The older my son gets, the more I struggle with coming up with the perfect holiday gift for him. While he always has shoes and school clothes on his wish list, for me finding a gift that actually surprises and excites him can be difficult. Any of you who have teen boys know that getting that holiday gift excitement out of them can be more than a little challenging. This year, as I put together my gift lists for every member of the family, I decided that I would include the perfect holiday gift for teens and surprise my son with a wall makeover that he could really get excited about!
To give you a little backstory, this year we moved my teen from his little kid bedroom upstairs to a larger apartment area downstairs. At fifteen years old and over six feet tall, he needed a bigger space. But ever since the move, he’s been struggling to make the area “his” (it was a guest area with somewhat feminine decor prior to his move). Since he’s admittedly crazy about anything and everything sports related, I’ve seen a sports theme emerge very quickly with his decor. However, there have been walls that have set blank, waiting for the perfect addition and recently I discovered that those blank spaces had been waiting for me to find the perfect Fathead for him! After only a few minutes on the Fathead site, I had a list of options that would all be a perfect holiday surprise and honestly, the hardest part was deciding on just the right one.
Now, before I show you what I chose to surprise my teen with and how it transformed one of his walls, I should explain what a Fathead is just in case you’re not familiar. Fathead wall decals are high-quality, crisp images that transform your space. Most Fathead decals are as easy to apply as peel-and-stick but you can also get transfer decals that rub on for some of the more intricate designs. From sports to Disney to entertainment to personalized options, there’s a Fathead decal for every interest! Since I already told you that my son is crazy about sports, I naturally went to the sports section to select my perfect holiday gift for teens. In just a few short minutes, I had found a Boston Celtics (my teen’s favorite team) wall decal that allowed me to customize it with his name. When it arrived just a few short days later, I knew it was the perfect way to transform his new living space and fill that blank wall that had been taunting us for quite some time!
After removing our Fathead wall decal from the tube it came in to keep it safe, it was so simple to decorate his blank wall. There were no tacks, nails or tape needed. Instead, we were able to simply peel off the back layer and stick it on his wall.
After securing the decal in place, we pulled the top adhesive off and were left with a perfect decoration that completed his space in a way that I don’t think anything else would have!
Needless to say, he was thrilled by his made in the USA Fathead wall decal and I loved that we hadn’t had to put holes in his wall to transform it with the perfect wall decal that thrilled my basketball loving boy.
After months of looking for the right item to put in this space, finding the perfect Fathead was just a reminder that when it comes to decorating, easy is best and Fathead is nothing if not easy!
For us, the Fathead wall decal was a perfect gift for teens and it was a great way to surprise my teen with a wall decal that I know he’ll enjoy for years to come. Now, every time he walks into his area, he’ll be greeted with a wall decal that thrills his sports loving heart and was the perfect holiday gift from his creative parents.
