Boys in their early teens can be especially difficult to buy a Christmas gift for. The perfect modern day solution to this gift buying dilemma is to purchase a gift card for a boy in their early teens. Boys at this age may be interested in specific clothing styles, music, video games, sports, or computers. Gift cards based on their interests will make it easy for both the giver and receiver to be happy with the gift choice. Generally, gift cards for boys in their early teens should be between $20-$100, depending on how much you plan to spend. This year consider some of the following possibilities for giving a gift card to boys in their early teens.
1. Target or Walmart Gift Cards
A gift card to Target or Walmart is a good choice for boys in their early teens because both stores have a variety of shopping choices for boys in this age range. Music CDs, video games, outdoor and sporting equipment, computer games, and other popular shopping favorites for boys can be found at both stores for reasonable prices. If there is a local Target or Walmart nearby, consider a gift card.
2. Video Game Gift Cards
Most boys in their early teens have an interest in video games. One of the best gift card ideas for a boy in their early teens who likes to play video games is a gift card to a local or online retailer. It can be difficult to select a video game for boys in their early teens because most teens have specific interests in the types of games they enjoy. Some enjoy adventure type video games, while others are fans of Rock Band games or Guitar Hero series games. One way to choose the perfect gift for a young teen gamer is to give a gift card to a retailer such as Gamestop, Best Buy, or a local game store retailer.
3. An iTunes Gift Card
The perfect gift for boys in their early teens who love their iPod is a gift card loaded with iTunes bucks. Major retailers such as K-mart, Target, and Walmart have iTunes gift cards available in store. Another option is to purchase the iTunes gift card directly from the iTunes website. These gift cards will allow teens to use the value of the gift card towards music downloads on their iPod.
4. Visa Gift Card
Boys in their early teens will be happy with a Visa gift card for the holidays. Visa gift cards can be pre-loaded with a set amount of money and used as a credit/debit card at online and local retailers. Visa gift cards are a great idea especially for teens who like to shop online but do not have access to a credit card. Teens can shop anywhere with a Visa gift card and can add funds later on to their Visa gift card. This is an ideal choice for boys in their early teens who are hard to buy for.
5. Gift Cards for Popular Clothing Retailers
A gift card to one of the popular clothing retailers for boys in their early teens is an excellent choice for fashion conscious teens. Boys at this age can be incredibly picky and the hoodie you thought might be the perfect gift may turn out to be the wrong color or brand. Save yourself the return and buy a gift card to one of the local or online retailers popular with boys in their early teens.
Popular clothing retailers include Aeropostale, Hollister, American Eagle, and Abercrombie and Fitch. A gift card will give teens the chance to pick out their favorite fashion piece at one of these popular teen clothing stores. Gift cards can be purchased at all of these retailers in-store or online.
