Introduction: Looking for Gift Ideas for Teenage Boys?

Looking for gift ideas for 13-year-old boys?

You are in the right place. Not only do I have a 13-year-old son myself, but we also live close to several of my nephews whom are heading into the teenage years (12 and 14 in particular).

If the 13-year-old-boy in your life is anything like my son, you probably won't get a helpful response to questions about what he wants for his birthday or the holidays. A shrug and grunt is all I got, at least. So, I had to do some sleuthing to compile a list of gift ideas for 13-year-old boys.

So, whether you're shopping for a birthday present or for a holiday gift, bookmark this Hub for reference. I've included a range of topics, including:

  • Gaming gift ideas
  • Sports-related gift ideas
  • Tech gift ideas
  • Entertainment gift ideas
  • Traditional gift ideas
  • Gift cards

Before Considering Gift Ideas, What Interests Does the 13-Year Old Boy Have?

Gaming Gift Ideas for 13-Year-Old Boys

My 13-year-old shares an Xbox 360 system with his siblings, and also has a Nintendo DSI. Though, now that he has a cell phone, he seems to be outgrowing the DSI. The Xbox, however, is still fun to play whenever he has friends over.

Each year, the holiday season brings many new games for all gaming systems on the market: Nintendo DS consoles (handheld game system), the Xbox 360, the Nintendo Wii, and the Sony PS3. There are also games to play on the computer and applications that can be downloaded to cell phones.

With a 13-year-old boy, you are now moving into more mature video games. And, the kids themselves want to play "cool" games. A rating system categorizes games as E for everyone, T for teens, and M for mature. Just because you have a teenager doesn't mean that all T rated games are appropriate. Violence, sexual themes, and language may be coarser than that found in E rated games. Think of it as similar to a PG-13 rated movie. If in doubt, you can ask a salesperson or read online reviews.

That said, I can say that one of my 13-year-old son's favorite games is "Halo," which is rated M

Some popular gaming gift ideas for 13-year-old boys include:

  • Current versions of NCAA, NFL, NBA and MLB sports games
  • Movie-themed games (Harry Potter, Batman, etc.)
  • Rock band games
  • Halo
  • Tony Hawk Pro Skater
  • World of Warcraft
  • The Sims
  • Final Fantasy
  • Need for Speed
  • StarCraft Battle Chest

In 2011-2012, the hot games included:

  • Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
  • Batman Arkam City
  • Call of Duty 3: Modern Warfare 3
  • Assassins Creed

Note that many of these games are rated M for mature, due to violence/war.

Sports Gift Ideas for 13-Year-Old Boys

There is a subtle difference between my 10-year-old and my 13-year-old when it comes to sports.

Apparently, once you become a teenager, it's not as cool to wear caps, jerseys, sweatshirts, etc. of your favorite team. And definitely take down the Red Sox drapes and put away the Yankees bedspread.

Sports gift ideas for 13-year-old boys are focused on, you guessed it: your teenager!

Here's a list of items that will probably be appreciated, even if they don't show it:

  • Sports equipment (balls, bats, mitts, helmets, hoops, goals, etc.)
  • Sports memorabilia (trading cards, signed balls and the like)
  • Brand-name T-shirts -- my son likes Nike and Adidas
  • Tickets to a sporting event
  • Tuition for a sports camps or similar programs
  • What is clindamycin hcl 300

Tech Gift Ideas for Teenage Boys

By the teenage years, it's all about tech gifts. I finally got my 13-year-old a cell phone for his birthday this year.

Keep in mind, however, that not all boys will take good care of these items that can easily become lost or broken. Another tip is to consider getting previous models of items (you can usually purchase new versions) and/or those with less memory (8GB instead of 16GB, for example).

Depending on your budget, there are many tech gadgets you could consider when shopping for gifts for 13-year-old boys:

  • iPod Nano
  • iPod Touch
  • Other MP3 players and accessories
  • Laptop computer -- there are many inexpensive notebook versions available
  • Cell phone -- you don't necessarily have to go with the new iPhone! There are basic models that still allow for easy texting available for less than $50 with generous rebates (hint: go for an unlimited texting plan to avoid a shockingly high cell phone bill)

Finding gifts for 13-year-old boys is not always a piece of cake (or pie!)

Entertainment Gift Ideas for 13-Year-Old Boys

Let's say you want to save money on a gift for a 13-year-old boy. How is that even possible?

Believe it or not, but some young teenagers still enjoy reading books and watching movies. There are a number of popular series available, depending on his interests (sorcery, magic, history, fantasy, vampires, etc.) Just think -- you'll save money and probably a few of your 13-year-old's brain cells when you get him a book for a present.

Recommended book series (so they don't stop at just one):

  • Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
  • The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
  • Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colter
  • Stormbreaker series by Anthony Horowitz
  • The Maze Runner series by James Dashner
  • Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flanagan
  • The Vadelah Chronicles series by Julie Rollins
  • The Demon's Lexicon Trilogy by Sarah Rees Brennan
  • The Heir Chronicles by Cinda Williams Chima

Other great books (classics he should enjoy):

  • Watership Down by Richard Adams
  • I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak
  • Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
  • The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
  • The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
  • Lord of the Flies by William Golding

Traditional Gift Ideas for 13-Year Old Boys

When I was growing up, video games were fairly new on the scene and no one had cell phones (at least not the kids). These days, 13-year-old boys' tastes have matured, while the price of gifts has increased. You'll be hard pressed to find a typical teenager who will appreciate a board game for a present.

Traditional gift ideas for 13-year-old boys are often focused on what's "cool." They probably won't admit it if they still like to experiment with Spy Ware or build Legos, so take those off the list.

Instead, consider:

  • Skateboards and accessories
  • Roller blades
  • Bicycles
  • Scooters
  • Other sports equipment -- snowboarding, wake boarding, skiing, sledding, etc.
  • Pool table, balls and cue
  • Table tennis set
  • Foosball table

Don't forget accessories: helmets, gloves, boots, bindings, batteries, and any other item necessary for your 13-year-old boy to enjoy these gifts.

When in Doubt, Go With a Gift Card!

Let's face it: teenagers are difficult to communicate with. Trying to please a13-year-old boy with a gift may be more difficult than getting him to clean his room.

Fortunately, you don't have to worry about a gift card being a cop-out for a present. Teens will appreciate the freedom of shopping for their own gift, on their own (mostly) terms. Even better, after the holidays, most retailers slash prices on their products -- right when your 13-year-old will go shopping.

Gift cards are available in a range of values (usually $25-100) from a number of specific retailers. The boys in my family enjoy getting gift cards from:

  • Target
  • Old Navy
  • Wal-Mart
  • Game Stop
  • REI and other sporting goods stores
  • iTunes

If you want to give your 13-year-old even more flexibility in shopping with a gift card, pick up one of the Visa or MasterCard options. They work just like cash!

Thanks SirDent - yes, we are going to be getting our 13-year old a very nice bat for Christmas this year (they cost several hundred dollars)! He has played on both Little League and traveling baseball teams and will likely do the same this coming spring. Cheers to you, Steph

You are on to a great topic here. The Hub I did on 4 year old girl gifts may be my best producing hub.

When I was 13, I would have loved these, especially the video games, but not the books so much. I was pretty good at using the library by then and loved that I could read the books and then return them and get more.

stephhicks68 profile image

stephhicks68 6 years ago from Bend, Oregon Author

Thanks Paul - I have a birthday party for twins hub that also gets a lot of traffic! :)

I hear you on the books. We have a few sets of popular series, like Harry Potter, but often head to the library to check out popular books.

Trying to find something my grandson will like is always a trying experience. I ordered Halo Reach for him and found out his Mom already gave the same game to him for his birthday. Luckily Walmart on-line items can be returned at any Walmart for a credit or refund. He lives for video games I think. Appreciated all of your ideas. A gift card may have to be the final option. Can't get any ideas from him. ugh!

Great ideas, thanks so much. Yes, I have noticed a subtle difference in what different genders as well as ages wants for gift...if it were generic, it would be so easy to buy a gift but then you would also want something that the recipient will enjoy...not something that will be just put on the side for display, lol. Teens these days are one has to be very updated too.

foulch 6 years ago

I am a Teen Kid and while some of these were the kinds of things I would get not all of them are. I agree with books, I find most guys like me like Sci Fi, some fantasy, and some mystery, also games are good and there are some realy cheap PC games out there. Electronics also a good idea (just letting you know your teen kid probably knows more about them then you do keep this in mind.) I like the idea of that movie pass, I would definetly use that, also Movies on DVD are good too. I personaly am actualy the kind of person who worries a ton about money, I don't know why. It is not the kind of thing kids my age worry about but, I do. My b-day is coming up and I don't know what I want. These were some good suggestion

kathy 6 years ago

when i was little my mom would have us make out lists of

what we wanted for christmas and our birthdays.

I did that with my daughter and now with my 2 grandsons

ages 13 and 15. Then I look everything up online (since

most of it I never heard of before)to find out where to

buy the stuff, descriptions,+ prices. Its so much easier

than trying to guess what they would like + getting a headache from looking in the stores for too long.

Lila 6 years ago

These were great ideas! I'd add two more that are a hit with my 13 year old: netflix subscription (variety of prices based on length of time, etc.), and gift cards for FOOD--mostly anywhere with hamburgers!

Just thought I'd add to your book series list. My son turns 13 today, and has just finished one of Rick Riordan's series of books. He absolutely loved reading each one, and has begun to save $ just to add to his new personal library. Great incentive or reward also when he does something special. Thanks for the ideas!

I tend to buy cloths for my 13 year old stepson, because he is always wearing his cloths home and when he comes back over never brings nothing back. He also out grows a lot (he can currently wear his dad's cloths).I went this past Christmas and got him is own necklace, that was nice. But when buy gifts for a 13 yr old boy you have to think if they will tak care of them or not.

stephhicks68 profile image

stephhicks68 5 years ago from Bend, Oregon Author

Clothes are a great gift idea too, Jessie! My 13-year old wears my husbands clothes sometimes, and even accidentally put on a pair of my jeans the other day (didn't even notice at first! LOL) Thanks for the comment, Steph

Love the Pumpkin Pie Birthday dessert! Pie is superior to cake in every way. Perfect example:

*When you get cake for occasions, someone has to corral everyone and then serve them the cake. When you have pie, you just set it out and everyone gets their own.

With the kids' fresh mind, game gadgets are cool gifts for them. Baseball bat, baseball cap, or a real baseball ball are also some of the best gifts that you can opt to give. Just make sure it has the signature of his favorite team player.

Ethan 5 years ago

Okay so I have to say, I am 13 and only about half of this stuff is something that would appeal to me or people I know. Honestly I know very few people who play World of Warcraft (or at least those that admit to it) also, not very many 13 year olds own razor scooters and the ones that do don't use them as they are from when they were little. I was surprised to see nothing about airsoft on this list because 90% of people in my grade who are boys play it. On type of gift card, that I love to get any ways is amazon because I can use it when I want on what ever I want. Finally I would more recommend the sims for girls, never played it myself but I've read reviews on on it. One last thing Call of Duty is also VERY popular.

MrBlobby123 5 years ago

Boys do NOT just want a gift card in general. I am 13 and if I was given a gift card I would be pissed off!!! Parents need to talk to theeir kids, not just give them money to buy their own stuff!

Look I'm a 12 yr old boy yh and I'm goin in2 my 13th Bday an I hav 2 say the video games on ther are absolutely rubbish boys like me are interested in FIFA and call of duty and grand theft auto the 1s u hav put down are lil girly games and believe me only weird parents would allow age limited games I mean almost every1 in my skool has 18 games and so do I. Trust me paintballing is pretty Sikk so get a good paint ball gun or bb guns ther prety popular 2 so yeah all u parents readin my comment take some advice out of it. By the way Sikk means awesome if you parents dunno

I'm 11 and I have 2 say u need to put in some wii games not just ps1,2,3 and xbox e.g. Zelda, fifa 11. Also add some

stuff like a music section Ok? e.g. Drums, Electric guitars, Dj tables. bie da wai maybe do stuff like a set of cards that let them of like get out of tiding his room for a week or somefink like dat. Nice Ideas for da xbox games, Gift cards just let us guys down because we have to spend our own time to get dem prezys wich is borin. Xmas soon everytink cheap afta at boxin dey. Bie

matt 5 years ago

alright look.... I'm 13, almost 14, and honestly, xbox is the way to go. I got the xbox360 slim for christmas last year, and i will never look back. Givin your 13 yea old boy a wii game, honestly, is social murder. Most kids nowadays use that "*new-fangled*" system called xbox360. Giving a kid a gift card is ok, but as long as it's to somewhere they like. Don't give a 13 year old a gift card to build a bear, because then you're treating them like they're 4, and they'll look sort of, why don't i say, girly. Get 'em something like an airsoft or paintball gun. just, something to make them look STRAIGHT, which should be a top priority for your 13 year old son. Just, keep in mind that you just got this information from a smart, well-spoken, 13 year old boy.

nate 5 years ago

i am 13 and was looking for things to add to my list this doesn't help much but i think some things you should add are airsoft guns and call of duty games me and my friends always play with our airsoft guns and everyone at my school plays call of duty black ops and modern warfare 2

Mum from Oz 5 years ago

Some great ideas!! well done. I have three kids, two boys aged 13 and 9 and one girl aged 11. All my kids like to read but I would have to say that the boys have always enjoyed 'information books' things about oceans, animals, human body etc, whether they like to admit it or not children of all ages like to learn new things. Another great gift is experience gift certificates. Cheaper ones include movie tickets, bowling and surf lessons or if you want to spend a little more you could get a ride in a race car, white water rafting, theme park tickets etc. There are big budget tickets like hot air balloon rides, tiger moth or helicopter rides, stretch hummer rides etc but I would save these for special occasions like 18th or 21st gifts. Hope these are helpful.

James Hall 5 years ago

Well, I'm 14 and if he like video games, that might be the way to go. But if he into sports or activities like running then get him a new leather football. If that don't work, then get him some new shoes, because I love running and I love name brand shoes!

butter-my-bicuit 5 years ago

i am 11 and i would honestly say that you should get ur child a ps3 or an xbox for christmas. an ipod touch is also a good choice. if you get a ps3 you need to buy call of duty black ops or modern warfare 3. and/or maybe a laptop of some choice would be good. shoes are a good choice too but they need to be able to pick them out or you need to have past knowlegde on what type of shoe they like.

Modern Warfare 3

I'm 14 these gifts are good ideas, but if you do not have Internet for a gaming device make sure the game isn't just known for it's online multiplayer.... That happened to me last year, with Call of Duty: Black Ops

Bobster 5 years ago

I'm 13 and I think that ann Xbox or PS3 is a good idea. I already had an Xbox, so for durin the holidays I got a Kinect instead. A Kinect is a good idea and doesn't require a separate game to be bought-it comes with Kinect Adventures.

I am thirteen and i would prefer Call of duty Modern warfare 3 it just game out a couple of days ago and can be found at places like target for 60 dollars. I also like things like air soft guns. They are basically like Nerf guns but for older kids. The best place to find them are at but you can also find them at sporting goods stores.

Ok - so the greatest gift for teenage boys and girls and everyone...a Bongo Board (balance board). Put this thing in the middle of your livingroom and your kid will be standing on it (balancing on it) all the time. Challenge your kid to get so good at it that he/she can stand perfectly still while playing a handheld game at the same time! It's great exercise, stress relief and something to keep kids on their feet and focused, which you must agree, is not easy at this age! Another great gift is a ping pong table. Kinda takes up a lot of space, but I prefer a ping pong table over a formal dining table anytime. Guess which one gets used more? Have fun! Unplug!

Airsoft gun.....i am 13 and i love airsoft guns!! 3/4 of my friends have airsoft guns....they're soo fun and trust me....they arn't dangerous...moms: they are a fun activity to get your sons off of the xbox or ps3 or whatever. It will get them outside being active!

Experiencea 5 years ago

I'm 13 and tech is my way to go. I love being able to have an iPod touch in my hands, because it's like having a whole new computer, but with a lot more potential apps. Btw, if your child has an iPod touch, or other kind of iTunes applicable device, you should get an itunes card. That is always a safe way to go because it has a certain budget, to keep from accidentally charging your credit card too much, because you can't see how much you spent. However, I do like the ideas on this page. A great guide.

Parker 5 years ago

SAT prep books for my son. He also enjoys playing the Nintendo We (spelling?) at his friends house but I think computer games are a waste of time.

I think that E games and a select few T games for ps3 or Xbox is great for 12 or 13 year olds. As they grow older and more mature like 14 and 15 is when they should start playing the T or even the M rated games.

good ideals sadly my 13 year old has all the games listed then some, he is not into sports, has his own cell phone and hoards money like no other. He also has his own computer so I am thinking a wireless keyboard and I know he has always wanted his own kitten so guess that is what I will go for. But, thank you making this site it is very helpful.

Kris - good luck! My almost 12-year old hoards money and never cashes in gift cards either. The wireless keyboard sounds like a good idea - or the kitten! We got my now 14-year old an iPad tablet computer for his birthday, but that was a BIG gift. Both sets of grandparents went in on the gift together with us and my son was OK with no birthday party either. Best, Steph

12 year old 5 years ago

Just saying, no kid wants an Old Navy gift card, or books. And Halo stinks! If you want to buy a good gift get Call of Dudy: Black Ops or Modern Warfare 3 for xbox. Also most kids want some cool basketball shoes like LeBrons.

Hello in Bend OR! I live in Ky but the rest of my family lives in Bend and Remond! My son will be 13 this weekend. I wantto buy him a phone but not sure if I should add him to my plan with T-Mobile for an outrageous amount or buy him a non-contacted, individual monthly plan...either way Im nervous he will lose it like the last one before I have even had a chance to weigh the final costs. I really need him and I to be in better contact so its important but Im also a tightly budgeted single mom! Any ideas from anyone??/

stephhicks68 5 years ago from Bend, Oregon Author

Hi Clara! Great to hear from someone with local connections!! So, my 14-year old is on my Verizon plan and I am getting my 12-year old a phone for Christmas (shhhh!) too. The phone itself was only 1 cent (awesome for a gift) and adding him to the plan is only $10 per month (both boys are a total of $20 per month with unlimited texting). Curious as to why T-Mobile is charging so much to add him to your plan?? We paid a $25 connection fee and that is it, beyond the $10 each extra per month.

I hear you on the issue with losing the phone. Go with a basic model and have him earn a "better phone" in 2 years with chores and responsibility. My biggest tip, he must leave the ringer on so you can find the phone when its lost. My older son always has the ringer off and then its impossible to find later!!!

I'd love to hear what others say regarding the plan issue. Good luck and Happy Birthday to your 13-year old boy! :-)

stephhicks68 5 years ago from Bend, Oregon Author

Hi Michele - gosh, that sounds tough! New shoes, perhaps? He's probably outgrowing those that he owns and if he is really picky, you could go shopping together and he can show you what he likes! Or, you could get him a gift of an event or experience to enjoy together. A pro sports game? A music concert? Good luck and happy early birthday to your son!

I was hoping for some fresh ideas. If I bought my son what he wanted he would have an xbox. That's easy. I don't want him to have games so it was disappointing that was the first thing I saw. Sports are also easy, at this age they play everything so we already have everything. I'm leaving this site without any new ideas. Disappointed.

Werewolf 3 years ago

Hey, I'm 13 and I came on to see what other boys my age do.

My friends and I are ALWAYS on xbox/computer.

A game that is becoming really popular lately is Minecraft. (Many adults play this, just look it up on Youtube. Every song has a Minecraft parody)

It came out on disc about 2 or 3 months ago but I downloaded it through xbox live.

It is on computer and can be downloaded to phones and ipads.

It is very good but many people (myself included) say do NOT get it on phone or ipad!

Computer is best, though it is easier to get it on xbox.

Hope this helped!

P.S. Usually, the more violent the better.:)

Some kids love nerf guns i do but not as much as airsoft and paintball. Also don't forget bb guns ( don't shoot at people in face or shin). One time i shot my friend in the shin with his bb gun and he was in pain but he shot me in the shin also. Don't be stupid like my friend and i!

Hope this Helped!

It depends on your child - Does he like sports related things or techy things? If sports related, buy him an airsoft gun or whatnot. If he like having new things buy him a product made by apple. If he has a 'Gaming' computer (One that can run games well) Ask him what game HE wants. You need to understand that a teenager likes blood, guts, gore, guns. So buy him games with those things! And don't buy him a Wii.. People just don't like them.

Hi I commented several months ago giving cool teen boy gift ideas.I'm a 13 year old girl so I know what teen boys are into.In my earlier comment,I suggested an iTunes gift card,something bike surf or skate related,or a slingshot.You will notice I didn't write anything about video games.This is because I know boys revieve A lot of gaming gifts already.Also,giving them a gaming gift will encourage them to stare at a screen and 90% of teenage boys are already obsessed with video games. You may think that electronic gifts will be a bigger hit at the party but trust me. The teens will love my ideas!!!Here's an entirely new list of of 13 year old boy gift ideas:

Our son and his friends (All 13, 7th grade) love playing the Xbox version of MineCraft. There is a youtube person (Stampy Longnose) who posts his in game play on youtube for tutorials or story telling and is quite hilarious. The boys love watching him and his site is pretty popular among the teens. So we got him an El Gato game recorder so that he can record his game play and upload it to youtube or other gamer sites. He can also do that for COD and other shooter games.

Ok Im a 13 year old boy and some of these are good and some are not. Most kids do not want a flip phone they want an iPhone (tip: go with a 4 or 4s if on a budget very cheap at verizon or at&t) also Beats are a good idea they are a little more expensive but they are what kids want now a days. (solos are about 150-200$) A long board would also be a good idea,I know that I love mine. Most kids love $$$$ so they can buy what ever they want!! Most kids also like video games (if you do not have a console think of that idea most new ones are 350$) Some games we like are call of duty,halo,assassins creed, Gta 5 (depending on what you let your kid play) Another great idea if you have a higher budget would be an A.R drone it is kinda pricey going for about 300$ if your kid has an iPad/Iphone (there is also a mini A.R drone for about 100$) thanks hope this helped

He has an xbox 360 with lots of games, a new bike, a scooter, his room decorated, and many other things. I will have to think outside the box and also inexpensive. Any ideas?He likes football all of a sudden but I think that is due to a girl he likes, there is already a basketball thing and he has a ball, I have an extra computer but he cannot use that because it drains my computer. Cannot get cable in his room. He has a watch. He wanted one so bad but never wears it and it beeps all the time and he has no idea how to fix it. I can't see well enough to do it. He could use a coat, he has one and he never wears them. He burns up all the time. Spring will be here next month and he has lots of hoodies he wears. He just got new shoes and a haircut. I will just have to think about it.
