What do you get the teen that has everything? How about the teen you don’t know very well? Gift exchanges are becoming more popular than ever at holiday parties for teens. Often, these gifts have to be within a certain price range (usually pretty cheap), but you also want them to be something that others will enjoy. Here are a few ideas for gifts that should appeal to any teen.
Great gifts for teen girls: It’s usually very easy to find inexpensive gifts that will appeal to teen girls. Think cosmetics. Lip glosses (especially flavored ones like Lip Smackers) are always popular, and you can usually find them in cute little gift sets in drugstores. Anything Bath and Body Works is also a good bet. Can’t decide on one fragrance? Get a $10 Bath and Body Works gift card, so the lucky girl can pick out whatever she wants. Looking for something a little different? Fill a gift bag with some cute hair accessories and your must-have hair product. If you love it, chances are others will, too! For something especially fun and individualized, try nail stickers! Amazon has a set of 100 fimo sticks with different designs for less than $8. You will probably want to add a package of nail glue in the gift bag, too, so that your recipient will be able to get the most out of the gift.
Great gifts for teen guys: It’s sometimes more difficult to find gifts for the teen boy in your life. One sure thing is anything electronic, although electronics can get pricy. Look for cheap Xbox games. There are some that sell for $10 or less at Walmart, like
Or what about a new pair of earbuds? These things are cheap, but popular, and they’re always getting lost or broken. Most teenage boys could always use an extra pair or two. Walmart also has fabulous Timex digital sport watches for $12, so if your gift price limit is $10, you can cheat just a little bit, and no one will know the difference. Another great gift for teen guys is any of the Axe body spray gifts. Amazon has a great travel set with body spray, shampoo, and shower gel for less than $9. Or look for the latest comic book or tech or auto trade magazine. Buy a few and wrap them together for an even better present.
The holidays are a great time to give gifts, but these gift ideas will work well for any time of the year and for any occasion. So take this list, grab your cash or debit card, and get shopping!
