The teenage boys, ages 14 to 19 are now very young men. They start to take interest in the opposite sex, make bonds (that last) with other guys and most importantly, have needs different from the children they used to be.
If your teenage guy (or boyfriend) is hanging a Christmas stocking on the mantlepiece, you have to put some goodies in it! No idea what to add? You can look at this long list of 61 stocking stuffer ideas for teenage boys.
What Should a Stocking Stuffer for Teenage Boys Should Be?
Glad you asked! Teenage boys are obviously not children anymore, so do not add boy toys in there. They are interested in gadgets, music and sports. Teenage boys are also starting to take interest in girls, so anything that will make them cool and more confident to the opposite sex is a welcome gift.
What you should avoid is getting him stuff that baby him, so goodbye, “Mama’s Boy” shirt!
Also, a stocking stuffer is something you shove into his Christmas stocking. Therefore, big, bulky gifts are not stocking stuffers. These fall into the gift-wrapped present to be put under the Christmas tree.
You should add multiple gifts inside the teenage guy’s Christmas stocking, too. I think that the best stockings have quite a few items in it so, feel free to take a very detailed look on this list.
Because guys love electronic gadgets, you should give your teenage boy the present that he wants! There are many cool electronic gadgets that can fit into his Christmas stocking. Good useful gift ideas include music, smartphone and toy gadgets. Here are a few that caught my eyes. These are perfect stocking stuffers for teenage boys who love tech!
- Fun USB Flash Drive, like this super cool watermelon flash drive
- Non-Tangle Earbuds
- Tile (This is a key or phone finding device, perfect if the guy keeps losing the house keys or his iPhone)
- Chargelight (This is a 3-in-1 Smartphone gadget. Too cool.)
- Cable organizer
