Christmas Gifts For Teen Boy | Top Picks
1. Air Jordan 1
If your teen is into shoes this year then you probably already know that Air Jordan 1’s are a teen boy’s fave this year. So it is no surprise these made it to the top of the list of this teen boy gifts list.
My teen has these specific colors, and they look really nice in person. But there are so many colors to pick from. However, certain colors are a little harder to find, so you’ll probably have to shop around different stores depending on what you are looking for.
2. White Nike Air Force 1
These are still popular with teens this year, so if the teen boy in your life doesn’t already own a pair, these would definitely be a win! And honestly, even if they already have a pair, I doubt they’ll mind another pair. So definitely add these to your list! The red Nike Air Force 1 is also really popular this year. My son got them for back to school and I was hesitant because it so much red, but they actually look really nice.
3. PlayStation 5
Another item probably at the top of many teens’ Christmas lists is a PlayStation 5. If your teen has been asking for a PlayStation and you have been looking into getting one, Christmas is the time to get one. Especially with black Friday sales and Cyber Monday.
Teen boys are at an age where they want to make sure they smell good. So a good cologne is a must-have. Figure out what cologne is their favorite and grab it for them. Any teen boy would definitely be excited about receiving their favorite cologne as a gift!
If you have no clue which cologne to get him or they don’t have a favorite brand, then gift them this 11 designer cologne samples set so they can try them all and find their favorite.
5. Nike Sportswear Club Fleece
You can’t ever go wrong with a good pair of sweats. My son asked for these for back to school and now added different colors to his Christmas list. They feel like really good quality and fit really nicely.
6. LED Strip Lights
A great Christmas gift for teens that has been popular for a couple of years now is LED lights. If your teen doesn’t have them yet, I highly recommend them. My son got some for Christmas last year and it was one of his favorite gifts. He literally uses them daily! And when I asked him for help with this list, he said to add them to the top picks because he liked them that much! They are actually really cool and you can switch to several colors and they are super easy to install too.
7. Charging Station
You cannot go wrong with gifting a teen a charging station. Because it’s a win-win! It’s a win for the teen and a win for parents too, haha! Seriously though, it is so frustrating dealing with all the different charges, cords, etc from all the devices. Especially when they are left out and they all end up tangled up, being fought over, getting misplaced, etc. If that’s your teen, he will be ecstatic to receive one of these. They can charge all their devices in one spot and have no tangled cords to deal with!
These days you can’t catch a teen not wearing a chain haha! At least where I live, almost every teen boy I see has one. And my son was recently gifted one for his birthday by my sister and he wears it every single day. So if your teen boy has been asking for one, definitely add this to your list! Just beware because now my son is asking for more haha!
Christmas Gifts For Teen Boy | Under $20
9. 10ft Long iPhone Charger
A 10ft Long iPhone charger is another great Christmas gift for teens. And much as I dislike my kids attached to their phone while it is charging, I have to admit a 10ft charger really comes in handy sometimes.
10. Adjustable Cell Phone Stand
Have you seen these? This adjustable cell phone stand is to hold your phone while you’re watching something, charging your phone, face timing, etc. You can also use it for tablets, not just phones. My husband got one last year and we all fight over it. I think it’s time to get everyone their own haha! Any teen boy would appreciate this and use it daily.
11. DUDE Face & Body Wipes
These Dude Face and Body Wipes are great for teen boys. Perfect to throw in their gym bag, or school locker. They come in super handy to freshen up after a game or P.E class. Any teen boy would be super happy to get these. And these are also great stocking stuffers!
12. Shoe Crease Protectors
What is the best thing to gift a boy these days? Probably shoe crease protector haha! I’m kidding, but not really. I really think any teen that is into shoes would absolutely love to receive shoe crease protectors. I got these for my kids for back to school because I was tired of them walking funny just to avoid creasing their shoes haha! And if you have teens, you know that it’s actually comical how much they care about their shoes getting creased! Highly recommend these!
13. Bed Side Organizer
This one is probably more of a gift for moms, haha! But I think a teen boy can appreciate it too. This bedside storage organizer is perfect for storing all their bedside items off their bed and will help them keep their bedroom tidy.
14. Shoe Cleaning Kit
I got this shoe cleaning kit for my son this year for this birthday because my little brother recommended it (and I highly trust his opinion on all things shoes) and it’s actually amazing! It makes cleaning shoes super easy and cleans them very well without much effort. So if your teen boy obsesses over clean shoes like mine, I highly recommend a shoe cleaning kit. It would make a great gift on its own or if you’re getting him a new pair of shoes, this would be perfect to gift along with the shoes.
15. Water Resistant Bluetooth Shower Speaker
If the teen boy likes listening to music in the shower, he will definitely appreciate a gift like this one. This water-resistant Bluetooth shower speaker is a must-have for the shower. They will definitely use this gift daily!
Christmas Gifts For Teen Boy | Tech
16. Nintendo Switch
If your teen doesn’t have a Nintendo Switch yet, and you’re in the market for one, you’ll definitely hit a home run with this one. With this, they can play on the go, which makes them perfect for traveling or easily move it from room to room.
17. Xbox Series X
If your teen has been asking for an Xbox, Christmas time is probably the best time to grab one, especially with all the sales going on. This is one of those gifts that is more on the expensive side, but if you have been considering getting one, definitely don’t miss the Holiday sales.
18. Gaming Headset
These gaming headsets are super cheap compared to others that do the exact same thing. They feel of good quality and even have lights on them and they look great! If you have a gamer in your life, these are definitely a must-have. My son recently got these for his birthday and he loves and used them every day.
19. Apple AirPods with Charging Case
AirPods are on every teen’s wish list if they don’t already own them. However, they are kinda pricey. But if your teen takes care of his stuff, then AirPods would be a great gift to get him. There are several versions to pick from. These are just the ones we have and love!
The other versions:
Amazon has a ton of unique covers to pick from in case you also want to grab them a cover too.
20. Google Nest Mini (2nd Generation)
The Google Nest Minis is super cool. Both my teens have one in their bedrooms and use them daily. They are great for setting up alarms and listening to music, and they are low profile, so you can set them up anywhere in their bedroom. We also have the Echo Dot in the living room and those are also great but a little more pricey.
21. Amazon Fire stick
22. Portable Charger
A portable charger is not only a great Christmas gift for teens but it’s definitely a must-have in my opinion. Because as teens start getting older and they go out more and more with friends you want to be able to reach them at all times. So a portable charger is a definite must-have to make sure they don’t end up stranded somewhere without a charged phone.
Christmas Gifts For Teen Boy | Sports + Fitness
23. WILSON NFL Super Grip Football
These footballs are of great quality! If you are in the market for a good football, definitely give this one a try. The sports fanatic teen boy in your life will definitely thank you for it!
24. Spalding Street Outdoor Basketball
You can’t for wrong with a brand new fresh basketball. Even if your teen already has one, there is no such thing as having too many basketballs.
25. Portable Soccer Goal and Net
Figuring out what are the best gift ideas for teen boys can be a pain! Especially if the teen boy has it all! But don’t worry, I got you! If your teen boy is into soccer, this portable soccer goal and the net set will definitely make for the best Christmas gift. Trust me! My son has a set and uses them a lot. Perfect to take to the park to play with friends or family, but also a great size to use in the yard.
26. Sports Apparel
27. Mini Over-the-Door Basketball Hoop
If your teen doesn’t have one of these or a version of it, then you are lucky! Jk! While these drive me a little crazy, my teen actually enjoys it very much. Seems that just about every teen boy has or has had one of these in their bedroom at some point. But if your teen boy doesn’t yet have one, definitely add this to your list. These make for great presents for teenage boys.
Update: we recently updated his basketball hoop for his room and here is how I DIY’ed it in case you’re up for a DIY basketball hoop.
28. Pull-Up Bar
I feel like everyone has owned one of these at some point in their lives haha! But they are seriously great. We have had one for years and both my son and daughter are always using it. Often they compete with each other to see who can do the most pull-ups. So it is definitely a great way to sneak in some activity and make it fun. Especially with all the gaming going on, it’s a way to get them moving their bodies more.
29. Spikeball Game Set
If you have a teen that is into gaming, you know how hard it is to get them off the couch or chair and move their bodies more. This is a great game to get them out in the yard with friends. It’s a super fun game that can be used for many years to come.
These are both great water bottle gift ideas for teen boys. Specifically, teen boys who play sports. The reason these types of bottles are perfect for teens in sports is that they are durable and also very inexpensive. If you’ve been around teens that play sports, you know they do not take care of their bottles.
And during the 8+ years, my son has been playing sports, I have watched all the boys just toss their water bottles around, lose them, break them, etc. So water bottles like the Hydroflask and other similar styles are just not worth it. So, if you want to get the teen in your life something that he needs, wants, and will actually use, this is a great option.
Christmas Gifts For Teen Boy | Shoes + Clothes
31. Nike Sportswear Club Fleece
These hoodies are timeless. They have a simple, sleek look and last forever! If you had these in the past or have one now, you know what I am talking about. If your teen doesn’t have one or can use a new one, definitely grab them one of these. They will wear the heck out of it and get a ton of use from it.
32. Nike Slides
If your teen boy is an athlete and plays sports, slides always come in handy to switch shoes before and after games. So if your teen doesn’t have any or is due for a new pair, Nike slides are the way to go! Not only are they really great quality, but you can also always find them on sale and even without the sale they are budget friendly without sacrificing the quality.
33. Graphic Tee
Definitely add graphic tees to your gift ideas for teen boys list! You can’t go wrong with graphic tees. There are so many places you can shop for graphic tees, you could even find a ton of cool ones at thrift stores. So if you have one around, definitely start there.
Last Minute Christmas Gifts For Teen Boys
34. Nike Socks
Most teens would absolutely love to receive Nike socks! So if you are running out of time and need some last-minute gifts, Nike socks are a foolproof last-minute Christmas gift for teen boys. And this is one of those items that you’ll likely find in stock even up until the last minute before Christmas.
A wallet is another great option for last-minute Christmas gifts for teen boys. Even if you procrastinated till the last day, you’ll likely still find some really nice wallets in stock in the stores.
36. Gift Cards Or Cash
If you have absolutely no clue what is the best gift for teenage boy, cash or gift cards are going to be your best friend! You can’t ever go wrong with either one. Sometimes it’s better to just let them pick their own gifts. You can grab them a gift card from their favorite spots or just get them a visa card that they can use anywhere.
