Nature-loving 6-year-old boys enjoy outdoor gifts to use while camping with family, going on a hike or spending the weekend with fellow Cub Scouts on an outdoor excursion. Outdoor presents can have a camping theme, but some outdoor gifts are made for boys who just love to play in the dirt in their own backyard. Buy him a present that matches the season, so he can enjoy it right away. Outdoor water gifts work well in spring or summer, but some can work for almost any season, even winter.

Gardening Gifts

Many 6-year-old boys love to dig and the dirt and help Mom garden. Buy him a few gardening gifts that can help him get the job done. A kid's gardening caddie includes rakes, shovels, seed packets and other tools needed for planting. A small wheelbarrow, gardening gloves and a water can also come in handy. He might also enjoy colourful ceramic pots with herb and grass seed packets.

Dinosaur Gifts

Buy a dinosaur-loving 6-year-old boy prehistoric-inspired gifts that he can use outdoors. Dinosaur excavation kits include plastic or ceramic dinosaur bones, maps and digging tools for outdoor play. Bury the bones in your backyard and encourage your son to dig them up. He can also bury the bones and dig them up later on his own. In addition, you can purchase plastic dinosaurs with fake rocks and volcanoes for him to play with outdoors. Other outdoor dino gifts that might appeal to a 6-year-old are clear balls with dinosaurs inside or plastic dinosaur finger puppets.

Camping Gifts

Find outdoor camping gifts for a 6-year-old boy who loves camping with his parents or Cub Scout pack. Buy him essentials such a frog- or other animal-themed sleeping bag, child's water bottle and compass. Little campers might also enjoy a kid's size hiking backpack filled with protein bars, binoculars, trail mix and other treats. Just make sure to buy child-size versions of camping gear, because adult camping gear doesn't appeal to a 6-year-old.

Beach Gifts

Beach gifts also work well as outdoor presents for 6-year-old boys. Buy him a kid's towel with sharks or surfers printed on it. Give him a sandcastle kit that includes shovels, buckets, rakes and other tools needed to make a sand castle. He might also like a shark-themed beach bag filled with kids' sunglasses, water guns and inflatable beach balls. In addition, toy boys and other inflatable toys are also a hit at the beach.
