Today we’re sharing 11 gift ideas for the toughest holiday nut to crack: The Teenage Boy.
Are there any young men in your life – like sons, nephews and other special guys – who you want to give a gift to but have no idea what they’d like? This has been one of my biggest holiday challenges for years!
It’s always been difficult to come up with ideas – for both myself and others – about what my two teenage boys would be more than politely ambivalent about receiving.
Yes, they have manners and are appreciative – but if you’ve tried to give anything to a teenage boy . . . then you know exactly what I mean.
This year I’m delighted that my brainstorming can be helpful for me, my family, and Commandress readers!
There hasn’t been a eureka moment, but after much deliberation I’ve pulled together what I think are some bright ideas . . . like this headlamp from BrightSpark ($24.99; free shipping).
Believe me, your guy will use it and like it, too!

Next up – whether your guy is an athlete or not, a water bottle is always a good gift. My son, Evan, can always taste the plastic. That’s why I’ve picked out a glass water bottle this year.
My guys are born and bred Saints fans so they will love this extra-large beach towel. ($24.95; free shipping). Geaux Saints!
