Non Toy Gift Ideas for 9 Year Old Boys

This post contains affiliate links.

Dinomite's birthday is in January, but we rarely have a gathering with extended family at that time because of weather, travel, and the fact that we've just had Christmas.  For the past few years, he's celebrated his birthday with his brother.  Such will also be the case this year.  And then the wishlist will carry over to Christmas as well.

Dinomite has embraced the non toy wish list this year, knowing he doesn't have room for anything else in his room and he doesn't want to part with anything he has.  So, I give you Dinomite's list, which he put together all by himself.  (He loves window shopping on Amazon.)

Dinomite has always loved dinosaurs and I believe he always will.  It's just who he is.  Here are his favorite picks this year!  

DVD: Walking with Dinosaurs the Movie (Purchased)

Dinomite's love of birds is so contageous.  He LOVES bird watching and is always on the look out for new birds, trying to memorize their songs etc.  One can never be surrounded by too many birds.

Book: Extreme Birds

Hopper Feeder with Suet Cages

Book: Birds of Paradise

Sharks have been a favorite animal of Dinomite's for years.  He just can't get enough of them, and I can't blame him.  I like them too.  Surprisingly, Dinomite doesn't have many shark themed books, movies etc.  And though he has a few teeth, he doesn't have a guide to determine which kind of sharks they come from, so he was ecstactic when we found a jaw, teeth, and a guide.

In case you can't tell, Dinomite loves animals, insects included.  Yet, like sharks, he doesn't have many books, etc.  Oh, and for those wondering about the coloring book, Dinomite has found that coloring relaxes him, and so he's always asking for a new coloring book.

Over the past year, Dinomite has read four of the Harry Potter books, and is now working on the fifth.  He's slightly obsessed, and would love to build his collection of Harry Potter things.

Dinomite also enjoys superheroes, especially Batman.  Whether it be art for his wall, a book, an apron, a pillow or chewie necklace, Dinomite is a happy kid when surrounded by superheroes.

Our house has been filled with Star Wars for quite some time.  Dinomite loved it first, then it became Bulldozer's first love.  Now they both love it and can't get enough of it.

For extended family using this list for gift ideas, and would prefer giving Dinomite an experience, he's quite particular about what he likes, but when we get it right, he's the happiest kid alive.  Here are some gift cards that Dinomite is sure to enjoy!

Mark's Pizzeria




A.C. Moore

Dinomite enjoys clothes, and is quite particular about what he wears.  He prefers clothes with no buttons, snaps, and/or zippers, loves to be comfortable, and tends to like shirts with graphics of animals, dinosaurs, etc.  Dinomite wears a size 10 top and size 10 bottom.

 Happy shopping!
