A subscription to Playboy Magazine.


So he can read the articles, of course.

A drone was what my son wanted at this age. A really GOOD drone, that flew well, and could take video, or transmit video. That within the budget?

I recently searched for gift ideas for my 12 year old son. For a teenager at this age, gadgets and various techniques are very interesting. I really liked the ideas on the website, read this article.

Cash or a gift card (Amazon is always good), unless you know something he is into (but that is riskier than cash or gift card). You can also ask his parents.

$200 is a whopping amount IMO.

A six month membership to the local indoor pistol range (if his parents object to pistols, then to the local indoor archery range).

.22 rifle, and enrollment in a Hunter Education course. If his father isn’t into shooting, take the class with the nephew (even if you’ve already done it, and especially if you haven’t). He’ll remember it for the rest of his life.

I absolutely agree that cash or a generic gift card is the way to go. I think people who think gift cards uncreative or even tacky are projecting what we, as adults, think is appropriate etiquette wise.

I have a 9 and a 12 year old. Cash or cash equivalent is what they want and it's the easiest for you. One exception I can think of is if the gift giver is willing to spend money on an experience that they and the kid do together.
