A birthday gift for a teen boy can sometimes seem difficult to track down, but it doesn't have to be. Focus on purchasing the teenage boy on your list something fun, yet practical: something he'll be sure to use all year.
They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, and a teenage boy is no exception. Find out what his favorite baked goods are and flex your baking muscles by whipping him up a batch of his favorite brownies or cookies. Place them in a decorative and festive tin and wrap it with a bow. If you're unsure of your cooking skills, you can easily purchase baked goods to go at most bakeries. RedEnvelope stocks a birthday box of Mrs. Fields nibbler cookies that can be purchased online and mailed right to your teen boy's doorstep.
Most teenage boys love to listen to music, so further their interest by purchasing him state-of-the-art headphones or ear buds. Many electronic stores offer a great selection of headsets to make the music sound crisper and louder, helping cancel out other noise that may get in the way of the beats. RedEnvelope stocks Bose Ear Buds, which offer unparalleled quality and clarity. RedEnvelope's headphones also sit in the ear bowl instead of the ear canal, making them that much safer to wear.
Although something to promote academic learning may not seem especially fun, it can help develop his mind and keep him on task. Purchase him a mural map of the world to help him with his geography, a study pillow or a book on his favorite historical figure. Talk to his parents about what he is studying or is interested in and find some fun way to promote the activity. RedEnvelope offers a floating desktop globe, which floats in midair, thanks to the magic of magnetism. Let him learn a little bit of geography and marvel in the wonders of science at the same time.
