Gotcha Covered Notebooks come in dozens of cover designs. Tween and teen boys can show off their interests or personality by using a notebook that reflects those interests. Plus, each cover can be personalized with a name and type of paper. For younger kids, wide ruled notebooks are great for school, while college-ruled is great for older teens. If you know an artistic guy then you can even have the notebook pages made as sketch pages instead of a regular notebook.

BoJerky is a premium beef jerky subscription box. Jerky is sourced from the US and is available in a few sizes. The regular size includes 2 packs of jerky per box and costs $21 for a single month (or price is reduced if you subscribe for 3+ months). There is also a double-subscription available which includes 4 bags per box, or a single flavor subscription which is just one bag. This is a great gift for any boy who enjoys jerky or who needs a high protein-diet such as boys in sports. It’s also a fun way to support indie jerky makers and find new varieties that you love.

BoCandy is a sibling company to Bojerky (mentioned above). BoCandy is a subscription box for international candy. I have a teenage niece who watches unboxing videos of youtubers trying out foreign snacks that were sent to them by foreign viewers. Of course, most of us don’t know people in other countries so we can’t have them send us foreign treats to try out. However, subscribing to BoCandy will get you foreign snacks and treats to try out. Boxes start at just $11 a month and would be a great gift or you could subscribe in advance and then use the treats inside as a stocking stuffer for your teen.
