    What about a game to play with the switch? My 15yr DS (TODAY IS HIS BIRTHDAY) is getting a Switch and Super Mario Odyssey and Legend of Zelda of Zelda Breath of Wind games. My nephew is getting Splatoon2

    Here are some other games he got for his birthday or will get for Christmas:

    Pandemic

    Carcassonne

    Santorini

    We had a game night for his family birthday party and played Codenames and Sabutuer

    I've played most of those games- they're great!

    My teen is getting a Machi Koro expansion, a laptop, and a laser tag set to share with his brother. Clearly, all the $ went to the laptop so not a big list to share. We have a Switch too and Super Mario Odyssey and Zelda are hits.

    Does he have a laptop? Photo editing software?

    A magazine subscription.

    A Nintendo gift card (for the Switch).

    DS1 is 14 and mostly wants PS4 video games and a few anime items. I also got him a stand that holds his video games and also charges his controllers.

    For my 15 yo nephew, I got a ps4 controller stand/charger, a new ps4 game and Game of Phones. And gift receipts to target so he can return it all, lol.

    If he's a serious gamer, he may want the pro-controller for the Switch. It's $61 right now on amazon.

    Is there anything else he's into? My DS1 (14) is getting upgraded computer parts, some backpacking items, a canoe paddle (needs it for an upcoming Scout trip), new phone charger/case, beanie, and a new hoodie. He's also getting a VR headset (one of the cheaper phone ones) and some bike supplies (tool kit, water cage and bottle, etc.) from grandparents. He also likes Google Play cards and Steam gift cards for his online gaming.

    If anyone has any good book selections for teen boys, I would love to hear it though - he hasn't been reading much, and isn't much into the fantasy type books that have been mentioned lately.

    Mine are 13.5 and almost 15. Xbox games, clothes, sneakers, hockey cards --what they asked for. It seems so boring for me and DH
    Also some hockey stat books, mini drone race set, sports equipment, season tix to local water park.
