Best Christmas Gifts for Teenage Guys

Updated on December 14, 2015

I guess you've got to think about the teenage guy and what he likes, what he's into, when approaching what kinds of gifts you should get him for Christmas, for his birthday or if you just want to let him know you're thinking about him. Whether he is your son, grandson or boyfriend, he's going to appreciate that you're thinking about him and, in fact, put some thought into what he likes.

Teenage guys tend to like physical stuff, cool stuff, technology and gadgets, lots of music. Let's look at some super-cool and useful gifts for the teenage guy in your life, so you can get him a gift that just wows him.

Technology and Gadgets

Here are some good gifts for those guys who like cool tech stuff or they just like playing video games.

Maybe he likes Tony Stark from Iron Man and Stark's awesome gadgets and high-tech tools. Something pretty cool are the innovative new laser projection virtual keyboards they have out now for computers. They look cool and clear up a bit of clutter.

Along these lines, why not go all out and just get him a robot. Sounds crazy, but he'll love it. The MiP Balancing Robot can communicate and is responsive to hand gestures and can navigate surroundings and follow objects. Sounds cool to me.

Maybe he's into video games and even likes those retro 80s arcade games and would like the best simulation of them for that old school feel. Perfect for living out the 80s arcade feel is the ION iCade Arcade Cabinet for iPads. He can hook it up to his iPad and play video games like they used to do at the arcades when video games first came out.

Or he gets tired of playing those games, or just prefers playing at the XBOX or PlayStation console, then you can get him a decent and comfy chair to kick back in to play his video games. The X Rocker 51259 Pro H3 4.1 Audio Gaming Chair that is wireless is perfect for that. He looks cool and feels cool. It's equipped with 4 speakers and a sub-woofer and the technology of the unit allows you to feel the vibration of the sounds coming from it. A truly exhilarating experience! Plus, it's comfortable! It's well-padded and has arm rests. Who could ask for more?!

Music for the Teenage Guy

Most teenagers are into music. Either playing it, listening to it or dancing to it. They want it to be rockin' and want to rock out to it!

Why not get him some decent headphones to listen to his favorite music. The Beats by Dr. Dre Drenched Solo HD On-ear Headphones will have his music sounding like it's live, picking up on all the deeper sound and nuances. He'll love it!

Or maybe he's a musician, an aspiring musician or just likes to play around on the guitar. He can test out his guitar skills with a multitude of different types of guitars with Arobas Music Guitar Pro 6.0 Deluxe Soundbank Edition Software. It's a proven and excellent tool for creating music and learning to play and perfecting your playing on the guitar.

Gifts for the Athletic Teenage Guy

Teenagers like to burn up energy; because they have a lot of it. It's likely the teenage guy in your life is physically active, playing sports or going to the gym.

It's certain he needs to stay hydrated. Why not get him a multifunctional water bottle? You can get one with a compartment for keys, ID or whatever is small that he needs to carry. It's cool, it's convenient. Perfect for the gym.

Let's go back to high-tech. Maybe when he works out he does a little jump rope for working some cardio. But he doesn't like the inconvenience of periodically tripping on the rope. He'll love the Digital Cordless Jump Rope. He can jump rope, get a work out, but never be stopped by getting tangled by the rope. It tracks how many calories you've burned and how many times you've jumped. You can carry it and use it anywhere. Plus, it's just plain cool.

A lot of teenage guys are athletic and physically active and like to stay in shape. Some of them could be world champions one day.
