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
google top ten gifts for teenagers and lots of ideas you will find... I used to let them make a list and I would choose from that list, so they still didn't really know what they would get.
Your boy already works at Ben and Jerry's?!!? That's the dream right there! Don't buy the little brat anything.
Teens always want the thing you hadn't thought of/something you can't afford/something they wouldn't let them have.
Its a teen thing - so no suggestions other than (bit lame) to say 'good luck'
I wrote a hub on this
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
the latest release cellphone and tech gadgets plus MOOLAH
Moolah would be great nyahahaha... always...
Agree . When I was still in my teens (not so long ago ) my aunts / uncles will just give us money to buy whatever we want. Or failing that, gift certificates to the nearest mall.
I WOULD SAY
3.pre paid phone
4.game console of some type
10.Last resort MONEY
Great ideas all, Ms. Lavae. I think I may have found what I was looking for in the Ipod dock.
Are these really great gifts? I have a 14 year old and I have no idea what he wants... ca How much is a decent laptop?
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.
Haha it's the hardest question in the world! Just remember that whatever you decide upon, in 12 months it'll be gathering dust in the cupboard (unless it's a vacuum cleaner)
Ha I'll leave that one to the female members of my family to give.
Teen girls?! Sexy underwear?! Things have changed from the 60's....oh wait...no they haven't...
It really depends on what the teen is like. Contrary to popular belief, we aren't all the same And, unless he or she is a horrible brat, the gift *will* still be appreciated.
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.
a stocking full of little gifts is always a hit, even candy and silly little toys
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.
