As a mother of a very vocal tween boy, I know what the tweens want most. Popular gift ideas for a teenage boy, age 12 - 15 include:

VIDEO GAMES
Splatoon – Availlable for WiiU. Splatter enemies and claim your turf as ink-spraying, squid-like Inklings in Nintendo's ultimate mess-fest! Challenge players online* in chaotic 4-on-4 turf wars and unleash squid powers to ink your way to victory. May the best mess win.
Disney Infinity Star Wars Saga Bundle for the Playstation 3 & 4
GAMES & Puzzles
Pie Face - Hilarious Pie Face game might just splat you in the face
Gravity Maze We love games that are as fun for kids as they are for parents! The towers in this game can be arranged in a variety of structures but, for each challenge, you'll have to to build a path that will carry your marble to its target. This game is just as fun for a single player as it is for small groups.
BOOKS
Secret Garden Artist's Edition: 20 Drawings to Color and Frame. Rated one of the Best Books of the Month on Amazon.com
The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Discovery Book: A Beginner's Guide to Building and Programming Robots LEGO MINDSTORMS has changed the way we think about robotics by making it possible for anyone to build real, working robots. The latest MINDSTORMS set, EV3, is more powerful than ever, and The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Discovery Book is the complete, beginner-friendly guide you need to get started.

Thrift shopping can be fun WITH the kids!

I taught my children at young ages what logos on clothing to look for at thrift stores. The kids would select a rack and I would go down the other side right next to them. At that age, they were content shopping with (for?) me knowing that I would treat them to lunch afterwards for their efforts. While going through the clothing rack, my son picked up a shirt and put it in the cart. Jokingly, I said, "Good job, buddy! You've earned lunch." He continued down the same rack and came back to me with two more of the same shirt in different colors. He place them in the cart and said "this one is dinner, and this is dessert".

My son would hang the shirts he found in the back of his collar so he would have both arms free.

Vintage Pendleton sweater catches my eye

I normally do not specifically seek heavy knit sweaters while out thrift store shopping (thrifting), but I knew there was something a little different about this sweater. I purchased it for $4 at a local thrift store and after a little research, realized it was Cowichan Pendleton sweater similar to the one Jeff Bridges wore in the classic movie, The Big Lebowski. These sweaters can fetch a pretty penny on eBay! See the completed eBay search results below:

Recommended postal scale from an experienced eBay seller

I have been selling on eBay for over 10 years having sold over 10,000 items worldwide. I print and ship all of my packages from my home office using a highly reliable postal scale from Weighmax. The scale weighs packages up to 75 pounds – it is small, convenient and fairly inexpensive. The postal clerks love me as the weight of my packages is always right on the money!

If you are looking to sell on eBay or simply in the market for a new postal scale, I highly recommend the Weighmax Capacity Postal Shipping Scale, Battery and AC Adapter Included, Gray (W-2822-75-GRAY)
