My daughter is currently 8 and her interests mostly revolve around animals, cooking, art, and reading. When my son was 8, he was all about being active, pretend weapons, and detectives. Finding gifts for this age will be dependent on the specific child. However, there are some gifts that are pretty safe bets. Here are a few of the best gifts for 8 year olds based on what the kids in my own family have enjoyed.
My FAVORITE gift to give to 8 year olds, especially active ones, is a set of 4 ft soccer goals. My kids have loved playing with these goals. They don’t always use them, but they throw them in the car anytime we are going to be somewhere with a grassy field. They have gotten more use than practically any other item my kids have owned in this age range.
