Top 10 Gifts for Guys – Ages 14-18
Who says socks for Christmas has to be boring!
Countless fashion blogs are claiming stylish socks are big and just getting bigger. Pants end a little higher nowadays and as your boy turns into a man a few pairs of awesome socks will help him create his own style.
E.N.O. Singlenest Hammock starting around $55
Boys need to be outside! A great way to get guys off the couch and under the trees is a hammock they set up anywhere. E.N.O. hammocks are among the most popular brands and everyone I know who owns one of their products is satisfied.
LED Head Lamp around $25
If your son is the outdoorsy type, it’s safe to say the setting sun won’t stop his fun! These headlamps are surprising bright and illuminate everything directly in front of your eyes perfectly. The first time I tried one out I was shocked how well I could navigate the woods without stumbling or bumping into anything at all. Keep your son safe on his adventures with a handy headlamp.
Pre-Owned Video Games from Gamestop, starting around $4.99
This gifts takes them back inside, but I’m sure video games will be on a lot of guys’ Christmas lists. Keep these gifts on the frugal side by buying games pre-owned. These games won’t be the new releases everyone’s talking about, but can still make great gifts for hours of fun!
A Ukulele, around $30
Challenge your son to learn something new this Christmas. I used the ukulele as an example because of this video where Josh Kaufman shows you how to learn the ukulele in 20 hours! It will be a challenge alone to wacth this video and not feel motivated!
Remote Controlled Helicopter starting at $16
I’m always surprised when I see sales on remote controlled helicopters that fall under $20, but around Christmas there always around that. If this gift is waiting for your son on Christmas morning I guarantee it will be the first gift he wants to try out!
Spikeball Set, around $60-$70
This game has invaded college campuses and church retreats. If your son hasn’t already played, he is guaranteed to love it! The game is easy to set up and everything fits into a bag so you won’t lose any pieces.
Portable Ping Pong Set $40
I’ve noticed when guys are into ping pong they get VERY into ping pong. Now they take this set with them and challenge anyone who’s up for a game! The net is adjustable up to 72 inches.
A Journal starts around $9
Journaling is a healthy for men of any age. It’s more than a gathering of ones thoughts; rather its a way to see how your outlook grows over time with a written record. Once the pen goes to paper, you can get lost in what you mind communicates to your hand. For more inspiration check out this articles on the benefits of journaling!
Flannel Shirts, start around $21
If you use Christmas as an opportunity to buy your son some new clothes – go flannel this year! They go great with any pair of jeans and there are tons of styles and colors to pick from! OldNavy.com has a large selection and is a good place to start shopping around.
