18 Stylish Gifts for 11-Year-Old Boys in the UK

11-year-old boys are not children anymore, nor are they real teenagers yet. They are stuck somewhere in between childlike innocence and teenage hormones, between toys and gadgets. The boy is growing up so fast and his interests seem to be changing by the day, which makes finding the best present for an 11-year-old boy in the UK challenging to say the least.

At 11, it’s super important to find an age-appropriate gift. 11-year-olds still play with toys but buying him a toy that 9-year-old kids play with would make him feel totally embarrassed and babyed. You have to opt for a cool toy, game, or gadget. And we’re here to help!

In terms of experience gifts for 11-year-old boys, they value no experience more than playing computer or console games.

A Nintendo Switch Lite, for example, would make the best gift for an 11-year-old boy. On the other hand, if he already has one, you can always purchase new games.

When my brother was 11 years old he was obsessed with sports. He watched every game, exercised vigorously, and for a while there he practised almost every sport imaginable. His dream was to become an athlete, get 6-pack abs, and get every girl in school to fall in love with him. He had to monitor his progress manually, but he would have loved to have a device that would track it for him.

If your 11-year-old is into sports as well, you can buy him a simple waterproof digital sports watch or opt for a touch screen smartwatch and fitness tracker instead.

Slime is not a new toy. Moreover, it seems random and kind of gross. Still, kids nowadays are more obsessed with slime more than ever (go figure)!

My nephew just turned 11 and we bought him a waveboard. It was what he wanted and it turned out to be one of our best gifts ever. Why? Well, because I can’t remember the last time I saw him without it. It seems like he’s riding the thing from the moment he wakes up till the moment he goes to bed. He has lots of fun and his parents are happy as well, as he has become way more active and skilful. Plus, as it is suitable for both kids and adults, he will be able to use it for a very long time.

11-year-old girls are already into fashion. 11-year-old boys? Not so much. Nevertheless, the kid needs new clothes, as he seems to grow out of them at an alarming pace. So, if you do decide to buy him a piece of clothing (preferably a T-shirt), make sure to opt for a funny one – one that he and his silly pre-hormonal friends will find either incredibly cool or totally hilarious.

For example, opt for an ‘I Paused My Game to Be Here’ T-shirt, a ‘Level 11 Unlocked’ gaming T-shirt, or the painfully truthful ‘Warming! I’m Not Listening’ design.

If your 11-year-old actually likes to exercise, you’re lucky! Nowadays, most kids in the UK only want to play video games and perhaps watch Netflix.

He will surely get motivated (and psyched) if you buy him an adjustable basketball hoop. Not only will shooting hoops keep him healthy, but it will also improve his hand-eye coordination and help him cast his worries away.

Opt for an adjustable outdoor basketball hoop or an indoor basketball hoop instead.
