The Bible says in the book of Luke chapter two and verse 52 that the boy Jesus, “grew in wisdom, and stature, and in favor with God and man. In other words, he grew intellectually, physically, socially, and spiritually. And hopefully, your investment in the life of your young man over the years has resulted in him growing in character and health.
You can argue that twelve years old is the last year of childhood before the teen years begin. Indeed, in Jewish tradition age thirteen is considered the start of manhood, when a boy becomes accountable for his actions. So, age twelve is an important transition to manhood. As such the gifts for this age are less “toylike” and are more substantive and mature.
Our lists of gifts for your special young man this Christmas are designed not only to celebrate the birth of Jesus with giving, but to provide a celebration of this transition to adulthood with items that he will never forget. Our favorite gift in the list is the Hiland Road Hybrid Bike. It can be scaled small for juniors and intermediates, but is a serious adult bike that can grow with your young man into adulthood.
But, there are some other items on this list that are REALLY cool. One more “adult” type gift would be the GoPro Hero7 Waterproof Action Camera. It a very sophisticated way for your 12 year old to record all his athletic exploits. If he is more toy oriented, you cannot go wrong by getting a LEGO Technic Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 42093 Building Kit or a POWERUP 3.0 Original Smartphone Controlled Paper Airplanes Conversion Kit. No matter whether your twelve year old is athletic, artistic, or academic, there are items in this list that are “never fail.” Some may become scarce before Christmas so they are available to order here. Merry Christmas!
