Default Christmas Card for teen boy?

I think this is a tough one for a lot of us. Masculine cards are hard enough but teenage cards are nearly impossible. Add Christmas, masculine and teen together and I am pulling my hair out. I have done "guitar" cards for the past two years so I need some new ideas. Is there someone out there with a bit of imagination to help with this dilemma? Thanks!

A pun card? I've made a Christmas card for my niece that is a sea scene because it is a "Christmas Cod"

I'm sending my eldest at university a card of a "HO" to the 3rd power cut in a circle with a Santa hat on it. It is graphic, fun and references all this math classes.

I've made another card for my BIL/SIL that has "HO" "HO" "HO" on the front of it. It is pretty unisex.

Snowman card. There are some fun ones in the gallery - There is even one that seems to be from the top looking down and it is nested circles...

Thank you for the ideas Kristen. I think any teenager would love the "pun" cards! And I'm sure mine would appreciate the "HO" to the 3rd power card too...math is his most dreaded subject!

Money. Plain brown wrapper will do fine.




Ok, to be (more) serious. Take a cut-out of their face and plunk it on anything: car, cow, rocket, etc. It's a teenager's favorite subject.

I love Mo Mannings images - I used the video boy for my nephew last Christmas and he loved it. Find them here Kids - 4 Teenz Only - Mo's Digital Pencil

Wow, I didn't realize Mo Manning had images for teens. They are perfect for so many occasions. Thanks! Now if I could only color the images as good as they look...
