Finding a gift for an 11-year-old boy is not as easy as you might think. First, the gift has to reflect the boy's interest, which could be anything from sports to music. Second, the gift should be something useful to the child, and be physically or mentally stimulating.
Other People Are Reading
If the child is particularly interested in some sport, then your gift needs to reflect it. Give the child the piece of equipment or apparel he lacks. For example, if his sport is soccer, you could give him a soccer ball. If the kid plays hockey, you can give him a hockey jersey.
The old-fashioned gift of reading is another option. Target the interests of the child. Many boys are interested in military history. There are many books available on that subject. Look for books with colourful images and descriptions of tanks, warships or military aircraft. Space exploration is another area that might interest a boy. Make sure, however, that the book contains detailed technical descriptions that many 11-year-old boys can not only learn from, but also understand.
Educational Computer Games
There are many computer games that incorporate information about world history, geography or natural sciences. There are also computer games that simulate real-world business situations, allowing your child to gain practical skills and theoretical knowledge about markets, economics, management and marketing. Pay attention, however, to the age group the educational computer game was designed for.
