Picking out fun birthday gifts for a boy's 15th birthday is as challenging as it might seem. Though their tastes and preferences might vary, most teenage boys will appreciate general gifts that don't require a lot of thought on your part. Since boys this age tend to value their freedom and their hobbies above most other things, find out what he likes and narrow your gift-giving ideas down from there.

If the teen in your life is interested in sports, get him a jersey with his favourite player's name or number. Or, get him a hat, T-shirt, sweatshirt or other paraphernalia with his favourite team's logo. For a birthday to remember, get tickets to a local game for his birthday. You even could arrange to have all of his friends meet you at the game and host a party after it ends.

Music or Video Games

Another much-requested gift for a boy's 15th birthday is the gift of music. An ideal gift is a gift card to download online music or an MP3 player. If you don't know his favourite group, a gift card to an electronics store could solve that problem. Boys this age like picking out new music, video games or equipment such as headphones or speakers. Some music or electronics stores also carry movies and television shows on DVD. If there's a nearby venue, consider tickets to a concert.

A Trip

Since a 15-year-old boy doesn't have his driver's license yet, you could offer to take him and a couple of friends on a road trip or a day trip. Maybe you could drive to a theme park, a national park or go on a ski trip. Arrange it so that he has a lot of freedom to spend time with his friends; know going into it that you are there to serve as the chauffeur more than to participate in the activities.


Many teenage boys care a lot about their appearance and what they wear. Take him on a shopping spree and pick out some new outfits and accessories to spruce up his wardrobe. Get him a stylish pair of sunglasses, new shoes or other fun things that he might not buy for himself. For a fun twist, buy him a new suit and then take him out to dinner somewhere fancy that he can wear it.

The Group Gift

Boys at this age often have a big-ticket item in mind, such as a laptop computer or a snowboard. Join with other friends or relatives to buy that gift of his dreams, either by chipping in cash for the gift or by choosing one store where everyone will buy a gift card so the boy can select the model that's right for him.
