Birthday gifts for boys under $20

Filed under: Toys, Birthdays, Shopping

A wrapped presentThe other day, Bethany Sanders offered up some suggestions for inexpensive gifts for girls. Being a guy, I thought I'd chime in with some thoughts on some cool gifts for boys, just in case you're not quite sure what it is that little boys like these days. (Hint: Little boys are just like big boys, only with a smaller allowance.)

Mind you, I'm not really into the whole boy versus girl toys and, truth be told, I've confused my fair share of drive through clerks at McDonald's when they ask if I want toys for boys or girls in my happy meals. Still, some toys are more sensitive while others are more, well, active. Whether it's nurture, nature, some combination or none of the above, surely any of these toys, when given as a gift, will mark you as a cool parent and ensure your child's name is on every birthday party guest list.

Check these out, see what you think, and if you have any other suggestions, be sure to leave them in the comments.
