When purchasing a birthday gift for a 13-year-old boy keep his interests and style in mind. From a music player to a skateboard to digital camera, with little research you can get a few gift items most teen boys will enjoy. There are gift options available for all budgets.
Most teenage boys enjoy music so you cannot go wrong with an MP3 player, iTunes gift card, CD player or a gift card to a local music store. If budget allows and the 13-year-old is into music instruments, purchase him a set of drums, keyboard or guitar for his birthday.
Video games are a big hit with teenage boys and are great as a birthday gift. If you know what the teen likes in video games, purchase him a couple for his birthday. If you do not know what his interests are when it comes to these games, simply get him a gift card to a local video game or retail store. If you are looking for something more than just games, purchase him a new game console. Find out what he has and what he does not have, so you can get him the newest game console available. If budget does not allow for a new console, check with local game stores for used game consoles that are less expensive than brand new ones.
If the teen is into photography, get him several items he can use for his hobby. Give the teen a digital camera, photo paper, memory card, photo albums and photo editing software. If you purchase photo paper and photo editing software, make sure the teen has access to computer where he can benefit from these gifts.
Depending on the type of sport the teen is into, purchase sporting goods to his interest. Some ideas include a skateboard, snowboard, football gear, fishing equipment and baseball gear. If you purchase a skateboard, you could include a gift basket of accessories, such as elbow and knees pad, extra wheels and a skateboarding T-shirt. For indoor sports, purchase an electronic dartboard, Foosball table or ping-pong table.
Some teenage boys enjoy going to the movies with a group of friends. Purchase a couple of movie tickets or vouchers and a gift card for him to purchase a few snacks for the movie. Some theatre chains offer packages that include tickets along with popcorn and soda. The teen can bring along some friends to enjoy the movie.
