Construction-themed bedroom collection by Brett Blumenthal
What’s the best gift to give a growing little boy? While toys and clothes are both good choices, those items aren’t likely to last. Little boys outgrow their clothes and their toys—sometimes it seems by the very next day! So what do you do when you’re searching for a gift that will be a part of his life for years to come?
Well, at Mouse + Magpie, we offer unique and playful items with practical value that aren’t size dependent—items your little boy won’t outgrow in a few months and will want to use again and again! If this sounds like the type of gift you’re seeking for a little boy in your life, check out our guide to our top present ideas for boys.
Whether your little boy is just learning to read or is already mastering chapter books, having a lamp on his desk offers him just the right light to enjoy his stories. For boys in elementary school, it also provides an intimate light for doing homework. Of course, a fun, printed lampshade turns a functional light into a favorite playmate!
This creative dinosaur lamp is perfect for a little boy, whether he’s a budding paleontologist or simply a “Jurassic Park” fan.
