8 Wow factor Christmas gifts for boys

8 Wow factor Christmas gifts for boys

Firstly I must apologise for using the ‘C word’ in September. But I have an idea that could make you a very popular [delete as appropriate] mum/auntie/grandma/friend/dad/godmother/neighbour/other at Christmas time.

I have just sewn another knight hoodie for another nephew for another birthday present. They were both thrilled and delighted with their hoodies, so I figure that it would be a much appreciated gift for any little boy.

With 113 days* left till Christmas, you could plan ahead and purchase the pattern now in September, buy the fabric in October, sew it in November  and still be ready to wrap it up and give it to a lucky little boy in December. How’s that for PPP (prior planning & preparation)? But the PPP I’m talking about today is Perfect Pattern Parcel (more about that later).

Why is the knight hoodie such a good present?


1  It has instant WOW factor

2  Chances are the recipient (or anyone else they know) won’t already have one

3  It can be for girls too

4  It helps children develop their imagination

5  It protects you from the cold (and dragons)

6  It’s an icebreaker. You’re more likely to talk to someone wearing a knight hoodie? “Love your hoodie, where did you get it?”

7  It’s not difficult to sew even if you’re a beginner (a brave one)

9  You will be considered the cleverest person ever for having made such a cool hoodie

In case you were wondering, my daughter gallantly stepped in to model my nephew’s knight hoodie, whilst he was off rescuing a fair maiden.

I can’t think of many other Christmas presents that would be as praiseworthy  and well received as a knight hoodie, but here are 7 others that have wow factor. I suggest you only consider them if you haven’t got a sewing machine…

  1. Safari: A Photicular Book by Dan Kainen
  2. Hexbugs with track
  3. VW Camper Van pop up tent
  4. Giant Gummy Cola Bottle
  5. Colour changing umbrella
  6. Handmade London Musical box
  7. Chill Factor Slushy Maker

Can you think of any others?

  1. OMG! You didn’t just type the C word? I love the knight hoodie I would probably need you to drop the C word in June to ensure I would make it by Christmas. I agree with some of your Christmas gifts I think hex bugs are so cool. I also think Heelies and Miffy books are good presents. Your nephews are very lucky.
