NFL Game Day is ideal for kids who love football and it does not matter what team they support as this game features all 32 NFL teams.
While based on football this is a strategy game where the idea is to get your team all the way down the field. You do this by developing a strategy, a strategy that involves offense cards, defense cards, a dice and some special cards as well.
This is the kind of game that looks like you need a Stephen Hawking style IQ to figure out, but it is surprisingly simple and even if you are not huge into football, you will still be able to have fun playing this with your kid. This is honestly a game your family will have a lot of fun with.
Hathaway Foosball Table
You really cannot go wrong with foosball and when it comes to Hathaway Foosball Tables this is one of the coolest we’ve ever seen.
At 4 feet high it is the perfect size for not just them, but the whole family. The legs are super strong and will not buckle even when dad leans on it! Steel rods with solid, but comfortable rubber grips control the players with real precision and when they score, the ball simply returns to the area behind the goal.
We are very impressed with how well made this is and the fancy graphics and awesome artwork on the pitch makes it look like something you would find in an arcade. This is not just fun for your 13 year old, but something cool the whole family can enjoy.

This is another gift that was high on the list. Star Wars is hot and there’s lots of cool stuff to be found. Like app controlled droids and almost life size action figures.
The cool Star Wars stuff on this page is just a tiny selection, we could easily have filled an entire page with Star Wars gifts. Maybe that’s a good idea for our next item.
Star Wars Millennium Falcon Bluetooth Speaker
The Star Wars Millennium Falcon Bluetooth Speaker is the speaker you are looking for! Sorry we were trying our Jedi mind tricks on you.
Anyway this is a fantastic Bluetooth speaker that can connect to any kind of iOS or Android device. It is shaped like the Millennium Falcon and we really love how the actual speakers are made to look like they are part of the ship. This can pick up a device from as much as 30 feet away! Not only is the sound quality of this speaker very impressive but the back of it also lights up when it is in use.
Your kid can even use this as a speakerphone which we are sure they’ll find really cool. This is currently being sold at a very fair price so if you know a child or someone else who is a Star Wars fan they’ll go wilder than a Wookiee for this.
Awesome Outdoor Toys

From Techno to House, Trance to all other electronic music genres the Akai can do it all. It has keys, but it also has drum pads and all kinds of other cool sound effects.
In fact this is a drum computer combined with a synthesizer that can be controlled via your computer. From here with the included software different sounds and effects can be loaded to the instrument.

We think the orange color is cool, but it is also available in gold, silver, and black. This is something they are going to get a ton of use out of.
Nerf Lazer Tag Phoenix LTX Tagger – 2 Pack
Kids love to have Nerf wars, but one of the worst things is the picking up of all the Nerf darts! Even days after the war you find Nerf darts in all kinds of places over your house and yard.
Well the Nerf Lazer Tag Phoenix LTX Tagger 2-Pack does away with the darts as they will be shooting lasers at each other. Not real lasers like you see in Star Trek. But infrared lasers that will cause lights, sounds and even vibrations to happen to the other player who is shot. Kids are going to just love these and as they are officially Nerf branded they will be willing to give them a real chance, even though they do not have the standard Nerf darts.
These guns require 6 AA batteries each and boy do these eat batteries! We recommend buying a few sets of rechargeable batteries so you always have a set on standby.

When it comes to gifts for 13 year old boys that are cool, fashionable and also very practical. You really cannot go wrong with this Adidas Stadium Team Backpack.
With the Adidas logo front and center, your child is going to think this backpack looks very cool. It is made from very strong material and has a large main compartment.

This Bluetooth Beanie Hat is one of the better Christmas gift ideas for 13 year old boys. It looks very stylish and it’s is also very comfortable for them to wear.
Your kid is going to look really cool in this, but making them look awesome is not all this hat does. By the magic of Bluetooth, they can connect this to their phone, iPod, MP3 Player or whatever and then use the internal speakers to blast music right into their ears!
This even works as a speaker so they can talk hands free which is a great and practical feature of this Bluetooth beanie hat. The Bluetooth in this hat can pick up a signal from up to 30 feet away which is very impressive.
With 45 different designs and the fact you can throw it in the washing machine when it gets a little ripe, this Bluetooth beanie hat is one of the better gift ideas for 13 year old boys.
The Manual to Manhood
We know that most 13 year old boys are “too cool” to read a book, but The Manual to Manhood is something that they are going to actually really like. This is a book that has some fantastic tips that will help any young man. Tips like, how to talk to girls, how to change a tire, cook a steak, throw a football, behave a traffic stop and many more great tips!
What we love about this book is that it can be taken two ways. One is that your child will read this and actually take some of these tips to heart which is great. The other is that they will read this book and just get a real good chuckle out of it. Many people swear by this book, but we think a big part of its charm is that you do not know if it is serious or if some of the tips are a little tongue in cheek!
In conclusion we hope to have given you some useful gift ideas for 13 year old boys.
