Five Top Birthday Ideas for Three Year Old Boys

September 17, 2015

Today is the third birthday of the very youngest of our FIVE BOYS, prompting us to assemble our top birthday picks for three year old boys!  

Happy Birthday Gorgeous GUS. 

Here are our picks for perfect presents for three year old boys:


1. A dinosaur T-Shirt!

From Lion of Leisure, this organic T-Rex t-shirt - and now with the T-rex cushion too. Pleased to Eat You... we haven't met a child who hasn't loved this yet! Joined by the Blah Blah Blah Triceratops - for buddy paleontologists! Or just boys with a cheeky sense of humour.


2. Wayne the Shark Sweater - 100% organic and fun fun fun.

The colours cleverly used by Gardner and the Gang designer mean that this one will nearly all boys. Team down with a pair of jeans - or wear it wild with some colourful trousers or the matching shark leggings.

3. Star Wars T-Shirt! 

Having spent the last few years hiding light sabres on top of the fridge, this t-shirt ticks all the boxes - a Star Wars present - without the dagger eyes from the parents as the crazy storm trooper blaster is unwrapped. (I know I'm very guilty of this!).Get those excitement levels creeping up for the hotly anticipated Star Wars film. (Even if they are not going to be allowed to watch it they'll be excited!)

4. Fox or Wolf hat.From LuluZulu.

In non-itchy merino wool all five of the boys wanted this when they saw it. Seriously popular present.

5. And finally, a great one for brownie points from Mama - harems and leggings. 


Honestly... bear with us while we explain.

Harem pants, and leggings, could not be better designed to help busy three year olds. Made from soft fabrics and with elasticated waists and cuffs they are easy on and off trousers for increasingly independent little people and they have the added advantage of being cuffed or tapered at the the ankle so slide in and out of wellies as the autumnal months come upon us. And in these fantastic prints - worth a try! Trust us, you'll become a fan just like we are!

Clothing. Is it a good gift for three year old boys?

Well, they don't wear uniform, so need lots of clothes, and their gorgeous characters are becoming  clearly defined by their outward actions - and interactions - as they get more independent.

Also uncluttering, fun and functional - the perfect parent pleaser! And we hope you'd agree that these funky pieces will be popular with those little people too.

Size Chart
**Please note, we are always happy to measure individual pieces for you.**
**Please email us directly at**

At "Five Boys Clothing" we offer as much guidance as possible when it comes to sizing as we know that age is not an exact science when it comes to measuring for the right size clothing.

Any European brands provide a height measurement - and we always attempt to describe the fit. Please find a guide to European sizing below.

The European size is based on the actual height in centimeters, example a size 122 means 122 centimeter, that is for a child in height 122 centimeter each centimeter = 0.39 inch, each inch = 2.54 centimeters













EU Size (cm)













As with all things this is not an exact science. If you normally buy big - we recommend you buy big, and vice versa.

When relevant, we identify whether products are true to size, big for size or small for size.

If you need any help regarding specific sizes please contact us at and we'll get staright back to you.

PS: Don't forget we do offer returns so if you want to try the products we're happy to send them out to you.
