If you’re looking for cool gifts for your 13 year old boys, here you’ll find ideas for gamers, techies, readers, and sports fans.
Cool Gifts for 13 Year Old Boys
I have included both the PS4 and the PS5 as the PS5 is the newest version of the PlayStation consoles. However, because it’s so new a lot of games have yet to be available for the PS5. It’s up to you to decide which you would like to invest in!
LED Light Strips
These have been a huge hit on TikTok over the past few years and their popularity still hasn’t waned! It’s such a fun bedroom decoration. My daughter has some and she loves them.
Madden NFL ’22
Consistently one of the most popular games, get the newest version of Madden for your teen son this year! Compatible with both Xbox and PlayStation gaming consoles.
Audio Gaming Chair
We first saw these at the neighbor’s house– they are pretty cool, right? Listen to music, watch TV, read, play video games, or just relax. It’s got 4 speakers plus wireless receivers and transmitters and is compatible with most gaming devices.
BENGOO Gaming Headset
Yes, another gaming item. I know not everyone’s sons are gamers but for those who are, this is a must-have for the best gaming experience. They have several color options to choose from!
TeeTurtle Reversible Plushie
Another TikTok sensation, this plush is so cute but also a great way for nonverbal communication! My daughter has had one for a few years and she likes to flip it when she’s in a bad mood- a great warning for us to not bother her until she cools down.
Magic: The Gathering Adventures in The Forgotten Realm
A team-up between Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering, creating the ultimate fantasy card game.
Fjallraven Kanken Backpack
These have been all the rage for years now. Tons of people love these and they’re perfect for back to school!
Another popular gaming console. It offers many exclusive Nintendo games such as Animal Crossing, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, Monster Hunter Rise, Pokèmon Sword & Shield, and more!
Bluetooth Light Up Keyboard
These kinds of keyboard are fantastic! They work for desktops, laptops, as well as phones, and tablets. I find these are much easier to type on and are honestly just fun.
Beginner’s Guitar Set
For those with musically inclined children, this is a perfect starter guitar with picks and a tuner included!
Nerf Rival Kronos Blaster
Great for gameplay with friends, this new and improved blaster includes blaster, 5 rounds, 2 flags, and instructions.
Classic and comfortable.
Wireless, rechargeable headphones that fit inside your backpack or pocket.
Specks Magnetic Balls
Build, mash, smash, mold, sculpt, and engineer with 512 miniature magnets! Teens love these! (And, it’s a nice anxiety, fidget toy for distance learning!)
Built-in cellular lets you do it all on your watch — even while you’re away from your phone. It’s an amazing mini-computer on your wrist.
XBox One S
Get the latest in disc-free gaming with digital games. This newly-released bundle includes your Xbox One S plus Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Fortnight. If you don’t have one already, this is a top gift for 12 year old boys.
Are your kids Minecraft fans? Now they can play this special version of UNO that features Minecraft characters. This game is always a family favorite.
Screaming Goat Book & Figure
This is a weird stocking stuffer that boys love — you can press the bottom and it will make the goat scream!
iPad Pro + Apple Pencil
Both the Pro and the Apple Pencil haves been much-used gifts for both my kids. They’re loving the pencil for drawing apps and think the functionality of the Pro rocks.
Record Player Portable Suitcase with Built-in Speakers
Isn’t this the coolest? 3 speeds with vinyl to MP3 recording, AUX input, speakers, headphone jack and more.
Wear your favorite player’s jersey– this is a popular gift for boys who love football!
