Most 13 year olds are into video games. My daughter is really into Super Mario Bros. so we actually had her party at a go-kart racing venue with laser tag, rides & arcades, bought Mario Go-Kart toppers for her cake, had gold coin chocolates, "yoshi eggs" (the kids had fun guessing each jelly bean flavor!), rice krispie treats decorated like the blocks from the game, and other treats following this theme, along with the usual pizza and drinks. If the venue's not in your budget, just have a video game tournament at your house and serve food related to your kid's favorite video game. Here's another idea: set up camping tents in your backyard, have them watch scary movies, comic book themed movies (Amazing Spiderman, The Avengers, Dark Knight), cult classics (The Goonies, Better Off Dead, Ferris Bueller's Day Off), or whatever movies your kid likes. Serve popcorn, burgers, hotdogs, nachos, s'mores, trail mix, and other camp treats. If you have a pool, just have a pool party -- perfect for a summer birthday! You can also have a picnic at the park and have the kids play flag football, baseball, or soccer. Big plus is you don't have a huge mess to clean up at your house. It really depends on what your 13 yr old is interested in...

Well your boy is going to enter in his teens,and also it is likely that he will have fun with his friends.If you want some wonderful themes then I would suggest you some themes like Army,spider man,cow boy and lots more.Such age group boys would love to have fun and party in a fantasy environment.Here is a link,I think you can get all and everything you are looking for.
