Teen and tween bot gift ideas

I have 2 boys 13 and 11. I have no clue what to get them. They are pretty done with toys. My 13 year old is always out and about or on his phone.
He has the Nikes retro already, got him the new Madden. Hardly plays any other video games.
Got him some Jets jersey (but now I think he said he's getting traded or something LOL)\.
I am not getting him PS5 and we already have a VR game set bc my DH is a big kid.

I have more ideas for my 11 year old.


Anything for teen boys? Thanks

Some stuff on my sons list:

White Air Force ones (not just a summer shoe anymore lol)
Led lights for room
Crew neck sweater with city name
Army green Converse
Vinyl records (specifically the weekend)
Small drone
Ugg tazman shoes Chat Icon

Things I got him that weren’t on his list that he needed:
Beats headphones
Pajama bottoms
Crew socks (with funny face designs), Nike ones are also in style for teens.
Nike slides

Or Apple gift card, robux if he plays that.

ETA: My son is 14 yrs old.

My almost 13 year old asked for Champion Sweatpants (so excited about that as he was wearing shorts previously), Nike KD15 basketball shoes, Nike baseball cleats with metal spikes, sweatshirts from this company Overtime, a couple of GOAT USA t-shirts, the Nike Salute to Service Giants sweatshirt, some sporting equipment that he needs (and of course wants the more expensive version of) and FIFA for Xbox. He asked for some pink KD15s that are only available in resale.

A lot of his friends are getting tickets to sporting events as their parents are stumped as well.

I have more ideas for my almost 11 year old as well - mainly Lego related as he likes to make stop motion videos with his Legos...

You can never go wrong with tickets ! My son is 16 and he's getting Rangers tix and probably Miami Heat tix. Also you could mix it up and get tix for an away game and take them on a weekend trip to Boston, Philly etc.

My daughter who is 14 is getting concert tickets as one of her big gifts as well.

Did they make you a list? That is the easiest thing to do honestly when they get older as they know exactly what they want.

I got my 13 year old son a funny tshirt, Roblox gift card, LED lights that sync with music for his room, an Axolotl squishmallow, a pack of 15 bracelets (he's started wearing hair ties as bracelets), and I'll get a subscription to Discord Nitro.

Re: Teen and tween bot gift ideas

Have they made a list or requested anything? My kids are 15 and 13 and we are taking them to see a Broadway show (beatlejuice because they think the movie was hilarious). But you could do a sporting event if Broadway does not interest them. In addition to that, they are getting clothing (sweaters, pajamas, socks), books, makeup for my daughter and magic the gathering cards for my son.

12 and 13 year old boys in my house so I feel your pain!

Some of their gifts: Splat guns off Amazon, Beats headphones, $$$ Pollex crocs that I can't believe I bought, Nike Tech hoodies, ink for the 3d printer, ring light and black screen to make videos, electric toothbrushes, nike sweatpants, tshirts and scarves that they picked out at the outlet. We are taking them on a Royal Caribbean cruise which is also part of their present... I may do tickets to something also because I feel like it's not enough to open. We'll see.

So I asked my BFF what her 14 year old wants and she said he loves hoodies, sweatpants, gift cards to his play station.

If he's into sneakers I would do the Nike AF1 as someone mentioned or a pair of Nike Dunks, maybe cologne, body wash, etc.

Re: Teen and tween bot gift ideas

Thanks all! THis was super helpful.
They sort of made lists, but some things they just need like a new charger. LOL Because theirs just broke.
Def lots of hoodies my older son wears, pajamas, I got sneakers, and I like the phone light idea for my younger son, PS4 games and some NY Jets stuff.
I needed ideas for family too.

Sorry I just saw this! I have this one on Amazon. I am pretty tech-oriented and I found it to be kind of annoying to assemble so I can't say I completely recommend it.

Thank you bc the Nike KD 15 sneakers were a hit with my 13 year old. I never heard of them but he loved them and said they're getting really popular and more boys are wearing them. LOL

Can I ask where you both purchased the Nike KD 15 sneakers? Ebay? My son mentioned he wanted these and I could not find them in his size anywhere besides StockX. Thanks!

The ones I ordered I got from Scheels. Nike was out of stock in the color DS wanted - but Scheels had them for the same price.

He wanted another pair that was only available on StockX or Goat (Aunt Pearls) but they were about double in his size, and who knows if they would even fit.

I never realized buying some sneakers is like buying concert tickets for a popular performer lol.
