Are you trying to find the best gift ideas for teen boys? I’ve got you. Like in any stage of your Child’s life, gift shopping for them is either going to be super easy or impossible. There is no in-between. If this is the year it’s impossible, keep reading as I may be able to get you through this.
I strongly suggest asking your son to send you an amazon Wishlist (do NOT buy directly off that list as they can see it purchased).
Below is a list of common teen boy items. I’ve included some pricier items as well as less pricey items, and I made sure to include stocking stuffers for teen ideas.
Wireless Gaming Headset
Video Game Controller
Gift Cards for Xbox, Steam, or Playstation
Gaming Keyboard or Mouse
Charging Station For Gaming Controller
Gaming Head Phone Stand
Bluetooth Speaker for the Shower
Shower Phone Holder
If your son is in a sport, now is a great time to upgrade some items for him.
LED Light Strips
Look for deals on this. You can find some spectacular deals.
This is my son’s favourite. If you’re Canadian though, I STRONGLY suggest you run to Shoppers (don’t walk, RUN) and get their cologne sampler set. I do this every year for my husband, daughter and son. It comes with 12 samples of some of the best colognes out as well as a gift certificate for one free bottle of the cologne of their choosing (it has to be one of the 12 in the samplers). This entire thing costs $95. Last year Gucci was one of the scents so my son used the gift certificate to get the full-sized Gucci bottle. Instead of buying him a $140 bottle of cologne, I spent $95 and he got the bottle of cologne plus 12 good size samples of other colognes. It’s a phenomenal deal and I can’t rave enough about it.
Sneakers or Clothes
Unless they give you a detailed list with links of what they want for clothes or shoes, I strongly recommend you stick with money or gift cards.
Heated Mattress Pad
If you live in a cold climate area you need to think of investing in a heated mattress pad! I talk more about my winter recommendations here.
Stocking Stuffers For Teen Boys
Whatever your son likes, add it in. Chips? Candy? Chocolate bars? Ramen Noodles? Specialty Kraft dinner? Anything goes when it comes to teen boys!
I spend wayyyy to much money on gift certificates for kids. Subway, A&W, Mcdonald’s, Uber, Starbucks, Gas Cards, Tim Hortons, etc. I buy a ton of these to throw into their stockings and I swear they’re my kid’s favourite gifts. It is ridiculous.
If you have any other suggestions for amazing gifts teen boys would want, I would love to hear about them in the comment section!
