One of the hottest tech buys out there these days are virtual reality headsets. This one is SO affordable, and works incredibly well! There’s nothing quite as cool as putting on a headset and transporting to different places in different elements of the world. There’s tons of games to play while in this ‘virtual’ space too.
While Beats are pricier, they are an investment well worth the price. They work better than most other brands and they’ll last forever! Any teen boy will love receiving these – and you won’t have to hear their music, so it’s a win-win! 😉
3. GoPro Hero+
Having a GoPro makes every day a little more exciting. Whether your boys are adventuring out in the backyard or you’re on a family trip, having a GoPro is a must! It’s waterproof (and basically impossible to break) so the boys can capture their most exciting memories on camera.
This mini drone set is pretty cool – you don’t *technically* have to worry about them breaking anything since it’s so small, but it’s great for indoors or outdoors! This mini drone lights up and will keep them occupied for hours!
This NERF blaster set is a great way for boys to enjoy some time outside with their friends – in fact, getting them outside has never been easier! A fun, old-school toy that will have them playing and running around no matter how old they are.
These days, everyone needs a portable battery for their phone. Your teen will love this power charger that is small, yet works so well to charge their phones on the go. You’ll never have to worry about their phones dying while they’re out again!
These Nike sneakers are a great deal and such a nice pair. Boys can never have too many pairs of sneakers, and they will love these for every day wear.
8. Coding Robot
This coding robot is quite incredible. It links up to its app on your phone, it’s pocket-sized, and you can make it do things straight from the app. It’s a cool way to put their brains to work while still letting them have some fun!
Instead of the boys having their video games blaring in your house, gift them this gaming headset and you’ll never have to hear the sounds of those games again! It even has a microphone so they can easily chat with their friends in video-enabled games.
This LEGO building set is perfect for your builder – they can create a fun, yellow sports car and use their imagination and put something new together.
11. Bluetooth Beanie
They don’t even have to know this game has an education factor to it, but it does! It runs simply on kinetic energy and they’ll learn without even recognizing it. This will provide hours of indoor fun!
An over-the-door basketball hoop is every sports loving boy’s dream come true! It fits perfectly over a bedroom door and will keep them entertained alone or with their friends. (Trust me, we own three of them!)
I know there’s always been some concern over these boards, but this one has been certified and it’s at a great, affordable price. This was the “it” gift two seasons ago, but it is still a TON of fun for kids. The technology that goes into these is incredible, and it even has LED lights and is completely waterproof if they’ll be riding outdoors.
Not only is this LEGO set fun to build, but it looks realistic AND really pretty! Its details of the New York City skyline are stunning and will provide tons of fun for boys who love architecture and LEGO.
What’s on your son’s wish list this year?
