❤️Valentine’s Day Gifts for Teenage Guys

I remember very well picking out Valentine’s day gifts for my boyfriend when I was a teenager.  

It was so much fun! Welllll…fun once I got past the idea of trying to figure out what to get him. 

I’m going to save you some agony with plenty of ideas that are pretty budget-friendly, and lovable by the teenage guys in your life. 

Car Cleaning Kit

Help them keep their vehicle clean and sparkling with this car cleaning kit

gifts for new teen drivers

Psst: here are a bunch of other gift ideas for new teen drivers.

Throw Throw Burrito Game

Sooo…this looks absolutely hilarious (and teenage-guy-worthy). 

From the makers of Exploding Kittens comes Throw Throw Burrito Game. Players all play at the same time, making it fast-pace and attention-keeping. And at some point, there are burrito brawls! 

Here’s a video to explain it better: 

Infinity Cube Fidget Toy

Does your teenage guy like to fidget with things? This one is quite classy and grown-up

Guy Approved Airpods Case

You can choose from this Stormtrooper design, or this Batman design

Giant Candy

Get them a Giant Hershey Kiss, or a 1-Lb Chocolate Bar.

That’ll turn some heads!

Traditional Slingshot

If you’ve got some space in the backyard (meaning, you’re not right up against the neighbors’ house), then a traditional slingshot could be a great gift!

Toaster Bags

Teenage boys be…hungry. Am I right? They seem to want to eat all the time!

Help them make something quick (like a grilled cheese sandwich) with these BPA-free and otherwise safe toaster bags. No need to start the oven up…just use a toaster!

Bonus: this one is also great because it’s reusable, so they can take these with them (plus a toaster) to either college or their first apartment!

Sports Illustrated (Kids)

Is your teen guy into sports? They can keep up with all of the latest sports news (plus get snail-mail, which is always fun) with a Sports Illustrated magazine subscription. 

Laundry punching bag

You might actually score some brownie points with your teen boyfriend’s Mom if you get this for him and he starts keeping all his dirty laundry in one spot!

Lanyard for his favorite sports team

What’s his favorite team? You can find a really classy-looking sports lanyard for him to put his car keys and any other keys onto. 

Speaking of cars…

Car Door Welcome Logo Light

How cool would your teenage guy feel if, when they opened their side of the car or their own car door, a Batman laser logo appeared? No drill-holes needed, and this one comes with the Batman logo. 

Car Documents Holder

If he’s a car owner, then getting him this car documents holder will help him to stay organized (you know, the insurance papers, the car manual, and anything else to do with the car).
