Christmas Gifts to Buy for High School Boys

Save

There may be one task more difficult that searching for the perfect Christmas gift for a teenage girl: searching for the perfect Christmas gift for a teenage boy. By high school, your young man has probably outgrown baseball cards and bubble gum. He will want a gift that is more suited for his new mature outlook on life, and that can be a challenge for a parent. There are several gifts that will make your high schooler smile this Christmas.

Car and Truck Accessories

  • This idea works well whether or not your teenage boy is 16 years of age or owns his own car or not. Many times giving a boy younger than the legal driving age a car inspired gift will give him hope that someday he will have his own set of wheels. You may want to purchase new rims and tires for a car or truck or give him a new CD or MP3 player to listen to his favorite music. Gift certificate for car washes and gas is also a great way to give him money for his vehicle, without having to give him cold, impersonal cash.

Electronics and Video Games

  • Most teenage boys are technology buffs and would enjoy nothing more than the gift of electronics. A new computer, MP3 player or video game system would not only be a great gift, these items will keep him occupied for several hours. The hottest video game will also make a wonderful stocking stuffer. If you are not sure what game or gadget your teenager would enjoy, give him a gift card to a chain electronic store or any other major retail outlet that sells electronics.

Clothing

  • Clothing for Christmas does not have to be socks and underwear. A high school age boy might enjoy a t-shirt or sweatshirt bearing his high school colors or his favorite sports team. A professional football team’s jersey is also another great choice. Many young men are into fashion, so a pair of designer jeans or the hot pair of sneakers will also appeal to his sense of style.

Experience

  • Give your teenage boy the gift of an experience this Christmas. One idea might be snowboarding lessons along with a brand new snowboard. You may also want to consider sky diving lessons or a day behind the wheel of a professional race car. A more expensive gift choice might be a weekend away hiking or at a video game convention with a couple of his friends, and a parent for a chaperone.
