We know that teen boys can be some of the most difficult to find gifts for – we have 5 sons in our two families! But we asked our group of experienced parents and they gave us these great ideas for Christmas gifts.
Best Christmas gift ideas for teen boys
This is likely to be the IT gift for holiday 2020 gifting for your game-obsessed teen boy. With incredibly speed and a more powerful CPU, it has “backward compatibility” to improve existing games. If this is on your teen’s birthday or Christmas list, be ready to pounce on it the moment it’s released.
How great is it that our teens have rediscovered Ray Ban sunglasses? There are so many styles to choose from that you’ll need some help picking which one you think he would love the most.
This portable system from Nintendo has been a game changer, literally. It’s easy for teens to take their gaming devices with them when they get together with friends and they can play almost anywhere. It’s compatible with Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and other well-known games.
This charging station is made by Belkin, the #1 brand optimized for Apple products. Now your son can charge his phone and AirPods wirelessly and super-fast, side-by-side. It’s compatible with all Qi-enabled devices, including iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS, XS Max, XR, X, 8, 8 Plus, AirPods, AirPods 2, AirPods Pro, Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, S20 Ultra, S10, S10+, S10e, S9, S9+, Note10, Note10+, Note9, Google Pixel 4, 4XL, 3, 3XL and more.
This gaming headset has loads of options and excellent audio quality, according to reviewers at PC magazine. It has both Bluetooth and wired connectivity offering a back-up plan if Bluetooth is unavailable.
This well-priced gaming headset can also be used as over-the-ear headphones. They work with PCs, mobile devices and recent-generation gaming systems.
Not saying that our teens sons can be a little casual with their expensive tech equipment, but why not build in extra padding around their laptops just in case they drop them? This sleeve gets great reviews and we love the exterior pocket where there’s room to store lots of other things – charging cables, a phone, and more.
Soap, for a Christmas gift? Seriously? Yes, seriously. Duke Cannon is a military-inspired men’s grooming brand that packs a good bit of humor into well-regarded products. Take a look at the product line and start here, with this trio of Great American Frontier Soaps and the bourbon-inspired Solid Cologne.
Being able to play music through a powerful, but lightweight and compact Bluetooth speaker is a fun thing to do and the Flip4 is one of the most popular devices.
Here is the 2021 set of the game that so many of our teen sons are playing.
If you’re looking for a way to get your son out of the house to do something physical that does NOT involve a screen, Spikeball is your answer.
Skateboards may never be the same now that they are powered and have a remote-controlled device to help regulate speed.
Your son can customize the look of his bedroom, or dorm room, with LED lights that are available on a strip that he can tape to surfaces. Remote control included.
Another way to add unique lighting to a room is with this “moon light” that has 16 different colors.
This is the virtual reality headset that gets top reviews and looks like an amazing gaming headset with hundreds of games available in the library. This one gets high marks for the comfort of the headset and the ease of use.
One thing that’s been fun for our teens to be able to do is stream a movie or sporting event through a portable projector for a group to watch together. This is a well-regarded model and how much fun would outdoor viewing be right now?
We all need face masks and having one from sport-wear company, Champion, would be a very practical gift this holiday. Made of wicking fabric, they lay flat to dry and get great reviews about them.
Uniqlo offers an amazing number of well-priced and durable jackets for men and women. We like these lightweight parkas that are available in many colors.
We were curious when we began hearing about underwear in our Grown and Flown Facebook Group that members described as “life changing” for their sons and husbands. When we watched the very clever video on the Amazon site describing the attributes, and well, we thought it would be a fitting end of our Christmas list!
Happy shopping and happy holidays, 2020.
