    Many manufacturers do smaller versions of the main sizes - have a look at the What hardtail 2009 thread for some ideas.

    Usually I would recommend trying the bike, as one 14 is not the same as another - but I understand for Christmas this may not be possible. But I'd still measure his inside leg and make sure the models you are looking at have standover clearance.
