Exclamation FE Gifts?

I'm going on a cruise in August on the Disney Fantasy and my family has signed up for the FE exchange.
I have been thinking so hard about what to do for the teens (as that is who I am in charge of) but have come up with only gifts for the girls.

What should I do for the teen boys? Please nothing from the dollar store, I want my gifts to be memorable. And I really don't want to have to resort to candy, as I find it a really boring gift.

Thank you!

Not really sure of your budget, but some things to consider could be:

pirate themed items for the PITC night, refillable drink/sports bottles, or ear buds. HTH!

Paracord bracelets. Key fobs if they are of driving age.

For our FE gifts to teen boys, we did nice sport water bottles. We drove, so we had the room, we'd have to think twice about it if we flew. My DS18 got some great FE gifts, he loved a personalized flask (lol), paracord bracelet, earphones, I know there's more, I just can't think of them right now. He even loved the personalized magnets with his favorite character.
My kids loved getting trading pins too, as they love to pin trade.
DS was appreciative of everything we got, so don't stress too much! The fun is in the delivering and receiving surprises.

I ordered silicon wrist bands with the cruise info on them.

They were less than 50 cents each.

You can't miss my DH. He's a big burly USMC redneck w/ a fanny pack and acting like a kid who can't wait for the next ride at WDW.

Book marks, key fobs, silicone wristbands

Please, no Axe spray. There are too many of us that are very sensitive to perfumes.

Ear buds are a great idea. Teens seem to lose or break them weekly.

great ideas!

I love all of the suggestions. I never thought of pins as FE gifts. Where would you get them? Online from disneystore? Do you break up a set or do individual ones? Do you wait to find out everyones favorite character or just buy here and there?
