What would be a good gift for a teen (15year old) boy, non Jewish? (Just mentioning that for reference as a set of Seforim, etc. wouldn't go). I'd like to spend around $50-$70. Extra bonus if you can point to a Prime day sale item! I don't know all that much about his interests, so it should be mainstream enough. Thank you!

Why cant you just give him an Amazon gift card so he can get whatever he wants?

Dont really understand these threads. Id rather money than a gift I might not like

Due to the nature of the relationship I'd like to give an actual gift item, and not just a gift card.
Thank you for the suggestion, though.

You can never go wrong with an Amazon gift card. I think my son liked those more than cash for his bar mitzva gifts.

Oops sorry, I see I cross posted!
Hmm, most of the things my 15 year old son wants cost a lot more than that. Can you find out if he’s into a specific brand and get him a nice sweatshirt? I think my son would appreciate that.

Thanks for the idea. What brand would be "in" in his crowd?

Walmart had a $68 sale on a hoverboard today. Not sure if he has one yet but if not, at least my teens think it's the coolest thing.

Oh yes, this is also a great idea. For whichever gaming system he has. And just make sure it’s exchangeable.

The only thing my 15 year old is interested in right now is games for his Ninentedo.
Or a good quality pair of bluetooth earbuds.
