The Best Gift Ideas for 17 Year Old Boys


A your boy approaches adulthood, he is now getting some control of his emotions and is getting calmer than he was a few years back. However, teen guys of this age are still inexperienced in dealing with difficult situations or people.

Guys at 17 years old also have a much stable band of friends and usually, the friends he has at this age will be his friends when he enters adulthood and when he gets old.

If you have a boy who is going to celebrate his 17th birthday or you just have a 17 year old who you want to surprise, then take a look at this list of gift ideas for 17 year old boys.

Racing Drones He Can Play With His Buddies

Guys of this age have a huge interest in tech toys. Your young man is no different! You can get his a nice racing drone, which he can use to play with his best buds around town.

One racing drone I like is the Eachine Racer, which looks very cool and is very sturdy to boot! I have tested this and dropped it several times and is still working super well.

Toys like these will make him jump for joy!

Subscription to Men’s Health

Many teenage boys of this age are very health conscious. You can get him a year’s worth of subscription to Men’s Health which not only discusses physical health, but also mental, sexual and it also teaches life skills which your young man should learn.

Comfortable Hoodies are a Must

With all school, play and work, a wardrobe full of comfortable clothes is a must have! Get him a comfy hoodie to keep him warm when outside. Try to get the hoodies that look plain or have a nice mature design, as he already outgrew the colorful anime characters and tribal signs.

A Nice Pair of Pants Will Be Great!

You can also get him a nice pair of pants that will go with that hoodie you brought! Jeans are forever, but he probably has a lot of those already. Why not get him a nice pair of casual cargo pants? He will enjoy the loose and comfy fit of “six-pocket” pants.

A Pair of New Loafers

He has got his sneakers, his basketball shoes and his running shoes. Those are fine and dandy, but a young man needs more style than sport-oriented shoes. Get him a nice pair of loafers so he can mix and match his clothes better (for the ladies!).

Get Him a Nice, Classic Silver Watch

In tune with giving him adult clothes, you should also give him more mature fashion accessories. Add a bit of class into his wardrobe with a classic silver watch, which will go with almost any casual clothes. This will work well in conjunction to the loafers above. Both are dressy and casual at the same time.

This chronograph silver wristwatch from Voeons will look very nice on young men such as your teenage guy. It has that leather strap that makes it look not too dressy but still looks classically good at the same time.

A New High-End Laptop for Study and Play

I use the ASUS Zenbook right now and I am very satisfied with it’s performance. It can run most of the latest software and games plus, it is very suitable for mutitasking jobs.
