Finding great gift ideas for teen boys can be way more challenging than shopping for toddlers. This year I had a chat with my teenage boys and a bunch of their friends to find out what’s hot, what’s not and where to find it all!

So whether you are a parent, a grandparent, aunt or uncle to a teen boy, I have the perfect shopping list for you! Gift ideas range from $20 – $200 and cover categories like sports equipment, fashion accessories, electronics, hobbies and much more.

Getting the perfect gift from the comfort of home is the best thing about the internet! Have fun shopping!




Video Games

XBOX live gold is a one year pass to online access for the xbox console user. The year starts from the moment the numbers are entered so even if your teen already has XBOX live, this card will still be of value when it’s time for them to renew.

Electronics are always a big draw for teens. Rather than hand over money which is boring and un-festive, you can definitely make their little teen faces light up with these cool gadgets!

This is the “google home” equivalent. Just shout out your command and Echo makes it happen. The only way i’m getting one of these is if it cooks and cleans on command!

With all our music being stored digitally these days, it’s easier than ever to carry a tiny ghetto-blaster around. Just look for Bluetooth and waterproof and your golden!

I can’t tell you how many headphones have lived and died in my house! We have gone through so many pairs as a family that we could probable fill a laundry basket full! Having said that, we can’t live without them so we might as well get that kind that last longest! These sweat proof, magnetic, tiny buds headphones are the best at this price range! (Now if we could just get the kitty cat to stop snacking on them it would be even better!)

How fun is this little gadget! The perspective you get from this camera drone is fantastic. Especially when camping or at the beach!

This fooseball table requires tennis ball feet because it shakes around alot. It’s pretty tough, though it’s not as sturdy as a high end one.
