It’s nearly that time of year again and for those with teenaged or college aged sons, conjuring up some great stocking stuffer ideas can often be pretty hard work. It can seem that all your teenage son wants to do is play video games, but we have a bunch of great stocking stuffer ideas for teenage & college-age boys with some practical ideas, fun choices, and some that everyone in the family is sure to enjoy.
The teen years can be tricky, as a teenager at the age of 13 is obviously a million years removed from a teenager at the age of 19, despite there only being 6 years in between. This is the most formative time in anyone’s life, rife with all sorts of changes, so it can be a typically difficult age range to try and shop for, be that at Christmas or any other time. It’s also a time where, without trying to be mean, your son can perhaps start to get a tad lazy or bone idle, and perhaps may need some help with finding practical things that they may not think to consider for themselves, especially if they’re soon to be off to college.
So with all this in mind, we present here to you some of what we think to be the best stocking stuffer ideas for teenage & college-age boys.
Bungee Cords for Teenage Boys
Bungee cords can be used for all sorts of surprising practical uses, so everyone should have some laying around somewhere. You’ll notice that a few items ahead in this article will be great for those teenaged boys who are into adventure and enjoy going on camping trips. Well, no camping trip is complete without some bungee cords.

Earbuds for Teenage Boys
One unfortunate factor of today’s world is the over-reliance on cheap earbuds that break all the time. But the optimal word in that sentence is cheap, so that’s at least a good thing, and no doubt that by the time Christmas rolls around your teenager is going to need to replace the pair that they got last year. Thanks to their small size, nothing is going to fit into that stocking so perfectly.

Not just for the practicality of keeping them up, although that is obviously a bonus, but belts can add something of an air of sophistication, a little class, and something to break up the colors.

Credit Card Powerbank for Teen Boys
Our phones seem to be ever more hungry for power these days, often leaving us short while we’re out and about. But with the leaps and bounds that power banks have come in recent years, you can now get one for your teenage boy that’s no larger than a credit card, and will fit into any credit card slot in their wallet. In today’s world, especially considering how much we all know teenagers love to spend every second of every day on their phones, this is something of a lifesaver.

Video Games for Teenage Boys
What does any teenaged boy love more than anything else in the whole entire world, even more than their parents? You guessed it, video games. It’s perhaps a sad fact of life that 99.99% of all teenaged boys will be glued to their video games for the vast majority of their adolescence, but it is what it is. And while usually we would want to encourage them to perhaps play outside like in the good old days, well it is Christmas, and there’s nothing wrong with a bit of indulgence at Christmas. Is there anything better than video games as a stocking stuffer for teenaged and college aged boys at Christmas?
