  1. Portable Car Charger – These things are amazing to have on hand! Might not be the most exciting gift under the tree, but they will thank you when they leave their lights on during the school day. Safely jump start a dead battery in seconds with this compact, yet powerful, 1000-amp portable lithium car battery jump starter pack. A great thing to have in a teens car!

2. Bose Portable Speaker – A great speaker to play music on anywhere they go.


 

3. Event Tickets: This is a favorite among teens. It also creates memories and guarantees some one-on-one time with him!  You can ask the teenager on your list for a list of their favorite bands, theatrical events, or teams. Then browse some ticket sites like Stubhub to see what’s available. 


4. Nike Tights – Teen boys are loving these!


5. Vans shoes -Whip out that mixtape, because everything 80’s is back in style.  These checkered Vans shoes are the must-have item at Junior High Schools around the country.


6. Portable Projector – How fun is this?!  Imagine being able to project a movie onto any wall in your home when friends come over.  My teenagers would love to get this so they can show movies in the backyard on warm summer nights. Just throw some lounge chairs, sleeping bags, or bean bags into the yard and enjoy an evening under the stars with a favorite movie.


7. Nike Elite Socks – This recommendation came straight from a teenager boy!


8. Tile Mate “I bought some of these tiles a couple years ago for my teenage son and they saved his sanity many times! If he forgets where he parked, can’t find his keys, lost his phone, or has another item he can’t seem to keep track of, these will change his life.”


9. Hammock –  I love that these pack up in a small bag. Great for camping. 


10. One Night Werewolf – A popular game among tweens and teens.


11.Sports SwagIt’s likely the teen boy you’re buying for has a favorite team. One idea is to give them some team gear.


12. PlayStation Games – This will really depend on what gaming console your teenager might have but consider adding a few more games to his stash!


13. Spikeball – A high energy game that can be played inside or outside.


14. Airpods – Do we even need to make a pitch for these?! Teens love them!


15. Outdoor Jenga – This starts at 2.5 feet tall and can build up to 5 feet! A great game to play outside with friends.


16. Drone Flying objects are a no-brainer for a teenage boy. Plus think of the amazing pictures that can be taken from a drone!


17. Smart Plugs – “Alexa, turn off my lights.” I have no doubt teen boys will love having control of their devices with an echo dot around. These are easy to set up too!


18. Hydroflask – Pretty sure every tween or teen has one of these. Lots of different colors!


19. Starter Tool Kit – If your teen is getting close to moving out on their own, it might be a good idea to get them their own tool kit. They will thank you when they have to assemble their first piece of Ikea furniture.

    Spike all looks awesome! I never would have dreamed of that! AND, they are using their bodies and not their screens! Thank you, ladies.

    As a person who has had to jumpstart their car several times, I think the Portable Battery Charger is a great idea for girls and guys.

    My fav has to be the Bose speaker. A coworker has one and it sounds amazing. I’ve been wanting one and I’m sure my grandson would love it

    The portable projector is a favorite of my kiddos, especially during the pandemic. They have been able to invite their friends over and stream a movie outside on the garage door for a “drive-in” movie night. I highly recommend it!

    Favorites from the teen boys’ guide that my 13 YO son would enjoy are the socks, sports swag (Pittsburgh Steelers is his favorite team), and the drone.

    The Smart Plugs would be the best gift for my son. I think its practical for him since he tends to forget to turn things off and when he is in bed he doesn’t want to get up to turn things off, with this smart plug he can just tell Alexa what he wants her to do for him that he won’t get up to do himself. But obviously not cook lol.
