Boy Gifts For Christmas

If you have teenagers you know that shopping for boys is a lot harder than shopping for girls. Boys are much pickier about what they get than girls are and if it?s not on their list they lose interest really quick. So where does that leave you on Christmas? You want to make sure everyone is happy with their gift but you don't want to ruin the surprise by asking what they want. There are some general categories that are more likely to interest boys though that can be tailored to the specific boy.

Top on the list are video games. There are not a lot of teenage boys out there who do not like video games. The trick is finding the right game genre for your teenager. There are several categories of games out there to choose from. Some of the most popular are the games that can be played online, called multi-player online role playing games. Checking to see what games your teenager already has is an easy way to find out what he likes.

Another great choice is an MP3 player with an iTunes gift card. All teenagers like music and their preferences are a great deal more eclectic than most people realize. My son doesn't like rock or rap. He is a great fan of Classical however and I try to get him gift cards for music as often as possible to encourage his love of the Classics.

Cell phones are everywhere and teenagers of all walks enjoy talking or texting. If they need a new phone or you want to get them a better one, this is a good opportunity to do so. If they already have a phone and pay their own minutes you might want to consider getting paid contract with unlimited minutes or texts. Most companies offer decent contracts for well under $100 a month that features unlimited text, voice and data. This allows your teen to always have a working phone and still be able to access the internet for school research.

This just a few possibilities for Christmas gift ideas for boys. Pay attention to what they are talking about and you will be able to come up with many more ideas on your own. Kids will let you know what they by sharing their interests and this is the best way to find the perfect gift for your teen.
