If you&#39;re looking for a big ticket item, iPods, GameBoys, and the Nintendo DS, or Nintendo DSi are wonderful gift ideas for boys. If your tween already has those items, consider a game or an accessory for the item. For example, you could purchase a carrying case for his iPod, or a game for his DS. There are numerous games on the market for hand held gaming systems, be sure you choose one that appeals to your child&#39;s interests. If he loves dinosaurs, for example, consider the Fossil Fighters game.</p>Boys love anything that appeals to their sense of humor or that&#39;s gross or weird. When considering gift ideas for boys, try to find something that&#39;s a little wacky. One such book that appeals to tween boys is <em>Oh, Yikes! History&#39;s Grossest, Wackiest, Moments</em> by Joy Masoff. This book is funny, gross and reveals true facts from history such as how knights in full armor went to the bathroom, why pirates liked eating in the dark, and other freakish facts most people wondered about, but never asked.Nobody can resist a Slinky, but the Light-Up Slinky is particularly appealing to tween boys. The Light-Up Slinky contains LED lights that illuminate the toy, and make it a fun game for sleepover parties, or for anytime. Other novelty gift ideas for boys include anything that glows-in-the-dark or fall into the &#34;prankster&#34; category of gifts, such as a rubber chicken, a whoopee cushion, or a magic kit.Movies are always fun, and can be used for Family Movie Night, a sleepover, or on a rainy day, when there&#39;s nothing else to do. Family movies are worth considering as gift ideas for boys, but be sure you pick a movie that boys won&#39;t mind watching over and over. Comedies are always a good idea, and look for movies with movie stars that appeal to the preteen set. Possible movie choices could include: <em>Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, Transformers, How to Eat Fried Worms, Spiderman, Pirates of the Caribbean,</em> and <em>Nacho Libre</em>.
