A lot of the presents on this list are good for all age teenagers, but there are a few that are more geared toward those just coming out of their tween stage.

Cool Presents for Teenage Guys (Editor’s Top Picks)

Here are my top 5 gifts for teenage guys in 2018.

1. Drone

A drone is a great gift for a teen boy. There are actually three that I would recommend depending on your budget. The cheapest is the parrot mambo. It’s a cool minidrone with a cannon on it. It is also equipped with a 0.3 megapixel camera and can do stunts like 360 degree flips. Read more about it just by clicking on the image. The second drone I would recommend shoots full HD video. It’s under $400 dollars, which isn’t too bad considering the amount of technology packed into it. It’s made by DJI, which is one of the best drone brands. Teenagers are driving or about to drive, so you don’t have to worry about a drone being too high tech for them.

2. Portable Waterproof Speaker

A portable speaker is another safe home run gift idea. Almost everyone likes to listen to music, but not a lot of people actually have a portable outdoor speaker that they can take with them. The JBL speaker I recommend on the list can be fully submerged in water without having to worry about water damage. If you’re looking for a one of those safe presents for teenage guys this one is a no brainer.

3. Travel Fishing Rod

If the teen you’re buying for is the outdoorsy type a portable fishing rod will be great. There are actually two on this list and I personally have tried them both. The pocket fisherman is great, and there is also a collapsible telescopic rod, which is named travel fishing set on the list. That is the one I would recommend. Also take a look at our full list of fishing gifts, there might be another awesome gift you can pair with it.

4. Headphones

Headphones can be a little expensive depending on which model you pick. The ones I recommend are either beats or base. Both the models I recommend are the best ones out there. If there are list out of your budget you can find a lot of cheaper models made by the same companies that will be just fine.

5. Awesome Nerf Gun

Now a nerf gun might not sound like such a great gift for a teen boy, but you have to remember Nerf guns in 2018 are not the nerf guns of the past. The one on this list shoots 70 miles per hour! If you need a gift for a teenage guy that likes to play paintball or airsoft this nerf rifle will be great gift.
