Are you struggling for ideas for gifts for 14 year old boys?

Are you in a quandary over gifts for 14 year old boys? Do they just say they want money? Or do their parents suggest that to you as they are out of ideas too?

Does it seem that all they are interested in is tech and that unless you have the funds for a new iPhone or the best ever headphones here really is just nothing to buy them in terms of gifts?

Well think again.

I am not a fan of just shoving money in a card and I simply adore giving surprises and having a pressie to hand over.

If you struggle for gift ideas for this age group worry no more.

I actually have loads of ideas for this age group and there are truly are some brilliant gifts for 14 years old boys for every budget.

I have 5 nephews and a son of my own all in their teens so you can trust I know what I’m talking about here! I have bought plenty of gifts for 14 year old boys in my time. Plus I have been over at WICKED UNCLE who sell a really interesting range of gifts for 14 year old boys to bring you some ace ideas.


Gifts for 14 year old boys

Here you are – a range of awesome ideas for gifts for 14 year old boys that range in price and in interest. You will definitely hit the spot with one of these.


Hydraulic robot arm

I think this hydraulic robot arm looks just absolutely fabulous. Kids get to make it and use it – and through assembling the pieces they get to really see how hydraulic power works.  Lots of process fun and they will be so proud of their creation.

Once made they are able to use it to grab onto and lift objects that weigh up to 50g with the gripper or switch to the sucker cup attachment to lift items with smooth surfaces.

A great educational toy that just feels like the best fun too. ( Don’t you just love a good educational toy in disguise. An adults dream.)

Grow it bonsai trees  – unusual but timeless gifts for 14 year old boys

At 14 boys probably they may be well past growing cress and sunflowers but they may find this rather more sophisticated gardening project really cool.

Bonsai trees take love and dedication and it is something they will keep for many, many years. Such a rewarding gift and one that could last a lifetime.  I think this Grow it bonsai tree kit could be a very big hit with the any child.

The kit has absolutely everything that you need and contains growing pots made from coconut husk, compost discs which expand when watered, four packets of seeds and a booklet containing growing tips.

Gardening of any kind has so many mental health benefits too, it is relaxing and absorbing and creative. You may just give them an interest that will  be both fun and great for them now and in the long term.



We have long been fans of Mancala in our home and I think it makes the BEST gift idea for well..just about anyone. It’s quick to learn and simple ( yet tricky too) and play lasts around 5 minutes.

It is perfect to take away on holiday, the whole family can join in and it is a bit addictive.







Colour changing mood lights – perfect gifts for 14 year old boys

The teen years bring with them a bit of angst (okay a lot of angst) and many teens find themselves spending a lot of time in their bedroom, chilling on their own. listening to music, talking to friends or perhaps writing their journal. They may also spend a lot of time in bed thinking and daydreaming. So how about a gift that acknowledges that?

What could be more relaxing than a colour changing mood light?

It’s very cool and rather funky and mesmerisingly calming. This one even twists like a tornado!

Isn’t it funky.


Chocolate eyeballs – the best of gifts for 14 year old boys

Because every 14 year old boy is still really (no matter what they say) a little boy at heart,  this is the best of these gifts for 14 year old boys in my opinion.

Who wouldn’t want to bite into a large gooey eyeball that is made of chocolate and that oozes blood (strawberry sauce.)


I would rather like some of these myself!
