I can’t believe that I am now the mom of a teenager! Shopping for boys gets incredibly hard as they get older. Family members keep asking me what he wants for birthdays or Christmas and I have no idea. Older boys can be hard to buy for, which is why I wanted to create this list of Top Gift Ideas for Teen Boys, to help those who are at a loss of what to buy their teen boy.


Gift Ideas for Teen Boys

Now that my boys are getting older, their gift requests are getting more expensive.   I hope you find something your teen boy will love in this list. I mean, I see some of these gift ideas for teen boys that I would like for myself.

Christmas Gift Ideas for Teen Boys

      1. Beats: I know my son is dreaming of having these! Who wouldn’t? Beats are the hottest headphones on the market and any teen boy would love to have them! If you are looking for headphones that are a bit less-expensive, here are some great ones.

      2. Sports Team Gear: My boys each have their favorite sports teams that they follow and they would love anything with their team’s logo on it. This is our favorite place to buy clothing and other items from our favorite teams.Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear
      3. 3D Printer: My oldest has been begging for a 3D printer.  There are so many amazing things that teenagers could make if they had one.  They are a bit pricey, but I know of some teens making a business out of the things they create. Perfect gift for a budding entrepreneur!

      4. Bean Bag: Teen boys love to hang out with their friends and having a few seating options in their room is fun.  A bean bag chair or inflatable chair would be a fun gift.
