25 Teen Guy Gift Ideas
Teens are so hard to buy for in general – it's no easy task keeping up with what's trendy and they're not the most helpful when it comes to communicating their wish list…. I completely get that!
That's why I asked my team here at PPP to help me compile a list of good gift ideas for teen guys. These include things we know our boys love, as well as big trends we've seen popping up already this holiday season.
Hopefully this list of 25 Teen Guy Gift Ideas that will help you get started on your holiday shopping a little early. In this list you'll find gifts for ever budget – from sketch pads and pens to the newest game systems coming out this year.
25 Christmas Gift Ides for Teen Guys
1 . Skateboard
Get your music loving hipster a vintage style turntable for their tunes! These are back in a big way with the cool kids 😉
3 . AirPods Pro
These upgraded AirPods are super popular for their noise cancelling qualities and customized fit – all while surrounding you with the music using “spatial audio with dynamic head tracking” (Yeah we don't know what that means either)
4 . Nintendo Switch or Switch OLED
Gaming systems are SUPER hard to come by this year with chip shortages – so your kid might be setting aside dreams of the PS5 or the XBox X Series once again in favor of a Nintendo Switch this year. The new Switch OLED is likely at the top of their Switch list – but they've been sold out for a month now 🙁
5 . Carharrt Hoodies
This is an easy go-to gift that's both practical and a best seller on Amazon right now – choose from loads of colors and sizes!
6 . Experience Gifts
For the kid who has all the things – gift them an experience, whether it's a trip or just a trip to the climbing gym – here are some ideas:
7 . LEGO Sets
Any teens who grew up loving LEGO probably still do – and with LEGO coming out with more and more crazy cool sets they might be excited to find one of these under the tree (Sorted from $ to $$$):
I'd never in my life heard of this one until several readers pointed out their teens wanted these – you order a bottle in your color choice, customize with the Gatorade pods – and they fit together to make a bottle of Gatorade! Gimmicky? Probably… Will your teen love it? Most definitely!
9 . Punching Bag
For the teen wanting to get in shape – this punching bag might be a great gift. It comes with some beginner gloves, hand wraps, and a speedbag as well.
10 . Guitar
Whether your teen guy is into the acoustic guitar or wants to rock out – these Fender Squier's are a good beginner option that isn't junk and will stand the test of time.
11 . Carharrt Beanie
The Carharrt Beanie is iconic and a statement piece for guys and gals alike – it's a perfect practical cool-weather accessory that's also “in” right now.
12 . Oculus Quest 2
On the pricey side for sure – the Oculus Quest 2 might be one of those “family gifts” if you have a couple kids who'd enjoy this together.
13 . Car Care Accessories
For the guy who looooooves his ride, this under $20 Armor All Bucket is a steal for some of the nice products he'll want to keep his whip looking shiny and new.
14 . LED Strip Lights
These have been around a little while now but if your teen doesn't have them yet it's a fun gift for them to give their bedroom a cool vibe!
15 . Drone
These days kids are getting super creative with drone footage – and this one is a best seller on Amazon with stellar reviews!
For the serious gamer – they'll love this highly-rated backlit gaming keyboard by well-known brand Razer!
17 . Mountain Bike
This Hyper Havoc 24″ Mountain Bike is a good affordable option – and one that will last a couple years of roaming around town (for those non drivers) and meeting up with friends.
18 . Nice Mic for Gaming
If your teen likes online gaming or streaming their games on YouTube – they may have mentioned wanting a nice clear mic like this one! For under $40 this one gets crazy good reviews. (And would work just great for any Zoom calls you have to hop on as well)
19 . Shoes
Guys shoe preferences differ WILDLY – so it's definitely gonna depend on what they're signature style is – from Crocs to Converse, Hey Dudes to Adidas Slides – all our teen guys are wanting SOME kind of shoe this year!
20 . GiftCards
Some of our MOST successful teen guy gifts have been Xbox Giftcards, Playstation Giftcards, or Fast Food giftcards!
Load them up with some giftcards to places they love to stop for food – or allow them to pick out games they want with gaming giftcards. Amazon giftcards are a great option too!
American Eagle has a nice assortment of young guys' scents for a reasonable price.
For the artsy and the doodlers – a nice sketchpad and a set of dual brush markers will make a happy teen!
23 . Flannel Shirt
24 . A good book!
This can be a little more meaningful – think of a book that really hit you as a teen, or would grab them where they are right now – and gift a nice copy with an inscription.
I'd love to hear any more teen guy gift ideas you have!
For those not wanting Airpods – they're likely wanting Beats – and these are a steal at Target right now!
