Gift Guide – Teen Boys Fashion
Gift Guide - Teen Boys Fashion
To create the absolute best gift guide for teen boys for Christmas 2019, I went right to the source. My 16 year old nephew has a wide range of interests. He loves music, art, and video games. He's also on top of the trendiest of trends. He's meticulous about his clothes and massive collection of sneakers, kicks, tennis shoes, or whatever you opt to call them.
So, I turned to him to put together a list of the top ten fashion-related gift ideas for teen boys. Although I can tell that some of this picks will apply to the older "kids at heart" as well.
The Teen Boys Gift Guide - Fashion
Commes des Garçon x Converse
The name may not immediately give it away, but these are souped-up Chuck Taylors. If you didn't see the little heart, you may have thought that we time warped back to the 80s or 90s. But, hey, Converse is always in fashion, right? These vintage-style sneaks run $135 and you can order them online from Nordstrom.
Dr. Martens Boots
They made their first appearance in 1901 in Northamptonshire, England. Dr. Martens were first worn as work boots, but have become a vintage fashion mainstay. They now come in a variety of styles and colors. Our pick is the 1460 Smooth. They'll run you $140 on the "Doc" Martens website. You can get the 1460 and some of the other styles a bit cheaper on Amazon as well, but you won't have the full collection in front of you.
Nike Air Jordan 1 Mid SE Fearless Blue the Great
You'll have to bid for this one. These Air Jordans are the product of Nike's collaboration wtih LA artist, Blue the Great, hence the name. "As part of the Fearless Pack, Jordan Brand tapped LA-based artist Blue the Great to design the Jordan 1 Mid SE Fearless Blue the Great..." These were $130 when initially released in November of 2019, but you'll have to check Stock X for up to date pricing.
Converse Golf le Fleur
This is just one in an entire collection of Converse One Stars that were created in collaboartion with the Rapper Tyler. These are two-tone with suede uppers and they bear the signature flower. It surrounds the Converse star logo. While they initially "dropped" on Converse.com, they're now also part of Stock X. When we last checked, they were sitting at $105.
Bose Frames Alto
If you're always telling him to take the earbuds out, then this gift is the ideal solution. Bose is behind the new innovation that's half sunglasses and half speaker. Eyes protected, ears protected, and he looks amazing! They're $199.95 on the Bose website and they come in a few different styles. Bose pay allows you to break into out into four installments as well.
Shoulder Bags and Fanny Packs
Fanny packs and shoulder bags are returning to fashion. You can find them in a brand name like Nike Adidas, Supreme, and Gucci. You can also shop for a variety of styles at various price points on Amazon. Our pick is $39.99 and ships free with Prime.
Teddy Fresh Color Block Hoodie
Rip N Dip is skateboarders speak that breaks down into "Rip = skate a spot" 'n "Dip = leave before the cops come." It's also the name of a clothing company that veers away from the norm with some offbeat designs. Rip N Dip clothing can be purchased at Zumiez. While this hoodie isn't going to appeal to everyone. It's the ideal item for kids that are fans of the line. Zumiez has this particular item in Small to XL for $84.95.
Save Our Planet X Vans Sk8 High
These Vans are ideal for skaters. But you don't need to be one to look stylish. Vans are wildly popular, and our gift guide for teen boys would be lacking without a mention. But this black and white version, which retails for $80 on the Vans website, take things to a whole new level!
Team Trees Hoodie
A Team Trees Hoodie is fashion with a cause. Not only is the hoodie stylish, but it supports the endeavor to plant 20 million trees by 2020. Team Trees was started by You Tuber Mr. Beast in collaboration with others including the Arbor Day Foundation. All of the proceeds from this $50 sweatshirt will go toward the $20 million needed to meet the goal.
Basics from Tsuki
Felix Kjellberg (aka Pewdiepie) and his wife Marzia are the driving force behind Tsuki Market. The unisex clothing line is limited but covers the basics of tees, hats, and sweatshirts. There are lower priced items available on the site, but our pick is the oversized sweatshirt for $100. As this is a gift guide for teen boys, we had to include this one, as "he'll" probably know all about Pewdiepie.
