Classic Christmas Gifts for Teenage Boys

Information verified correct on October 22nd, 2016

The “what to buy” guide for him.

Teenagers are well-known for being hard to buy for, and none more so than a teenage boy. When shopping for a teen guy, most of us tend to just opt for the basics out of raw confusion. Who knew there was more than one type of Xbox?! Unfortunately, the basics are… well, basic.

This year, get your teenage boy an exciting Christmas gift! We’ve done the hard work for you and found a stack of gift ideas that guys will love. All you have to do is add to cart.

Gaming accessories

Unless you’re an absolute expert, you’re not going to know exactly which gaming consoles your teen has or which consoles he prefers. Buying an Xbox game is going to be risky if he has a PS4. Instead, try buying a gaming accessory. Something that will work no matter which console he has.


A good leather wallet is one of the suavest and coolest accessories a guy can carry. It’s an item he’ll use everyday and probably keep for a few years. These options are classic, functional and high quality.


You can never go wrong with a classic pair of shades. Buy them in a classic style like a wayfarer or an aviator so they’ll never go out of style.

A cool t-shirt

With Christmas comes party and beach season, so a little wardrobe update is a good idea. A cool, statement tee is perfect for injecting style into an outfit when it’s too hot to add a jacket or accessories.

Music accessories

Music accessories make really great gifts. They’re coveted items that are used everyday, and it’s something that teens probably can’t afford to buy themselves. The gift ideas below will be an absolute hit with all teenage boys.

Experience gifts

Teenage boys love a bit of action and adventure. Why not gift your guy one of these cool experiences? He'll hold on to the memories for a lifetime.

Board shorts

It’s beach season, so it’s time for a swimwear update. A new pair of board shorts is a practical gift that will get loads of use.

Leather accessories

Leather accessories are a simple way to add style to any ensemble. Think watches, phone cases and belts. You don’t have to pay a fortune either. Here are some affordable options.


A signature scent is another great gift idea for your teen. A classic cologne will make him feel just a little bit special.
