  • Clothing and Accessories

As opinionated as teenage boys are, they can be a bit hard to read. This makes purchasing gifts an incredibly hard task, but lucky for you, I’ve been chatting with teens for the past year to get insight into their tastes. Below are things I’ve found in my search, plus some extra gifts I think are especially coveted for this age group. Because every teen boy is different, I tried to think of every possible scenario — from the gamer who wants an on-the-go console to the athlete who could use help recovering from workouts. You can use the table of contents to navigate to the category you think will best speak to your teenager. (And if you’ve got an adolescent girl in your life, be sure to check out our list of gifts for teenage girls too.)

Sports gifts for teenage boys

Theragun Mini (1st Gen)

Theragun’s compact massage gun (beloved by trainers and doctors ) helps post-practice recovery. “This would be the best gift,” says 18-year-old athlete Blake Manning.

HoMedics Shiatsu Deluxe Foot Massager

HoMedics Shiatsu Foot Massager is a fraction of the price and a lot less bulky than other foot massagers , so he won’t have trouble storing it.

Yeti Rambler 26 oz. Bottle with Chug Cap

Yeti’s Rambler is easy enough to bring to sports practices and carry around the house. Everyone from New York Magazine writers to celebrities love it for being so well insulated , dent proof, and status-y.

Mobot Big Bertha 2-in-1 Foam Roller Water Bottle with Straw

If he frequently forgets gear for practice, gift him this water bottle slash foam roller. Strategist writer Jeremy Rellosa says it’s “big enough to roll out my quads and IT band, but small enough to fit in my backpack.”

Hoka Ora Recovery 3 Slide

He’d also enjoy slipping on a pair of Hoka’s cushy recovery slides (recommended to us by Chris Black ) after practice.

OffCourt Performance Body Spray, Fresh Citron + Driftwood

Here’s a non-Axe deodorant spray that doubles as his new signature scent. He’ll thank you later.

Adidas Tango Glider Soccer Ball

If he’s a soccer or basketball player, he’ll appreciate a high-quality ball. Go with a size-five soccer ball or size-seven basketball, which are both recommended for ages 13 and all the way up to pro level.

Spikeball 3 Ball Game Set

Athlete or not, he probably likes spending time with his friends outdoors. Teens are into this fast-paced game that can easily be set up in a yard or nearby park.

Baden Champions Volleyball Badminton Combo Set

Manning, who has a Spikeball set, says he’d like any other outdoor group activity. This set comes complete with a net, volleyball, poles, stakes, boundary lines, racquets, and a carrying case for playing volleyball or badminton.

’47 New York Yankees Classic Baseball Hat

You can’t go wrong with a baseball hat for the loyal sports fan. Stick with a ’47 hat because they’re good quality, and they make hats for NBA, NHL, NFL, and college teams too.

Music gifts for teenage boys

Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones

Headphones were the No. 1 music gifts on teen boys’ wishlists. We suggest going with any of these over-the-ear options, because they’re trendy and perfect for gaming, working out, or just zoning into their favorite music.

Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 3

Bluetooth speakers came second. This one (which happens to be our best overall pick) is portable and, most importantly, durable enough to handle anything a teen boy can throw at it.

JBL Clip 4 Portable Mini Bluetooth Speaker

An even tinier speaker with a clip design for the teen who frequently misplaces things.

Audio-Technica AT-LP60XBT-BK Fully Automatic Wireless Belt-Drive Turntable

Here’s a more analog experience. The all-in-one-style Victrola is a perfect beginner record player , while the fully automatic, high-quality Audio-Technica will please any audiophile.

Yamaha PSR-EW310 Digital Piano With Stand and Bench

A couple of artsy teens I spoke to said friends are making their own music. This Yamaha has modes for learning and has 76 keys (versus other beginner keyboards with only 61 keys).

Yamaha F335 Acoustic Guitar

If he’s picking up guitar, this is a really basic, simple-sounding acoustic that’s sturdy and nice.

Pioneer DDJ-200 Smart DJ Controller

And the aspiring DJ would love this easy, musician-approved controller . It’s portable and has everything he needs to learn the basics.

‘Rap Capital: An Atlanta Story,’ by Joe Coscarelli

Joe Coscarelli’s book on Atlanta’s rap scene, Rap Capital , covers his favorite artists like Lil Baby and Migos, and he’ll learn about lesser known but equally important players in the industry.

‘The Creative Act,’ by Rick Rubin

One teen told us this was a surprising-yet-delightful gift he received recently. He admits he had to Google who Rick Rubin was, but was immediately impressed by all the artists he’s produced for.

Gadget gifts for teenage boys

Philips Hue Smart Lightstrip Starter Kit

One recent college student and another high school teen told us light strips were at the top of their wishlists for decor. This bundle comes with everything he needs to connect the color-changing lighting to Google assistant or Alexa.

Nellsi Sunset Lamp Projection

Here’s another fun alternative lighting option that’s portable and can shine in 16 different colors.

Fujifilm Instax Mini Link 2 Smartphone Printer

This on-the-go printer turns smartphone pictures into Polaroid-like prints in minutes.

Fujifilm Quicksnap 135 Flash 400-27exp Camera

While pretty low-tech, disposable cameras are a hit with teens.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 Instant Camera

For something they can use longer, gift them an Instax camera. Consider throwing in extra packs of film, too, since it can get a bit pricey for a teen’s budget.

Anker PowerCore Fusion

A portable charger is probably the most practical gift for the teen who’s glued to his phone. I personally like this two-in-one wall and portable charger because it rarely runs out of juice.

YouTube Premium

Multiple teens I spoke to said a YouTube Premium subscription was the No. 1 streaming service they’d want. “I don’t really watch Netflix or Hulu, or I use my parents’ account,” says teen Jacob.

Crunchyroll Digital Gift

But if they’re an anime fan , gift them a subscription to Crunchyroll, which distributes popular shows like One Piece, Attack on Titan, and Mob Psycho. Strategist senior editor Winnie Yang gifted a subscription to her now-14-year-old nephew two Christmases and says, “It’s been a big hit.”

Miroir M190 Mini Pro Projector

This mini- projector is an inexpensive, easy way to turn his room into a makeshift home theater. And he can use it for years to come, even when he goes off to college.

Gaming gifts for teenage boys

Xbox Series X

While it’s a splurge, teen Jacob told us the newest Xbox is the most coveted thing on his wishlist. We recommend buying it early while still in stock since it’s likely to sell out closer to the holidays.

Sony PlayStation 5 Digital Edition Console

The same rules as the above apply to the PlayStation 5 (another console that topped teens’ wishlists).

Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch is still a hot console with teens, especially ones who like playing games with friends IRL. Plus, it’s a less-expensive, more available alternative to the two consoles mentioned.

Nintendo Switch Lite

For $100 less, you can gift the Nintendo Switch Lite. It’s smaller and more portable but is handheld only. It’s likely better (and more cost effective) if he doesn’t have a TV in his room or prefers gaming on-the-go.


If he already has a Switch, this game was at the top of Beacon high-schoolers’ wishlists .

Backbone One

For something even more affordable but just as fun, we recommend this portable device that turns gaming on iPhones into a “ first-class experience. ” Just be sure your teen has an iPhone before purchasing.

SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless Gaming Headset

Any gamer needs a headset, and this one’s versatile enough to work wirelessly for Switch, PS4, PC, and Android phones.

Glorious Model O Gaming Mouse

If he prefers gaming on a computer, this lightweight mouse is well-known among gamers for speed and control. One tech TikToker suggests going with the wired version because you won’t risk the mouse dying in the middle of a game.

Nacon Revolution X

Whether he’s into gaming on a PC or Xbox, he’ll appreciate a controller nicer than the standard fare. This one, recommended by our friends over at the Verge , has four customizable rear buttons, adjustable sticks, and optional weights to insert into the grips to give it more heft.

Forza Motorsport Standard Edition - Xbox Series X

If he already has a gaming console, we suggest buying him the newest video game from a franchise he’s a fan of. A couple of new releases this fall that you can buy now or pre-order are Forza Motorsport , Call of Duty Modern Warfare III , and EA Sports FC 24 .

Microsoft Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

And if you’re having trouble picking a game, he’d be just as happy to receive a premium subscription for his console of choice. They allow access to games, the ability to play online against other players, and more.

Clothing and accessory gifts for teenage boys

Vans Old Skool Sneakers

You can’t go wrong gifting a teen boy sneakers . Vans are a classic choice that won’t fall out of style anytime soon.

Nike Air Force 1

Here’s another classic. There’s a reason why Nike Air Forces consistently show up on teen polls year after year: They’re comfortable, versatile, and pretty affordable for stylish sneakers .

Adidas Samba OG Sneaker

On the trendier side are Adidas Sambas, which were called out by multiple teens. Luckily, they’re in stock in men’s sizing, so we suggest going with a pair with some color instead of just black and white.

Under Armour Men's Woven Vital Workout Pants

Sweatpants make a great stand-alone gift, or make it a set with any of the hoodies below. Teen-favorite Under Armour makes stretchy, breathable sweatpants in a wide variety of colors and both regular and tall sizes.

Reigning Champ Midweight Terry Slim Sweatpant

For a more elevated pair, go with Reigning Champ’s structured sweats that are built to last.

Champion Life Pullover Hoodie

Even if he already has a hoodie, he’ll appreciate another one. Champion and Hollister were name dropped by teens, and we included Todd Snyder’s as a splurge-worthy option.

Leatherology Black Onyx Men's Thin Bifold Wallet

A super-practical yet stylish gift for the teen who just got his driver’s license.

Fjallraven Kanken Laptop 15-Inch Backpack

If he needs to replace his worn-out Jansport, go with Fjällräven’s teen-favorite backpack . It’s dirt and water resistant, too, so it can handle anything your teen might throw at it.

The Ultimate Gift Guide for 15-Year-Old Boys

Teens are notoriously hard to shop for, but you'll definitely find something unique for him here.

Headshot of Jeff Bogle

Because it's been a hot minute since I was 15, and because most of what’s available to kids today didn’t exist in 1991, I've consulted three experts of the genre: my own 15-year-old, their 19-year-old sister who works at MonkeyFish Toys , an independent toy store close to our home in the Philly 'burbs, and that store's owner, KC Olafsson. My goal was to understand what 15-year-old boys are into right now, what they do and play with, and, if they were to make one last list for Santa or would speak freely and openly to anyone at all, what would they say they want for a birthday or graduation gift , or to find wrapped under a tree at year's end.

When all their preferences were added in — plus insights from other Good Housekeeping Institute experts and editors — these emerged as the best gifts for 15-year-old boys in 2023. The result is a comprehensive gift guide for 15-year-old boys, whether they dig sports or want to bury their head in a book, could bake all weekend, like to build things or are happiest binge-watching movies and TV shows.

Sky Viper Vector Performance Stunt Jet

Vector Performance Stunt Jet

Good Housekeeping Institute testers were wowed by how high and how fast this one could fly — and yet, they found it easy to liftoff and land. Tester also liked taking the time to master the controls and perfect their stunts. Ages 12+

The Iceman's Purse Creative Writing Journal

The Iceman's Purse Creative Writing Journal

If the 15-year-old in question has a knack for storytelling and world-building, the last thing you want is a bad case of writer's block to shake their confidence and make them lose interest in that form of creativity. Skilled author Renee Agatep has created a journal filled with prompts and quotes to kickstart creativity and get their writerly juices flowing again. Just remind them to thank you in their novel's acknowledgments.

Hip Town Game

Hip Town Game

If the teen in your life loves Sims and Monopoly but rarely has the time to play either, Hip Town is the perfect world-building game for them and their friends. The object is to build the coolest town possible, filled with businesses like craft cocktail bars or artisan pickleries. Whoever has the most Hip Points at the end wins.

Temporary Tattoo Markers

Temporary Tattoo Markers

Like my own 15-year-old, the teen in your life probably has a wish list of tattoos they want to be permanently inked on their skin. Until the day comes when they can legally get them on their own and afford to pay for their dream tattoos, this awesome temporary tattoo marker and stencil set should suffice. The company promises the tattoos wash off with soap and water (though some take a few washes).

Rubik’s Phantom

Rubik’s Phantom

It's a fidget toy that develops hand-eye coordination and presents any teen with a challenge because, at first glance, there are no colors on this Rubik's Cube. Instead, the heat of his fingers will illuminate the patterns briefly and then your 15-year-old must work to solve this awesome puzzle.

100 Movies Scratch Off Poster

100 Movies Scratch Off Poster

If he's a budding cinephile, give him this poster as a road map to history's all-time great movies. As he watches each one, he gets to scratch off the square, and the poster gets more and more colorful the more he watches. (Note: Some of the movies are rated R, so it might take him a few years to finish.)

Tech Stretch Sleeveless Hoodie

Tech Stretch Sleeveless Hoodie

With a little bit of elastane, this hoodie is stretchy, soft, breathable, and extremely comfortable for an after-school workout, a bike ride around the neighborhood this summer or simply playing games online with his friends long into the night. It also comes in six different colors.

Sneaker Balls Deodorizer

Sneaker Balls Deodorizer

You may battle your teen when it comes to homework, curfew and eating you out of house and home, but no fight stinks more than the smell of 15-year-old boys! These sneaker balls will deodorize his shoes, duffel bag and laundry basket — it's really something the whole family will appreciate.

Champion Sueded Fleece Joggers

Sueded Fleece Joggers

Comfort is key for most teens, whether at school, on the couch or on the b-ball court. These warm, suede fleece Champion joggers are so soft and so very cool.

Disc Golf Set

Disc Golf Set

Either way, Disc Golf is a rad activity to play alone, with family or friends. This set has a driver, a mid-range and a putter to get them started.

Screen Magnifier

Does the teen in your life watch movies, games and TV on his phone? Of course, he does, he's 15! This gadget magnifies his phone screen to a bright, beautiful 12 inches, so he doesn't have to worry about eye strain.

Shape-Shifting Box

Shape-Shifting Box

Quite possibly the coolest and best-designed fidget toy, a Shashibo Shape-Shifting Box is equally ideal for a teen struggling with anxiety as it is for a 15-year-old who loves art and making things with his hands. The box unfolds into different shapes, revealing different patterns, and then folds back up into a cube again.

Rhyme Antics Game

Rhyme Antics Game

A freestyle rap battle game that builds vocabulary and is positively hilarious whether played with friends or family members, this is the best interactive board or card game on the market for teens today.

Gooseneck Phone Holder

3 in 1 Wireless Charging Station

3 in 1 Wireless Charging Station

Teenagers can be difficult to read. We’re sure most adults can remember a time in their teens filled with a lot of woe-is-me feelings. Finding the right gift for 15-year-old boys is always difficult, but with a little insight into their tastes, it’s possible to meet (and exceed) their expectations. Assuming you know just the kind of teen you’ve got on your hands, we can help you get their attention in the best way possible. We’ve put together a list of gifts any 15-year-old would appreciate.

Choosing the best gifts for 15-year-old boys

15-year-old boys are typically concerned with the latest gadgets, gear, and fashions. At this age, self-expression and peer approval are very important. When choosing gifts for 15-year-old boys, it’s best to focus on interests, age compatibility, educational value, and safety, rather than focusing on what’s trending.

At this age, your teen will be developing a unique personality and their body might be changing as well. Gifts should reflect their changing state and adapt to where they are in their development. Focus on building confidence and helping them express themselves in the way they want to. They’ll be exploring more complex subject matter and their thought processes will in turn also become more complex. This means more mature gifts, reading material and entertainment may be necessary (within reason, of course). This is also the right time to start preparing them for more independence and responsibility as well as thinking about what they want for their future.

At this stage, their strength, mobility, and coordination are at their peak. Outdoor interests should be encouraged and supported. Buy them gear to support their hobby, take an interest, and watch them flourish.

How we identified the best gifts for 15-year-old boys

When we evaluated the best gifts for 15-year-old boys, we examined what they were exploring at this stage in their development. They’re more mature now, with complex thought processes and a new understanding of the world around them. They’re examining their own feelings about things like politics, religion, sexuality, the future, self-expression, and what values they believe are important.

Our main goal was to help nurture their current interests in safe and age-appropriate ways. For those interested in tech, art, and gadgets we compiled a list of cool items to set them on the right track and introduce them to new concepts that they’ll be able to handle, like 3D art, lighting, and drone work. 15-year-old boys are also highly active at this age and that needs to be encouraged. We included gifts that focus on mobility, hand-eye coordination, and endurance, all of which boys of this age group are now highly skilled at.

Thinking about their future is also something to encourage at this age. The earlier, the better, as they say. We’ve included some items like the game “Things They Don’t Teach You At School” to really get them thinking about what they want from life and the gray areas that we must all grapple with at some point.

Tips for buying the best gifts for 15-year-old boys

  • Nurture their interests and hobbies Teens need to feel supported to build confidence. Take an interest in their lives and ask questions about what they like and dislike. This will give you better insight into what gifts they want, as well as into who they are as people.
  • Try merging fun with function If possible, get gifts that are both fun and functional. It’s nice to get what we want, but sometimes it’s better to get what we need. Find a way to bridge the two and kill two birds with one stone.
  • Encourage self-development and discovery When looking for gifts, try to select items that help them develop themselves mentally and emotionally. It’s best to start prepping for the future as early as possible and think about your values and what you want for your life. Cognitively, they’re able to think these concepts through, so start by getting gifts that encourage this. Guides to adulthood guides to finance and planning are all good ideas in this regard.

What are some good choices for gifts for 15 year old boys?

15-year-old boys nowadays are all about the latest tech and trends. Brush up on your knowledge of the zeitgeist and get cracking on the best gifts for 15-year-old boys! You may just discover your own new obsession! Whether it’s the latest Nintendo, Call of Duty game, or wireless earphones, you’re sure to find something.

What are some unique gifts for 15 year old boys?

Some unique gifts for 15-year-old boys consist of anything personalized or niche. Get to know your teenager and see what makes them tick. A thoughtful option is a neon sign with their name, an engraved headphone stand, or anything that shows you really know them.

What gifts do 15 year old boys like?

Teenagers are notoriously tricky to buy for. You have to keep on top of ever-changing interests as well as the latest trends. When it comes to gifts 15-year-old boys like, a good option is to take note of whether they are into sports, music, gaming, or tech and base your choices on that.

Other Great Gift Options

If your teenager doesn't need anymore tech gadgets or sports gear, consider an outing as a substitute for a birthday gift this year. Consider a cooking class you can take together, a sporting event, a round of laser tag with his friends, or a concert for his favorite artist. Gifts like these create unforgettable memories he can cherish for a lifetime, especially when the gift doubles as a bonding experience for friends and family.

Tips on Choosing a Gift for a 15-Year-Old Boy

Most teens are more interested in gear than toys, so most of our recommendations are for items that they can use into adulthood. Gifts for teens start to get more expensive, so make sure that your 15-year-old boy can handle the additional responsibility that comes with taking care of a more delicate piece of equipment.

Fifteen-year-old boys can start taking more responsibility for their own safety, with everything from helmets and protective gear to stylish cases for tech products available for them. Consider including one with your gift (especially if buying something like the Retrospec Zed Bamboo Longboard ) if you have a good idea of their personal style. You could also add a gift card to their favorite retailer so that they can pick one out themselves.

Consider how your teen will use their gift. For example, bags, like the Herschel Pop Quiz Backpack , should have enough space for a laptop, school books, and other things that they need to be ready for their day. Look for tech that they can use with educational apps to maximize their learning. Chuck English , Virginia STEM Coordinator at the Science Museum of Virginia, says that engaging with electronics has changed over the years. “Screen time now is not all passive. There is some active engagement—games, social interactions—we need to consider some of that.”

Many teens use their tech in a variety of ways, so make sure that any tech gifts that you choose are compatible with the gear that they already have and love, like the Apple AirPods if he already owns an iPhone. Most work with multiple platforms, such as Apple or Google, but some have specific models for each. Check with your teen or their parents to see which they prefer.

66 Best Gifts for Teen Boys 2023

Finding the best gifts for teenage boys can be a challenge. They likely aren't into the same things they were a few years ago as a preteen, and may still be a year or two away from needing gifts for college . Sure, shopping for teenage girl gifts may come a little easier, but trust that there is a sweet spot for teen boy gifts that don't require a whole lot of guesswork.

No matter what era they’re presently in, there are plenty of teen gift options to choose from. Start by narrowing your list down by hobbies like gaming or sports, then look for things like trivia games or a pair of techy headphones. Maybe your 14-year-old brother just started high school and is really into clothes. Lace him with a classic pair of kicks (you can't go wrong with the Red Cement Air Jordan 4's ) or a drippy new sweatsuit (like this Hugo Boss lounge set ). If you have a friend's Sweet 16 coming up and are on the hunt for a gift that's unique , a cool drone or mini projector might be the way to go.

With the help of teens and some cues from TikTok, we put together the ultimate list of the best gifts for teenage boys. So whether you're shopping for the person who has everything, looking for something unusual for your picky boyfriend, or celebrating a milestone moment in their academic career, look ahead for teen boy gifts they’ll actually love.
