My grandmother gets me a new pair of Victorias Secret flannel PJs plus slippers every year, so I really look forward to that – they are so comfy! Fiance hates them and says I look like an old lady haha, but sorry, it’s COLD in Boston and we keep our thermostat at 55 because we refuse to waste money on heat. So there’s mine ๐Ÿ™‚ And I always get Fiance a big box of dried apricots because he is obsessed with them, and they are usually gone very very quickly! So I guess my gifts doesn’t really help since PJs/socks/etc are pretty standard.. but maybe some type of food or candy? My brother usually gets gift cards to the movies or DVDs every year. He’s not a reader, but I imagine some people might like books or magazine subscriptions. Good luck finding underwear replacements haha

I get a gloves/hat/scarf set from someone every year. That I never end up using.

I’ve always gotten at least one new book every year.  I personally think that would be a great present for teen boys!

My Mom gets all of us kids, our spouses and our kids matching PJ’s and we get them on Christmas Eve, so when we wake up on Christmas Day we are all kinds of adorable “Pottery Barn” catalog picture worthy.

The rest of my family picks things off of my Kohl’s registry since I’m the first one to move out and have my own place, I randomly find that I need weird things for the apartment and it’s way easier than trying to return something.

My brother enoys:

Itunes credit,gift cards for their favorite video game console (Wii, Xbox, etc), New games for said consoles and/or If they drive and pay for their own gas, maybe a gas card? (I super enjoyed that when I was in college)

I imagine that food, video games, music and gas money are pretty universal teenage boy needs.

Every year I add a Swarovski crystal figurine to my collection….but chances are your boys might not be itching for a miniature crystal butterfly.  The other thing we always get without fail is clementines (the fruit) in our stockings….sorry I’m not help at all today! 

Ps – “I have enough throws to cover most of the state in my house right now” hehehe thanks for the morning giggle.

@tksjewelry: “You know, If you put the word “anime” in front of crystal butterfly, my son would LOVE it, LOL.”

 

HILARIOUS! You’ve given me my morning giggle.

In my family we don’t do a “one thing every year” type of present, but my FI’s family has been giving all the kids (my Fiance included) a Hess truck every year. The older “kids” have quite a collection now!
