More Gift Ideas for Teenage Boys

Last year I wrote up a list of gift ideas for pre-teen and teenage boys. That post has always gotten a good amount of traffic throughout the year but especially as the holidays approach. Apparently I’m not the only one who has difficulty buying for a teenager.

Gifts for teens: more ideas for teenage boys

This year is proving to be even more difficult now that my son will be fourteen (!!) a few weeks before Christmas. With Red’s birthday also being in December, we need to come up with double the gift ideas in a short amount of time. I really should start celebrating his half birthday instead so we can get a bit of a brain break. I kid, I kid.

Some of the ideas from last year’s list still stand but I have found some new items to add for a slightly older teen. Turning thirteen and turning fourteen has been a pretty big difference. 

Check out Even More Gift Ideas for Teenage Boys for my ideas for 2014 and my Gifts for Teenage Boys Pinterest board for an ongoing list.

  1. These are too cool! Especially the “Runaway Alarm Clock”! THAT will get them out of the bed! I wish I had this when my daughter was in HS, it was a major chore waking her up! But I know this would have done the trick!

  2. My son has some of these already and loves them. I hadn’t seen the Darth stress ball, but I’m adding it to our list. Thanks

    Not for everyone, but my son really likes getting stock. (Not the oneshare decorative type) He likes VERY slowly building up a portfolio, and the risk is less than the toy that will be thrown away or clothes that are outgrown.

    We absolutely love Think Geek. For quirky shirts I’ve been getting many from They often have deals on LivingSocial or check out their daily deals.

    1. Stock is a good idea. My son is good about putting birthday and Christmas money in his savings account but this is something worth exploring.

  3. With our recently turned 16-year-old, we’ve been looking at a really nice wallet to store all of his recently acquired “cards”; drivers license, student ID, bus card, first bank card,etc.

    But I love the alarm clock that runs away. I don’t know how many times I’ve stood at the door of his room tossing things at him to try to get him to roll out of bed!

    1. A wallet is a great idea. My son has one and likes having it even if at only 13 he just uses it for lunch money and his library card.
