Christmas Gifts for Teens They Will Actually Like

Christmas Gifts for Teens They Will Actually Like

Are you looking for the right Christmas gift for the teenager in your life?

Well, you are in luck, because I have two teens and together we’ve put together a list of Christmas gift ideas for teens! As we think of more teen gift ideas I will come back and update this list.

Best Gifts for Teenagers

This gift guide for teens is broken up into multiple sections. We’ve found gifts that are good for just guys or just girls or for both. Some of these gifts are better suited to be stocking stuffers. We’ve broken this guide into categories to better help you find the perfect teen gift. Good luck and happy shopping.

Gifts That Work for Teen Guys and Girls

Gift Cards

If you want to stick to gift cards get them either an iTunes, Amazon, or a Visa gift card. These are all gift cards they will actually use. Avoid gift cards from stores that are harder to find or get to. Typically my kid spends there iTunes gift cards right then and there.

Spotify Membership

A 1 year, Spotify membership  is sure to please any teen. They can listen to their music without commercial.

StitchFixGifts for Teens

A gift card to StickFix would be fun. With the gift card they can use it to order a styling for themselves. A personal stylist selects items to fit his or her tastes and wardrobe needs based on a survey they fill out. I recommend getting a minimum of $135 – $250 on the gift card in order to cover the entire styling which includes five items.

Gift Ideas for Teen Boys

SOUNDOT AF1 In-Ear FM Headphones

SOUNDOT AF1 In-Ear FM Headphones

SOUNDOT AF1 In-Ear FM Headphones from Blackloud are unique because they let iOS device users worldwide access FM radio, even when they don’t have internet, via the headphones’ built-in FM receiver! Today’s iPhones cannot access FM radio without internet. Some Android smartphones contain activated FM chips, but iPhones do not, so iPhone users who want to listen to FM radio must stream it over the internet which drains their data and battery. These headphones let iOS device users tune directly into FM radio to listen live to sports, music, weather and even emergency broadcasts – when and wherever they want or need it.

Treehut Watch

By this age guys will definitely appreciate a minimalist, lightweight Treehut watch. My son picked out a wooden one by Tree Hut, the All Ebony Theo Blue. These watches are American-made, customizable, and can be completely personalized by engraving them with a message to yourself. Plus, they are affordable, the one Noah got costs only $120.

Video Games

You really can’t go wrong with video games, cause let’s face it, that’s all they seem to want to do.

Red Dead Redemption Two (This is a mature game) According to my son Noah, if it hadn’t been for Fortnite this probably would have been game of the year. It’s one of the best games to come out this year. This game is huge and will take up a large amount of storage, so keep this in mind.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate (E for Everyone) This is one of the hottest games on the market, that literally anyone can play. All three of my kids love the previous one and they can play it with their friends since it’s an eight player game.

Teen Guy Stocking Stuffers

POLISHED Gift Set by Dr. Lancer

A POLISHED gift set created by DrLancer and his friend, Ryan Seacrest makes a great teenage guy gift. POLISHED is a dermatologist-developed, tested and approved daily regimen that targets the specific needs of men’s skin and is powered by the highest grade and most innovative ingredients. The line includes an anti-aging serum, dual cleanse and shave, oil-free moisturizer (SPF 30) a daily micro scrub, and a daily lip care.

I think by the time a girl is a teenager, she is probably wearing jewelry every day. Basic button pearl earrings are also a good gift. This is something that can work when she dresses up or when she’s casual. Pearls go with everything.

Teen Girls are most likely wearing makeup. I do not recommend getting them heavy makeup, but I certainly recommend certain things. Here is a list of makeup I recommend for teen girls.

Teen Girl Stocking Stuffers

Block Island Organics: Organic Purifying Facial Cleanser

Block Island Organics: Organic Purifying Facial Cleanser is a natural and organic pampering gift great for a teenage girl.  It’s the perfect stocking stuffer because it is nice & slim and would fit perfectly into a stocking! It’s an antioxidant and vitamin rich, organic formula that cleans and freshens skin with gentle botanicals. This cleanser is the perfect way to remove makeup and impurities that build up during the day and night. Ingredients such as rosehip, chamomile, sunflower, burdock, avocado, olive and more combine to purify skin while maintaining its moisture balance. It’s suitable for all skin types.

Bath Bombs

You can’t go wrong with Lush Bath Bombs, but if you do not want to spend that kind of money on a bath bomb you can make them yourself: DIY Bath Bombs.

PalsSocks!Pals socks

Funny, mismatched socks are always a hit with teens. And if they do not need to match, laundry day gets a lot easier! PalsSocks! are $12.99 a pair. Teen girls will like the Unicorn/Dragon combo.
