    Help Giving Tree Gift Idea For Teenage Boy ~ 2010

    Hey everyone! Today I picked a tag off of the Giving Tree for a local abuse shelter and we picked a 14 year old boy to select a gift for. Since I do not have teen boys (girls yes) I am not quite sure what to get him.

    His tag says:
    Gender: Male
    Sizes:
    Shirt: 16-18
    Pants 16-18 or 30/32
    Shoes: 10 Mens
    Interests: Skateboarding, socks, biking, snowboarding, Wii games, music (rap, rock, pop), queen size bed

    OK clothing is sort of a boring gift to get for Christmas (IMO) although I could get him something...socks are way dull.

    Queen size bed is out of my budget so I have to work with the fact that he likes skateboarding, biking, snowboarding, wii games and music.

    I am leaning towards a Wii game or two that are skateboarding, snowboarding or biking. Although I have no ideas what hot cool games are out there in those interests.

    Music is such a personal choice and without specific artists I am not sure I could pick out something he likes...

    So I guess my question is what cool Wii games are out there right now that are related to those sports?

    We have a Wii but my kids are much younger and like things like Mario and learning games....

    Well, if you're looking at a Wii game, and have Targets nearby, I've been finding a bunch of Wii games for $25 and less on clearance. They have sports ones as well as fighting games etc.

    Dunno if that helps any though but I wanted to give a suggestion because I think its so great of you to brighten this child's holiday!

    DS1 is 15 and shares similar interests to the boy you have picked. Anything Tony Hawk or Shaun White.

    When in doubt always go into a Game Stop and ask the clerks there. You can always find gently used games for way less than the new ones there. Also my brother who is 26 mind you, like skateboarding, racing bikes etc. I get him the hand skateboards.(Mini skateboards that you use your hands to play with......they have the ramps cool decal etc for them.....I can find these at Target...much better selection...Walmart has them to but you can never find anything like that in stock for too long.)

    Tony Hawk and Shaun White! Great ideas. I knew Tony Hawk...actually have met him back in the day when he skated at Pipeline in my home town in CA but was drawing a blank on the snowboarder guy. I will take a look at Wii games from those guys. Thanks.

    We don't have Target or Game Stop so I will have to just check Walmart or maybe Hastings.

    What about clothes? What would be OK for us to get a teen guy that is not too lame? I am not getting him socks.

    As far as clothing, how about a hoodie? I have never seen a teen yet that didn't wear hoodies.
    Raising children(especially teens) is like being pecked to death by a chicken

    In my defense, I will only bid human beings in the auction forum if it's a MM.

    Or a stocking cap with a skateboarding logo.

    Those are good ideas Mama Stu! I am sure I could find a skateboarding/snowboarding hoodie or cap.

    I just found this game on Amazon for only $17.99 Amazon.com: Shaun White Snowboarding Road Trip: Nintendo Wii: Video Games what do you guys think? Good deal? Something "cool" in the realm of teen boys?

    Last year we picked a teen girl, much easier! LOL

    You might be able to find some good games at

    SecondSpin.com | Browse

    He might enjoy something from a local sporting goods store where they have a good selection of skateboarding stuff.

    Did he really put socks on the list? If so I would get them - dull yes but if you don't have them. Maybe he has to change for sports and has holey ones and is embarrassed? I know a guy who gets them every year from his mom and he really likes them. He loses them throughout the year or they get yucky.
