Let’s face it: Finding gifts for teens is hard. Especially in this day and age, with so many things coming out at a fast pace, it’s hard to keep up. That’s why I’ve narrowed down the perfect gifts for teens to a list of 10 items. There’s definitely a gift idea in here somewhere that a teen you’re shopping for is going to love, so keep reading!
1. Extreme Room Makeover
A room makeover can be the perfect gift for a teen! It can work for either a boy or a girl and they’re guaranteed to love it. As a teen, they’re transitioning into different interests and likes and this means their room is probably starting to feel a little childish to them. Surprise them by revamping their room. Make sure to keep it trendy and try incorporating their likes and interests to add a personal touch.
2. Alexa, Play Thank U (Next)
Teens love to stay up to date with technology trends, so chances are they know what Alexa is. Also probable is that they’ll love this as a gift. It’s something that’s convenient and useful and they’ll definitely be thanking you for buying them this gift!
3. Concert Tickets
What teen wouldn’t love some concert tickets as a gift? Surprise them by getting them tickets to see their favourite band and you’ll be their favourite person forever. At least until they see their favourite band in person. Then that’s all they’ll talk about for days and weeks and months and…I’ve been through this, can you tell?
4. Portable Bluetooth Speakers
Everyone listens to music, but what is it about teens that makes them want to blast their music? Is it because they genuinely enjoy it that much or do they just want everyone to hear the latest obnoxious song they’re obsessed with? Whatever the case may be, a portable bluetooth speaker would make the perfect gift for a music-loving teen. They can take these on the go with them as well, so that next sleepover is about to be lit.
These days, technology is all the rage. Wow I sound old when I say it like that. No but really, buying a laptop for a teen is like buying them the greatest thing to exist on earth ever (did someone say nutella?) Laptops are often needed these days for school purposes anyways so is it really a gift or is it a necessity for school? I’ll let you decide.
6. A Guitar
If then teen you’re looking to buy a gift for is constantly complaining of the boredom that seems to be consuming them, buy them an instrument. Something that’s easy for beginners, like an acoustic guitar, would be perfect!
7. Designer Kicks
If you have a teen in your life, be it a child or a sibling, then they’re probably constantly going on about the latest designer shoes which they *need* to have! Who’s gonna explain to them that these shoes are gonna end up on a list of fashion regrets in the future? Ah, who cares. We’ve all been there, done that. It’s their turn now – buy them the designer shoes they’ve been talking about for months!
8. Polaroid Camera
A polaroid camera will definitely be a hit among teens. They can capture moments that are special to them in a different way in contrast to the usual phone pic – they’ll be thankful for the unique polaroids they get to post on Instagram.
9. Infinity Gauntlet
Is the teen you’re buying a gift for insanely obsessed with something? Such as an entire cinematic universe like Marvel? We’ve all seen Infinity War and we’ve all seen what the purple ballsac did with the snap of his fingers. Seeing as The Avengers are all the rage right now, you could get them an infinity gauntlet so they can act out wiping out half of all living things – you know, regular teen things.
For some, a TV in a teen’s room may be excessive, but it can actually make for great gifts for teens. They’re at the age where they don’t always wanna be hanging out with others and being in a constant battle for the remote can be a serious mood killer. A TV in their room is the perfect solution for that.
