Teenagers are less than easy to shop for, to put it lightly, and shopping for a boy adds a whole new difficulty to the task. When birthdays and other special occasions roll around, finding the right present for a young man can feel akin to torture. Never fear, because I’ve taken on the tough task of finding the perfect gifts for young guys. Check out these unique gift ideas and make his birthday the best it can be.
5 Ways to Surprise Your Teenage Son for His Birthday
Some High-Quality Headphones
Teenagers are music obsessed, and if your son has earbuds constantly plugged in to listen to his favorite tunes, give him the gift of awesome audio for his birthday. If you’re looking for a splurge, check out the Beats by Dre headphones. They’ve got awesome sound, look pretty darn cool, and are on pretty much every technology-savvy teenager’s list. This is the type of present that your son will wish he had thought of asking for, and you’ll shock him when you give it to him without prompting. There’s a cool mom award on the horizon for you!
A Fun Adventure
If your son has been a daredevil since the day he was born, check out Excitations.com. You can browse a bunch of adrenaline-pumping activities that he’s sure to love, whether it’s an indoor skydiving session, a day spent in a luxury sports car, or even a kayaking adventure for the whole family. Once you type in your zip code, the site will give you a list of options in your area. If you can’t decide, then you can always sit him down and tell him to choose his favorite; he’ll like that he’s part of the decision process and you’ll be assured he’s getting a present that he absolutely loves.
Tickets to a Big Game
Is your son a sports fan to the extreme? Is tearing him away from the television when the big game is on almost impossible? Then give him a gift you know he’ll appreciate—tickets to an upcoming game. You likely know his favorite team, so check out the listings and see if they have any games close to you in the upcoming months. You don’t need to find tickets for the week of his birthday; grabbing some for a game that’s even three months in the future is A-Okay, as the anticipation will have him even more excited when the day finally comes. Grab a pair of tickets so he can take the guest of his choice.
Tickets to a Concert
Maybe music is more your son’s jam—no pun intended. If he loves live shows and goes to every concert he gets the chance to, you’ll definitely make him grin from ear to ear with tickets to an upcoming show of one of his favorite artists. Check out Stubhub for some resale tickets at cheaper prices for a concert in your area. If you don’t know just who he’d like to see, you can always grab him a Stubhub gift card and ensure he gets to attend the concert of his dreams.
Something Just for Him
The best types of presents are those that are made with the recipient in mind. Check out a website like Gifts.com. They have collections of gifts for guys based on personality and age range, guaranteeing you’ll find the perfect fit for your son, no matter what his passions or interests are. The best thing about using a site like this to find a gift is that you can personalize whatever you choose. If you grab sports apparel, you can get his name threaded onto it; if you choose room décor, you can get a phrase or quote you know he loves inscribed. If your son is something of an outdoors lover, a classic wooden pocketknife engraved with his initials is sure to be a hit; if he’s taken on the role of barbecue master, you can’t go wrong with a personalized barbecue set that he can take with him in his upcoming college years.
If your son is soon celebrating his birthday, make him feel special with the perfect gift for a teenage guy that he’s guaranteed to appreciate.
