Tween & Teen Gift Ideas >> Holiday Gift Guide

by Christie

Whether you are looking for Christmas presents,  Hanukkah gifts, or birthday treats, buying a teen gift is actually easier than you might imagine. When it comes to teens (and tweens), think name brands and trends. Teens like to get the splurge items parents prefer not to spring for on an everyday basis as well as trendy items that “everyone else has”. Remember being a teen is as much about fitting in as it is about establishing individual identity.

Gaming Gifts

Video games are a big hit with this age group. Fortnight is THE HOTTEST game right now. Many of the games are free downloads, but there are accessories and expansion packs that make the games even more exciting. Be sure you know which gaming console your teen plays on so you get the correct version.  (Note: some of these games contain mature content so make sure you read about them and check the ratings to make sure they are appropriate for your teen before you purchase them.)

There are plenty of accessories to make their gaming even more enjoyable as well if they already own the games.

Gift Experiences Rather than More Stuff

Teens love to get tickets to their favorite concert or favorite sports team. If you know a teen who is into theater or the arts, order tickets to a performance nearby. Head over to StubHub or Ticket Network and search for experiences in your area. And if you missed the window to nab those hard to get tickets no worries, there are almost always plenty of tickets still available (although you may have to pay a bit more).

Popular Teen Clothing and Accessories

Again think name brand anything. For some reason, a teen gift means more if it is branded.

Gift Subscriptions Boxes

Over the years, our teen nieces and nephews have loved receiving gift “installments”  long after the holiday season or their birthdays have come and gone. Generally we turn to Great Gets' post aptly titled Beyond Birchbox | The 20 Best Subscription Boxes for inspiration. We figure why reinvent the wheel. They have done all the research into the best subscription boxes (and actually keep it updated), so why should we duplicate their efforts.  This year we have already sent the FabFitFun Box and yet another Birchbox subscription


Why we like FabFitFun >> Their boxes are filled with full-size products we actually want to try and continue to use!


As much as we love all of Great Gets featured boxes, we cannot in good faith simply ignore Birchbox. Birchbox remains the gold standard of subscription boxes and is hands down our favorite subscription beauty box.

Stocking Stuffers for Teens

Finally, don't forget a few little things to throw into your teen's stocking. And we definitely think it is ok to throw in a few funny items (that may even annoy your teen). Here are just a few ideas. You will definitely want to check out our ever popular Holiday Gift Exchange & Stocking Stuffer Guide!
