For the teenage boy on the cusp of adulthood, there’s often a certain buzz in the air. It’s a time of new beginnings, past recollections, and the oncoming and very wide world of yet-to-be-explored adulthood. For those wanting to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime occasion with their teen, there are a number of great ways to pay homage to the moment with the perfect gift idea. In the celebratory spirit of your teenage boy’s own transition to adulthood, here are five great gift ideas with which to mark this jubilant time.
One of the most symbolic things we most commonly associate with the transition to manhood is the newfound need to shave. It’s also one of the most widely welcomed concepts of that age group – a sort of rite of passage to many. By gifting them a quality shave kit, you pay an acknowledging nod to their adulthood as well as give a useful gift they’re sure to appreciate for some time to come.
For many at this age, it’s all about style and presentation. To help them get up to date on being fashionably forward, consider an apparel upgrade as their coming-of-age gift. A new, sleek wallet, a stylish belt, hat, and even some apparel from companies like Over Under Clothing would be an upgrade for your young man.
Many at this age are eagerly on their way out to live on their own. This is a fantastic form of initiative on their part that certainly deserves acknowledgement. To help in this area as well as commemorate their turning of age, consider helping them with the purchase of some much needed home-warming items. From furniture and electronics on down to dishes and that all-important can-opener, the often vast list of things needed when first moving out calls for assistance in any shape available.
Gift cards aren’t typically considered to be the most personal or unique of gifts. However, to a young man or late teen, such a card can truly be like having a handful of gold. You can consider purchasing a gift card aimed at their particular interests or hobbies or consider one for the more utilitarian use – a car rental, car repair services, a prepaid credit card for emergencies, food, clothing, or anything else of reassuring practicality.
Finally, for those wanting to pay homage to this time in the most personalized of ways, it’s hard to beat personalized gifts and memorabilia. No written piece could take the place of your personal knowledge and memories of your teen. However, we can suggest lovingly representing these personalized meanings and memories in the form of engraved personal items, plaques, personalized challenge coins, or even the commemorative naming of things like stars, places, and functions. These can all go on to convey a lifetime of precious meaning.
For the teen just entering manhood, it’s an exciting entry to a whole new world. As their parent, paying some caring acknowledgement here is certainly a supportive and wonderfully appreciated thing to do. If this describes your present or upcoming situation, these five gift ideas can really do the job right.
