Holiday Gifts for Teens

If the idea of shopping for a teenager feels particularly scary, don't despair. Here are some great ideas that are certain to please any teen in your life.


Teenagers spend a lot of time surrounded by friends, so any present that can be shared with others is usually a good one. Clear examples include booking an hour of group skating at a local ring or buying a large photo frame that will hold class photos or a collection of smaller ones.


Teens are often going through their own process of "I'm beautiful/I'm ugly," sometimes changing from one to the other in a matter of hours. Beauty products designed to make them feel good about themselves are a great idea. Handmade soaps, bath and beauty sets or even a delicate mirror can all be easily picked up at local malls and are perfect for most teenage girls.


Music is usually a big part of every teen's life. In most cases, however, you're better off staying clear of buying specific CDs or concert DVDs. If the teen is a fan, he either has it already or can easily borrow it from a friend and is not interested in buying it. You're better off buying a MP3 player or getting a gift certificate for iTunes, so they can download the music of their choosing. If you know the teen's favorite band, you can always search on eBay for related memorabilia or get them concert tickets after checking with the parents first to make sure it's ok.


Teens spend lots of time online chatting, sending emails, or downloading things. Anything that can make the technology experience faster or more fun will certainly be welcome. Examples include software, cell phone accessories, hand-held game systems, and even computer games.

When shopping for teens, always try to put yourself out of the equation. Remember that is about what they like, not what you want for them.
