Gift Ideas for 9th Graders

Updated on October 13, 2015

What to buy a freshman in high school

Buying for children in high school is tough, buying for a freshman in high school is nearly impossible. Fourteen year olds are in between being children and starting to grow up. Straight from graduating 8th grade, they can't drive, they don't work, and they are starting to learn about clubs and sports in high school.

One obvious gifts is to get them something related to their high school from sweatpants, t-shirts, and letterman jackets, there's pleanty to choose from. It is best to buy these through your local stores and parent organizations. There are other gifts for ninth graders that will help them along the way of high school and getting ready for college.

Video Games

Teenagers play video games all day long and all night long. That hasn't changed in 30 years. Call of Duty has new releases about every other year on Wii U, PS3, PS4, and Xbox, which is sure to be a favorite of every 13 year old boy. Every year their is a new release of Madden Football, FIFA, MLB, NBA, and now NCAA football.

Awesome Building Toys

I know many high school students that are still into Star Wars and Star Wars Legos have great sets to challenge your student.

It's never too early to start thinking about the PSAT

Getting your Freshman to start thinking about and practicing the standardized tests like PSAT, SAT, and ACT is well worth the time.

Jewelry for the Freshman Class

Some great gifts for Freshman girls in High School are jewelry that has the year the student will graduate. To figure out which year a ninth grader is, add four years to the year the entered their Freshman year. For example, if a student is a freshman in 2016, then their graduation year is 2020.

Video Games for 9th Graders

Well, my ten year old wants me to buy him mature rated games, Hopefully 9th graders are mature enough for these.

9th Grade Students Love a Kindle

Books for 9th Graders include Lord or the Rings, the Hobbit, and many others. Finding a great digital book reader like an Amazon Kindle, Apple iPad, or Barnes & Noble Nook.

If you can't find, a gift card is still a great gift for a 9th grader

Giving cash or a gift card doesn't have to be boring when paired with a gift card holder or puzzle.

What did your 9th grader enjoy the most?
