Gift ideas for 8 year olds

This is a paid post in collaboration with Wicked Uncle.

My youngest turned 8 at the beginning of February. If you would have told me a year ago, we would have all celebrated a birthday in lockdown I most definitely wouldn’t have believed you. It’s been such a strange year, celebrating birthdays have felt even more important than ever before.

It can be hard to know what gifts to buy, I always head over to the Wicked Uncle website without fail as they have some brilliant children’s presents and their site is packed full of ideas for children of all ages. 


Here are some gift ideas for 8-year-old that have gone done really well with M. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end for your chance to win Quizzie the cheeky robot too!

Gift ideas for 8-year-olds

Top Trumps

We have quite the collection of these in our home but the boys can never get enough of a new set of Top Trumps. For M’s birthday, we got him the Battleships set as he has recently really gotten in battle and warship games.


Battleships Shots Strategy Ball-Bouncing Game

Speaking of which, this Battleships Shots strategy game will provide hours of fun. It’s a twist on the classic Battleship game where you use balls to sink your opponent’s ships by bouncing them over the divide.


Brainbolt Brain Teaser

If you have kids that love to solve puzzle and memory games then the 

BrainBolt Brain Teaser would make a fantastic gift. Challenge your brain by remembering the light sequence but a word of warning – this game is addictive! There are two modes, solo and two-player so you can play with a friend. Best of all, it’s handheld and portable.



Quizzie is a cheeky robot that lets you record up to five questions with Yes/No answers so you can test your friends knowledge. If they answer incorrectly, Quizzie will squirt water in their face! There are also other modes of play where you can play a memory game or a Lucky mode where you can be randomly squirted with water!


I have one Quizzie to giveaway – read on to find out how to enter below.

Character T-shirts

As they grow older, kids start to take more of an interest in what they wear. It could be the latest fad they’re into; computer game, cartoon character or even their favourite animal. M has loved pugs for the longest time so I knew he would love this pug tshirt. He is also massively into the game Among Us so branded t-shirts and hoodies of them also went down really well too.


Multi-use Games controller

A multi-use games controller allows them to have their own unique controller that is easily identifiable as theirs. They can be compatible with consoles and PCs and are wireless and easy to connect so they can play their favourite games.
