Christmas Gift Ideas for a 13 Year Old Boy

Save

Shopping for Christmas gifts is fun when you have a clear picture of what you are looking for. Cruising down shopping aisles blindly shopping for a gift you hope might be the right one can be stressful. This is especially true when shopping for a teenage boy. Buy a gift that is not too juvenile but also not too grown up. Teenagers today are technologically savvy but also enjoy traditional age-appropriate gifts.

Technology Gifts

  • New and refurbished cell phones make good starter phones for teenagers. Choose a phone that offers phone and text service plans, a camera and video function. MP3 players and some gel headphones are technology gifts he will enjoy. Some MP3 players also have an FM and AM radio too.

Musical Instruments

  • Musical instruments make good Christmas gifts for boys. Acoustic and electric guitars are nice to give. Buy a guitar that comes with a good carrying case and any electrical equipment. Enroll your child in a guitar class to teach him how to play. Drum kits with a bass and two snare drums are a good starter set to give a drum lover. Keyboards today are easy to learn because of play-along functions and digital boards.

Grooming Kits

  • Give a grooming kit to your teenager. This could include a manicure and pedicure kit. A grooming kit should also include an electric, rechargeable razor and trimmer to keep facial hair under control. Add some good smelling cologne and after-shave to your grooming kit.

Toys

  • Even big boys like toys. A Rubik’s cube puzzle will keep him entertained during car rides. Closet-door basketball games with foam balls are toys he will enjoy. A dartboard with traditional or magnetic darts will bring him hours of entertainment.

Outdoor Toys

  • Teenage boys enjoy playing with bows and arrows. Include some goals he can aim for in the backyard. A mature child would enjoy playing with an air pistol or BB gun. Basketball goals and trampolines are traditional outdoor toys that will get him outside exercising.

Water Toys

  • If you live close to a lake or beach, give your teenager a water toy for Christmas. Starter surfboards with wax and straps make great presents. Want-to-be water sportsmen like scuba and snorkel gear. Body boards and water skimmers are excellent toys for water play. Small kayaks and paddles will have your teen wishing for summer.
