Gifting season sneaks up on the best of us, and we know buying a last-minute present is never fun (nor easy). While it feels harmless to push off holiday shopping to the final minute, it’s better to think about the gifts you want to give early on — even those presents you wish to procrastinate most, like the one for the eight-year-old in your life.
We know it’s never easy to shop for kids, and with their interests constantly changing, it can be hard to keep up with the Joneses. To make life easier, we gathered the best gifts we’re looking to get the eight-year-olds on our very own lists so that you can get your shopping done early.
From cool science kits and Lego sets to an updated version of the classic game Uno, the eight-year-old in your life better be ready for the best new toys around. Check out the unique gifts we’ve found for eight-year-olds ahead — whether they teeter little-kid or are into big-kid games — with this curated list.
Keep scrolling to see our favorite gifts for 8-year-olds, and find the best gifts for the other kids in your life with our gift guides for infants, 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, 4-year-olds, 5-year-olds, 6-year-olds, 7-year-olds, 9-year-olds, tweens, and teens.
