Teen boys may not be the easiest people in the world to choose presents for, since their tastes and interests are growing and developing just as quickly as they are. However, there are a few tried-and-true gifts that are popular with teenage boys. From the sports lover to the boy who never leaves the house, there is a popular teen gift for him.
iPod/MP3 Player Speakers
Many teenage boys have an iPod or an MP3 player today. While the ear buds may seem to be an ever-present part of a teen's "uniform," a lot of young people will welcome the chance to listen to their music through speakers, especially for the times they're hanging out at home. Just make sure to check with the teen or his parents about which model of music player he owns, so you can obtain compatible speakers.
For teen boys who are sports lovers, a piece of sports equipment that they can really use will always be a welcome gift. For teens who are interested in extreme sports, a skateboard or a snowboard can be a good choice, while boys who are interested in soccer, football, or other sports might like new equipment for their sport, or even a jersey with their sports hero's name and team emblazoned on the back.
Video games are a hobby of many teenage boys, whether it is an all-consuming role-playing game online or a once-weekly video football game with their buddies. If your gift recipient is a computer gamer, ask what type of games he enjoys and what computer system he is using. If he prefers console gaming, be sure that you know the console he uses (Xbox, PlayStation® or Nintendo, for example) prior to choosing a game.
Movie or TV Show DVDs or Blu-ray Discs
You may be hard-pressed to find any teenage boy who doesn't love some type of movie or television show. From comedy to fantasy to sci-fi, there is a movie genre or TV show for every guy, and it is probably available on DVD or Blu-ray disc. Find out if your lucky gift recipient has a device that plays DVDs or Blu-rays before you buy.
