We know what little boys want for their birthday or Christmas!

It may not always be easy to know what present to get for a small boy; what is hot this year? Is Thomas the Tank Engine still popular? We have done the research for you: we asked the parents of some one- to five-year-olds what their boys like, and we've found lots of the best things for you to choose from for your favourite preschooler. If you do not see something suitable on this page, use our Search option to look for more ideas!

Get a present that you know he will love!

The gift ideas that we suggest have all been selected by parents with preschoolers, so you know the little chap will love our ideas. We have carefully selected a range of presents for boys aged 3, 4, and 5 from top online suppliers such as Hamleys.

  • Do you have suggestions for improving this site? Let us know!
  • Help!

    How to find Gift Ideas

    At the top of each page you'll see a row of orange tabs labelled with types of occasions (Birthdays, Anniversaries, etc.) When you hover your pointer over these, a row of additional choices will pop up below. For example, if you hover over "Anniversaries", the additional options that appear are "Any", "Silver", "Pearl" and so on. Choose one of the additional options, and you'll then see a selection of ideas for that occasion. These are just a few of the hundreds of ideas we have for each occasion, and they include ideas for men and women and at various prices. If you don't see anything there that catches your attention, or if you'd like to see some more suggestions, use the Search Options (see the next topic).

    Using the Search Options

    On every page you'll see a box, just below the row of orange tabs, where you can enter some details about the person you're buying a gift for.

    Country

    Currently, we only have gifts from UK suppliers. We will be adding suppliers form the US and Australia/New Zealand soon; if you would like us to let you know when these are available, send us a note via the Contact form.

    Price

    There are two boxes for price: From and To. Enter the range that you are prepared to spend in these boxes.

    Age

    This box is shown on most pages, but in some cases (eg, Newborn Baby or 18th Birthday) it isn't shown. If it's there, enter the person's age (take a guess if you're not sure!)

    Gender

    You probably know the gender of the person ... but in some cases (for example if you are buying a wedding anniversary gift for a couple) this isn't relevant. In that case, choose Either.

    Hobbies and Interests

    If you know that the person has a particular hobby or interest, such as golf, sailing, horses, and so on, you can enter up to three of them into the three boxes. Be sure to put just one interest in each box! When the search is done, it will only find things that are relevant to those interests.

    Go Fer It!

    When you're happy with your search options, click the Go Fer It button. We'll then search our database and present you with a list of suggested gifts for that person. They are displayed in a scrolling conveyor-belt style list - scroll along to see what's there. When something catches your eye, click on it and the product's full details will open in a new window.

    Saving Your Searches

    After you've done a search you will see an option, above the scrolling conveyor belt, to save your search. This makes it easy for you to come back another time and quickly find more ideas for the same person, or for another person of a similar age. You'll need to create a GiftGofers account (it's very simple and only takes a minute) and then you will be able to go to the My Stuff tab to review your saved searches (and lots of other useful stuff!).

    Wish Lists

    As you are browsing the super ideas we suggest for you, you'll probably see some things that you would love to get for yourself. When this happens, click on the Wish List icon to save that item to your personal Wish List. You will then be able to send your Wish List to your friends and family so they'll know exactly what to get YOU for your next birthday or Christmas present!

    Any Questions?

    If you have any questions about GiftGofers, please use the Contact Us link that's at the top of every page to send us a message. We love to hear form our visitors! Please let us know if you have any feedback or suggestions for ways that we could improve GiftGofers.com!

    About GiftGofers.com

    GiftGofers.com is a place to come and find ideas for presents for all sort of occasions: birthdays, Christmas, wedding anniversaries ... just about any gift-giving occasion!

    What Makes us Special?

    Our gift ideas have all been carefully selected by people of various ages and interests. so you can be sure that the things we suggest will be what people really want to receive rather than somebody's idea of what they might like. Suppose you need to find something for your aunt and uncle's silver wedding anniversary. Do you think they really want an engraved silver plate, or a newspaper from the day they were married? No! What they'd really love to receive is a champagne balloon flight, or a West End theatre trip, or a couple of bottles of good wine ... And how about your nine-year-old nephew? What do little boys want this year? Do a GiftGofers search and you'll find lots of excellent suggestions at various prices!

    Whose products do we Sell?

    We have thousands of products in our database, from a variety of reputable online retailers. You'll recognise big names such as NotOnTheHighStreet, Hamleys, Getting Personal, H. Samuel, Flowercard, and many others. Some of our suppliers are small, specialty companies who supply unique, original products that you won't find on the High Street. Because we represent such a variety of retailers, we can suggest a wide range of products at various prices for men and women, boys and girls, of all ages.

    What about payment and shipping?

    We do not handle any payments or shipping. When you see something you like on our website, simply click on the product to go directly to the retailer's website and purchase the item directly from them. There's no middleman to deal with.
