Game of Phones
This boy’s birthday gift combines two things that we frequently encourage families to do together - getting the kids off their phones and spending quality time together as a unit - but in a single package.
Participants in the scavenger hunt known as "Game of Phones" compete against the clock to see who can complete the challenges in the shortest amount of time. The challenges range from taking photos with different types of phones to answering questions about celebrities - talk about the various activities that’ll capture their attention! It's possible that the participant will be tasked with retrieving the most recent photo they took, coming up with a masterpiece using only emoji, or identifying the most peculiar image search result among a number of different alternatives. These actions are selected among teenagers’ behaviours, so at least a few of them will appeal to his taste!
This black bag has a great retro appearance that we really like. The use of padded suede is a beautiful accent, while the use of twin zippers ensures that the item is still functional.
A perfect boy’s birthday gift, it has a capacity of 17" for a laptop and includes a padded base for protection against bumps and falls. The backpack is composed of tough, water-resistant leather that is both durable and strong. Also, the liner is water resistant, keeping your kid’s belongings dry. For increased protection, the bottom has been thickly cushioned.
Your boy can carry your laptop and accessories with ease, protecting his back from irritation and encouraging optimum support. The bag has thick padded adjustable straps that are designed to relieve stress on his shoulders. It is also ideal for school, travel, hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities.
Choosing the perfect boy’s birthday gifts is a difficult chore, but it’s not impossible given your understanding about him. The truth is, whether you’re picking nan birthday gifts or grandad gifts, for example, you’ll still have to do a little bit of background research to know what they will like or dislike. Just because you’re not buying gifts for someone your age, doesn’t mean you can’t impress them!

We are confident that by giving him one of our suggestions, you will surprise him this year (and gain so much confidence in your gifting abilities, from selecting gifts for mum's birthday or daddy birthday gifts for a later time).
