If you are struggling with what type of gift to give to your older boys, I feel your pain!  Now that I have tween boys, the gift-giving has gotten a lot harder. But I think I have found a solution that will make most boys very happy: LEGO BrickSwag Subscription Box.

LEGO BrickSwag Subscription Box

We received a LEGO BrickSwag box to try out and my boys are hooked!  Each box comes with an exclusive LEGO-Themed T-shirt, LEGO bricks you keep, Funky Fig Trading Cards, Build Magazine, and more surprises. 

We received the November box and it had some fun Thanksgiving-related activities for my boys to build.

There were detailed instructions and LEGO bricks for building a turkey,

and a mini-Build Challenge that encourages you to get creative and build something with a limited amount of bricks that are provided.  You can submit your creation to LEGO for a chance to win a prize.  Our challenge was to build a feast-themed creation only using the Challenge Pack. One of my boys created a “feast carrier” to make it so you can transport your feast easily and the other built a “Fancy Thanksgiving Place”.  You might have to use your imagination as well.

They are also enjoying the t-shirt, LEGO drinking cup, and poster for their room.

I think the best thing about giving a LEGO subscription box as a gift is that it can be the gift that keeps on giving as they receive something new every month.  We are looking forward to the December box which they have hinted will have something to do with The Force (Star Wars!).  My boys will be over-the-moon when that box arrives.

I was impressed with the amount of things that came in our BrickSwag box and I am looking forward to seeing what comes next month.
