10th Birthday Gift Ideas and Presents for 10 Year Olds

Gift Ideas by Age

What do you get for someone who is 10 years old? They’ve reached double digits and they are quite grown-up in some ways. Brands matter.

Safety is still important – be careful of bicycles, kites and similar toys unless the child has a safe place to use them away from traffic and other hazards. Make sure sport equipment is well-made. Consider the child’s attitude, or check with parents, before giving toys that use mains electricity.

Suggestions: These children are still between children’s toys and more grown-up gifts. Books, puzzles and novelty gadgets are fairly safe – or check to see if they have any special interests, collections or musical interests. If you know the child well, you could try giving something unusual to try to spark a new interest.
