Gift Categories for 13 and 14 year old boys

Giving the Gift of Money

A lot of boys will be happy with a gift of money. In fact they may prefer cash so that they can choose exactly what they want. To make a gift of cash more interesting and personal, you could put it in a special envelope you have made yourself. Don't worry – it's not difficult at all. With the kits shown on the right, all that is involved is to print out the page on your printer (either on cardstock or paper), cut around the outline, fold on the dotted lines then stick together with glue or tape. Easy!

Here are the links for the money wallet kits shown on the right:

Codigo Cube

Your boy will amaze his friends with this cool game. The codigo cube is a novel trivia game you can carry around in your pocket. Play by yourself or in a group. The trivia questions are regularly updated and are a mix of easy, medium, and difficult. It is used with any WiFi or 3G enabled smartphone.

Buy from Amazon

Syma S107/S107G R/C Helicopter
Syma S107/S107G R/C Helicopter

Syma Remote Controlled Helicopter

Here's a great way to get that boy out of his seat. This remote controlled helicopter comes ready assembled and can fly up, down, right, left, forwards, and backwards. It is approximately 7½ inches long - small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. The gyroscope technology will help the helicopter keep a steady direction and altitude.

Also available in blue and yellow.

Manufacturer recommends for 14 year olds and up.

Buy from Amazon

Over Ear Headphones

My son received the Logitech headset from the selection below and it is one of his favorite gifts. The sound is such excellent quality and because his are cordless, he can listen to game reviews (board games and computer games - yes he's a bit of a geek) while he unloads the dishwasher and does other chores. A word of caution - he does not seem to hear me when I ask him to empty the trash - or maybe that's just selective hearing!

Turn his tablet or smartphone into a mobile gaming system

POWER A MOGA Pro Power - Electronic Games
POWER A MOGA Pro Power - Electronic Games

If your 13 or 14 year old boy has any games on his android device (phone or tablet), MOGA Pro Power will make those games so much more fun and comfortable to play because it is really similar to other full-sized game controllers, giving him much more precision.

See the video below.

 

His Own UFO

UDI U808 Infrared R/C Flying Saucer UFO Hand Induced Flight w/ LED Lights
UDI U808 Infrared R/C Flying Saucer UFO Hand Induced Flight w/ LED Lights

This little UFO can be controlled in two ways:

1. use the palm of your hands - the UFO has a proximity detector which allows it to hover over your hand or any other object

2. use the remote control

Manufacturer recommends for 14 year old and up.

 

IPad

Apple iPad Mini MF432LL/A (16GB, Wi-Fi, Space Gray )
Apple iPad Mini MF432LL/A (16GB, Wi-Fi, Space Gray )

What can I say? The ipad or ipad mini is still a very popular item for 13 and 14 year old boys! My son loves his Ipad. He uses it mostly for playing games but he has also taken the odd photo. It's great that it is so portable and has a long battery life. So he will often take it on long car trips to keep himself occupied.

Play games, watch movies, take photos, browse the web, and so much more....

Also available in white

Suitable for both 13 and 14 year old boys

 

Kindle Ebook Reader

Kindle, 6" E Ink Display, Wi-Fi - Includes Special Offers (Previous Generation - 5th)

A Great Digital Camera

Canon PowerShot A2300 IS 16.0 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom (Black)
Canon PowerShot A2300 IS 16.0 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom (Black)

This inexpensive, compact, point and shoot camera takes great photos and HD videos. This camera includes some really fun effects such as fisheye, miniature, and toy camera. There is also a face self-timer feature where the camera waits for a face to enter the frame before taking the photo - great for photos of you with your friends.

      No, no, no I don't know a kid my age that would enjoy any of this stuff, kids my age want iPhones and shoes not Legos and puzzles.

      I think that an iPod touch would suit many except that some parents may not allow their kids to have one and that's ok!

      Abhirav 2 years ago

      I think even an iPod Touch or hobby grade radio control cars os helis or planes will be good as it will help to cultivate the child's hobby.The radio control things start from about $200 and I would recommend you to buy a Traxxas product.

      some of these gift ideas aren't things guys my age (14) actually want. like the cds (don't know most of the artists and i don't like kids bop), the Princess Bride? (was a really long book and movie is ok) legos? screwdriver set? this list ranges from 8 year old to 23 year old. it's somewhat off but most of it is right like the minecraft and guild wars part. but hey, this is only my opinion

      Honestly I think parents are too uptight about video games. As long as they aren't obsessive video games can genuinely be helpful. For example, stress relief, reflexes, problem solving, etc.

    • profile image

      anonymous 4 years ago

      I'm 14, and I've gotta say, this list isn't the best. Sure, some of the ideas might appeal to certain families, but what about a family where games like Arkham Asylum and other of the more violent, at least according to the parent(s), games aren't allowed? What then?

      The gift ideas are really good. The thing that made me like this lens the most is your layout and writing style. Your lens looks beautiful owing to the use of different colors and somewhat advanced html codes. Keep doing the nice work. Take care. :)

      A great gift for this age group is one that allows them to be creative. If they have a computer, you can get them video editing software, a camera, a microphone, sports equipment, sports memorabilia, sports tickets, and more. These are gifts I would of loved! Nothing beats a good gift card either.

      There's a miniature set of drums called finger drums. They are a tabletop mini drum set for the fingers. I think boys of that age would love these, not so sure about the parents though. Mind you, it might help get them to the dinner table on time!
