Thirteen marks the beginning of the dreaded teenage years; as a child turns 13, they begin a mental shift in their self-perception. No longer do they see themselves as a child but instead they begin to adopt that “teenager” label. A 13-year-old boy may begin to feel more independent during this time and will certainly want to have their opinion heard and exercise increasing amounts of control over their body, their environment and their need for privacy.

In some ways this makes buying a gift easier as they express quite clear interests and you can purchase something that fits in with these. Many 13-year-olds still desire affirmation from adults, and care about what grown-ups think of them despite expressing the contrary! Choosing a gift that reflects a 13-year-old’s interests and abilities as well as opening up new skills is a great way of showing your approval. We’ve put together a list of 30 gifts that will appeal to 13-year-old boys.
