Holiday Gift Guide – Teen Boys and Young Men

24 total views

Happy Friday, ladies. The weeks seem to be getting shorter and shorter, or is it just me? Teen boys and young men are notoriously hard to buy for. Since my son is in his early 40s and my grandson doesn’t become a teen for 4 more years, I’m totally out of touch with the gifts that teens would like.

We got the inside scoop on this subject from Amy a few years ago, and she’s been gracious enough to help this year too. Amy helps me with lots of things on the back end of this blog and has a teen son plus a young man in college, so she really knows the ropes and the best gifts for teenage boys. Please welcome Amy!

Teen boys are so finicky, and I would say one of the hardest to buy for on my list. I came up with a few good ideas in almost every price range to give your teen something to smile about this season.
