Christmas Presents for your Teenager

Updated on December 10, 2014

A look at Teens

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!

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.

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.

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 music player

Cloths are very important to young adults. So fussy 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 here.

      Here is a great Christmas gift idea for a teenager. The Zombie Plant Grow Kit. It "PLAYS DEAD" when you touch it, then suddenly comes back to life. Google it! It's pretty cool.

      I think that you are right about one thing.You just need to know what the teen wants. I think that there are some boys that would welcome bling, but there are also a lot that would frown about it. You just have to know the teen your shopping for.
