In case you don’t know it, I’m completely surrounded by little boys. Between my two sisters and I, we’ve got 5 boys under the age of 6 running around, making a mess, and telling fart jokes. It’s absolutely insane when we all get together and oh-so-much fun! Since I’m the mother of boys and a craft blogger, I figured I had a little bit of experience to share some of my favorite creative gifts for boys. I split it up into four different monetary amounts to help you find gifts for all occasions. By the way, these are great gifts for girls as well!

We bought an Fujifilm Instax™ Mini 8 Camera for my then 5 year old son and while we were initially worried about it him dropping it, haven’t regretted the purchase since! It’s a great way for kids to play with photography basics and parents get a behind-the-scenes look at how the world looks from their kids’ point-of-view.
You can classify the 3Doodler 3D Printing Pen 2.0 under “Gifts For My Kids That I’m Going To Play With Too.” There’s a pretty strong learning curve to this innovative new “toy” so I wouldn’t recommend it for kids younger than 12 years although I do let my 7 year old use it with some serious adult supervision!
Gifts Under $50
You kinda can’t go wrong with buying a Lego set for boys (or girls!) for Christmas, right? I love this LEGO Minecraft Crafting Boxbecause it seamlessly translates a video game to real world applications. Plus, if they like this one, there’s plenty of other Minecraft biomes you can buy for their birthday or other special event!
Get your kid started on the art of videography early with their very own VTech Kidizoom Action Cam! It’s super durable, water-proof, and comes with two mounts so they capture their most awesome action moments. Expand their creativity with either videos, photos, stop-motion, or time-lapse functions. I’m totally getting my 7 year old this!
Gifts Under $25
Have a budding sculptor in your midst? This Super Dough Do It Yourself Modeling Set includes directions and dough for making Batman, Robin, the Batcycle, and the Batplane. It even includes a cardboard diorama of the Batcave for endless hours of enjoyment!
This Creativity Art Box from Green Kids Crafts is full of eco-friendly art supplies that if bought separately would cost twice as much! It’s a great gift for grandparents to send in the mail that you can be sure will be used for months after the holidays are done.
Remember how much you enjoyed playing with your Spirograph? Well, they’re still around and more addictive than ever! This Spirograph Design Tin Set is a great gift for kids that’ll be travelling and is perfect for entertaining at restaurants.
Is your son crazy about drawing and all things Anime? What about buying him an online drawing course on Drawing Anime Style from Craftsy? It’s an intermediate class so make sure he already has drawing basics down but with 7 different online lessons he can learn at his own pace, this is sure to be a gift he can enjoy for a lifetime!
Gifts Under $10
If you’re looking for either small gifts under $10 or large stocking stuffers, World Market is the place to be! I know my boys would love the 3D Drawing Pad, Robot Paper Doll Chain, or Flip & Draw Superheroes shoved in their stockings. Less candy (and a smaller dental bill!) sounds pretty good too!
We’re absolutely crazy about this Royal & Langnickel Drawing Essentials Keep N’ Carry Set! We take our sets to the zoo, in the car, to restaurants, doctor appointments…you name it, we’ve taken it there. The sets are small enough to fit in a large purse or bag so I don’t have to worry about my boys having to hold them when they’re done working. Can’t suggest this gift enough!
My final advice for buying creative gifts for boys is to just buy basic craft supplies that they can use all year round! Discount School Supply has a great selection and prices to match. Some of my favorite stocking stuffers are Chubby Paint Brushes, Multicultural Crayola Markers, and Chubby Crayons.

What a great list…..Thanks for the idea on the Anime drawing, my daughter loves drawing anime and I”m at a loss for Christmas gifts for her….this was helpful. I love sewing, building things out of wood, diy, anything crafty or that I can get my hands into.
