Christmas Presents for your Teenager
A look at Teens
When it comes to buying to teens you will it to be an almost impossible task. Teens, you will find, are very fussy. They know exactly what they want. And they are not prone to compromise!
When buying Christmas presents for your teen, it helps to have a general idea of what they want. There are really only a couple of things they care about- it must be the most current trend, and it must have some form of Bling! Juveniles are highly competitive and extreamly critical. They only want the most current fad and to look fabulous!
In this case we're going to stick to the more "generic" categories and reliable standbys. These are somewhat 'safe' and probably as close as we're going to get!
Teens can be hard to understand
The well-groomed teen
Teens are very social and like to look and smell good (especially the girls). If you want to play it safe, try a bath and shower gift basket. A few other suggestions would be hair dryers. electric razors, or colones and perfumes.
You simply can't miss with bling! For those who are wondering, bling is usually jewelry and accessories. It's used to "show off" and impress their peers. Like many primates, as well as many birds, your teenager will love something shinny to show his friends (and the girls). The trick is to get something simple yet elegant.
Teens seem to prefer gold and silver the most and rings and necklaces are best. The good news is these can be inexpensive and easy to fit.
Who do you buy for?
Buying for a teen boy or girl?
when it comes to teens, you can't go too wrong with electronics! they love their phones,tablets, and laptops.
If your going for electronics, stick to cell phones,tablets, PCs, and laptops.They are very sociable now and practically live on these things. Just be sure they are the latest thing as they change quickly! Another choice would be an electronic reader or mp3 music player.
They'll love this
Christmas in the winter
Cloths are very important to young adults. But teens are so fussy about their cloths that it's almost impossible to please them. and please do not try to decipher their fashion code. I've tried for years! Best to stick with jeans or coats and gloves here.
