Gifting To Kids In The Awkward Teenage Phase? Here’s What To Buy Them!


When they are young, buying for kids is easy. In fact, all you need to do is go to the store and find the latest toy craze and stock up! However, when they enter the terrible teens things can become a little more tricky. After all, it’s not like us grownups actually knows what’s cool, right? Luckily, you can get some help with this task by reading the post below.

Something personalized

First off, getting a personalized gift for the teenagers in your life can work really well, if you get it right. What we mean here is that is a good idea to stay away from anything that comes out of a catalog or that is embossed with gold text onto faux leather. Instead, think outside the box a little bit and go for something they can keep forever such as a piece of handmade and personalized jewelry.

Alternatively, you can embrace their status as a new or learner driver and treat them to a personalized registration plate. Something that needs actually cost you too much if you use a site like Cheap Number plates for your purchase. Just think how cool they will think you are if you get them their very own personal number plate as a gift. It’ll be the hit of the day!

Something techy

It’s no surprise that teenagers love tech, and you can use this to your advantage when buying gifts. Of course, there are the traditionally expensive item such as new phones, tablets, and even laptops that are always received with joy. Something you may wish to consider if it is a big birthday they are going off to college soon.

However, you don’t always need to buy these expensive items to hit the techy mark, as there are often many useful accessories that would be gratefully received as well. Consider charging docs, and new headphone here, as well as things like Bluetooth speakers.

Gift cards

I know that every bone in your body rankles against buying a gift card as a present, but sometimes it’s just the most sensible thing to do. Especially, if you have a particularly moody or picky teenager to buy for!

In fact, gift cards can be a smart idea because not only can the recipient buy exactly what they want, but they can also be combined with other cards and gifts of money and put toward something more significant too.

Something edible

What teenager doesn’t like junk food? Of course, this makes an edible gift something that will nearly always go down well. For this to be successful, all you need to do is find out what their favorite snack items are and make them up a gift bouquet or basket.  

In fact, this is a really cheap way of showing that you care, and perfect for when you would prefer to give a physical gift rather than then a voucher or money. You can even add in other items will that you know they would like, to ensure that even the most awkward of teenagers will be super stoked to receive this gift.
