For many, teenagers can be the hardest demographic to buy for. Now your child is starting to test the boundaries, and maybe even rebel, they will be looking for new hobbies and items of clothing to express themselves. Plus, teenagers are always following the latest trends and news on social media – and if they fail to follow it, then this could spell social suicide. While it can be difficult accepting that your little ones are growing up, worry not. Buying for teenagers can be enjoyable, as you can have a lot of fun choosing unique and special gifts. So if you are stuck for ideas, then read on to help you pick up the perfect present just in time for Christmas.
Every teen will love an accessory for their smartphone or the latest item of top tech to keep them up to date and connected along with their peers. From funky and unusual iPhone covers to exercise trackers such as a Fitbit or Apple watch, you don’t need to spend a fortune to put a smile on their faces. If your teen is still a complete bookworm, then you could also consider investing in a Kindle or tablet so that they can download their favorite audiobooks, with the added bonus of being able to listen to music and connect to their social media from the same device. Make sure that you invest in any tech that you splash out on for your kids too – to ensure that any breakages or damages can be easily replaced and rectified.
Something out of this world
If your teen truly owns all of the latest gizmos and gadgets, then why not consider buying them a gift that is truly out of this world? Rather than buy them something dispensable, treat them to something that’ll last them a lifetime. For instance, a name a star gift from Star Registration means that every time they look to the sky, they’ll be able to point to a star that’s named after them. They can show their friends, other family members and whoever they meet in life.
If your teen is keen to keep up with the latest fashion trends, or perhaps they are going through a serious growth spurt, then some cool clothing will make sure that they can begin the New Year in style. This year, puffer jackets, slogan sweatshirts, and bobble hats – think Justin Bieber as an influence – will go down a treat with any hard to please boys. While style icons such as Rihanna and Selena Gomez could help you choose some sparkly leggings or t-shirts for the special girls in your life. Finish it all off with a stylish scarf and the obligatory Christmas socks.
Teens might usually be difficult to buy for, so make sure you keep this list to hand if you are stuck for ideas and time. Think both big and small, but remember that it’s the thought that counts. You don’t have to spend a fortune on your teenager and remember that what they so desperately wanted one minute may fall out of favor the next. Keep this in mind and try and buy them something unique instead.
