My 14 year old cousin has decided that he is a full grown adult and doesn't want anything childish for Christmas, all he is telling people that he wants is an Nintendo DS! Well I love him, but I am not buying him a $150.00 game system.  He use to collect WWE action figures, but like I said he says that he is an adult and they don't get such things..LOL! So what do you get a 14 year old boy!

I don't think he's being greedy, I think he doesn't want to be treated like a little kid. He's hit puberty so he wants to be more of a man than a boy : )

Maybe you can see if anyone else is getting him a NDS and if they are you can get him a game. Also maybe cologne or anything else you might get a grown man. A gift card is always a good idea, then he can get something he wants.

I am getting my son an acoustic/electric guitar for Christmas. He will be 14yo in January. It is $60 on ebay.

Cash would probably be the safest bet.  At least that is what I would do.

A gift card to a store that specializes in something that interests him

i.e. A gaming store, sports store, or skateboard shop

Get him a gift card to GameStop/EB Games. It is the same store but is called different names sometimes. My son is always thrilled to get a gift card for this store. He can add it to his own savings to get a new game he wants.

good luck
