Give the Gift of Money

Many teens appreciate receiving cash as a gift. It is certainly an easy gift to give when you're not sure what the recipient wants or already has. But money does not seem like a really personal present. To make it more personal, you could giftwrap the money in a wallet. This does not have to be a leather one either. You can easily make your own with just a piece of paper or card, a printer, a pair of scissors and some glue.

Here are links to the printable money wallets on the right:

With this awesome pen, you will write on special dot paper while recording a lecture or meeting etc. Later you can play back exactly what was said at the particular time you were writing a particular word or drawing a particular diagram. Great for highschool or college.

Please note: there are different models available - the different GB indicate roughly how many hours of recording can be stored on the pen eg 4GB holds approximately 400 hours, 8GB holds approximately 800 hours.

 

Accessories for the Livescribe Smartpen

To use this pen, you will need special paper which is covered with tiny dots in a special pattern. As you move the pen, the camera inside records the dots on the page, thus recording the position on the page. These notebooks include these special pages.

And of course you can get ink refills so that you don't have to buy a new pen every time you run out of ink!

A USB flash drive will always come in handy because it is so very easy to lend to friends, and is small and portable, fitting on a keyring or in his pocket .

We love giving flashdrives as presents to guys. They are small, light, and not easily breakable, and so are perfect for sending overseas. We often also preload with something that the recipient will find useful or enjoyable.

 

Novelty USB Flash Drives

Who said that flash drives need to be square and boring. These styles will also suit the guys and will make fun and useful items to add to their keyrings. At this age, much of a boy's school work will be transferred using a USB flashdrive, so one of these will be useful and a great talking point.

Apple iPad (16GB, Wi-Fi, White)

So many things can be done with the Ipad from watching movies to browsing on line, to playing games, to reading the newspaper, and much, much more!

Apple iPad Accessories

If he already has an Ipad, he may appreciate one of these great accessories. My son recommends the screen protector and the protective case. The keyboard is an optional extra, depending how your guy will be using his Ipad. Also make sure that you get the accessories which will fit his particular model.

Music CDs and Downloads

Type the name of his favorite artist, band, or album in the search box to to see what CDs are available on Amazon. I prefer give something physical but you you could also give a gift card so he can download his favorite tunes. Another alternative is to buy some music downloads and put them on a usb flash drive.
