Teenage boys can be difficult to shop for. No matter what type of event you are purchasing a gift for, you can be sure to have your work cut out for you. So here is a list of five gifts that will make your son or friend happy.
Video Games– Above all there is nothing teen guys enjoy more then video games. Video games are getting more and more flashy, and seem to satisfy the fast pace loving generation that teens today are a part of. For short attention spans and taking out frustration video games will impress. Now just what video games should you purchase? Your best bet in this situation is to ask the boy whom you are buying the gift for directly. Video games come in all shapes and sizes so to speak and you don’t want to come home with a Wii when your boy wanted his Xbox 360 and Halo. An Xbox 360 and Halo Reach will impress. Halo Reach is the latest game in the series but make sure you consider the fact that many teens like to play Halo on line, this will require a bit more money to sign up for Xbox’s on line gaming service called Xbox live. You could alternatively get a PS3 or Wii depending on the teens preference.
Cologne– We all know teen boys are not the cleanest people around. Sometimes a daily shower isn’t quite enough when you consider all the sports they play and physical activities as well. Getting a nice brand of cologne such as Adidas or Roca Wear for example can keep your teen smelling fresh and impress the opposite sex. Which is what a lot of teen boys attempt to do but with good hygiene their chances to impress are much better. When looking for colognes expect to pay between ten and thirty for a good brand.
Smart Phone– Get your teen a Droid, Iphone, or Blackberry. Texting is sweeping the nation as almost a method of completely eliminating the need to have phone conversations. Equipping your teen with a slide out keyboard, oodles of storage for music and games, and a pretty decent camera will definitely make their day. Just make sure you pick a good service plan so they can fulfill all the texting ‘needs’ and also make sure you set up a family plan if you are buying this for your teen child.
Exercise Equipment– With all the aforementioned technology it is important that you purchase something to keep your teen boys active. Teen boys have a lot of energy and hormones to burn off throughout the day and some exercise equipment can do the trick. Look for weights or maybe a treadmill or stationary bike depending on your teens preference. Some will be more inclined to try and bulk up but remind them they are still growing and aerobic exercise is great for a generation of boys who to often sit glued to the couch.
Electric Grill– Its a known fact that teenage boys are not exactly the best chefs. Get him a foreman grill or something similar for twenty to thirty bucks and they can grill chicken, hot dogs, steak, and pretty much any kind of meat on it. The only downside is the cleaning process with the grill which is only a slight setback.
So there it is, choosing one of these products to buy won’t be easy but they all should please a teenage boy. From personal experience I wish I had these things when I was younger but your teen will not be disappointed this year.
