Smile Stocking Stuffer Ideas for teen boys

I am having a hard time this year coming up with stocking stuffer ideas for a 12 and almost 16 year old boy. Anyone have any fun ideas?

Office Max sells jump drives (flash drives) that look like a Burton snowboard if your guys are interested in snowboarding at all. I will get one of those, some crazy boxers for sleeping, some Chapstick, candy...

iTunes gift cards...if they are into snowboarding then maybe an IOU for a lift ticket....or stickers (they put the stickers on the boards - not sure why but it's apparently the thing to do). Any accessory item to sports they may play - batting gloves, wrist bands whatever; re-useable water bottle; mechanical pencils (no matter how many you bought them at the beginning of the year - they are mostly lost now). I'll keep thinking since I need to be getting on that anyway!

sounds weird but socks. My son goes through socks like you would not believe. Can never get enough and it really bugs me to keep having to buy them. I have told him if he keeps losing or leaving that many socks out for the dog to chew or whatever, that he will have to start buying his own. So he would probably be thrilled with socks! Also AA and AAA batteries. They all have something that uses them up.

A few of these already mentioned like the iTunes card.

Starbucks gift card
A new wallet (and a $5 bill inside for good luck)
If they need a larger memory stick for their cellphone
If they have glasses or contacts a new carrier/holder for those that is cool
Gift card to the movies
Gift card to their favorite restaurants
Gift card to places they like to shop (American Eagle, Holister, Abercrombie, etc)
If the 16 year old has a car something for that. Some stuff to wash it and clean it, gift card to one of the auto stores, etc

On the less expensive side - gum and other snack items; a Christmas ornament that reflects a recent milestone or accomplishment. If he has a newly acquired DL then maybe a keychain with his own key to the family car;

I am not sure how you feel about it, but we always throw in a couple 1.00 lottery tickets. ( Yes, I know you have to be 18.)
