It’s next to impossible to know what’s going on in your teen’s head, and it’s just as hard to find the right Christmas gift. Fortunately, you don’t need to give in to the temptation to grab a gift card or some cash and call it a day. Here are four gift ideas teens are sure to love.
A Mobile Printer
The name may make this sound a bit like an office supply, but this is actually a printer that your teen can use with their smartphone to instantly bring their latest pics to life. Considering how popular Instagram is among teens, they obviously like taking pictures, which makes a gadget that lets them create their own traditional photos a fun choice.
Live experiences are always a great gift choice. Instead of getting your teen something they may or may not ever use, you can get them tickets to something they’ll remember for the rest of their lives. With a little brainstorming on what your teen likes, you should be able to find a live event in your area that would pique their interest, whether that’s a sports game, a concert or something entirely different.
Pop Culture Swag
Teens are huge consumers of pop culture, and just about all of them are fans of at least one celebrity. There’s all kind of gear related to pop culture that you can get for your teen, depending on what you think they’d like. Whether it be a Goku and Nimbus Hoodie or Iron Man socks, pop culture clothing and accessories are both usually a hit. Toys can also be a good choice.
Even though teens usually like to make their own decisions when it comes to fashion, shoes are expensive, and if you do your homework, you can pick shoes that fit their style. Sneakers are a popular choice for boys of all ages, as long as you go with the right brands. Most girls also like wearing sneakers, but if yours likes to dress up, you may want to opt for heels.
Don’t let yourself get too stressed out trying to figure out the right gifts to buy your teen this Christmas. All it really takes is considering what they’re interested in and their hobbies. Of course, if you’re stuck, you can always just ask them to give you some ideas. Use these tips as a starting point to launch your Christmas shopping for your teen.
