This post: Stocking stuffer ideas for teenage guys (stuff they’ll actually like but won’t tell you they want).
I admit it: buying for the guys is my biggest gifting challenge at the holidays. Teenage boys can feel especially hard to buy for, because they don’t always tell us what they want!
I’m a boy mom + the 30 stocking stuffer ideas in this guide are inspired by my three sons. If you’re looking for dude-approved stocking stuffer ideas for teenage boys (+ their little brothers), you’re in luck!

Pro Mom Tips for Stuffing Your Boy’s Stocking (Without Breaking the Bank)
Buying stocking stuffers for girls is different than buying for boys. For starters, girls will actually tell you what they want. And whoever said that boys don’t have expensive taste probably didn’t live in the 21st century!
Here are my best tips for filling the dude’s stockings with stuff you can actually afford:
Go ahead + ask!
It’s worth a shot, right? I’ll even give you a printable wish list to give to your man cub.
What does your son talk about? Listen to? Watch? Eat? Those are all clues! A lot of what I included in this shopping guide are ideas based on simply observing my sons’ habits.
Earn cash back.
Think $5 or less.
I splurge on a few higher priced items, but most of what goes into my kids’ stockings costs $5 or less. Keep that in mind as you’re browsing my stocking stuffer shopping guide- I don’t buy everything on the list!
Buy in bulk + split it.
If you’re buying for more than one guy, this works out so well! Buy a pack of mini flashlights, and slip one (or two) into each boys’ stocking (girls will like them, too). A 3-pack of Man Bars from the San Francisco Soap Company is another great pack to split (think: husband, dad, etc).
Reuse stockings every year.
This may seem like a no brainer, but it definitely cuts out extra spending. And kids look forward to seeing “their” stocking every year at Christmas time. (If you need a little something to personalize your stockings, check out these cute wooden name tags.)
