that can be put away and go with the mac daddy of chairs. This chair is a huge hit because it’s ability to rotate 360 degrees and keep low to the floor which is perfect for gaming on a tv console, Nintendo switch or phone. G

Gaming Keyboard & Mouse

This is anyone one of those every other year gifts. I’ve learned that the most expensive is just as good as the middle priced ones for teens. I don’t recommend going with anything under $50 simply because we’ve tried it and almost all are broken within a few months.

You can grab this set here- Havit Mechanical Keyboard and Mouse Combo


Don’t forget to grab these!

A few of our favorites to add every year is Lego’s that are age appropriate. I’m really excited to see how this Technic turns out this year!

Wiggle Balls & Bat are always a great inexpensive gift for boys & girls. The balls are perfect for playing outside the house without needing to head to the ball park.

Clothes, clothes and more clothes! I’m sure if you have boys they would I choose to only wear Nike, Under Armor and other sports brands but slowly I’ve gotten mine to love Abercrombie Kids and they are my favorite and let me tell you why. I can get high quality clothing for the same price as Walmart! That’s right- if you get the right sale you can get a better deal than most department stores. While sometimes I will splurge on something that is just in, I always shop if it’s buy 1 get 1 50% off making most shirts between $10-$15 at the most. If you shop winter jackets in January or February you can get them as low as $25 from $200. But their Black Friday and Christmas specials are always worth it!

Shop Abercrombie Kids

This year the boys wanted to lighten their night game and I hands down an fully in board. Just look at how cool this hoop light is! Make sure to check out trampoline lights as well.

Shop Basketball Hoop LEDs

That’s it for 2021! I hope you found just what you we’re looking for. While all of these opinions are mine this blog post is partially sponsored by Riders Republic & Diamond Kinetics.
