Gift Guide for Teenage Boys

As the mother of a boy, I have always been disappointed by the lack of gift ideas for them. Unless they’re connected to the computer or video games, there seems to be a black hole of gift guides for the young gentlemen in your life.

So, as a gift to you this Christmas, I offer up a selection of possible gifts for teenage boys.

Gift Giving Guide for Teenage Boys

1) High quality finery such as a set of cuff links, a silk tie, a dress shirt, and dapper dress socks

2) A great set of headphones for their iPod/iPhone

3) A selection of classic rock.

4) Toiletries that will make him feel like the great gentleman he’s developing into being; shaving soap, shaving brush, cologne, nail trimming set

5) A classic book such as Hemingway’s ‘The Old Man & The Sea’

6) The gift of time; take him to a museum, gallery, dinner or concert

7) Sports Equipment

8) Fly fishing lessons

9) Bedroom makeover, including new bedding, new art, and new lighting

10) Again, the gift of time – instead of a gift card, take him for lunch, dinner, brunch, and to his favourite shop where he can choose an item of clothing of his choice.

Wishing everyone a joyful Christmas surrounded by people you love!

  1. I’d never given it much thought (not having boys myself), but you’re right…it’s easy to come up with gifts for little boys and even for the men in your life. For my teenaged nephews, I always ended up getting them iTunes gift cards, scarves and gloves, and possibly restaurant gift cards…not all that exciting when they open them up (although they did always enjoy using the gift cards when they got back home). Being a classic rock lover myself, I love that idea. Now I have some ideas to arm myself with when I finally do make it out to shop (or maybe when I do my shopping on Amazon)…thanks!
