I've been kicking around some ideas lately, but it's hard to settle on physical gifts for teens instead of just gift certificates or a wad of cash. I could always spring for an iPhone, but the monthly service fees are pretty high (and we all know who's paying the bill once your teenage son loses his job at Ben & Jerry's). Anyone got any bright ideas?
Dont spend lots of dollars Christmas is supposed to be the thought that counts. It is too commercial these days. Enjoy their company and be a family together sharing. These are the important things for kids really. Make memories for them
I have two teens and they are tough to buy for, one in college and one in middle school. We've told them both we are cutting back (hubby is unemployed) this year, but we have our Christmas account. My SIL picked up a CoolPix camera on Black Friday for my daughter for 89.00 (1/2 off) so I'll be buying that from her to give to my daughter. I'm also getting her some college logo clothing. My son - he is a tough one! If he could have an unlimited snowboard pass for the winter he'd be happy
My nephew (14) has all the latest gadgets so that's not an option but he does go to the movies every weekend so it's gonna be a gift card to the movie theater he goes to. That way he can do something he enjoys and it doesn't cost him a thing.
wow.. i think i am like the only teen in the world that sad i don't get me anything.. well i did ask for something but its not something that will brake in 3 years... see my fiancee is in boot camp for marines.. and he graduates in Feb. so i asked my family to help me get there. it may seam like a lot but I'm paying for most of it.. even if i wasn't going there i would probably just want to see my family.. i think that people spend to much for Christmas... just make something..
Well it depends, is it a boy or a girl and what are they into?
Girls: probably boots (Ugg boots), bags or purses, perfume, gift certificates for clothing stores, iPods, cannot go wrong with books either.
Boys: if into sports then something sports related, it could be video games as well, books if they like to read.. there are tons of options. I wrote a few hubs on buying gifts check them out and tell me what you think.
My son is hard to buy for too because he wants things like a copper tube, capacitors, things like that. I don't know what to tell anyone when they ask what he wants other than money to get these things. Though he does want a particular computer game.
