My BFF and his partner are adopting a 14 year old son. He’ll be moving in next month.
I’m sharing this to 1) share the good news 2) ask for advice on an appropriate present.
What should I get someone who’s about to be a parent of a teenaged boy?
Anyone out there have teenagers and suggestions???

I have teens and I would consider having an ipod Engraved on the mac website with his date of adoption. You will be the way cool aunt/friend. And be there for your friend as 14 y/o boys are a lot of work!

Wow, that’s jumping head first into parenting.
Is there an activity you can see him doing with his son that you could get him a gift for that?

I agree with troubled. Do you think they may enjoy going to a ball game together? You could always buy tickets.

I love the sports ticket idea.

I think the activity is a great idea! I think doing something physical together, like rock climbing or water rafting or something would be a whole lot of fun! Unfortunately, this isn’t for everyone, so maybe like a gift card to an activity center or soemthing like that?
Again, congrats to your friend!
