Puzzle Gifts for 13-14 Year Old Boys

On this page you’ll find fun puzzles suitable for 13 and 14 year old boys, ranging from 3-D puzzles (like the traditional Rubik’s cube) to 2-D puzzles, including jigsaw puzzles with great pictures for a 13 or 14 year old. Not all boys are into sports. But many boys need to be actively doing something even if just with their hands. My son is one of those boys. A puzzle type gift will give them something to fiddle with, and at the same time get them thinking.
