Purchasing birthday presents, or gifts for another holiday or event, for 14-year-old skater boys can be both daunting and stressful. Young teenagers are typically very into what is trendy at the moment, and if you yourself are not a teenager it is difficult to stay up to date with what is currently "in." However, skater boys do have specific areas of interest, so it is best to choose from within those categories.

Skateboards and Accessories

Skater boys earned this nickname from their penchant for all things skateboard. A birthday gift for a teenage skater boy that is sure to be well-received is a skateboard or skateboard accessory. Ask a friend or family member of the teenager in question to find out what his favourite brand of skateboards is before making your purchase. You can give a fully assembled skateboard or different pieces of a skateboard, such as a deck or a set of trucks and wheels, so that the recipient can assemble the skateboard himself.

Clothing

Companies like Element, Volcom, West 49 and Hurley not only manufacture skateboard-related products but also a wide range of clothing. Depending upon the season, and the personal tastes of the skater boy in question, consider brand-name T-shirts, flannels, hoodies, jackets, jeans and shorts. Clothing that displays their brand-name preference is popular with many teenagers, with these brands being the most sought-after for teenage skater boys. You can also consider brand-name wallets, belts, sunglasses, hats and backpacks.

Shoes

Alongside skateboards and clothing, "skate shoes" are an important part of the skater boy aesthetic. The same companies listed in Section 2 sell footwear intended for the skateboarder that are often brightly coloured, wide shoes with thick shoelaces. If you are purchasing footwear as a gift for a 14-year-old skater boy, it is best to find out his favourite brand names as well as his shoe size and favourite colours from his friends or family prior to choosing the present. This is an easy way to ensure that the footwear will be genuinely appreciated.

Gift Tokens

Young teenagers can be very picky about their appearance, sportswear, gadgets and electronics. If you are unsure of exactly what to get the skater boy in your life, consider a gift token to a store oriented toward skateboard culture, such as "West 49," which sells not only brand-name skateboards but board accessories, clothing and footwear. This is a gift he will appreciate because it takes the stress off of you and allows him to pick and choose exactly what he wants, be it a skateboard or a new outfit, for his birthday.
